    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...

    LAMBCAST #451: THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER MOTM

    Tension! Heated debates! Outright arguments! Yes, they’re all in the film, but they’re also all in this week’s podcast!

    Jay and Richard were joined by Simon, Will and Chris to discuss November’s Movie of the Month, The Hunt For Red October, which was a frequently-viewed classic for most, but a first-time watch for our usual host. Simon commandeered the helm for his first MOTM victory and leading...

    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...

    LAMBCAST #448: THE HAUNTING MOTM

    It’s time for the some horror over on the Lambcast!

    Traditionally the run up to Halloween is dedicated to horror films and franchise here at the LAMB, and that’s no different this year with our horror-themed Movie of the Month. This time around the original 1963 version of The Haunting is our focus, with its champion Howard Casner taking his first seat in the MOTM host chair. He’s joined by Sean, Tony,...

    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...

    LAMBCAST #443 SHOWGIRLS MOTM

    You know what happens when Vern submits a film for Movie of the Month? We end up talking about Showgirls.

    After Howard the Duck, Jay basically vowed to never let Vern host a MOTM show again, yet somehow this happened, so in protest Jay isn’t here this week and Richard reluctantly took the hosting reigns to try and wrangle Vern, Chris and Doug towards a sensible discussion of a movie that begs the...

    The Movie of the Month for September 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    We’re back to the usual format for September’s MOTM, and the usual method of winning – campaigning a lot – has won out again, and it has done so for one of our most winningest MOTM champions. There was a wide variety of movies pitched for September’s poll, but the winner is… Showgirls!…

    LAMBCAST #438: SNAKES ON A PLANE MOTM

    OK, so it’s about snakes, and they’re on a plane and, well, yeah that’s about it really.

    In an unprecedented turn of events Jay went all megalomaniacal shepherd on everyone and forbade any and all other Movie of the Month submissions for August, monopolising the board and only submitting films he wanted to see. The LAMB revolted and selected probably the film he was least excited for on the entire list,...

    This week we’re covering the latest movie of the month, which in this case is 1976’s Murder by Death, featuring a star-studded list of both actors and characters. Does the podcast make more sense than the film? Listen to find out as Jay and Richard are joined by the film’s champion, Sean, as well as Kellee and...

    The Movie of the Month for August 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    There’s no surprise who the winning champion for August’s Movie of the Month is – it could only be me, as I banned anyone else from submitting films, as is my megalomaniacal way. No, the surprise this month is which of the ten films we’ll be discussing. I was going to be happy with whatever won, but I honestly didn’t think that, considering 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!…
