    Lambscores: The Curse of La Llorona

    Just the one film this week, with The Curse of La Llorona offering counter-programming against next week’s Avengers: Endgame. And counter-programming in this sense doesn’t just mean horror instead of family-oriented, but also terrible as opposed to amazing (spoilers for next week). Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Curse of La Llorona:

    LAMBCAST #478 HEREDITARY MOTM

    No, your eyes do not deceive you, we’re covering a horror movie in May, and a recent one at that. Up is down, left is right, heads will roll. Hereditary received much critical acclaim in 2018, but what do we on the Lambcast think of it?

    Jay and Richard were joined by Damien, Getter and the film’s champion, Sean, to discuss pigeons, poles and Paimon, amongst many other things.

    LAMBracket: Best Marvel Movie Results!

    Hey, so I realised recently that whilst the Best Marvel Movie bracket had concluded over on Facebook, we’d never actually posted the results over here. Over the month of April, in the lead-up to Avengers: Endgame, we held a daily bracket to determine the best Marvel movie, featuring all of the MCU films, plus some of the highest rated films based on Marvel properties but released from other studios. There were several bouts...

    Acting School 101 – May 2019 Introduction – Clint Eastwood

    Welcome Back Students!

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    Like The Director’s Chair series being run by Tony, I think that this reignited 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...

    The Movie of the Month for May 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! It seems many of the LAMB flock think that the Movie of the Month poll is a place to showcase films that have a terrible reputation, and it’s an opportunity to make Jay and Richard watch something awful, hence why the likes of D.C. Cab, Battlefield Earth and Jury Duty were all submitted in this month’s poll. Fortunately none of them won, but the winner...
