  • LAMBCAST #249 THE HOBBIT TRILOGY

    LAMBCAST #249 THE HOBBIT TRILOGY

    Peter Jackson’s time in Middle Earth has once again come to an end with the closing part of The Hobbit’s trilogy, The Battle of the Five Armies. As I’m a massive fan of the previous Hobbit movies and the Lord of the Rings saga, it seemed only right to devote a show to the trilogy, so here it is.

     Host Jay Cluitt was joined by fellow Hobbit-lovers Will Kouf, Nick Rehak and kind-of-but-not-really...

    LAMBCAST #248 BRING A DISCUSSION TOPIC

    It’s been a very long time since we’ve done one of these shows, but considering how well this one turned out we’ll definitely be doing another one again soon.

    Host Jay was joined by Nick, Will and Todd to talk Christmas traditions, 2014 in film, trailer trashing and reviewing the unreviewable, but really this was just four guys going on all sorts of tangents, particularly Will, who seemed intent on making a...

    LAMBCAST #247 DIE HARD 2 MOTM

    ’twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except… for the five of us on this podcast talking about Die Hard 2.

    It’s the first ever festive-special Movie of the Month (not counting Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which won regardless of its Christmas-setting) and the character-actor filled action sequel won the poll, allowing Will Slater to take another turn in the...

    LAMBCAST #244 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY MOTM

    It’s time for the latest Movie of the Month, and this time we’re heading into the realm of science fiction to look at Stanley Kubrick’s intergalactic classic, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Host, movie champion and 2001 virgin Jay Cluitt was joined by Robert Zerbe, Jess Manzo and Nick Rehak for an all-French Toast Sunday edition show, during which they all attempted to get to grips with monkeys, monoliths and space...

    LAMBCAST #239 AUDITION MOTM

    We’re celebrating Halloween all month here on the Lambcast, and we’re kicking things off with the first ever horror-themed Movie of the Month. From a wide variety of scary movies, 1999′s Japanese torture-thriller Audition came out as the winner, so that’s what we talked about.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by his co-host Robert Zerbe, Audition’s champion Matt Stewart as well as Jess...

    LAMBCAST #232 WHATCHA BEEN WATCHIN’ LATELY – TV EDITION

    Do you ever regret asking someone to be a co-host of your podcast? No? Well maybe you should give Robert a try. I brought him on to the show because a) he’s funny, knowledgeable and a pretty all-round good guy when it comes to discussing films, and b) to occasionally give me a week off hosting this thing, but then he goes and does a show all about TV. This is the LAMBcast, as in Large Association of MOVIE Blogs. Movies! Not TV! I can...

    LAMBCAST #230 GHOST WORLD MOTM

    There’s a lot of films in the world. A lot. Like, significantly more than a hundred. It’s pretty damn phenomenal then that two different LAMB members, who to their knowledge are not part of some paranormal cerebral link, submitted the same film for Movie of the Month, and that said film would win. Well, that’s what happened with Ghost World, Terry Zwigoff’s adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ cult graphic...

    LAMBCAST #226 TAXI DRIVER MOTM

     

    Martin Scorsese has a lot of classic movies under his belt, but you could argue that Taxi Driver was his first. IMDb describes it as “A mentally unstable Vietnam war veteran works as a night-time taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge for violent action, attempting to save a preadolescent prostitute in the process,” but is there more to it than...

    LAMBCAST #225 PLANET OF THE APES

    It’s time for another franchise look-back, and it’s one that I’ve been particularly looking forward to, because I hadn’t seen any of the original movies. This time we got our hands on some damn dirty apes, for the Planet of the Apes franchise.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by the shepherd, Joel Burman, Todd Liebenow and newcomer Sam Thorne to discuss the original five movies, as well as the Tim Burton...

    LAMBCAST #222 BOOGIE NIGHT MOTM

    So it seems you people like listening to us talking about sex, what with last month’s winner being Shame, a movie focused on sex addiction, and this month’s winner being Boogie Nights, which is all about the porn industry in the 1970s and ’80s. So be it.

    Robert Zerbe was handed the hosting reigns for this show, and he was joined by regular host Jay Cluitt, Lindsay Street, MOTM champion Jess Manzo and newcomer...

    The MOTM for June 2014 will be…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    There was a really eclectic bunch of movies up this month, but it seems another rule has been added for how to win the poll. From now on it’s not just time travel movies that guarantee a win, but films about sex too. That’s because this week’s winner is Boogie Nights!

    Congratulations go to the gang at French Toast Sunday, who by...

    LAMBCAST #218 MOTM SHAME

    We’re really exploring the varied landscape of cinema with our recent Movies of the Month, as last month we celebrated the fun sci-fi/comedy with the Back to the Future trilogy, and this month we delved into the somewhat murkier world of sex addiction with Steve McQueen’s Shame.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by the film’s champion, Alex Withrow, along with Stevee Taylor, Jess Manzo and Kristen Lopez to...
