    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...

    Lambscores: December’s Leftovers

    There’s no big new releases this week (only Just Getting Started, which frankly didn’t get started) so we’re using this opportunity to cover some of the smaller films that took a little longer to acquire more than 5 reviews, and that’s a good thing too, because two of this week’s movies have made their way onto the Top 10 list:


    Call Me By Your Name

    Lambscores: The Shape of Disaster

    We’ve had a few weeks of so-called “lesser” movies, but this week we’ve got something special – not just one but two new movies that have both made their way onto the Top 10 Films of the Year! Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Shape of Water and The Disaster Artist:

    Apologies for being a couple of days late this week, as with a lot of people this time of year, it gets pretty busy. Anyway, here’s what the LAMB Community had to say about Coco and Darkest Hour:

    Lambscores: Family Christmas on the Train to Ebbing, MI

    This week was almost a write-off. Last week, I announced that the next Lambscores would look at Murder on the Orient Express, Daddy’s Home 2 and A Bad Mom’s Christmas, the latter of which I’d missed covering a couple of weeks earlier. I compiled the scores and links, but it was a thoroughly underwhelming and unimpressive list of movies. Then, however, I checked to see what next week’s films...

    Lambscores: He Will, He Will, Ragnarok You

    Just one film for you this week but that’s OK because it’s a big one, and a great one at that. Clearly everyone isn’t sick of the Marvel onslaught yet (myself included) as everyone seems to have mostly positive remarks on Thor: Ragnarok:


    Thor: Ragnarok

    Lambscores: Jigsaw, Suburbicon

    We’ve got a battle for mediocrity this month as two of the most middling reviewed films of the year went up against each other. Here’s what the LAMB Community had to say about Suburbicon and Jigsaw:
