  • 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

    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

    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...

  • The MOTM for August 2013 will be…

    The MOTM for August 2013 will be…

    This had to have been one of the more diverse groupings of films we’ve had for the MOTM.  True, it’s not as though there were any foreign films or silents or docs, but we had a classic horror flick, a classic noir, a sci-fi thriller, a sports comedy, and whatever Dark City fits into. 

    However, what started as a close race pretty quickly became a blowout, as Dan Heaton’s selection of Double...

  • MOTM/LAMBCAST #171: DEAD ALIVE

    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...

    LAMBcast #159: Roll Your Own Top 5

    First off – if you haven’t yet, go follow The LAMBcast on Twitter!

    Done?  Ok, now, the show…

    Coffee.  Frances McDormand.  Porn.  Inventions.  And corny time travel.  Let it never be said that these types of episodes are run-of-the-mill.  We travel all over the board and back again, exploring the various ways films can be compared to a myriad number of cheeses as well along the way.

    Anyway,...

    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...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #153: <i>Last Year at Marienbad</i>

    I could easily lead off with some joke about how abstract Last Year at Marienbad is or how much I want to play Nim or what those people standing there like mannequins might have been thinking the whole time this film was made, but frankly, I think we did enough of that on the podcast (see below).  Suffice to say, Marienbad is a strange, interesting, boring, mysterious, exciting, beautiful, bizarre film…often times all...
