    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...

    Lambscores: Wonder Woman

    One big blockbuster for you this week, the film that seems to have broken the so-called “DC Curse” and hopefully pave the way for many more female-driven, female-directed quality tentpoles. This week the LAMB community is looking at Wonder Woman:

    Lambscores: Alien Pirate Lifeguards

    Apologies for the delay in Lambscores posts recently, as you may have noticed the LAMB site was down for a short period, but is now back up and running, so there’s two weeks of scores here today! That’d be so much more exciting, if only they were for better movies. Alas, here’s what the LAMB community thought of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales/Salazar’s Revenge, Alien: Covenant and...

    Lambscores: Snatch 2: Lock Stock and a Stone-bed Sword

    I’m not gonna lie, this week is not a good one for new releases. King Arthur looked like it might be decent, and given Snatched was Amy Schumer’s follow-up to Trainwreck there were high hopes there too, but alas it seems expectations were mostly disappointed given the generally negative scores from the LAMB community:

    Lambscores: Gotta Guard That Galaxy Again

    2017 once again sees a steady stream of superhero movies for us all to enjoy (there’s another promising-looking one released today that you may have heard of), but perhaps the most eagerly anticipated was Marvel’s first entry of the year, the sequel to 2014’s surprisingly awesome Guardians of the Galaxy. Personally I really enjoyed this film and think Kurt Russell is a terrific addition to the franchise, plus it...

    Lambscores: Early 2017 Round-Up

    This week I was all set to present to you the LAMB community’s thoughts on The Circle and How To Be A Latin Lover. The only problem is, those films didn’t seem to appeal to pretty much anyone (not I can blame you) so we’ve had scarcely any reviews in for either! That’s fine though, because for the past few months I’ve been shamefully neglecting some of the smaller releases, which round about now...

    Lambscores: The Furious City of Fire

    Apologies if you’ve been trying to access the LAMB site in the past week, we’ve been having some technical issues and the site has been down, but all is now back to normal. A massive thanks to site founder Dylan Fields for handling it all. And given that we missed last week’s Lambscores, it means this week has a bumper double-issue, looking at one of the year’s highest grossing blockbusters, and a couple of...

    Lambscores: Going in Style

    Not much to report this week, with only one release receiving enough review for a Lambscores, and even then only just. Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about Going in Style:

    Lambscores: Baby in the Shell

    A human mind in a robot body or an adult mind in a baby’s body, which is better? You decide! I haven’t seen either of these films and, judging by the general feedback I probably never will (unless either wins a future Movie of the Month poll), so apologies if those over-simplified descriptions aren’t terribly accurate. You know who has seen these films and can tell you more about them? The LAMB members who wrote the...

    Lambscores: The Life of a Power Ranger

    Where the heck did Life come from? I swear there are movies that just kind of creep up on you, until the day they get released and suddenly they’re on every bus-side and billboard, and for me that was Life, and apparently it’s actually pretty good. On the other hand, Saban’s Power Rangers was over-marketed to the point of parody, and looked awful, but some people seemed to like it. Here’s what the...
