    LAMBCAST #483: THE BREADWINNER MOTM

    For our first dedicated female-directed special Movie of the Month we’re looking at a film that doesn’t shy away from tackling some big issues head on. The Breadwinner may not be the most well known film, but it’s still worthy of seeking out.

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Tony, as well as Jess to discuss the animation, lack of bread-making and many depressing story aspects of the...

    The Movie of the Month for June 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! June is our first ever female directed special (but not our first ever female-directed MOTM) and we had fifteen female-directed films submitted to choose from, ranging from classic noir to modern horror, through 80s fun and gritty comic book movies. Basically, if you’re looking for a varied list of films directed by women to sink your teeth into, look no further. However there can be...

    LAMBCAST #478 HEREDITARY MOTM

    No, your eyes do not deceive you, we’re covering a horror movie in May, and a recent one at that. Up is down, left is right, heads will roll. Hereditary received much critical acclaim in 2018, but what do we on the Lambcast think of it?

    Jay and Richard were joined by Damien, Getter and the film’s champion, Sean, to discuss pigeons, poles and Paimon, amongst many other things.

    The Movie of the Month for May 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! It seems many of the LAMB flock think that the Movie of the Month poll is a place to showcase films that have a terrible reputation, and it’s an opportunity to make Jay and Richard watch something awful, hence why the likes of D.C. Cab, Battlefield Earth and Jury Duty were all submitted in this month’s poll. Fortunately none of them won, but the winner...

    LAMBCAST #474 SPECIES FRANCHISE MOTM

    The Godfather! Back to the Future! Indiana Jones! Airport! … Species? That’s right, the latest addition to the ranks of our Movie of the Month franchise specials is the Species franchise, which also joins Airport in garnering my response of “Wait, that’s a franchise?”

    As the series’ champion, Vern is once again hosting another Movie of the Month show about a subject with a less than fresh...

    LAMBCAST #471 SILVERADO MOTM

    It’d be understandable if you thought you were experiencing deja vu, as it’s movie of the month time, we’re talking about a western, and there’s a Kirkham at the helm of the show’s feature discussion, but whilst there are some similarities between Silverado and Tombstone, this is a different (and potentially better?) film in its own right.

    Amanda Kirkham is once again in charge of...

    The Movie of the Month for March 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! A very diverse group of eight movies were submitted for the poll, many of the champions campaigned, but one did it better than the others, so for March we’ll be continuing our now two-film-run of westerns as we look at Silverado!

    Congratulations to Amanda Kirkham from Hollywood Consumer for successfully championing Silverado to victory. As such she gets to host...

    LAMBCAST #465 TOMBSTONE MOTM

    It’s movie of the month time! To celebrate Richard’s birthday we let him pick the roster of films, the LAMB community voted and Tombstone won!

    Richard and his huckleberry Jay were joined by Tombstone fans Nick Rehak and Damien Riley, as well as first time viewer and self described disliker of westerns, Zoe Rose Smith. Was she converted? Was everyone recording as sick as Val Kilmer? Were all their...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    To celebrate the Lambcast co-host’s birthday month, we let Richard select all the contenders for February’s Movie of the Month poll, and he’ll be hosting the upcoming Lambcast on it, so the surprise here isn’t who wins, but which film they picked that everyone else voted for. It was a very close-run race, with just one vote separating the top two...

    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...

    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...
