Just two films for you this week, neither of which I thought looked particularly good, but that could be more for my general disinterest in Jennifer Lawrence than anything else. Anyway, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Red Sparrow and Death Wish:
LAMB Average: 2.88 (8 sites)
Kirkham A Movie A Day (4)
As many of you who follow my site may have noticed, I just ‘celebrated my 3900th movie review milestone since the inception of this blog nearly 5 years ago.
So that means that I now have started to prepare for the next big milestone – 4000 movies watched and reviewed.
For my 1000th, 1500th, 2000th, 2500th, 3000th and 3500th milestones, I chose to run Movies From the Hat where my readers chose films for me to watch...
On this week’s Lambcast we held our first Director Draft and focused on the one and only Steven Spielberg, you can (and should) listen to the show here. Now it’s time to vote for the team you think is the best! The poll is at the bottom , but first, the teams!
Jeanette’s Team: Jurassic Park, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, Bridge of Spies, The Post
We’ve got two movies for you this week. First up is Annihilation, Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina, which went straight to Netflix everywhere outside of the US (fine by me, it means I’ve seen it), and then there’s Game Night, which sounds far better than expected. Check them out, and check out the reviews from the LAMB community:
Ready Player One is just a couple of weeks away from being released, and it’s a film we at the Lambcast are pretty excited about, so it seemed like the perfect time to celebrate the career of one of the greatest directors working today, and the best way we know to celebrate something is to critique, debate and flat-out fight over it in a draft.
Jay Cluitt was joined by Heather Baxendale, Richard Kirkham, Jeanette...
The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!
As is customary, our April Movie of the Month is a franchise special, and as usual we had a pretty diverse range of franchises put forward, from animation to superheroes, indie romance to, well, Tremors, but there’s no real shock as to what eventually won, although some others were chasing like a giant boulder rolling behind it for some time. If that’s not a big...
I don’t mean to disrespect the previous few weeks of Lambscores, but I think it’s fair to say that today is where 2018’s films really begin, at least in terms of spectacle. Paddington 2 may still hold the top spot for the year so far (a fact I am in no way annoyed by), but in terms of a cultural milestone and slice of event cinema you can’t really compare anything so far to Black Panther. As such I...
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...
This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Steve McQueen.
We received a total of 63 reviews for 27 films that Steve McQueen had parts in.
That’s quite an impressive amount.
Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Steve McQueen’s career:
An Enemy of the People (1)
Baby the Rain Must Fall...
It’s time for everyone’s favourite time of the year, Celebrity Lambpardy!
Alas your regular celebrity host, Sean Connery, was too ill to record, but fortunately Nicolas Cage stepped up to the plate to attempt to wrangle this year’s competitors in some kind of order. Joining him in the Lambpardy studio were Matthew McConaughey, Swedish Chef, Jimmy Stewart, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Fierstein and Al...
