    Lambscores: Pacific Rim: Unsaning

    Two films for you this week: the big-budget popcorn sequel to Pacific Rim and the no-budget shot-entirely-on-an-iPhone Unsane from Steven Soderbergh. I don’t know about you, but I for one would like to see an experiment where the production processes of these two movies was switched. What would Soderbergh do with a big pile of money when it came to shooting a very small film? And think of the ingenuity required to...

    Lambscores: Annihilation for Kids

    The week we’re looking at today heralded quite a few releases, but evidently not many of you actually saw Gringo, The Leisure Seeker, Strangers: Prey at Night or The Hurricane Heist, as only a handful of reviews were submitted for them all in total. Fear not though, as also released that week was a much bigger movie, albeit one that didn’t exactly set our critical world aflame with heralds of...

    Lambscores: Deadly Sparrow

    Just two films for you this week, neither of which I thought looked particularly good, but that could be more for my general disinterest in Jennifer Lawrence than anything else. Anyway, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Red Sparrow and Death Wish:

    Lambscores: Let’s Play Annihilation

    We’ve got two movies for you this week. First up is Annihilation, Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina, which went straight to Netflix everywhere outside of the US (fine by me, it means I’ve seen it), and then there’s Game Night, which sounds far better than expected. Check them out, and check out the reviews from the LAMB community:

    Lambscores: Prehistoric Panther

    I don’t mean to disrespect the previous few weeks of Lambscores, but I think it’s fair to say that today is where 2018’s films really begin, at least in terms of spectacle. Paddington 2 may still hold the top spot for the year so far (a fact I am in no way annoyed by), but in terms of a cultural milestone and slice of event cinema you can’t really compare anything so far to Black Panther. As such I...

    Lambscores: A bunch of not great movies

    Apologies for the lack of Lambscores post these past few weeks, but things are back to normal now with a back log of reviews for the movies we should have covered in the past month. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about them:


    Peter Rabbit

    The MN Movie Man (4)

    Lambscores: Trains and Killers and Bears, Oh My!

    We’ve got three films for you this week, but really we only need to worry about one. Yes, The Commuter and Proud Mary were released and reviewed, but guys, Paddington 2 is where everyone should be going. It takes an early lead on 2018’s leaderboard, and it’s my prediction that it;ll be staying there for at least a little while, and if it’s not on there at the end of the year then this will...

    Lambscores: Insidious: The Last Key

    As usual we’re kicking off the year’s LAMBscores coverage with a movie that’s, well, not very good. January is oft-regarded as something of a post-awards-season dumping ground, and 2018 doesn’t seem to be deviating from that tradition. As such, here’s the LAMB community’s thoughts on Insidious: The Last Key:

    Lambscores: The Dregs of December

    We’re closing off both December and 2017 as a whole this week, meaning this is a bumper Lambscores addition as not only does it include a bunch of the awards season movies but also all the smaller films from earlier in the year that took a little longer to accrue enough reviews. As such I won’t go on for much longer other than to say here’s what the LAMB community thought about a whole herd of movies:

    Lambscores: The Last Bovine

    It’s not often that I give a film its lowest rating of all those submitted, but that’s the case this week with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I didn’t hate it, but I also found precious little of it to be actually entertaining, and the rest – especially the first 90 minutes – was outright dull. Clearly I’m in the minority though, as one of the most-reviewed and definitely the most-seen film of the year...
