    LAMBcast #90: The Ides of March

    George Clooney. Ryan Gosling. Paul Giamatti. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Jeffrey Wright. Evan Rachel Wood. Director Clooney was able to gather together an all-star cast for his political drama about idealism and honesty, but was he able to make an all-star film? How important (and rare) are films such as this. Those questions and more were tackled by Fredo, Sam, host Dylan, and LAMBcast newbie Alex of And So It Begins…

    LAMBcast #89: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Obscure zombies, memorable births, embarrassing theatrical trips, and standalone superheroes…in other words, it was high time for another Roll Your Own Top 5 episode, and I must say, the LAMBcasters came through with another batch of interesting lists. On hand for the shenanigans this time around were Dylan, Nick, Dan Heaton and Fredo.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants of the Week
    * Raves of the Week

    Poll Results; New Poll

    How very insightful these latest poll results were. Aside from the majority who admitted to not listening to the LAMBcast, all recurring features found equal amounts of love. Make of that what you will.

    With Halloween less than two weeks away, I wanna know: What is your favorite decade for horror films?…

  • Last LAMB Standing: Standings through Episode 88

    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

    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)

    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...
