    Vote for August 2018’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s Movie of the Month! We’re doing something different this month. Basically, I’ve gotten sick of watching the films everyone submits, so this month I, Jay, your shepherd, am submitting all the films to choose from, to guarantee we’ll be covering something I like. I’ve made it a varied bunch though, and spaced them out to cover one film from each decade of the past 100 years. The...

    The Movie of the Month for July 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It was another close battle between several worthy contenders, but this month’s winner is a film that’s been submitted several times, but which I’d never even heard of before it was first championed, so I’m eager to find out how good it actually it. For July our Movie of the Month is… Murder by Death!…

    LAMBCAST #430: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION MOTM

    The latest Movie of the Month show is here! It’s been dragged through a river of shit and come out clean(ish) the other side. That’s right, this month is all about The Shawshank Redemption.

    Freshly-impounded co-host Richard Kirkham took the lead, and was joined by the film’s champion, Rob, along with Damien and Howard. And before go ahead and dismiss the show off hand as being a full-on love-in and...

    The Movie of the Month for June 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    We had a bumper crop of thirteen movies to pick from for the latest MOTM poll. That may have been too many, causing the votes to be split amongst several films, or the outcome might not have changed regardless of how many films were submitted. Either way, there’s only one winner, so for the month of June we’ll be talking about… The Shawshank...

    LAMBCAST #421: INDIANA JONES FRANCHISE MOTM

    Our Spielberg coverage concludes this week with a very well-timed movie of the month win for the Indiana Jones franchise, a collection of four films varying from some of the greatest ever made to at least one we’d have preferred not to discuss, but dammit we did anyway.

    Jay was joined by the franchise’s champion, Jeanette Ward, along with Todd Liebenow, Richard Kirkham and Getter Trumsi to dig into and...

    The Movie of the Month for April 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    As is customary, our April Movie of the Month is a franchise special, and as usual we had a pretty diverse range of franchises put forward, from animation to superheroes, indie romance to, well, Tremors, but there’s no real shock as to what eventually won, although some others were chasing like a giant boulder rolling behind it for some time. If that’s not a big...
