    LAMBCAST #236 MOVIES FROM OUR BIRTH YEARS

    It’d time for another Top 5 List, but instead of the usual Roll Your Own method (wherein everyone does a completely differently themed list) this time we’re all taking the same idea – movies released in the year we were born. Fortunately, everyone on the show was born in a different year, so prepare to hear us tackle a great deal of movies from every genre imaginable.

    Host and baby of the group Jay Cluitt was...

    The winner of the International Character Actor Career Draft is…

    A few weeks ago we held a draft over on the Lambcast, wherein Lackey, Dylan, DJ, Dan and myself all attempted to create the greatest team of character actors from outside of North America. We the left it up to you to vote for the best team. Well, the results are in, the votes have been counted, and the winner is….

    Dan Heaton of Public Transportation Snob, making it two wins in a row for Dan, the current undisputed champion of the...

    LAMBCAST #223 CHARACTER ACTOR DRAFT – INTERNATIONAL EDITION

    Character Actors! I don’t know about you, but I love ‘em, hence why back in Episode #187 we got together and drafted a bunch of them from North America. Well, now it’s time to do it again, this time picking from the rest of the world.

    Host Jay Cluitt was joined by Dylan Fields, Daniel Lackey, DJ Valentine and returning champion Dan Heaton to debate whether Ben Kingsley, Timothy Dalton and Guy Pearce can be...

    LAMBCAST #201: TIMECOP MOTM


    Jean Claude Van Damme! Time travelling! Kicking things! This month’s Movie of the Month champion is not what you’d necessarily call a “good” film, but it certainly provoked an entertaining discussion covering the career of JCVD, the ramifications of time travel and whether or not the same matter can share the same space (it can… but it can’t).

    THE MOTM FOR JANUARY 2014 WILL BE…

    Once again, the MOTM feature proves that all good things come to those who wait.  Of course, your definition of “good things” may differ from someone else’s.  Namely, Dan Heaton’s, whose championing of Timecop has now finally paid off with its selection as the MOTM, beating out Joel’s selection of Runaway Train.  (Apparently, Joel is persona non grata when it comes to MOTM film selections,...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #196: COCKTAIL

    I don’t know if it’s a slight against the film or not, but this is the entirety of the IMDb summary of our most recent Movie of the Month, Cocktail:

    A talented New York bartender takes a job at a bar in Jamaica and falls in love.

    If you’re a normal movie blogger at all, you’re probably wondering why and how this film came to be the Movie of the Month.  For the...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #192: WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP

    Pretty sure I haven’t seen an IMDb summary recently that makes the film it’s talking about sound much worse than this one: 

    Billy and Sydney think they’re the best basketball hustlers in town, so when they join forces, nothing can stop them, except each other. To add to their problems, Billy owes money and is being chased by a pair of gangster types.

    White Men Can’t Jump,...

  • WHO WON THE CHARACTER ACTOR DRAFT?

    WHO WON THE CHARACTER ACTOR DRAFT?

    Recently on the LAMBcast, we had a very intricate, duly-researched, overly complex fantasy draft involving character actors (North American only).  You’ve had some time to listen to and digest the amazing choices that Jay, Dan, Nick P. and myself made, and now it’s time to separate the Buscemis from the Turturros (well, except that neither was deemed draftable on the show – have a listen to find out why).  Anyway,...

    LAMBCAST #187: CHARACTER ACTOR DRAFT (#1 – N. AMERICA)

    The insanity of the Nic Cage Draft has finally left us, so we return to our regular “draft” programming, taking a left turn away from choosing the films of a particular star and instead choosing our favorite character actors.  Now, as I mention a number of times on the show, doing such a category was very tricky, what with attempting to define who belongs in that category (are they still there?, etc.).  So what did we do?  Made...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #184: DEMOLITION MAN

    Is it a silly action flick with a quasi-serious message or a serious action flick made silly by two decades of aged cheese?  Is it really from 1993 or is it the last 80s film?  Is it live or is it Memorex?  These questions and many, many more surround the 1993 Stallone and Snipes showdown Demolition Man, a film that deals with the pain of being aware of the passage of 40 years whilst being able to experience nothing but that...

    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 #178: DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE – RICHARD LINKLATER

    Believe it or not, it’s been over 80 episodes since our last Director Retrospective (we really need to do these more often).  That last one was for Woody Allen on episode 94.  When the idea came up/was rejuvenated to do another one, I had a very specific set of criteria I was looking for the director to fit, and Richard Linklater was one of the very few – if not the only one – that could have fit the bill. 

    I...
