    Lambscores: The Rest of 2018

    Here it is, the last Lambscores for films released in 2018, so it seemed appropriate to collate all the scores for the films as yet unpublished for the whole year. Needless to say, it’s quite a list! Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about a whole bunch of movies from last year:

    It’s the penultimate Lambscores of 2018, and as such we’re elbow-deep in both awards- and family blockbuster season, so there’s plenty of both for your perusal today. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Aquaman, Bumblebee, Second Act, Welcome to Marwen, Mary Poppins Returns, Mary Queen of Scots and The Favourite:

    Lambscores: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Mortal Engines, The Mule

    Three films this week. There’s The Mule and Mortal Engines, fine, but also Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, aka the third-highest rated film of 2018 according to the LAMB community! To say I couldn’t be happier that this film is getting ranked so highly would be a lie, as somehow it’s still being beaten by the thoroughly average A Star is Born, but I’ll just be happy that so many...

    Lambscores: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    The problem with films being released directly to Netflix is they’re easy to forget when it comes to compiling these amalgamated posts, hence why we’re a little late getting to the round-up for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. It wasn’t completely forgotten though, so here’s what the LAMB community had to say about the latest offering from the brothers Coen:

    Just two films this week, a bit of a relief after the mammoth ordeal that was the recent Hodge-Podge post. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Bohemian Rhapsody and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms:

    Lambscores: 2018 Hodge-Podge

    So this week’s film was supposed to be Hunter Killer, but given the only review submitted for that came from the Lambcast co-host Richard (find it here), I opted instead to dig through the forums for some of the smaller releases that took a little while longer to accrue the minimum of five submitted scores to be published. I figured this would be a quick job – after all, how many could there be? Evidently quite a few, hence why...

    Lambscores: This is Halloween

    This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

    Ahem, guess what film we’re covering on today’s Lambcast? That’s right, it’s the Halloween sequel released 40 years after the original, confusingly with the same name, and which wiped out all the other Halloween sequels from continuity, and speaking as someone who has only seen the now just two canon Halloween...

    Lambscores: First Times at the Goosebumps Hotel

    Three films for you this week: First Man, Bad Times at the El Royale and Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. My personal favourite is the apparently under-rated Bad Times, which I loved (but not enough to write a review, evidently), but it seems the LAMB community, as usual, doesn’t agree with me. Here are everyone’s thoughts:

    Lambscores: A Star is Born like a Turd in the Wind

    We’ve got two films for you this week, and one of them has made it onto the top 10 of the year so far. More than that, it’s in the top spot, and I, for one, do not agree with that ranking. The film in question is A Star is Born, a film that in my opinion is utterly fine and nothing more. The Lambcast that featured a review on it (which I was unable to be on) featured a very discussion containing divided opinions, with two...
