    Lambcast #589  In the Heights

    This week’s show is an all singing, all dancing revue, which finds Richard and his guests pirouetting on the side of a building, poppin’ on the stairwell, and doing donuts in the community pool. All of this filmed in brilliant lighting and clever camera movements. OK, that’s not really happening, but we do get to talk about all of those things on the podcast.

    Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the...

    Lambcast #588  MOTM Jennifer’s Body

    June is reserved for a Movie of the Month that comes from a female director. A Woman’s perspective is welcome any month but we don’t want it to get neglected by the capricious nature of voting so all entries for this Episode were directed by women and Karyn Kusama’s 2009 teen girl horror comedy topped the returns. It was a film expected to do better, widely criticized on it’s release, and having developed a much better...

    Lambcast #587  Decade Lookback 1988

    We are getting close to a summer full of Lambcasts that will focus on new films, but before we hit that groove we have a couple shows that do dig into the past a bit. This is the second of our decade lookback shows. First we skip around on the decades and then we pick a year in that decade. Our guests this week were tasked with creating a Top Five list of their choice for 1988. Everyone has some criteria that overlap but there are definitely...

    Lambcast #586  A Quiet Place Part II

    This week we all had to do something that has been difficult for a while, we went to a theater to see the featured film. “A Quiet Place Part II was not streaming on any service, you could not rent it on-line, if you wanted to see it, you had to go to the movies.

    John Krasinski is again behind the camera and he appears in the tense prologue to the film, and our Lambs this week had things to say about that....

    Lambcast #585 Action Star Showdown

    We have had Alien vs. Predator, Jason vs. Freddy and enough Superhero faceoffs in both the Marvel and DC worlds, to fill a dozen podcasts. It’s time for something a little different. We brought together five stars that are known for their Action Chops in a variety of movies. Buddy Cop films, Science Fiction extravaganzas, and Hong Kong Martial arts movies all make it to the show. Five Lambs enter and two remain, and you, the LAMB...

    Lambcast #584 Koyaanisqatsi MOTM

    It was with some trepidation that this podcast was set up. Kotaanisqatsi is an experimental film that uses visual images and an original Phillip Glass score to create what might be called a 90 minute visual poem. The absense of actores, script, dialogue, plot etc. suggested that this film might be difficult to process much less watch.

    Come and be surprised at how much this week’s Lambcast crew was able to chew...

    Lambcast #583  Off the Beaten Path May 2021

    Before the flood of new movies starts in the summer season, we have a few special programs to offer you. This is #4 in our series “Off the Beaten Path”

    The goal is to find some films that are not typically talked about. Sometimes the reason is that the movie is a cult film that only appeals to a specialized audience. Maybe it is a film from a bygone era that was never seen as a classic, but has something to recommend...

    Lambcast #582  Mortal Kombat (2021)

    Originally kast as the klueless kharacter who has to have all of the plot and scenario explained to him, Richard was dropped from the production and Howard Kasner replaced him in the lineup. While not quite as klueless, Howard does manage to get a batch of nerdy fans thru a discussion of the latest movie based on a videogame to come down the chute.

    Howard was joined in the lineup by Kameron Kanachki, Lisa Leaheey,...

    It’s time for April’s Lambpardy show! And, I think for the first time, this is the first show to not feature any Americans. In fact, we didn’t stray all that far from the British Isles for this show. Was it so it could be recorded on a weekday evening? Perhaps. Did it still lead to a very entertaining show? You betcha!

    This month’s show features two Lambpardy newbies and one second-timer, but literally...

    Lambcast #580 April MOTM The Thin Man Franchise

    Death and murder and violence are all over these movies, but you will hardly notice at all. There is no bloodshed, there is usually a musical interlude, and the most important element of the films is not the plot but the characters. Howard Casner championed “The Thin Man” series to victory in the latest MOTM poll and he takes over as host for our discussion of these classic films.

    Howard and Richard are...

    Lambcast #579  Oscar Preview 2021

    The movies in 2020 suffered a significant blow with the pandemic shutting down theaters around the world. Many films were held back but a number carried on with streaming access. Those conditions produced these results, films that are admired but are they worthy?

    MovieRob takes the reins as host this week. Since he has been our key man on the Oscars for several years now, it makes sense that he knows what we are...
