    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...

    LAMBCAST #226 TAXI DRIVER MOTM

     

    Martin Scorsese has a lot of classic movies under his belt, but you could argue that Taxi Driver was his first. IMDb describes it as “A mentally unstable Vietnam war veteran works as a night-time taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge for violent action, attempting to save a preadolescent prostitute in the process,” but is there more to it than...

    LAMBScores: Tomorrow’s Fault


    We have an interesting pair of new releases this week. The first film (Edge of Tomorrow) stars Tom Cruise, one of the biggest movie stars in the past few decades. This acclaimed actioner fairly well at the box office but it’s clear that times are a-changin’. The big box office draw appealed more to this new generation – The Fault in Our...

    The MOTM for July 2014 will be…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    Another month, another intriguing assortment of movies, and another winner. Last month we saw a film all about making pornography, and now we’ve got one where an adult theatre plays an integral part of a key scene. That’s right, this month’s winner is Taxi Driver.

    Congratulations go to Will from Exploding Helicopter, who by winning...

    LAMBScores: Maleficent’s Dirty Ways


    After a strong batch of new releases last week, it was hard for these LAMBScores to match up. The lammies just didn’t seem very enthused by Maleficent or A Million Ways to Die in the West. Filth fared a little better, but it also has its detractors. Check out all the reviews below and don’t forget to contribute yours...

    Character Actors! I don’t know about you, but I love ‘em, hence why back in Episode #187 we got together and drafted a bunch of them from North America. Well, now it’s time to do it again, this time picking from the rest of the world.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by Dylan Fields, Daniel Lackey, DJ Valentine and returning champion Dan Heaton to debate whether Ben Kingsley, Timothy Dalton and Guy Pearce can be...
