    The Movie of the Month for August 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It was a tough battle for supremacy this month, with pretty much every champion campaigning heavily for their chosen film to win the poll. Throughout almost the entirety of the voting period there was one film just in the lead, whose campaigner was going above and beyond on the leg work, and had the votes been closed 2 days earlier than they ultimately were then Vern would...

    Acting School 101 – August Introduction – Sean Connery

    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 given...

    LAMBCAST #382 SAVING PRIVATE RYAN MOTM

    With Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk just around the corner, this month’s Movie of the Month could well be considered a companion piece to it, as this week we’re delving into Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan.

    As the movie’s champion Rob led the discussion, and was joined by super fan and regular host Jay, relative newcomers to the film Jess and Damien, and absolute first-timer...

    The Movie of the Month for July 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    The LAMB site wasn’t entirely active for much of this month’s voting period, so we had less votes than usual and to compensate, all the films that didn’t win will get another chance at the title next month, if their champions wish. Despite the technical issues there is still a very clear winner for this month, with the movie’s champion getting in a...

    LAMBCAST #379 THE SPY WHO LOVED ME MOTM

    It’s Movie of the Month time again on the Lambcast, and for the second time we’re talking about a James Bond movie, in this case The Spy Who Loved Me, the 10th Bond film overall and the third to star the sadly departed Sir Roger Moore.

    Now when it comes to talking about Bond, surely nobody does it better that Aaron Neuwirth, the movie’s champion. He was joined by Richard Kirkham, Bubbawheat and Jay...
