  • LAMBcast #146: Franchise Look-back: A Nightmare on Elm Street

    LAMBcast #146: Franchise Look-back: A Nightmare on Elm Street

    As I mention during the show, the next time we do a franchise look-back, we’re scaling back.  From our humble beginnings with Alien and Jurassic Park, we’ve grown to cover six films with the last look-back in Rocky, and now a whopping seven films (which could have potentially been nine had I not capped us at New Nightmare) with an in-depth look at the Elm Street series.  In...

    LAMBcast #144: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Well, this took forever for me to get around to posting, for no good reason.  My apologies to the participants.  Thankfully, this being a top 5 episode, it’s timeless (or something). 

    Anyway, Nick, Kristen, Todd and Dylan got together for the latest edition of this LAMBcast favorite, in which we each came to the table with our own unique top 5 list.  This time, it varied from family horror-dramas to interestingly quirky...

    LAMBcast #143: Bring a Discussion Topic

    What’s better than one feature discussion?  How about five of ‘em?  We revisited something done a few months back (to successful results, I’d say) with “Bring A Discussion Topic,” in which each LAMBcaster comes to the table with a question or pressing matter to them.  We then spend a few minutes discussing each item before moving on to the next, giving a good variety of thoughts to the show, with the added...

    LAMBcast #138: Seven Psychopaths

    Martin McDonagh kind of caught cinephiles off-guard with his first feature film, In Bruges, the Colin Farrell-Brendan Gleeson-starring crime action comedy (fun fact: nearly every film on IMDB lists those genres).  It served as a career renaissance of sorts for Farrell, so their re-teaming for another crime action comedy – this time with an enhanced cast – certainly had many of us foaming at the...

    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), sometimes...

    LAMBcast #135: Looper

    I’m not sure if you’re aware of this or not, but we record the LAMBcast (usually) about a week before it gets posted.  You ought to know where I’m going with this…that’s right – merely by listening, you are traveling back in time.  Back to an era before you had even considered listening to it because you didn’t even know when it was going to be posted!  Meanwhile, back when we recorded it, we had...

    LAMBcast #134: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Sometimes we play serious games (LAMBpardy).  Sometime we get serious with our Movies of the Month.  Sometimes we get goofy with things like actor’s career drafts.  And sometimes we just like to talk about what we’ve been watching lately.  This is one of those times, as I was joined by Nick, Todd, and Max to go over some of our recent viewings.

    Also on tap:

    MOTM/LAMBcast #132: Metropolis

    Can I just say that I love the eclectic group of films that have been chosen as the Movies of the Month by all the voters out there since we rejuvenated the MOTM feature in March of last year?  We’ve had critically-acclaimed films like Inglourious Basterds and The Shining, we’ve had cult films like The Evil Dead and Bronson, we’ve had foreign films (Oldboy, The Third Man), a...

    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...
