    Vote for August’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s Movie of the Month! Just like last year, I’ve selfishly commandeered this month for only my choices, which ni the past has led to a month dedicated to Snakes on a Plane, what could go wrong? This year I’ve submitted 9 films all celebrating a significant birthday (ending in an “0”). The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are the choices:

    The Movie of the Month for July 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! We’re back to a no-theme month for July, which led to a nicely diverse mix of films, but as ever there can be only one winner. Fortunately we didn’t have to resort to a talent show or swimsuit competition to determine the outcome, because the winning film for July is… Drop Dead Gorgeous!

    Congratulations to first-time MOTM champion Doug Jamieson from...

    Acting School 101 – July 2019 Introduction – James Cagney

    Welcome Back Students!

    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...

    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...

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...
