Just two films this week, we’re in a smaller movie lull between Oscar-bait with a light comedy and a family animation, in which I’m reliably informed Zendaya plays Meechee. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Night School and Smallfoot:
LAMB Average: 3.08 (6 sites)
Mahan’s Media (4)
Screen Zealots (3.5)
There’s a new Halloween movie! Technically it’s the 11th Halloween movie. Also it’s the second. And it has the same title as the first. And the ninth. Which apparently doesn’t exist any more. Confused? Then you need to listen to this week’s Lambcast!
Jay and Richard were joined by Amanda, Courtney and Robert to cut open the new movie with a terrifyingly large knife and a worrying...
Welcome Back Students!
Rob from MovieRob here!
Like The Director’s Chair series being run by Tony, I think that this reignited series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.
I plan to try and focus on an actor or actress every month who has a birthday in that given...
The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!
For November’s MOTM poll there were five films submitted, but it was really only a two horse race between the competitors undertaking the most campaigning. Those two were Simon and Rob with The Hunt For Red October and Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It was an incredibly close run but, the winner, by just three votes is… The Hunt For Red...
This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Jeff Goldblum.
We received a total of 182 reviews for 29 films that Jeff Goldblum had parts in.
Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Jeff Goldblum’s career:
Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1)
Annie Hall (3)
Three films this week: one good, one bad, one entertaining but mediocre, nothing to really set the world alight. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Assassination Nation, The House With A Clock In Its Walls and Life Itself:
LAMB Average: 3.92 (6 sites)
The Michigan Movie Guy (5)
That Moment In (4.5)
The Movie Waffler...
It’s time for the some horror over on the Lambcast!
Traditionally the run up to Halloween is dedicated to horror films and franchise here at the LAMB, and that’s no different this year with our horror-themed Movie of the Month. This time around the original 1963 version of The Haunting is our focus, with its champion Howard Casner taking his first seat in the MOTM host chair. He’s joined by Sean, Tony,...
It’s never a good sign when a low-ranked film has a lot of reviews, as it generally means a lot of people were looking forward to something, made plans to see it and cared enough to put fingers to keyboard and write a review, but that it just wasn’t good. Alas that’s the case this week with one of my most anticipated films of the year, Shane Black’s The Predator, which under-performed with critics to a...
Romance! Addiction! Swimming! These films truly have everything, and we’re here to talk about it.
Jay’s ambivalence left Richard in the hosting seat to discuss the latest version of A Star is Born, along with the three (or four) previous iterations of the story. Some are great, others feature Gary Busey.
Also on tap: Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week and the most relevant game of Last Lamb Standing...
It’s time to vote for November’s Movie of the Month! The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first, the contenders!

As you should already know by now, Jeff Goldblum is our actor of the month in the newly-revived Acting School 101 feature, being hosted by me, MovieRob. Alongside the monthly blogathon held here on the LAMB site, I will also be hosting a monthly podcast episode devoted to the actor and their roles, and wouldn’t you know it but that’s this very show here!
I was joined by DJ from Simplistic Reviews to discuss all thing...
Apparently one of this week’s films, The Nun, is part of the Conjuring Cinematic Universe, a franchise that so far consists of five feature films, with three more announced for the near future, and as yet I haven’t seen any, any I’ve no real plans to either. Why not? Well it’s mainly that I’m not really a horror guy, but also to me they all sounded kind of dull, and given the reviews for The Nun...
