    MOTM/LAMBcast #145: Children of Men

    They say the sixth time’s the charm, right?  Proof that perseverance pays off, Ryan Fernand of Lord of the Films submitted Children of Men to the MOTM poll once again for December and it finally paid off.  Then, after all that time, it wasn’t even close, as his choice had more than twice as many votes as the next closest film.  The 2006 sci-fi drama starring Clive Owen was pretty much universally loved by critics and movie...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #140: Licence to Kill

    It seemed only fitting that, after a hard-fought battle against The Princess Bride, the 16th entry in the James Bond series, Licence to Kill, won out in the last MOTM poll.  It turned out to be a film of discovery for several of us on the accompanying LAMBcast – some continued to love it, some not so much, but it’s fair to say we all learned a bit more Bond history: why this film might have been received so...

    The next MOTM will be…


    It was another patented two-horse race for the MOTM.  It seems all of these end up that way, as a handful of films will open up an early lead, but as time goes on, people change votes and/or only vote for one of the top dogs, knowing that votes for the others won’t go anywhere (hey, that sounds like the American political system!).  Anyway, it was a close race between The Princess Bride and Licence to Kill,...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #136: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    [Note: I asked the MOTM Champion Justin if he’d be interested in writing the intro for this post.  Here’s what he delivered.] 

    Every month at the LAMB, we have a poll that establishes our Movie of the Month. The winner is watched and discussed on the LAMBcast by a few of our members. Sometimes the winner that we review together is serious (last month’s silent German film Metropolis),...

    LAMBcast #131: Actor Career Draft – Bruce WIllis

    News flash: unless you’re a character actor with a long filmography or your name happens to be Sam Jackson, odds are good that if you’re selected as the subject of one of these career drafts, we’re gonna make your career look pretty bad.  You wouldn’t think that rattling off 15 movies (much less 30) from a 30-year career without getting to anything too embarrassing would be all that difficult, but clearly, it is, a...

    LAMBcast #130: Franchise look-back: Rocky

    Anyone who’s heard me wax poetic about advice or guidelines or just my personal preferences for podcasts in general knows that, in general, I’m not a fan of superlong podcasts.  I try to keep this show around the hour mark, though I realize that with five participants on just about every show, that’s pretty unrealistic.  I regularly give guest hosts like Nick and Jason a hard time before they record a show since they have...

    LAMBcast #127: Roll Your Own Top 5

    I don’t want to oversell his participation or downplay the involvement of others on the show, but there’s something about the rarity of a Nolahn appearance on the LAMBcast that makes it a must-listen show.  That something is actually probably two big somethings, one being his Steve Honeywell-like epic rants and the second actually being the subject of this show: his ability to make hilarious, off-kilter top five...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #119: An American Werewolf in London

    Released in 1981, An American Werewolf in London was heralded early on for its groundbreaking special effects, which remain the de facto star all these years later.  A simple, stripped-down tale of men and the monsters that they become, it continued writer/director John Landis’ incredible 80s run after Animal House and The Blues Brothers and would lead directly to his working with Michael Jackson on the...

    LAMBcast #116: Franchise look-back: Jurassic Park

    From Steven Spielberg to Joe Johnston, from Jeff Goldblum to Vince Vaughn, from the Park itself to San Diego (thank god that music was there the whole time, right?) – it’s another franchise look-back here on the LAMBcast.  Dan Heaton sat in the host chair for the first time, leading the discussion of the trilogy, and was joined by Fogs, Lindsay, Mike and Ryan.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants of the Week
    * Raves of the...

    LAMBcast #110: The Hunger Games

     

    Obviously, The Hunger Games needs way more catchphrases, because I’d like to start off this little summary with one of them, but there’s really only one, and it’s way overused as it is.  So I suppose I’ll just say, “I volunteer as, uh, host of the LAMBcast!”

    Anyway, I was joined by Nick, Rachel and Dan as we dissected the blockbuster literary adaptation, from the casting to the...

    LAMBcast #105: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Nick oversees one of our favorite shows to do, and as it turns out, just about everyone was on the same page (wait’ll you get to the Rants section). Also on hand were Steve, Dan Heaton, Stevee (making a return to the show after some time off) and first-time LAMBcaster Jessica of The Velvet Cafe, making this the most international show we’ve had to date, with LAMBs from three continents present and accounted for. I look forward to...

    LAMBcast #104: 2012 Academy Award Predictions

    Once again, we here at the LAMBcast pull out our crystal balls and attempt to predict the winners for the upcoming Oscars. Or at least some of them. Rather than cycle through all 24 categories, we cherry-picked 10 of the big ones to prognosticate, while sprinkling in our commentary on snubs (like, say…Drive?) and thoughts on the production and nomination process along the way. On hand was your host Dylan, as well as LAMBcast regulars...
