    The Movie of the Month for November 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For November’s MOTM poll there were five films submitted, but it was really only a two horse race between the competitors undertaking the most campaigning. Those two were Simon and Rob with The Hunt For Red October and Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It was an incredibly close run but, the winner, by just three votes is… The Hunt For Red...

    LAMBCAST #448: THE HAUNTING MOTM

    It’s time for the some horror over on the Lambcast!

    Traditionally the run up to Halloween is dedicated to horror films and franchise here at the LAMB, and that’s no different this year with our horror-themed Movie of the Month. This time around the original 1963 version of The Haunting is our focus, with its champion Howard Casner taking his first seat in the MOTM host chair. He’s joined by Sean, Tony,...

    Lambscores: Simple Predator Rick

    It’s never a good sign when a low-ranked film has a lot of reviews, as it generally means a lot of people were looking forward to something, made plans to see it and cared enough to put fingers to keyboard and write a review, but that it just wasn’t good. Alas that’s the case this week with one of my most anticipated films of the year, Shane Black’s The Predator, which under-performed with critics to a...

    Lambscores: The Peppermint Nun

    Apparently one of this week’s films, The Nun, is part of the Conjuring Cinematic Universe, a franchise that so far consists of five feature films, with three more announced for the near future, and as yet I haven’t seen any, any I’ve no real plans to either. Why not? Well it’s mainly that I’m not really a horror guy, but also to me they all sounded kind of dull, and given the reviews for The Nun...

    The Movie of the Month for October 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It’s October, which means this month’s MOTM is a horror pick, and damn if there weren’t some horrific choices in the poll this month. This was a tighly-run and ever-changing race, with some last-ditch surges, Twitter involvements from relevant film-makers and an overhanging threat that we’d end up talking about Tusk. Fortunately that...
