    Lambscores: Pacific Rim: Unsaning

    Two films for you this week: the big-budget popcorn sequel to Pacific Rim and the no-budget shot-entirely-on-an-iPhone Unsane from Steven Soderbergh. I don’t know about you, but I for one would like to see an experiment where the production processes of these two movies was switched. What would Soderbergh do with a big pile of money when it came to shooting a very small film? And think of the ingenuity required to...

    Acting School 101 – May Introduction – Annette Bening

    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...

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    LAMBCAST #421: INDIANA JONES FRANCHISE MOTM

    Our Spielberg coverage concludes this week with a very well-timed movie of the month win for the Indiana Jones franchise, a collection of four films varying from some of the greatest ever made to at least one we’d have preferred not to discuss, but dammit we did anyway.

    Jay was joined by the franchise’s champion, Jeanette Ward, along with Todd Liebenow, Richard Kirkham and Getter Trumsi to dig into and...

    Lambscores: Annihilation for Kids

    The week we’re looking at today heralded quite a few releases, but evidently not many of you actually saw Gringo, The Leisure Seeker, Strangers: Prey at Night or The Hurricane Heist, as only a handful of reviews were submitted for them all in total. Fear not though, as also released that week was a much bigger movie, albeit one that didn’t exactly set our critical world aflame with heralds of...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion: Acting School 101 – Michelle Pfeiffer ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Michelle Pfeiffer is our actress of the month in the newly-revived Acting School 101 feature, being hosted by me, MovieRob. Alongside the monthly blogathon held here on the LAMB site, I will also be hosting a monthly podcast episode devoted to the actor and their roles, and wouldn’t you know it but that’s this very show here!

    Lambscores: Deadly Sparrow

    Just two films for you this week, neither of which I thought looked particularly good, but that could be more for my general disinterest in Jennifer Lawrence than anything else. Anyway, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Red Sparrow and Death Wish:

    Lambscores: Let’s Play Annihilation

    We’ve got two movies for you this week. First up is Annihilation, Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina, which went straight to Netflix everywhere outside of the US (fine by me, it means I’ve seen it), and then there’s Game Night, which sounds far better than expected. Check them out, and check out the reviews from the LAMB community:

    The Movie of the Month for April 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    As is customary, our April Movie of the Month is a franchise special, and as usual we had a pretty diverse range of franchises put forward, from animation to superheroes, indie romance to, well, Tremors, but there’s no real shock as to what eventually won, although some others were chasing like a giant boulder rolling behind it for some time. If that’s not a big...
