    Lambcast #601 Enter the Dragon: MOTM

    Those Kicks were Fast as Lightning and it was a little bit frightening.

    One of the reasons a novelty song about Kung Fu could become a #1 hit world wide is that Bruce Lee had made martial arts films the hot ticket item of the decade. Although he did not live long enough to see it happen, his movie also also made it to number one around the world on the box office charts. If any of you are only familiar with Bruce Lee from the...

    The Movie of the Month for August 2021 is…

    It’s August! Another month, another Movie of the Month poll to determine our chosen film of focus for the next four-and-a-bit weeks. This year we’ve introduced a new special category for August, films predominantly not in the English language. A wide variety of nine films were submitted, votes were cast, and now it’s time to announce the winner. The Movie of the Month for August 2021 is… The Orphanage (El...

    The Movie of the Month for July 2021 is…

    July was a bumper month for MOTM votes, with several of the potential champions doing a whole heap of campaigning for their particular film to be crowned the next winner. There were five options, and despite one being a timely action behemoth and another getting a lot of support online, it was Vern’s sheer, dogged onslaught of campaigning that led him to victory with almost half the total votes. The Movie of the Month for July 2021...

    Lambcast #588  MOTM Jennifer’s Body

    June is reserved for a Movie of the Month that comes from a female director. A Woman’s perspective is welcome any month but we don’t want it to get neglected by the capricious nature of voting so all entries for this Episode were directed by women and Karyn Kusama’s 2009 teen girl horror comedy topped the returns. It was a film expected to do better, widely criticized on it’s release, and having developed a much better...

    The Movie of the Month for June 2021 is…

    It’s time to announce June’s female-directed special Movie of the Month winner! Of course films directed by women can be championed any month of the year, but to guarantee at least one is in the conversation at some point every twelve months, we limit the films to only those directed by women for every June. Amongst this month’s options we had three very different horror or horror-adjacent films championed, and in fact they...

  • Lambcast #584 Koyaanisqatsi MOTM

    Lambcast #584 Koyaanisqatsi MOTM

    It was with some trepidation that this podcast was set up. Kotaanisqatsi is an experimental film that uses visual images and an original Phillip Glass score to create what might be called a 90 minute visual poem. The absense of actores, script, dialogue, plot etc. suggested that this film might be difficult to process much less watch.

    Come and be surprised at how much this week’s Lambcast crew was able to chew...
