    LAMBCAST #180: ELYSIUM

    I had previously alluded to there being a so-called LAMBcast Summer Series.  Over the past few months, we’ve covered Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Fast & Furious 6, and Man of Steel.  Finally, we’ve come to the end, with Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up to 2009’s surprise blockbuster District 9.  Elysium is set in a similar world and time and covers themes not all...

    LAMBcast #160: Bring Your Own Discussion Topic

    First off – if you haven’t yet, go follow The LAMBcast on Twitter!

    What’s better than one feature discussion?  How about four of ‘em?  

    It’s only took about three years, but I think it’s safe to say that we’ve got a nice stable of rotating general show outlines (Whatcha Been Watching Lately?, Roll Your Own Top 5, Franchise Look-Backs, etc), and Bring Your Own Discussion Topic is just one of...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #153: <i>Last Year at Marienbad</i>

    I could easily lead off with some joke about how abstract Last Year at Marienbad is or how much I want to play Nim or what those people standing there like mannequins might have been thinking the whole time this film was made, but frankly, I think we did enough of that on the podcast (see below).  Suffice to say, Marienbad is a strange, interesting, boring, mysterious, exciting, beautiful, bizarre film…often times all...

    LAMBcast #118: Brian Roan vs. the World

    From the onset, this seemed like a bad idea – one podcast, eight people.  Our previous high for participants on a LAMBcast was six, and my general line of thinking is that any more than five leaves the potential for listener overload, particularly if the listener is not familiar with all of the voices that they’re hearing.  But the thought of throwing seven fans of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World against one hater was just...

    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 #98: Melancholia

    Stunning visuals. Parent/child dynamics. A controversial director pulling an award-winning performance out of his lead. An end result that received wildly divergent reactions from viewers, from the many claiming “masterpiece” to the perhaps-not-quite-as-many screaming “terrible!”

    Oh, and Melancholia is probably like The Tree of Life in any number of other ways as well. Bet you saw that coming a mile away, not...

    LAMBcast #96: The Muppets

    I say every week that the LAMBcast loves having new blood on the show, and I mean it. This week, we get two more newbies to the show, in the form of Brian of DearFilm.net and Dan of Fog’s (that’s pronounced ‘foges’) Movie Reviews. In the coming weeks, we’ll have even more, including (le gasp) some more women! You guys keep getting interested in the show, we’ll keep finding ways to get you all...
