    LAMBcast #137: Argo

    We didn’t have a LAMBcast on the schedule for last weekend, but as you may or may not know, Tom Clift made his way from Australia about six weeks ago to North America and has been catching up with LAMBs and other movie bloggers all over this continent ever since.  Earlier this week, he made his way to Phoenix to sleep on my couch for a few days, and Argo had been a tentatively scheduled show once upon a time, and we’d...

    LAMBcast #109: Films You Love But Can’t Recommend to Others

    The title more or less says it all for episode 109, doesn’t it.  Be they uncomfortable to sit through (by yourself or with others) or embarassing – whatever the reason, the films that make up the lists we came up with share the titular common trait.  Thanks to Courtney of Big Thoughts From a Small Mind for the topic idea.  Sharing their lists were Dylan, Nick, Brian, Stevee and James.

    LAMBcast #106: Roll Your Own Top 5

    It was a conglomeration of shepherds (and other LAMB luminaries) as the latest LAMBcast found not only host Dylan (founder, former shepherd) but also recently resigned shepherd Rachel and the new boss man Joel on board, as well as Nick and James.  This week, we each rolled our own Top 5s in a wide range of topics, from monkeys to wanted sequels to hidden gems to dystopian films, with a bunch of boobs and penises in between.

    LAMBcast #100


    The century mark has been reached!

    For this special episode, we abandon our usual format altogether! We make stunning changes to the structure of the show! We challenge the laws of time and space! Or…I gather as many of the founding fathers of the show as possible and we have an informal interview show, catching up on our lives, blogs, and podcasts (or lack thereof). I was joined by: Nick Jobe of Random Ramblings of a...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #88: Bronson

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #88: Bronson

    Tom Hardy has been acting in high-profile films since the early 2000s (Black Hawk Dawn, Star Trek: Nemesis), but it wasn’t until 2008 when he made a name for himself, first in Guy Ritchie’s “comeback” film RockNRolla, and subsequently in the film of the day, Bronson. The sixth film from Danish director Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive) is, well…have a look at the plot synopsis from IMDb, as it might be the most...

    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...

    LAMBcast #83: David Cronenberg

    In honor of the recent Director’s Chair blog-a-thon celebrating his catalog, the latest LAMBcast takes a look at the work of David Cronenberg, film by film. First-time host James walked Joel, Dan Heaton and first-time LAMBcaster Alan through the eccentric Canadian’s film, and it might surprise you to learn which is the group’s collective favorite. (I’d say “be gentle” to James, but he did a pretty great...

    LAMBcast #82: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Average length of an episode hosted by Dylan: 58 minutes.

    Average length of an episode hosted by Jason: 236 minutes.*

    * All times approximate.

    I kid, of course. Yes, before you get started, you should know that this is a bit of a marathon episode, clocking in at just under two hours (which I frown upon from other weekly podcasts). However, after having listening to most of it in the editing process, I can tell you that...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #76: The Third Man

    Veteran LAMBcaster James was pushing hard for The Third Man to be the next MOTM for a few months now, and he finally got his way. The 1949 drama starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles is regularly included on lists of the best noir films and was voted in 1999 as the best British film of the 20th century by the BFI.

    For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:
    “An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly...

    LAMBcast #74: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    My apologies for the late posting of this episode – you’d think that a long holiday weekend would have given me more time to get this done, but it had the opposite effect.

    Anyway, ep 74 saw us returning to an old favorite – namely, discussing some of our recent viewings. Steadfast LAMBcasters Dylan, James and Nick were treated to something that I think is pretty cool: Anomalous Material’s Red Georges was able...

    LAMBcast #73: The LAMMY-nominated Podcasts Roast

    It’s funny – I think I usually refer to this show as the “homage” or “tribute show” to the LAMMY-nominated podcasts, but let’s be honest – it’s more like a roast, since we’re less about singing praises (just this once) and more about having fun with the shows. Offensive? Perhaps, but as I say in the show, we’re lovers of these podcasts and are doing this all in good fun, so...

    LAMBcast #72: X-Men: First Class

    Dylan, James and Rachel are joined by not one but two new members of the LAMBcast class – Sam of Duke and the Movies and Dan of Lee and Dan’s Midnight Movie Club – as we discuss that supposed First Class of X-Men. We also get into a spirited debate over that eternal question: To Popcorn or Not To Popcorn?
