    Lambcast #572  MOTM Le Samourai

    February was Richard’s Birthday Month and it has become a tradition here for the hosts of the show to select the choices up for Movie of the Month at that time. There were eight options and the Lamb community chose the one blindspot on Richard’s list. It turns out that it was also new to some of the other guests on the show as well.

    The stylish and deliberately paced Le Samourai from Jean-Pierre Melville...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2021 is…

    It’s Movie of the Month announcement time! For February we let Richard, the host of the Lambcast, make all the choices, because he has to endure the other winners for the rest of the year, and this time around he picked, shocking no-one, a bunch of films from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. You all voted, one of them won, and the film we’ll be celebrating in February 2021 is… Le Samouraï!

    No congratulations...

    Lambcast #566 “The Red Shoes” MOTM

    While it is still possible that 2021 could go even further south than it’s predecessor, we at the LAMB look around and see signs of hope. After all, there is a vaccine now available and…well at least we have that. Also, “The Red Shoes” finally will move off of your monthly ballot for Movie of the Month because it won. If there is any hope for movie based podcasts this year, it will be in the form of looking at our rich...

    The Movie of the Month for January 2021 is…

    2021 is almost upon us, and with this new beginning comes another year of movie of the month winners. It therefore seems apt to begin the year with a first-time winner. Of the eight films submitted, as always there is only one winner, so for January we’ll be looking at the 1948 Powell & Pressburger classic, The Red Shoes!

    Congratulations go to the film’s champion, Meg Hyland of Meg’s Movie...
