    Lambscores: Simple Predator Rick

    It’s never a good sign when a low-ranked film has a lot of reviews, as it generally means a lot of people were looking forward to something, made plans to see it and cared enough to put fingers to keyboard and write a review, but that it just wasn’t good. Alas that’s the case this week with one of my most anticipated films of the year, Shane Black’s The Predator, which under-performed with critics to a...

    Lambscores: The Peppermint Nun

    Apparently one of this week’s films, The Nun, is part of the Conjuring Cinematic Universe, a franchise that so far consists of five feature films, with three more announced for the near future, and as yet I haven’t seen any, any I’ve no real plans to either. Why not? Well it’s mainly that I’m not really a horror guy, but also to me they all sounded kind of dull, and given the reviews for The Nun...

    Lambscores: The Happytime Murders

    One film this week. Just one, and coincidentally that’s also the score it got. It seems the premise of Who Framed Roger Rabbit but with puppets and silly string jizz just wasn’t enough to make an actually decent film. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Happytime Murders:

    Lambscores: Crazy 22

    Two films! One is amongst the top 10 of the year, the other is probably amongst the bottom 10, but we don’t really keep track of that. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Crazy Rich Asians and Mile 22:

    Lambscores: BlacKkKlansman, The Meg

    It probably says something about me that of today’s two movies I haven’t seen the critically acclaimed, historically significant and dramatically insightful BlacKkKlansman, but I have seen the movie where Jason Statham fights an old giant dinosaur shark. Hell, we even did a podcast on it. Judging by the reviews though I clearly made the wrong choice (regardless of how much fun I had watching The Meg). Anyway,...

    Lambscores: The Pooh Who Dumped Me

    Yes I’m proud of that title. Judge all you like. Given the reviews below, it may well be better than the two films we’re looking at this week. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Christopher Robin and The Spy Who Dumped Me:

    Lambscores: Teen: Titans – Fallout!

    Lambscores have been pretty mediocre-to-poor the past few weeks, but those days are behind us as today we’re looking at the latest and potentially best Mission: Impossible movie! Christopher McQuarrie has broken the chain of each new instalment having a unique director, but it’s difficult to complain when the results are this gripping. Also covered this week is Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, an animated DC film that’s...

    Lambscores: Equalizer 2: Here We Home Depot Again!

    Apparently it’s sequel week here at Lambscores, as today’s selection are the sequels to The Equalizer, a thoroughly underwhelming Denzel Washington action flick that should not have spawned Washington’s first sequel, and Mamma Mia, a film that features far more ABBA music than anything I ever want to encounter. As such I haven’t seen either of this week’s films, and I probably never will....

    Lambscores: Transylvanian Skyscraper

    There’s another race for mediocrity this week, with two new releases not critically setting the world aflame. First up is part three in a franchise I’m shocked completed a part one, Hotel Transylvania (though to be fair, I’ve not seen a single second of any of them), followed by a Die Hard knock-off that failed to reach the lofty heights its name might  suggest. Here’s what the LAMB community had to...

    Lambscores: Ant-Man and the Wasp, The First Purge

    There’s a horror prequel this week! Yay! Oh wait, that’s rarely a good thing. It’s OK though, as in addition to The First Purge we have the smallest big release of the year, Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. International school and sports calendars have prevented a UK release until just a few hours ago (and indeed some countries have still yet to receive it), but it received a mostly global release a...

    Lambscores: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    No reviews for Uncle Drew this week so we’ve just got the sequel to Sicario for you today. It lost Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins and Emily Blunt, and subsequently dropped an entire Lambscore too. Here’s what the LAMB community thought about Sicario: Day of the Soldado:
