    LAMBracket: Best Christmas Movie Round 1-1 Results

    The bracket proper has begun, and some LAMB favourites have already been knocked out. The first match saw the underdog Arthur Christmas face off against the might of It’s A Wonderful Life and, given how Arthur only barely defeated The Polar Express in the play-offs it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to hear that Clarence didn’t go around granting any wishes for Arthur and the Santa family today. Here are the full...

    The Movie of the Month for December 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For December’s MOTM poll we once again took a festive-themed diversion into primarily Christmas films, with a Hanukkah one thrown in for good measure this year too, and as with previous winners (Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Gremlins, Batman Returns), the winner isn’t a film that everybody might consider a holiday film, but which...

    LAMBCAST #449: HALLOWEEN 2018

    There’s a new Halloween movie! Technically it’s the 11th Halloween movie. Also it’s the second. And it has the same title as the first. And the ninth. Which apparently doesn’t exist any more. Confused? Then you need to listen to this week’s Lambcast!

    Jay and Richard were joined by Amanda, Courtney and Robert to cut open the new movie with a terrifyingly large knife and a worrying...
