    Acting School 101 – October 2018 Introduction – Jeff Goldblum

    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...

    LAMBCAST #443 SHOWGIRLS MOTM

    You know what happens when Vern submits a film for Movie of the Month? We end up talking about Showgirls.

    After Howard the Duck, Jay basically vowed to never let Vern host a MOTM show again, yet somehow this happened, so in protest Jay isn’t here this week and Richard reluctantly took the hosting reigns to try and wrangle Vern, Chris and Doug towards a sensible discussion of a movie that begs the...

    LAMBCAST #438: SNAKES ON A PLANE MOTM

    OK, so it’s about snakes, and they’re on a plane and, well, yeah that’s about it really.

    In an unprecedented turn of events Jay went all megalomaniacal shepherd on everyone and forbade any and all other Movie of the Month submissions for August, monopolising the board and only submitting films he wanted to see.
