    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!

    Round 2 of October’s MOTM poll tournament is here! There were some tightly fought bouts in the first round, but only four films can move on, so let’s take a look at the results from round 1:

    There we go, the four films moving on are Trick R Treat (2007), Mandy (2018), Candyman (1992) and Host (2020). It’s possible there’s some recency bias on display as the newest film in each match-up has proceeded onto...

    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...

    Vote for August 2020’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s movie of the month! August is the birthday month of me, the LAMB Shepherd, so I have picked all ten choices for this month’s poll. I looked back at the history of the MOTM feature and realised that not many films have covered aspects of the non-white experience, so in the spirit of elevating POC voices in cinema I consulted with Lambcast regular Aaron Neuwirth to devise a list of ten films that...
