    LAMBCAST #412: TWELVE MONKEYS MOTM

    I think at this point we can definitively say that if you want to win a Movie of the Month poll, your best bet is to submit a time travel movie (other than Primer of course).

    Chris Staron, on his first MOTM attempt, claimed victory and hosted the discussion on Terry Gilliam’s post-apocalyptic time travel film, and was joined by Jess Manzo, Sean Homrig, Robert Zerbe and Jay, making this another episode of Jay...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    The votes are in for the next Movie of the Month. It was a close call this month, with four movies all tied for first place for a long time, but a last minute run took two ahead of the pack, leaving the next winner to take the pole position by just one vote. So, for February 2018 the movie of the month is… Twelve Monkeys.…

    Acting School 101 – February Introduction – Joseph Gordon-Levitt

    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 #408: ISHTAR MOTM

    It’s January, the month where the studios seem to dump their non-awards-worthy fare, so instead of wasting your time listening to podcasts about bad movies, why not listen to us talk about… oh, darn, we’re discussing Ishtar. Sorry about that.

    Jay was joined by Ishtar‘s champion Richard, along with a panel ranging from bemused to annoyed, but made up of Rebecca, Sean and Chris.
