    LAMBScores: The Turtles’ Journey into the Storm


    The 90s are back in style if this week’s LAMBScores are any indication. Fans of Twister and pizza-obsessed reptiles may be feeling déjà vu with the release of Into the Storm and the latest reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you’re not into those throwbacks then maybe you’ll be interested in What...

    The Movie of the Month for September 2014 will be…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    Another month has come and gone, and with it came a new Movie of the Month poll. Five very different films battled it out for supremity, but only once could win. And that film, is Flash Gordon.

    Congratulations go to DJ Valentine from Simplistic Reviews, who has won hosting duties for the Lambcast episode devoted to the movie. There is a Wild Card slot available...

  • LAMBCAST #230 GHOST WORLD MOTM

    LAMBCAST #230 GHOST WORLD MOTM

    There’s a lot of films in the world. A lot. Like, significantly more than a hundred. It’s pretty damn phenomenal then that two different LAMB members, who to their knowledge are not part of some paranormal cerebral link, submitted the same film for Movie of the Month, and that said film would win. Well, that’s what happened with Ghost World, Terry Zwigoff’s adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ cult graphic...

    LAMBScores: Apehood


    The film year is shaping up quite nicely as we have a new #1 LAMBScore for the 2nd week in row. Richard Linklater’s monumental film Boyhood has wowed the LAMBs with an abundance of perfect scores. It’s obviously the current must-see film, but our other new release is no slouch. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was also strongly reviewed and...

    Be a Part of ‘The Festival Experience’!

    Hey! This is Shala from Life Between Films, film festival contributor for LAMB.

I hope to expand what is presented in this little corner of the LAMB site and make it something that all of you would love to read and participate in.  Here is currently how you can be apart of ‘The Festival Experience’ with...

    LAMBScores: Tammy’s Life


    It’s been a while since we’ve had a documentary in the LAMBScores, but we’ve finally got one in Life Itself. Considering the topic (the life of Roger Ebert), it’s no surprise that this would have been well-received. As you’ll see below, the film has firmly taken over the #1 spot in this year’s LAMBScores. We also have reviews for...

    The MOTM for August 2014 will be…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    I’m pretty sure this has never happened before. When I put the call out for Movie of the Month champions recently, two separate people managed to put the same film forward. The odds against that are pretty damn astronomical, but clearly it would seem that the best way for your film to win is to have two Lambs campaigning for it, because the winner for August 2014 is...

    LAMBScores: The Snowpiercer Age Begins


    Transformers: Age of Extinction may have dominated the box office but our sophisticated LAMBs were clearly more interested in the other new releases. Making his English-language debut, Joon-ho Bong’s Snowpiercer easily found a place in our Top 10 LAMBScores of the year. In addition, John Carney’s Begin Again received...
