    LAMBcast #104: 2012 Academy Award Predictions

    Once again, we here at the LAMBcast pull out our crystal balls and attempt to predict the winners for the upcoming Oscars. Or at least some of them. Rather than cycle through all 24 categories, we cherry-picked 10 of the big ones to prognosticate, while sprinkling in our commentary on snubs (like, say…Drive?) and thoughts on the production and nomination process along the way. On hand was your host Dylan, as well as LAMBcast regulars...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #103: The Shining

    I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a movie fan, much less a movie blogger, not at least somewhat familiar with The Shining, but I give the IMDb summary every other time, so why not now?

    “A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future. “

    Let’s see...

    LAMBcast #102: LAMBpardy (#4)

    The LAMBcast’s version of America’s Favorite Game Show (or is that Wheel of Fortune? The Price is Right?) is back!

    If you don’t know how this works by now, I’m not sure what I can do to help you there. To recap: I return as the reigning champion, Kai returns as our own Wink Martindale (seriously, he wouldn’t stop winking at me, as we were recording together from my garage), and Joel and Danny came in to...

    LAMBcast #101: Top 10s for 2011

    Fans of Rants and Raves of the Week, I assure you they are not going anywhere. However, with our special interview show coming at #100 and with this, our Top 10s show at #101, let’s just say that they’ve taken a short hiatus. That was planned from the start, as this was expected to be a longish show, and it was. Dylan, Nick, Fredo, Dan Heaton and LAMBcast newbie Lindsay Street of French Toast Sunday were all on hand to count down...

    LAMBcast #100


    The century mark has been reached!

    For this special episode, we abandon our usual format altogether! We make stunning changes to the structure of the show! We challenge the laws of time and space! Or…I gather as many of the founding fathers of the show as possible and we have an informal interview show, catching up on our lives, blogs, and podcasts (or lack thereof). I was joined by: Nick Jobe of Random Ramblings of a...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #99: The Evil Dead

    The setup here is extremely simple, so let’s get it out of the way quickly – the IMDb summary, for those unfamiliar:

    “Five friends go up to a cabin in the woods, where they find unspeakable evil lurking in the forest. They find a tome called the Necronomicon and the taped translation of the text. Once the tape is played, the evil is released. One by one, the teens are possessed. With only one remaining, it is up to...

    LAMBcast #98: Melancholia

    Stunning visuals. Parent/child dynamics. A controversial director pulling an award-winning performance out of his lead. An end result that received wildly divergent reactions from viewers, from the many claiming “masterpiece” to the perhaps-not-quite-as-many screaming “terrible!”

    Oh, and Melancholia is probably like The Tree of Life in any number of other ways as well. Bet you saw that coming a mile away, not...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #97: Dead Man

    To steal a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which will come up on the LAMBcast devoted to this MOTM, it’s quite possible that Jim Jarmusch, and this film in particular, are ” Too weird to live, and too rare to die.” Dead Man is some kind of neo-Western, a postmodern breed of film that’s too strange and slow perhaps for most audiences, but is music to the heart of so many others. Filled with striking images and...

    LAMBcast #96: The Muppets

    I say every week that the LAMBcast loves having new blood on the show, and I mean it. This week, we get two more newbies to the show, in the form of Brian of DearFilm.net and Dan of Fog’s (that’s pronounced ‘foges’) Movie Reviews. In the coming weeks, we’ll have even more, including (le gasp) some more women! You guys keep getting interested in the show, we’ll keep finding ways to get you all...

    LAMBcast #95: Holiday Films

    A few apologies on tap: first, this is being posted a bit later than I’d hoped, but I’ve been swamped and this is the soonest I could get to it. Second, as you’ll hear, there’s a bit of background noise throughout this show. Most of the time, it’s just that – background – which is cool by me (I used to love it on the old Simon & Jo Show), but occasionally, it gets a bit loud. But everyone was a...

    LAMBcast #94: Woody Allen

    Just in time for tomorrow’s latest addition to the LAMBs in the Director’s Chair series, the LAMBcast tackles the career of Woody Allen. Dylan, Sam, Dan Heaton, Alex and newcomer Danny Reid dug deep and attempted to rattle around the brain of the neurotic writer-director-actor-institution. We talked up and down the guy so much that we skipped out on the usual format and ditched Rants and Raves of the Week, though of course we...

    LAMBcast #93: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Not a lot of exposition needed here: Joel, Sam, Nick, Jason and Dylan got together to discuss their recent viewings. It’s a fun show – we know it, you know it, and there it is.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants of the Week
    * Raves of the Week
    * Last LAMB Standing

    If you’re interested, you too can be a LAMBcaster – we love new blood! For more information on the LAMBcast, check out the topic...
