    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…

It was a very close-run race, with just one vote separating the top two...

    Acting School 101 – February 2019 Introduction – Laura Dern

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    Like The Director’s Chair series being run by Tony, I think that this reignited series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.

    I plan to try and focus on an actor or actress every month who has a birthday in that given calendar...

    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...
