    LAMBCAST #195: OLDBOY (2013)

    I was recently having a discussion with your Shep Joel about some various blogging- and LAMB-related things, and he said something interesting: “I like that there has been one of those typical 18 month shifts with a lot of new members etc.” 

    I’m not sure if it’s officially some kind of 18-month cycle, but the sentiment is true: the LAMBcast is going through (another) renaissance of new members.  This...

    LAMBCAST #186: MOST ANTICIPATED FOR THE REST OF 2013

    Fall officially kicked off on September 22nd, and while the prestige film fare might not arrive simultaneously, we all know that the awards season (and the year’s second blockbuster season) come fairly quickly afterwards.  As such, film buffs salivate over all of the potentially great films set to arrive from October through New Year’s.  Here at the LAMBcast, it’s become an annual tradition to look forward and...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #179: DOUBLE INDEMNITY

    Wanna win the Movie of the Month poll? 

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a lock – particularly not when there’s more than one film meeting the criteria – but choosing a film from pre-1965 seems to be a pretty solid strategy.  I also wouldn’t go so far as to say that that was the strategy Dan Heaton had in mind when he chose Double Indemnity as his film to Champion, but the results...

    LAMBCAST #177: GET TO KNOW YOUR LAMBCASTERS

    Sometimes we need to take a step back from reviewing films or talking about what we’ve been watching lately or playing LAMBpardy to just talk amongst ourselves.  To learn a bit more about each other, outside of our love of films.  With that said, I present to you the second edition of Get To Know Your LAMBcasters, where I was joined by Joel, Joe, Kristen and first-timer Robert Zerbe of To the Escape Hatch.  We talked about swimming...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #171: DEAD ALIVE

    Long before Peter Jackson became known for becoming J.R.R. Tolkien or remaking King Kong, he was that big, hairy fella from New Zealand known for grossout horror comedies.  His third feature was 1992′s Dead Alive , a film that wasn’t received all that well two decades ago but is now seen as a cult classic.  The gang from French Toast Sunday championed the film after barely losing out to American...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #167: AMERICAN PSYCHO

    Feels like forever since we’ve had one of these, no?

    A serial killer horror-comedy period piece…in the wrong hands, American Psycho might have been a nightmare all its own.  But director Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol), who also adapted the screenplay of Bret Easton Ellis’ novel, delivered a pop culture postcard complete with one of the all-time great breakout roles in Christian Bale’s...

    LAMBCAST #165: FRANCHISE LOOK-BACK: THE DISNEY RENAISSANCE

    As I mention during the show (and for anyone that was paying attention over at the Forums), this episode was initially intended to be split in two.  After all, we cover an insane nine (!) films in it.  However, life found a way to get in the way and we were forced to do it all in one monstrous ep.  So you ought to know that you’re in for a long ride, though considering the number of films discussed, I think we were pretty...

    LAMBCAST #164: TOP 5 ACTIVE DIRECTORS

    This episode is being posted later than was planned, so let’s get right to it:

    Originally, we’d planned to split our Franchise Look-back on the Disney Renaissance films (nine of them!) into two episodes.  Unfortunately, scheduling issues forced us to combine them both into one monstrous episode (coming next week).  As such, we had a free week and a spontaneous topic arise within the last couple days prior to the recording...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #158: <i>Identity</i>

    I don’t want to say that MOTM poll winner Justin (of Man, I Love Films) did anything improper to not only win the poll but destroy the competition (especially since he’s a friend of mine and writes for my site), but let’s just say that the reaction to his choice of film and the amount of reactions from LAMB members didn’t exactly substantiate the pick.  And yet, it’s not as though we on the LAMBcast came up...

    LAMBcast #155: Whatcha Been Watching Lately?

    It’s been a busy time around the LAMBcast parts as of late.  Academy Award predictions, the recent Nightmare on Elm Street franchise look-back, the upcoming Las Vegas episode.  As such, it was nice to kick and just talk about some recent viewings, theatrical or otherwise.  On hand for the discussion was Joel, Kristen, Dan, Jay, and Dylan.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants and Raves of the Week (featuring an epic – in...

    LAMBcast #151: Top 5 Most Anticipated for 2013

    MOTM/LAMBcast #149: Night of the Comet

    The Princess BrideWatchmenDawn of the Dead?  Big films, you might say?  Night of the Comet can’t hear you.  Kristen chose this barely-seen apocalyptic zombie sci-fi-comedy and it tore up the competition.  The question is, is it underseen/underloved or justly forgotten?

    Before we get to the links, here’s the IMDb summary for the film, for those that aren’t familiar with...
