    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
