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 given...
This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Sylvester Stallone.
We received a total of 176 reviews for 42 films that Sylvester Stallone had parts in. Plus 2 general posts about his life and work.
That’s quite an impressive amount.
Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Sylvester Stallone’s career:

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...
There’s a new feature coming to the LAMB! In a bid to increase the site’s interactive nature, we’re going to try and determine the BEST of things by means of a bracket, voted on by you, the glorious LAMB members and visitors, and we’re kicking things off with a festive fight to figure out the greatest Christmas movie! The one-on-one bracket battle will begin in December, with each day seeing a new clash until one...
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:
Tension! Heated debates! Outright arguments! Yes, they’re all in the film, but they’re also all in this week’s podcast!
Jay and Richard were joined by Simon, Will and Chris to discuss November’s Movie of the Month, The Hunt For Red October, which was a frequently-viewed classic for most, but a first-time watch for our usual host. Simon commandeered the helm for his first MOTM victory and leading...
It’s time to vote for December’s Movie of the Month, Holiday Special! The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first, the contenders!
Meet Me In St. Louis (1944) [Amanda, Hollywood Consumer]
It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) [Rob, MovieRob]
Ernest Saves Christmas (1988) [Mark, Movies Films and Flix]
As you should already know by now, Sylvester Stallone is our actor of the month in the newly-revived Acting School 101 feature, being hosted by me, MovieRob. Alongside the monthly blogathon held here on the LAMB site, I will also be hosting a monthly podcast episode devoted to the actor and their roles, and wouldn’t you know it but that’s this very show here!
I was joined by Tony from Coog’s Reviews to...
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...

Hello everyone and welcome to another introduction post for Director’s Chair. Seeing as this month sees the release of Creed 2, me and Rob, who runs Acting School 101, have decided to focus on the same person this month, that person being Sylvester Stallone. So while Rob is focusing on his efforts as an actor,...
Hello everyone, it’s time to showcase the features you sent me for the films of David Cronenberg. Thanks to everyone who sent me pieces on Cronenberg’s films. Let’s not waste time and let’s dive into what you sent me:
Crimes of the Future/The Brood:I Think, Therefore I Review
Shivers:I Think, Therefore I Review
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:
