    The Movie of the Month for August 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! Just like last year, the month of August is dedicated to picks submitted by the LAMB shepherd, Jay (that’s me!) and once again he (I) picked a diverse selection of films all from different decades, and once again you’ve all voted and picked a winner. This time around though it’s not one of the more recent options, no, for August we’re delving into the 1930s and...

    Like The Director’s Chair series being run by Tony, I think that this series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.

    I plan to try and focus on an actor or actress every month who has a birthday in that given...

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Doug, as well as Sean and newcomer Jon to discuss why Drop Dead Gorgeous was a critical and commercial failure, why it absolutely should not have been, plus lots of comparisons to the far...

    Vote for August’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for August’s Movie of the Month!

This year I’ve submitted 9 films all celebrating a significant birthday (ending in an “0”). The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are the choices:

    The Movie of the Month for July 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! We’re back to a no-theme month for July, which led to a nicely diverse mix of films, but as ever there can be only one winner. Fortunately we didn’t have to resort to a talent show or swimsuit competition to determine the outcome, because the winning film for July is… Drop Dead Gorgeous!

    Congratulations to first-time MOTM champion Doug Jamieson from...
