January rarely starts out strong movie-wise, and whilst that’s the case this week it’s still not the worst start to a year. I’ve not yet seen Escape Room, but I’m really looking forward to catching it on streaming later in the year as it feels like a Saw sequel with more gimmicks, fewer prolonged plot contrivances and far fewer people stabbing themselves in the eye to get a key from the socket....
Every day until the Oscars ceremony we’ll be highlighting a different category or movie here on the LAMB! Here’s a link to all the posts written so far:
Today, Jeanette Ward from The Mundane Adventures of a Fangirl is here to look at the nominees for Best Visual Effects.

The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!
To celebrate the Lambcast co-host’s birthday month, we let Richard select all the contenders for February’s Movie of the Month poll, and he’ll be hosting the upcoming Lambcast on it, so the surprise here isn’t who wins, but which film they picked that everyone else voted for. It was a very close-run race, with just one vote separating the top two...

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 calendar...

LAMB Average: 4.50 (8 sites)
The Michigan Movie Guy (5)
