    LAMBCAST #488 DROP DEAD GORGEOUS MOTM

    Jesus loves winners, and that means he must be a fan of Drop Dead Gorgeous, the wearer of July’s Movie of the Month tiara and sash, so let’s talk about it!

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Doug, as well as Sean and newcomer Jon to discuss why Drop Dead Gorgeous was a critical and commercial failure, why it absolutely should not have been, plus lots of comparisons to the far...

    Vote for August’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s Movie of the Month! Just like last year, I’ve selfishly commandeered this month for only my choices, which ni the past has led to a month dedicated to Snakes on a Plane, what could go wrong? This year I’ve submitted 9 films all celebrating a significant birthday (ending in an “0”). The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are the choices:

    The Movie of the Month for July 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! We’re back to a no-theme month for July, which led to a nicely diverse mix of films, but as ever there can be only one winner. Fortunately we didn’t have to resort to a talent show or swimsuit competition to determine the outcome, because the winning film for July is… Drop Dead Gorgeous!

    Congratulations to first-time MOTM champion Doug Jamieson from...

    LAMBCAST #483: THE BREADWINNER MOTM

    For our first dedicated female-directed special Movie of the Month we’re looking at a film that doesn’t shy away from tackling some big issues head on. The Breadwinner may not be the most well known film, but it’s still worthy of seeking out.

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Tony, as well as Jess to discuss the animation, lack of bread-making and many depressing story aspects of the...

    The Movie of the Month for June 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! June is our first ever female directed special (but not our first ever female-directed MOTM) and we had fifteen female-directed films submitted to choose from, ranging from classic noir to modern horror, through 80s fun and gritty comic book movies. Basically, if you’re looking for a varied list of films directed by women to sink your teeth into, look no further. However there can be...

    LAMBCAST #478 HEREDITARY MOTM

    No, your eyes do not deceive you, we’re covering a horror movie in May, and a recent one at that. Up is down, left is right, heads will roll. Hereditary received much critical acclaim in 2018, but what do we on the Lambcast think of it?

    Jay and Richard were joined by Damien, Getter and the film’s champion, Sean, to discuss pigeons, poles and Paimon, amongst many other things.

    The Movie of the Month for May 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! It seems many of the LAMB flock think that the Movie of the Month poll is a place to showcase films that have a terrible reputation, and it’s an opportunity to make Jay and Richard watch something awful, hence why the likes of D.C. Cab, Battlefield Earth and Jury Duty were all submitted in this month’s poll. Fortunately none of them won, but the winner...

    LAMBCAST #474 SPECIES FRANCHISE MOTM

    The Godfather! Back to the Future! Indiana Jones! Airport! … Species? That’s right, the latest addition to the ranks of our Movie of the Month franchise specials is the Species franchise, which also joins Airport in garnering my response of “Wait, that’s a franchise?”

    LAMBCAST #471 SILVERADO MOTM

    It’d be understandable if you thought you were experiencing deja vu, as it’s movie of the month time, we’re talking about a western, and there’s a Kirkham at the helm of the show’s feature discussion, but whilst there are some similarities between Silverado and Tombstone, this is a different (and potentially better?) film in its own right.

    Amanda Kirkham is once again in charge of...
