    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...

  • LAMBCAST #226 TAXI DRIVER MOTM

    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...

    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...

    LAMBCAST #222 BOOGIE NIGHT MOTM

    So it seems you people like listening to us talking about sex, what with last month’s winner being Shame, a movie focused on sex addiction, and this month’s winner being Boogie Nights, which is all about the porn industry in the 1970s and ’80s. So be it.

    Robert Zerbe was handed the hosting reigns for this show, and he was joined by regular host Jay Cluitt, Lindsay Street, MOTM champion Jess Manzo and newcomer...

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    There was a really eclectic bunch of movies up this month, but it seems another rule has been added for how to win the poll. From now on it’s not just time travel movies that guarantee a win, but films about sex too. That’s because this week’s winner is Boogie Nights!

    Congratulations go to the gang at French Toast Sunday, who by...

    LAMBCAST #218 MOTM SHAME

    We’re really exploring the varied landscape of cinema with our recent Movies of the Month, as last month we celebrated the fun sci-fi/comedy with the Back to the Future trilogy, and this month we delved into the somewhat murkier world of sex addiction with Steve McQueen’s Shame.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by the film’s champion, Alex Withrow, along with Stevee Taylor, Jess Manzo and Kristen Lopez to...

    The MOTM for May 2014 will be…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! And boy was it a nail-biter this time around!

    It was pretty close for four of the five films for almost the entire run (sadly my own All About Eve never really got off the starting block), but in the last few hours there was a last ditch attempt for both Rosemary’s Baby and Shame, with Shame eventually taking the crown by one solitary...

    LAMBCAST #214 BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY MOTM

    We’ve been going through a faze as of late with our Movie of the Months – if you want to get picked, it seems the best thing to do is champion a time travel movie. So when the Lambcast’s first trilogy edition came around and not one but three immensely popular time travel films were submitted, it’s no surprise that they won.

    Todd Liebenow was the successful victor with his choice of the Back to the...

    The MOTM for April 2014 will be…

    I recently put out the call for a new kind of Movie of the Month champion – a trilogy! We had an eclectic bunch of entrants, but as always there can be only one winner…

    …and that winner is Back to the Future! It became pretty clear that this was a two horse race, with the other most critically acclaimed trilogy amongst the competition – The Godfather trilogy – making a valiant effort, but...

    LAMBCAST #209 MOTM PITCH PERFECT

    Last month the MOTM champion was The Wild Bunch, a testosterone fuelled, bloody classic western. This month you’d find it difficult to find a film more different, as we sat down to discuss the 2012 female-driven a capella romantic comedy, Pitch Perfect.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by first time MOTM champion Matt Stewart along with DJ Valentine, Jess Manzo and Bubbawheat to discuss their aca-feeling about the movie, before...

    The MOTM for March 2014 will be…


    The last movie of the month was The Wild Bunch, a very male-dominated, testosterone soaked western that only featured women as targets, hookers or human shields, so it’s very fitting that the preceding month sees a very female-dominated movie taking the crown.

    Matt Stewart of Simplistic Reviews has won this month with Pitch Perfect, quite possibly the polar opposite of The Wild Bunch, which should therefore make for a...

    LAMBCAST #205 THE WILD BUNCH MOTM

    It’s been a while since we’ve had the chance to talk about a critically acclaimed film as the movie of the month, what with recent months delivering the likes of Timecop, Cocktail and Demolition Man, so it was something of a relief that, thanks to Will from Exploding Helicopter, we got to discuss Sam Peckinpah’s 1969 classic western The Wild Bunch.

    It was only fitting that the most American of movie genres had...
