    Lambscores: Family Christmas on the Train to Ebbing, MI

    This week was almost a write-off. Last week, I announced that the next Lambscores would look at Murder on the Orient Express, Daddy’s Home 2 and A Bad Mom’s Christmas, the latter of which I’d missed covering a couple of weeks earlier. I compiled the scores and links, but it was a thoroughly underwhelming and unimpressive list of movies. Then, however, I checked to see what next week’s films...

    Lambscores: He Will, He Will, Ragnarok You

    Just one film for you this week but that’s OK because it’s a big one, and a great one at that. Clearly everyone isn’t sick of the Marvel onslaught yet (myself included) as everyone seems to have mostly positive remarks on Thor: Ragnarok:

    Lambscores: Jigsaw, Suburbicon

    We’ve got a battle for mediocrity this month as two of the most middling reviewed films of the year went up against each other. Here’s what the LAMB Community had to say about Suburbicon and Jigsaw:

    Lambscores: Geostorm, Only The Brave, The Snowman, The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    A lack of major releases means the few smaller films just about scraped through on their review counts, though one of them is one of the worst reviewed films of the year. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Geostorm, Only The Brave, The Snowman, The Killing of a Sacred Deer:

    Lambscores: Blade Runner 2049, The Mountain Between Us, Victoria and Abdul

    For some reason in last week’s round-up I proclaimed that next week, which of course is now this week, we’d be looking at the reviews of, amongst others, the My Little Pony Movie. Sure it was released along with the other three of this week’s new movies, but why I thought we’d get any reviews for it, let alone enough to do a Lambscores post, I’ve no idea. Regardless we’ll carry on Pony-less and dig into...

    Lambscores: The Return of Lambscores!

    Lamscores are back! I’ve been away for a month, but now I’ve returned and brought a bumper crop of Lambscores with me, so strap yourself in for the general LAMB consensus on a romcom, two horror remakes, a title that dislikes upper case letters, a spy sequel, another Facebook movie, a block-based martial arts animation, two films with “American” in the title, and something about tennis:

    Lambscores: Landline, Okja, Detroit, Death Note

    We’ve reached the point in the year when pretty much no new movies got released, or at least none that warranted enough reviews to be written, so I’ve delved back through the year to find some of the smaller releases that have clocked up more numbers since their initial release. As such, today we’ll be seeing what the LAMB community has to say about Detroit, Okja, Death Note and Landline. Oh, by the way, this will be the...

    Lambscores: Wind River, Logan Lucky, The Hitman’s Bodyguard

    It’s rare that one week of cinema brings with it three films I’d actually like to see – or at least, I wanted to see before the initial reviews came out. At the time of writing I’ve only seen one of this week’s crop (Logan Lucky, I recommend it) but Wind River sounds good and I thought The Hitman’s Bodyguard looked pretty entertaining before I heard opinions to the contrary....

    Lambscores: A Good Time with Annabelle and Ingrid

    Well what do we have here? Could it be? A week with three well-reviewed films? Surely not! And one of them has even made it into the top 10? Who’d’ve thought? Well indeed it is so, as this week sees the collated reviews for Good Time, Ingrid Goes West and Annabelle: Creation for your perusing pleasure. Of course, it helps that not many reviews were submitted for The Glass Castle, and apparently no-one even saw The Nut Job 2: Nutty...

    Lambscores: Kidnap The Big Dark Sick Tower

    Summer is, alas, drawing to a close, and sadly that means we’re starting to close out the films deemed unworthy of the tentpole release dates, and have been relegated to the dreaded August time slots. It’s not all doom and gloom though, with the lack of quality blockbusters some smaller gems poke through, which is exactly what happened with this week’s crop. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Dark...
