    The Movie of the Month for March 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It’s been said before and it will most likely be said again – when it comes to winning the Movie of the Month poll, persistence really does pay off. This month, in another very close race, the winner is someone who has submitted films fairly consistently but never won once. That was the case until today, on his 20th attempt at winning, so it gives me great...

    LAMBCAST #361 HOWARD THE DUCK MOTM

    I’m not sure what was more unlikely – a humanoid duck named Howard being dragged from his home on a duck-filled planet by a giant space laser, or Howard the Duck winning the Movie of the Month poll, but here we are.

    Jay Cluitt was joined by the film’s champion, The Vern, as well as Todd Liebenow and Damien Riley to discuss this so-called new breed of hero, and the many, many things wrong with this...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    Once again it has been proven that one of the best ways for your chosen film to become elected Movie of the Month is to get in contact with some of the film-makers behind it on Twitter. That surely must be the reason why, after champion Vern hit up the likes of Lloyd Kaufman and Lea Thompson, who both either replied or retweeted, Howard the Duck became the latest...

    LAMBCAST #356 EX MACHINA MOTM

    It seems very fitting that the show upon which we discussed Ex Machina, a film about the testing and issues involved with Artificial Intelligence, was fraught with so many technical difficulties. Dropped guests, lost connections and dying batteries led to one of the more eventful recordings, and that can mean only one thing – more outtakes!

    Jay Cluitt was joined by the film’s champion, Kristen Lopez, along with Nick...

    The Movie of the Month for January 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    In the past few years January’s Movie of the Month has traditionally been something of a cult choice – this hasn’t been planned, it’s just how it worked out – with the likes of TimeCop. Southland Tales and Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins taking the crown, but for 2017 the options were all a little more well...

    December is just a few days away, so here at the LAMB we’re starting to think about Christmas, and that can mean only one thing… the December Movie of the Month Christmas Special!

    LAMBCAST #348 AND THEN THERE WERE NONE MOTM

    It’s Movie of the Month time again on the Lambcast, and for the month of November we’re looking at a largely forgotten 1945 Agatha Christie adaptation, And Then There Were None, which sees 10 strangers summoned to a secluded island by a mystery host, only to find themselves killed off one by one.

    Newcomer Sean Homrig championed the film, and was joined by Jeanette Ward, Lindsay Street and regular host Jay...
