    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...

    Lambscores: Atomic Blonde

    Given that David Leitch has so far directed or co-directed two established-star-goes-on-highly-stylised-killing-spree movies, I think we can imagine a fairly accurate template to predict what Deadpool 2 is going to be like, and that’s fine by me. This week’s Lambscores are just for one of Leitch’s movies, Atomic Blonde, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it:

    Lambscores: Take a Trip to the Beach, or the City

    Three movies for you this week. Dunkirk, as you might have guessed, is quite rightfully receiving a great deal of praise, and I couldn’t be happier about that. It’s now #2 on our leaderboard for the year, so hurrah! There’s also good news for the apparently-much-better-than-Rough-Night Girls Trip, so yay! The third movie is Valerian, and it’s perhaps one of the most divisive films of...

    Lambscores: Monkey’s Paw

    Before anyone says anything about the post title, I know that monkeys and apes are different things, but when there’s a simian-centric movie out the same week as a be-careful-what-you-wish-for horror, well there’s only one direction I’m going in pun-wise. So without further ado, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about War For The Planet Of The Apes and Wish Upon:

    Lambscores: Haunted Homecoming

    Two very different movies for you this week. One is a big superhero sequel/reboot that could well be the best entry within its franchise, and the other predominantly features Casey Affleck wearing a sheet, and includes an interminably slow scene in which Rooney Mara eats a pie. I know which one I’d rather watch. Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about Spider-Man: Homecoming and A Ghost Story:

    Lambscores: Baby Driver, The Beguiled, Despicable Me 3, The House

    You know when you look forward to a film and it turns out to be really good? Well my most anticipated film of the year is amongst this week’s crop of Lambscores, and I’m overjoyed that it’s at the top of the pile, and that the rest of the LAMB community also deemed it good enough to make the Lambscores Top 10, hurrah! As well as Baby Driver, this week we also have reviews of The Beguiled, Despicable Me...

    Lambscores: Knighty Knight

    One movie this week, and it ain’t a good one, so let’s get it over with, shall we? It’s the latest Transformers movie, and frankly that’s all I need to know. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Transformers: The Last Knight:

    Lambscores: 47 Meters Down, All Eyez On Me, Cars 3, Rough Night, The Book of Henry

    When Cars 3 was announced, if you’d told me that upon it’s released its Lambscore would be the highest of five movies that same week, I doubt I’d have believed you. 3.14/5 isn’t exactly an incredible score, but it’s a great deal better than many might expect based on the disappointing Cars 2. Anyway, here’s the scores for Cars 3, All Eyez On Me, 47 Meters Down,...

    Lambscores: Mummy, Cousin Rachel and It

    There’s an unintentional connection between the three movies up for today’s Lambscores – they all have very dark, almost-but-not-quite black-and-white posters. Could this be because they all have an element of horror to them? Probably. That’s more likely than all the poster-printing companies having run out of magenta ink, so let’s go with it. Anyway, here are the thoughts of the LAMB community on It Comes At...
