    * You have four weeks to watch the flick (if you haven’t already) and to write up something, then send me the link (dylan at manilovefilms.com) to either...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #80: The Long Kiss Goodnight

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #80: The Long Kiss Goodnight

    Renny Harlin’s 1996 film The Long Kiss Goodnight was, for better or worse, mostly left behind by audiences.

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #76: The Third Man

    Veteran LAMBcaster James was pushing hard for The Third Man to be the next MOTM for a few months now, and he finally got his way. The 1949 drama starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles is regularly included on lists of the best noir films and was voted in 1999 as the best British film of the 20th century by the BFI.
