    Lambscores: The Happytime Murders

    One film this week. Just one, and coincidentally that’s also the score it got. It seems the premise of Who Framed Roger Rabbit but with puppets and silly string jizz just wasn’t enough to make an actually decent film. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Happytime Murders:

    Acting School 101 – October 2018 Introduction – Jeff Goldblum

    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...

    Acting School 101 – September 2018 – Mickey Rooney

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Mickey Rooney.

    We received a total of 72 reviews for 55 films that Mickey Rooney had parts in. Plus 5 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 Mickey Rooney’s career:

    Lambscores: Crazy 22

    Two films! One is amongst the top 10 of the year, the other is probably amongst the bottom 10, but we don’t really keep track of that. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Crazy Rich Asians and Mile 22:

    LAMBCAST #443 SHOWGIRLS MOTM

    You know what happens when Vern submits a film for Movie of the Month? We end up talking about Showgirls.

    After Howard the Duck, Jay basically vowed to never let Vern host a MOTM show again, yet somehow this happened, so in protest Jay isn’t here this week and Richard reluctantly took the hosting reigns to try and wrangle Vern, Chris and Doug towards a sensible discussion of a movie that begs the...

    Lambscores: BlacKkKlansman, The Meg

    It probably says something about me that of today’s two movies I haven’t seen the critically acclaimed, historically significant and dramatically insightful BlacKkKlansman, but I have seen the movie where Jason Statham fights an old giant dinosaur shark. Hell, we even did a podcast on it. Judging by the reviews though I clearly made the wrong choice (regardless of how much fun I had watching The Meg). Anyway,...

    Yes I’m proud of that title. Judge all you like. Given the reviews below, it may well be better than the two films we’re looking at this week. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Christopher Robin and The Spy Who Dumped Me:
