    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...

    LAMBCAST #217 WHATCHA BEEN WATCHIN’ LATELY

    It’s time again to do what we do best here at the Lambcast; talk about some movies we’ve seen recently. This time around Dylan Fields held the hosting duties, and he was joined by Daniel Lackey, Lindsay Street and Nick Rehak to discuss a couple of new releases, an Oscar nominee and a David Lynch oddity.

    As always tangents derailed the discussion – Lynch aversion, horrific English accents and the upcoming...

    LAMBCAST #216 GET TO KNOW YOUR LAMBCASTERS #3

    We have quite a large pool of contributors here on the Lambcast, so it’s understandable if maybe you don’t get to know the ins and outs of their personalities as well as you might like. Therefore it’s time to dig a little deeper into the lives and tastes of some of our regulars.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by Jess Manzo, Will Slater, Daniel Lackey and JD Duran to talk about themselves for an inordinate amount...

    LAMBCAST #215 DARONOFSKY DIRECTROSPECTIVE

    Director Retrospectives are generally few and far between on the Lambcast – it’s difficult to find a director with a manageable body of work that’s relatively easy to get hold of – so when Darren Aronofsky scheduled a new film – Noah – to come out, we jumped at the chance to devote a podcast to the man.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by Lindsay Street, Will Slater, The Vern and newcomer Cristina...

    LAMBCAST #214 BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY MOTM

    We’ve been going through a faze as of late with our Movie of the Months – if you want to get picked, it seems the best thing to do is champion a time travel movie. So when the Lambcast’s first trilogy edition came around and not one but three immensely popular time travel films were submitted, it’s no surprise that they won.

    Todd Liebenow was the successful victor with his choice of the Back to the...
