    The Movie of the Month for February 2015 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    Last month we proved that anything can win Movie of the Month by, um, celebrating? Southland Tales. Fortunately for February, a bunch of more highly regarded films were submitted, from Buster Keaton to Rodney Dangerfield, via Disney along the way. However, the winner for February is a film that’s been submitted many times before, but has finally taken the gold. That...

    LAMBCAST #252 SOUTHLAND TALES MOTM

    January and February are often described as being black holes for movie watching. The more prestige movies have all been released in time for the awards season, leaving the studios to fill the screens with the dregs left at the bottom of their barrels. Well, we here at the Lambcast seem to follow a similar schedule because, just as last January we celebrated the Jean-Claude Van Damme classic Timecop, this month we get down and confused with...

As usual, the first of these will be January, and once again a bunch of movies were vying for the coveted title of Movie of the Month. There were a few films that took an early lead, but right near the end there was a sudden...

    LAMBCAST #247 DIE HARD 2 MOTM

    ’twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except… for the five of us on this podcast talking about Die Hard 2.

    It’s the first ever festive-special Movie of the Month (not counting Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which won regardless of its Christmas-setting) and the character-actor filled action sequel won the poll, allowing Will Slater to take another turn in the...

    The Movie of the Month for December 2014 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

I put the call out for movies and champions, and a decidedly eclectic mix of Christmas movies were entered. We had everything from classic family to foreign warfare, forgotten horror to...

    LAMBCAST #235 FLASH GORDON MOTM

    FLASH! Aaaa-aaaaah!

    Get ready for a lot of that on this show. Also, myriad Brian Blessed impressions and a riotous good time as the gang discuss the ridiculously sublime Flash Gordon. You see, a few weeks ago we held an International Character Actor draft. A lot of movies got brought up, but one more than the rest, Flash Gordon. Blessed, Dalton and Von Sydow were all discussed at length on that show, which I’m pretty sure...

    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...
