    Vote for August 2018’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s Movie of the Month! We’re doing something different this month. Basically, I’ve gotten sick of watching the films everyone submits, so this month I, Jay, your shepherd, am submitting all the films to choose from, to guarantee we’ll be covering something I like. I’ve made it a varied bunch though, and spaced them out to cover one film from each decade of the past 100 years. The...

    Acting School 101 – July Introduction – Arnold Schwarzenegger

    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...

    The Movie of the Month for July 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It was another close battle between several worthy contenders, but this month’s winner is a film that’s been submitted several times, but which I’d never even heard of before it was first championed, so I’m eager to find out how good it actually it. For July our Movie of the Month is… Murder by Death!…

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    LAMBCAST #430: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION MOTM

    The latest Movie of the Month show is here! It’s been dragged through a river of shit and come out clean(ish) the other side. That’s right, this month is all about The Shawshank Redemption.

    Freshly-impounded co-host Richard Kirkham took the lead, and was joined by the film’s champion, Rob, along with Damien and Howard. And before go ahead and dismiss the show off hand as being a full-on love-in and...

    The Movie of the Month for June 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    We had a bumper crop of thirteen movies to pick from for the latest MOTM poll. That may have been too many, causing the votes to be split amongst several films, or the outcome might not have changed regardless of how many films were submitted. Either way, there’s only one winner, so for the month of June we’ll be talking about… The Shawshank...
