    Lambscores: Incredibles 2, Tag

    For the first time in recent memory there’s more than one film up for review this week and I’ve seen the entire slate! Thanks to an early UK screening of Incredibles 2 I got to see that a couple of weeks ago (it’s only been released in the UK today), and I’d been looking forward to Tag since I heard the concept a couple of years ago. As it turned out I enjoyed them both but I don’t expect either...

    Lambscores: Hereditary, Hotel Artemis, Ocean’s 8

    2018 is proving to be quite a good year for movies – so far at least. We’re not even halfway through the year’s Lambscores and we’ve already had eight movies with a collated score of at least 4/5! Joining those ranks this week is Hereditary, which at least one of our members described as the scariest film he’s ever seen, which is fairly high on the list of reasons why I’ve yet to see it. I also...

    Vote for August 2018’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s Movie of the Month! We’re doing something different this month. Basically, I’ve gotten sick of watching the films everyone submits, so this month I, Jay, your shepherd, am submitting all the films to choose from, to guarantee we’ll be covering something I like. I’ve made it a varied bunch though, and spaced them out to cover one film from each decade of the past 100 years. The...

    Lambscores: All By Himself

    Hey, guess what? A new Star Wars movie got released, and whilst some people really liked it, others didn’t, and a bunch more thought it was mostly OK. Shocking, right? Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Solo: A Star Wars Story:

    Acting School 101 – July Introduction – Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Welcome Back Students!

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    Like The Director’s Chair series being run by Tony, I think that this reignited series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.

    I plan to try and focus on an actor or actress every month who has a birthday in that given...

  • The Movie of the Month for July 2018 is…

    The Movie of the Month for July 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It was another close battle between several worthy contenders, but this month’s winner is a film that’s been submitted several times, but which I’d never even heard of before it was first championed, so I’m eager to find out how good it actually it. For July our Movie of the Month is… Murder by Death!…
