    Vote for February 2022’s Movie of the Month!

    The tradition, if you can call a three year old practice a tradition, has been that the hosts of the Lambcast choose the MOTM Poll selection for their Birthday Month. Until a full time co host joins the show, that means you will only suffer once a year with such selections. February is Richard’s Birthday month so here are the selections you get to vote for, with a brief explanation of why each is offered.

    It’s the holiday season!

This time around the film in question might be vying with Batman...

Can a film that steps on so many toes really work, especially in today’s more sensitive culture? That is one of the many questions that gets discussed on this week’s Lambcast.
