    LAMBCAST #239 AUDITION MOTM

    We’re celebrating Halloween all month here on the Lambcast, and we’re kicking things off with the first ever horror-themed Movie of the Month. From a wide variety of scary movies, 1999′s Japanese torture-thriller Audition came out as the winner, so that’s what we talked about.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by his co-host Robert Zerbe, Audition’s champion Matt Stewart as well as Jess...

    The Movie of the Month for October 2014 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For the first Lambcast MOTM Horror Special, we had a mixed bag of applicants ranging from the classic to the genre-defining, and a bit of torture throw in as well. The results are in and the winner has been decided, and that winner is…. oh no. Damn. It’s Audition.

    Congratulations and personal threats should be sent to Matt Stewart from...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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 MOTM for June 2014 will be…

    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...
