    LAMBCAST #549 SING STREET MOTM

    Sometimes it takes perseverance, hard work and trying again and again to achieve success. That was the case for this month’s Movie of the Month winner, Audrey, who put Sing Street forward time and again until it eventually defeated the other competitors. That’s not so much a rule for the film though, in which sometimes you can just pick up a guitar and almost immediately be a great musician. Regardless, this week’...

    Vote for October’s Movie of the Month, Horror Special, Round 2!

    Vote for October’s Movie of the Month, Horror Special!

    It’s time to vote for October’s movie of the month! Hold up though, this month is a bit different. Not only is October’s Movie of the Month horror-themed, but it appears some ghostly gremlins have gotten into the polling plug-in, and are limiting the poll to at most three movies. This is a problem, as we’ve got ten! So for this month, and until this issue is resolved, we’ll be determining the MOTM with a...
