    Lambscores: Serenity, The Kid Who Would Be King

    Two films for you this week, the solidly entertaining return of Joe Cornish (Attack The Block, watch it now) with his second feature, The Kid Who Would Be King, and whatever the heck Serenity is (seriously, I’ve no idea other than it’s bonkers, I’m trying to stay in the dark until it hits UK streaming in two weeks). Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about...

    Lambscores: Glass

    Just the one film for you this week, M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. It didn’t get the best critical reception, but given its themes of disappointment and not giving audiences what they want, this could well have been Shyamalan’s intention. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it:

    Lambscores: Escape Room

    January rarely starts out strong movie-wise, and whilst that’s the case this week it’s still not the worst start to a year. I’ve not yet seen Escape Room, but I’m really looking forward to catching it on streaming later in the year as it feels like a Saw sequel with more gimmicks, fewer prolonged plot contrivances and far fewer people stabbing themselves in the eye to get a key from the socket....

    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the last Lambscores for films released in 2018, so it seemed appropriate to collate all the scores for the films as yet unpublished for the whole year.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:

    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:
