    Last LAMB Standing: Standings through Episode 88

    For those unfamiliar with the LAMBcast, at the end of the show each week, we play a couple games called Last LAMB Standing. It’s a very simple idea: the game’s host names an actor or actress, and the players cycle through said actor’s films until they can no longer name any, at which point they are out. The last player left is the victor.

    The task of producing the stats for the game has been requested of me for some...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #88: Bronson

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #88: Bronson

    Tom Hardy has been acting in high-profile films since the early 2000s (Black Hawk Dawn, Star Trek: Nemesis), but it wasn’t until 2008 when he made a name for himself, first in Guy Ritchie’s “comeback” film RockNRolla, and subsequently in the film of the day, Bronson. The sixth film from Danish director Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive) is, well…have a look at the plot synopsis from IMDb, as it might be the most...

    LAMBcast #87

    Yes, I’m still behind, and I apologize. This episode is posted a few days late and I’ve got to get the next one up in time for Saturday’s MOTM. The pressure! 😉

    Anyway, episode 87 was one of our increasingly rare “one-off” episodes where host Nick talked to Courtney, Alan, and Fredo about films that they love that are pretty much unloved or unseen by the rest of the world. So you might call them guilty...

    LAMBcast #86: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    This episode was supposed to be posted sometime last weekend, but instead I decided to have a terrible stomach ache that ended with me getting my appendix cut out on Saturday night.

    All is well, though, and I’m back to deliver to you another gangbusters edition of WBWL, where we cover films from the 60s, 70s, 80s on up through this year. In on this one was myself as host, joined by my co-host Nick, Courtney, Sam, and the Official...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #85: Bande à parte

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #85: Bande à parte

    Are you ready to get your Nouvelle Vague on? We take a gander at Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Bande à parte for the MOTM this time out.

    For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:

    “A triangle: Franz, Arthur, and Odile. Franz, a young man with Alain Delon good looks, has met Odile in an English class. She lives in Joinville with wealthy benefactors and has mentioned to Franz that Mr. Stolz keeps a pile...

    LAMBcast #84: LAMBpardy! (#2)

    The LAMBcast’s version of America’s Favorite Game Show (or is that Wheel of Fortune? Price is Right?) is back! Kai returns as the reigning champion – can he hold his crown against challengers Nick and Rachel? Will a certain famous Bond actor’s “appearance” on SNL be referenced? Can Dylan get through the start of a discussion without flubbing his lines? These questions and more will be answered…on...

    LAMBcast #83: David Cronenberg

    In honor of the recent Director’s Chair blog-a-thon celebrating his catalog, the latest LAMBcast takes a look at the work of David Cronenberg, film by film. First-time host James walked Joel, Dan Heaton and first-time LAMBcaster Alan through the eccentric Canadian’s film, and it might surprise you to learn which is the group’s collective favorite. (I’d say “be gentle” to James, but he did a pretty great job...

    LAMBcast #82: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Average length of an episode hosted by Dylan: 58 minutes.

    Average length of an episode hosted by Jason: 236 minutes.*

    * All times approximate.

    I kid, of course. Yes, before you get started, you should know that this is a bit of a marathon episode, clocking in at just under two hours (which I frown upon from other weekly podcasts). However, after having listening to most of it in the editing process, I can tell you that...

    LAMBcast #81: Fall/Winter Preview (aka Our Top 5s for the Rest of the Year)

    So many films, so little time. There was some worry early on that there would be overlap with a lot of our individual top fives, but that proved not to really be the case, as there’s a wide array of interesting flicks coming down the pike in the next few months. So many films that (spoiler alert!) not a single person chose either of Spielberg’s flicks or Scorsese’s kids’ movie. And to top it all off, we had another...

    The next Movie of the Month will be…

    The poll results are in – thank you to the 80 voters (tying the record high) who took part. The next MOTM will be Bande à parte. Here’s what needs to go down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that September 24th is the big day.

    * You have four weeks to watch the flick (if you haven’t already) and to write up something, then send me the link (dylan at to either...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #80: The Long Kiss Goodnight

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #80: The Long Kiss Goodnight

    Renny Harlin’s 1996 film The Long Kiss Goodnight was, for better or worse, mostly left behind by audiences. With a $65 million budget and close to $100 million in worldwide receipts, it undoubtedly made money, but its $33 million gross in the United States stamped the film as a failure in spite of overall positive reviews. More to the point, since its release, it seems to have been largely forgotten by film fans, wedged somewhere in...

    LAMBcast #79: 5-on-5

    Boy, oh boy, that sure is one smashingly sexy pic of Daniel Craig, ain’t it? Wondering why I chose it as the featured image for this episode? Well, all will be revealed in time. For #79, Nick tries out a new spin on an old fave, namely with a feature discussion segment he deemed as 5-on-5 (and if you think that sounds gay, what with five gents being involved in the recording of the show…just wait till it starts!). Anyway, he was...
