    Lambscores: A Kind Of Magic

    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...

    Lambscores: Night School for Smallfeet

    Just two films this week, we’re in a smaller movie lull between Oscar-bait with a light comedy and a family animation, in which I’m reliably informed Zendaya plays Meechee. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Night School and Smallfoot:

    Lambscores: The Nation With An Assassination In Itself

    Three films this week: one good, one bad, one entertaining but mediocre, nothing to really set the world alight. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Assassination Nation, The House With A Clock In Its Walls and Life Itself:


    Assassination Nation

    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...

    Another mediocre week with two middling films; but don’t worry, awards season is just around the corner! Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Operation Finale and Kin:

    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:
