    LAMBCAST #475 LAIKA STUDIO LOOKBACK

    Stop! OK, move a little bit closer to hitting play on your podcast player. Stop! Move a little bit more. Stop! Move a teensy bit more again. Stop! Oh jeez, this could take a while.

    …Several days later… This week’s Lambcast is all about the Laika studio, and specifically the five films they’ve produced. With the release of Missing Link, also known as Jay’s most anticipated original film of...

    LAMBCAST #474 SPECIES FRANCHISE MOTM

    The Godfather! Back to the Future! Indiana Jones! Airport! … Species? That’s right, the latest addition to the ranks of our Movie of the Month franchise specials is the Species franchise, which also joins Airport in garnering my response of “Wait, that’s a franchise?”

    As the series’ champion, Vern is once again hosting another Movie of the Month show about a subject with a less than fresh...

    This week the Lambcast is flying high and sinking our teeth into the tales of Toothless and Hiccup as we take on the How To Train Your Dragon trilogy.

    LAMBCAST #466 JAMES BOND FRANCHISE PART 1

    The name’s cast, Lambcast, licence to discuss movie franchises.

    We’re taking inspiration from ourselves, namely how we split up the Harry Potter franchise last year, and chopping up the James Bond movies into six chunks, which we’ll hit at a leisurely pace over the next year. We’re kicking things off with, somewhat predictably, the first four films: Dr. No, From Russia With Love,...

    LAMBCAST #452: HARRY POTTER FRANCHISE LOOKBACK PART 2

    Part two of our Harry Potter franchise lookback is here, as we make our murky way through the darker half of the series, from Order of the Phoenix to the Deathly Hallows parts one and two!

    This time around, Jay is reunited with Richard, and joined by Harry Potter superfans Amanda and Nikhat to despair over Dobby, go la-la over Luna and vehemently vilify Voldemort. Oh, and the best way to enjoy this show...

    LAMBCAST #452: HARRY POTTER FRANCHISE LOOKBACK PART 1

    We’ve got a treat for you this week! A bumper double-bill of podcasts looking at the entire Harry Potter saga, a franchise so full of fantastical fancies that it just had to be split across two shows, and they’re not exactly short ones either!

    Jay was joined by Jeanette, Bubbawheat, newcomer James and returning Harry Potter trivia champion (no pressure) Rebecca to quarrel about Quidditch, lavish over...

    I scream, you scream, we all scream for the Scream franchise!

Four films of varying quality and one silly mask, all ready to be stabbed open and dissected by the crew. Jay and Richard were joined by a bumper crop...

    It’s Lamb Vs Predator this week as we dig into our highly anticipated Predator franchise lookback!

    Jay and Richard reunite with an entirely necessary and not-at-all excessive mid-air arm wrestle handshake, and are joined by the elite squadron of Heather, Simon and Will to dissect all four Predator films, and briefly touch upon the unfortunate AVP additions as well. Also on tap: Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week and a...

    LAMBCAST #400: THE 400TH SHOW SPECTACULAR

    So apparently the LAMB celebrated it’s 10th birthday a few weeks ago (October 31st to be exact) but what with all the hubbub around other areas of life it somehow got forgotten. Worry not dear flock, for though it was not technically intended for that celebration we have decided to mark the occasion with what is easily the most ambitious, and ultimately most time-consuming to edit Lambcast show in the history of the LAMB, it’s our...

    LAMBCAST #371 FAST & FURIOUS FRANCHISE

    Sixteen years ago, if you’d told me that there’d go on to be at least seven sequels to The Fast and The Furious, I’d have shaken my head in disbelief and questioned the sanity of the world we lived in and whether it’d really be worth carrying on if that was the future that awaited me. Actually, I’d probably have asked “What’s this fast and furious thing you’re talking about?”...
