  • LAMBCAST #199: DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE – THE COENS

    LAMBCAST #199: DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE – THE COENS

    If it seems as though we just keep getting more and more ambitious with these lookbacks/retrospectives…well, that’s pretty much true.  That said, we’re not insane.  The Coen Brothers had 15 films in their filmography prior to Inside Llewyn Davis; as much as we might have liked to watch all 15, that would make for at least a four-hour podcast, to say nothing of the time involved in watching/rewatching all of them...

    LAMBcast #137: Argo

    We didn’t have a LAMBcast on the schedule for last weekend, but as you may or may not know, Tom Clift made his way from Australia about six weeks ago to North America and has been catching up with LAMBs and other movie bloggers all over this continent ever since.  Earlier this week, he made his way to Phoenix to sleep on my couch for a few days, and Argo had been a tentatively scheduled show once upon a time, and we’d...

    LAMBcast #125: The Dark Knight Rises

    I feel dumb typing anything here, other than the names of the show participants.  For the quasquicentennial episode of the LAMBcast, we talked about the only movie anyone is talking about at the moment.  You might have seen it.  It being the biggest movie of the year, the show runs a bit longer than I usually like, but I figured that it wasn’t every week that the end of one of the best trilogies comes to town.  On hand for the...

    PLUG: Tom Clift in North America

    Tom Clift here, from Melbourne, Australia. You may know me at the blogger behind Reviews by Tom, the host of “Double Feature Friday” at Man I Love Films, or as an occasional voice on the LAMBcast.  After three years of blogging, tweeting and podcasting at your from the other side of the world, I’m excited to announce that this year I’ll finally be making the trip to Canada and the USA, between September 5th and...

    LAMBcast #112: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    My apologies to Jessica, Tom, Steve, and Nick – they’ve probably almost forgotten that we even recorded this episode, it feels so long since we did it (if some of the Rants or Raves seem a bit outdated, now you know why).  Anyway, our feature discussion is one that can’t grow moldy, as we each took a look back at a recent viewing that we wished to discuss.  On top of that, we present you with one of the lengthier and more...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #111: Inglourious Basterds

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #111: Inglourious Basterds

    Time for me to eat crow.  From the onset, I wasn’t such a big fan of Inglourious Basterds as a choice for the Movie of the Month – it seeming to be a too recent and too popular film for my particular MOTM tastes.  In the end, the die-hard battle between it and Citizen Kane had me more than supporting it as the eventual choice, and I couldn’t have been more wrong about my preconceptions of it being chosen. ...

    LAMBcast #107: Franchise look-back: Alien

    For the 107th episode, we take a step in a new direction and open up a new recurring series for the show, in which we take a look at a popular series from film history.  Over at the LAMB Forums, the participants in the show voted from a number of franchises and the winner was the Alien series.  On hand for the show was host Dylan as well as Nick, Tom, Fogs and newcomer Mark of Green People Soup.

    To commemorate this somewhat...

    PLUG: Movie Reviews by Tom Clift

    Greetings all,

    Tom Clift here. I just want to invite all LAMB members to particpate in the new weekly game I’ve started on my blog, entitled DOUBLE FEATURE FRIDAY, where I challenge YOU to pair the weeks releases with your favourite older or classic films.

    Each week I’ll name the new theatrical releases as well as a few other bonus picks of my choice. Your job is to comment on what other movie you’d like to screen in a...

  • LAMBcast #81: Fall/Winter Preview (aka Our Top 5s for the Rest of the Year)

    LAMBcast #81: Fall/Winter Preview (aka Our Top 5s for the Rest of the Year)

    So many films, so little time. There was some worry early on that there would be overlap with a lot of our individual top fives, but that proved not to really be the case, as there’s a wide array of interesting flicks coming down the pike in the next few months. So many films that (spoiler alert!) not a single person chose either of Spielberg’s flicks or Scorsese’s kids’ movie. And to top it all off, we had another...

    PLUG: Movie Reviews by Tom Clift

    2011 marks two very exciting anniversaries for the Melbourne International Film Festival. Firstly, it is the festivals sixtieth birthday. Secondly, and perhaps more excitingly, it is the first year that I have been able to attend!

    From now until August 7th, I will be covering the festival both at my blog Movie Reviews by Tom Clift (http://reviewsbytom.blogspot.com) as well as at another Australian based LAMB blog: Cut Print Review...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #76: The Third Man

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #76: The Third Man

    Veteran LAMBcaster James was pushing hard for The Third Man to be the next MOTM for a few months now, and he finally got his way. The 1949 drama starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles is regularly included on lists of the best noir films and was voted in 1999 as the best British film of the 20th century by the BFI.

    For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:
    “An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly...

    LAMBcast #73: The LAMMY-nominated Podcasts Roast

    It’s funny – I think I usually refer to this show as the “homage” or “tribute show” to the LAMMY-nominated podcasts, but let’s be honest – it’s more like a roast, since we’re less about singing praises (just this once) and more about having fun with the shows. Offensive? Perhaps, but as I say in the show, we’re lovers of these podcasts and are doing this all in good fun, so...
