    LAMBCAST #549 SING STREET MOTM

    Sometimes it takes perseverance, hard work and trying again and again to achieve success. That was the case for this month’s Movie of the Month winner, Audrey, who put Sing Street forward time and again until it eventually defeated the other competitors. That’s not so much a rule for the film though, in which sometimes you can just pick up a guitar and almost immediately be a great musician. Regardless, this week’...

    Vote for October’s Movie of the Month, Horror Special, Round 2!

    Round 2 of October’s MOTM poll tournament is here! There were some tightly fought bouts in the first round, but only four films can move on, so let’s take a look at the results from round 1:

    There we go, the four films moving on are Trick R Treat (2007), Mandy (2018), Candyman (1992) and Host (2020). It’s possible there’s some recency bias on display as the newest film in each match-up has proceeded onto...

    Vote for October’s Movie of the Month, Horror Special!

    It’s time to vote for October’s movie of the month! Hold up though, this month is a bit different. Not only is October’s Movie of the Month horror-themed, but it appears some ghostly gremlins have gotten into the polling plug-in, and are limiting the poll to at most three movies. This is a problem, as we’ve got ten! So for this month, and until this issue is resolved, we’ll be determining the MOTM with a...

    Quarantine Lambscores Part 2: April 2020

    Hey folks, remember April? Remember when everything closed and all us nonessential folk went home and realised there weren’t any new releases? We got a little glum, but thought “This’ll only be for a few weeks or so, we’ll be back in the cinemas by summer!” Ah, what sweet, naive children we were, and clearly the movie industry was just as hopeful and foolish, as April was pretty barren new-release-wise. That was...

    Quarantine Lambscores Part 1: March 2020 and Earlier

    Hi folks, hope everyone is keeping as well as possible in the mosquito-filled jockstrap that is 2020. As some of you may have noticed, this year’s cinema release schedule took something of a nosedive a few months ago, and the weekly Lambscores feature petered out along with it, but it’s back! And different! Kind of! For now at least! Exclamations!

    Anyway, a bunch of films got released digitally during that period of the...

    Acting School 101 – September 2020 Introduction – Naomi Watts

    Welcome Back Students!

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    I think that this 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 month.

    Obviously, there are thousands upon...
