    LAMBCAST #461 TALK TO HER MOTM

    Pedro Almodóvar has made some incredible films, but this is the first time we’re exploring his work on the Lambcast. January’s Movie of the Month is Talk To Her, a gripping and powerful story of two hospitalised women and the men who care for them.

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Rebecca Sharp, as well as Jessica Manzo and a Lambcast newcomer, Marya Gates. Also on tap: Rants, Raves...

    Vote for February 2019’s Movie of the Month!

    Just like last August, we’re doing something a little different for February’s Movie of the Month. In fact, every other month will be themed in some way. As we celebrated Jay’s birthday in August last year, so this year we’re celebrating Richard’s birthday, and as such he has selected the range of films to choose for February’s Movie of the Month. The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are...

    The Movie of the Month for January 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It’s almost a tradition at this point that January’s Movie of the Month winner is a film that’s, for some reason or another, deemed not great by most people. There have been exceptions, but just like with American cinemas January could be seen as a kind of dumping ground for films people don’t necessarily want to watch. Not so for January 2019! This...

    LAMBCAST #455: MEET ME IN ST LOUIS MOTM

    It’s that time of year again, holiday season! Which holiday? If you’re talking about Meet Me in St. Louis, all of them I guess, but specifically Christmas.

    The classic Judy Garland musical has joined the ranks of Die Hard 1 & 2, Batman Returns and Gremlins amidst our file of festive films, and this show is dedicated to it. First time Movie of the Month champion Amanda...

    The Movie of the Month for December 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For December’s MOTM poll we once again took a festive-themed diversion into primarily Christmas films, with a Hanukkah one thrown in for good measure this year too, and as with previous winners (Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Gremlins, Batman Returns), the winner isn’t a film that everybody might consider a holiday film, but which...

    The Movie of the Month for November 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For November’s MOTM poll there were five films submitted, but it was really only a two horse race between the competitors undertaking the most campaigning. Those two were Simon and Rob with The Hunt For Red October and Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It was an incredibly close run but, the winner, by just three votes is… The Hunt For Red...

    The Movie of the Month for October 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It’s October, which means this month’s MOTM is a horror pick, and damn if there weren’t some horrific choices in the poll this month. This was a tighly-run and ever-changing race, with some last-ditch surges, Twitter involvements from relevant film-makers and an overhanging threat that we’d end up talking about Tusk. Fortunately that...
