    The Movie of the Month for June 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    We had a bumper crop of thirteen movies to pick from for the latest MOTM poll. That may have been too many, causing the votes to be split amongst several films, or the outcome might not have changed regardless of how many films were submitted. Either way, there’s only one winner, so for the month of June we’ll be talking about… The Shawshank...

    Morons! Donuts! The Litmus Configuration! It’s time for Midnight Run!

    For the latest movie of the month Jay was joined by Todd, Richard, Sean and Will to discuss an ultimate so-called guys’ movie, Midnight Run!

    Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week, a new game, and a near-constant barrage of incredulity at people who haven’t seen classic movies or TV shows.

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    Once again it has been proven that, at least when it comes to the Movie of the Month poll, persistence certainly pays off, as this month’s winner is a film that has been put forward time and time again, and it has finally achieved the hallowed title of Movie of the Month! That’s right, for the month of May we’ll be talking about… Midnight...

    LAMBCAST #421: INDIANA JONES FRANCHISE MOTM

    Our Spielberg coverage concludes this week with a very well-timed movie of the month win for the Indiana Jones franchise, a collection of four films varying from some of the greatest ever made to at least one we’d have preferred not to discuss, but dammit we did anyway.

    Jay was joined by the franchise’s champion, Jeanette Ward, along with Todd Liebenow, Richard Kirkham and Getter Trumsi to dig into and...

    The Movie of the Month for April 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    As is customary, our April Movie of the Month is a franchise special, and as usual we had a pretty diverse range of franchises put forward, from animation to superheroes, indie romance to, well, Tremors, but there’s no real shock as to what eventually won, although some others were chasing like a giant boulder rolling behind it for some time. If that’s not a big...

    LAMBCAST #416: THE MUMMY (1999) MOTM

    It’s a podcast, what harm even came from listening to a podcast?

    It’s Mother Day’s in the UK this Sunday, and today is International Woman’s Day, so what better time to discuss 1999’s The Mummy? Jay was joined by Audrey Fox, Kristen Lopez, Zoe Rose Smith and Richard Kirkham to talk about the Stephen Sommers’ action-horror reboot in all it’s tomb-raiding, flesh-eating, fez-wearing...

    The Movie of the Month for March 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    The votes are in for the next Movie of the Month. The site has been down for a little while so I wasn’t sure if we’d get to actually announce this in time, but fortunately everything is sorted now (thanks Joel!) so normality can resume. As the voting time was therefore a little limited, any of this month’s participants are more than welcome to resubmit their...

    LAMBCAST #412: TWELVE MONKEYS MOTM

    I think at this point we can definitively say that if you want to win a Movie of the Month poll, your best bet is to submit a time travel movie (other than Primer of course).

    Chris Staron, on his first MOTM attempt, claimed victory and hosted the discussion on Terry Gilliam’s post-apocalyptic time travel film, and was joined by Jess Manzo, Sean Homrig, Robert Zerbe and Jay, making this another episode of Jay...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    The votes are in for the next Movie of the Month. It was a close call this month, with four movies all tied for first place for a long time, but a last minute run took two ahead of the pack, leaving the next winner to take the pole position by just one vote. So, for February 2018 the movie of the month is… Twelve Monkeys.…

    LAMBCAST #408: ISHTAR MOTM

    It’s January, the month where the studios seem to dump their non-awards-worthy fare, so instead of wasting your time listening to podcasts about bad movies, why not listen to us talk about… oh, darn, we’re discussing Ishtar. Sorry about that.

    Jay was joined by Ishtar‘s champion Richard, along with a panel ranging from bemused to annoyed, but made up of Rebecca, Sean and Chris.

    The Movie of the Month for January 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    There have been a few exceptions, but traditionally – an unintentionally – the Movie Of The Month for January is often a film not widely regarded as being critically, um, good. Whether that is the case for January 2018 is yet to be determined, but for now let’s say that if the film turns out to be terrible, I for one won’t be all that surprised....

    LAMBCAST #403: MOTM DIE HARD

    Ho Ho Ho! It’s December, and the holiday season is in full swing, so it’s time for our latest Christmas-special Movie of the Month, and really what could be more festive than terrorists taking over a skyscraper full of hostages?

    That’s right, it’s time to grab your biggest teddy bear, put on your filthiest undershirt, remove your shoes and make fists with your toes because we’re jumping off the roof...
