    MOTM/LAMBcast #158: <i>Identity</i>

    I don’t want to say that MOTM poll winner Justin (of Man, I Love Films) did anything improper to not only win the poll but destroy the competition (especially since he’s a friend of mine and writes for my site), but let’s just say that the reaction to his choice of film and the amount of reactions from LAMB members didn’t exactly substantiate the pick.  And yet, it’s not as though we on the LAMBcast came up...

    LAMBcast addendum: Vote on our Actor’s Career Draft!

    I was going to wait a few days to post this as a means to incentivize people to listen to the show prior to seeing and voting on our picks, but with the LAMMY nominations included in episode #117, I’m not exactly sure I really need to worry about that.  With over 200 downloads already, it’s safe to say that most of you have heard it…that is, unless you skipped right over the Cruise Draft and went straight to the...

  • LAMBcast #117: Actor’s Career Draft (Tom Cruise)…oh, and the LAMMY nominations!

    LAMBcast #117: Actor’s Career Draft (Tom Cruise)…oh, and the LAMMY nominations!

    Should I even bother to pretend that more than half of this show’s audience cares about anything other than the fact that it includes the LAMMY nominations?  Let’s not pretend.  So yes, while we’d love it if you stuck around and became a lifelong fan of the show (and of LAMB-produced podcasts, in general), I know the score.  So do try to enjoy our goofy draft of Tom Cruise movies (I’ll post the poll mentioned in the...

    PLUG: Hot Docs and Big Thoughts

    What do James Franco, erotic dolls, Bob Marley, and female wrestlers have in common? The answer is they are just a few of the numerous subjects that will be explored at Hot Docs, North America’s largest documentary film festival.  The 2012 edition of Hot Docs is running from April 26th to May 6th in Toronto.  Big Thoughts from a Small Mind will be covering Hot Docs again this year...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #97: Dead Man

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #97: Dead Man

    To steal a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which will come up on the LAMBcast devoted to this MOTM, it’s quite possible that Jim Jarmusch, and this film in particular, are ” Too weird to live, and too rare to die.” Dead Man is some kind of neo-Western, a postmodern breed of film that’s too strange and slow perhaps for most audiences, but is music to the heart of so many others. Filled with striking images and...

    LAMBcast #87

    Yes, I’m still behind, and I apologize. This episode is posted a few days late and I’ve got to get the next one up in time for Saturday’s MOTM. The pressure! 😉

    Anyway, episode 87 was one of our increasingly rare “one-off” episodes where host Nick talked to Courtney, Alan, and Fredo about films that they love that are pretty much unloved or unseen by the rest of the world. So you might call them guilty...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #85: Bande à parte

    Are you ready to get your Nouvelle Vague on? We take a gander at Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Bande à parte for the MOTM this time out.

    For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:

    “A triangle: Franz, Arthur, and Odile. Franz, a young man with Alain Delon good looks, has met Odile in an English class. She lives in Joinville with wealthy benefactors and has mentioned to Franz that Mr. Stolz keeps a pile...

    PLUG: Big Thoughts from a Small Mind

    Back in June we at Big Thoughts From a Small Mind decided to revamp our “Must See List” of films. The original list consisted of films that we had been meaning to see for a while but just never got around to. To spice thing up a bit, we decided to create a new list that was a mix of films that we had been procrastinating on seeing and films that were recommended by others.

    While we received a great number of recommendations from...

    Interview with a LAMBpire: CS of Big Thoughts From A Small Mind
    Andrew here with another entry of Interview with a LAMBpire, and as per normal I’m egregiously late about it. Apparently, I can’t change my ways. The last time I featured an interview with Marshall (here) after he won an entry of LAMB Casting, and our most recent winner is CS of Big Thoughts From A Small Mind who won for recasting Forrest Gump.  Here’s some of his intelligent thoughts on aspects of...
