    The Movie of the Month for June 2021 is…

    It’s time to announce June’s female-directed special Movie of the Month winner! Of course films directed by women can be championed any month of the year, but to guarantee at least one is in the conversation at some point every twelve months, we limit the films to only those directed by women for every June. Amongst this month’s options we had three very different horror or horror-adjacent films championed, and in fact they...

    The Movie of the Month for May 2021 is…

    It’s time to announce May’s Movie of the Month! We get a lot of different types of films submitted for the Movie of the Month poll, but May’s winner is definitely the first of its kind to win. What its kind is though, I’m not quite sure, even though I’ve seen it before. This month, the film that received the most votes and which will have a Lambcast episode devoted to it is…...

    The Movie of the Month for March 2021 is…

    It’s time to announce March’s Movie of the Month! Once again, persistence has paid off as another serial contender continued to champion one film again and again (and again and again and again) until it finally won, so for next month we’ll be looking at… Once Upon a Time in the West!

    Congratulations go to James from Blogging by Cinema-Light for finally succeeding in championing Once Upon a...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2021 is…

    It’s Movie of the Month announcement time! For February we let Richard, the host of the Lambcast, make all the choices, because he has to endure the other winners for the rest of the year, and this time around he picked, shocking no-one, a bunch of films from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. You all voted, one of them won, and the film we’ll be celebrating in February 2021 is… Le Samouraï!

    No congratulations...

    2021 is almost upon us, and with this new beginning comes another year of movie of the month winners. It therefore seems apt to begin the year with a first-time winner. Of the eight films submitted, as always there is only one winner, so for January we’ll be looking at the 1948 Powell & Pressburger classic, The Red Shoes!

    Congratulations go to the film’s champion, Meg Hyland of Meg’s Movie...

    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’...
