    LAMBCAST #233 1984 MOVIE DRAFT

    We here at the Lambcast are always open to show suggestions from our participants and listeners, so when Todd from Forgotten Films suggested a draft dedicated to the movies of 1984, we jumped at the chance. In case you weren’t aware, Todd has been hosting a blog-a-thon over on his site, for which many other blogs and podcasts have been reviewing or focusing on the movies made 30 years ago.

    Host Jay Cluitt joined Todd, as...

    LAMBCAST #231 GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

     

    Some called it a gamble, a risk, possibly Marvel’s most challenging movie yet, but in the end it turned out that The Guardians of the Galaxy was a resounding success. Hopefully by now you’ve seen it too, so go ahead and listen to the show to find out what we all loved about it.

    LAMBCAST 229 MOST ANTICIPATED MOVIES FOR THE REST OF 2014

    Bloody hell, it’s August! Who let that happen?

    LAMBCAST #228 GUILTY PLEASURE MOVIES

    There are times when your own opinion doesn’t necessarily match up with the general population. I don’t mean when you dislike Adam Sandler’s latest trough of tripe but it still tops the box office, I’m talking about the opinions of real people – you know, movie critics. There are films out there that it has been deemed not just unusual, but seemingly implausible to not just like, but love. That’s what...

    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...
