    LAMBCAST #497 THE DEVILS MOTM

    It’s Movie of the Month time, and for September that movie is Ken Russell’s The Devils from 1971.

    With Jay still on vacation Richard remained in the hosting chair and was joined by the film’s champion, Zoe, along with Will and Howard to discuss this very religious and unsurprisingly divisive film that features far more stuffed crocodiles than you may initially expect.

    03:26 Zoe ranks the...

    LAMBCAST #471 SILVERADO MOTM

    It’d be understandable if you thought you were experiencing deja vu, as it’s movie of the month time, we’re talking about a western, and there’s a Kirkham at the helm of the show’s feature discussion, but whilst there are some similarities between Silverado and Tombstone, this is a different (and potentially better?) film in its own right.

    Amanda Kirkham is once again in charge of...

    LAMBCAST #467 2019 OSCAR PREDICTIONS

    The awards season is almost over, so that can mean only one thing – it’s time for the Lambcast’s Oscar predictions show!

    Jay was unable to host, Richard didn’t really want to and Kevin Hart turned down the offer, so MovieRob stepped in to host his first ever Lambcast proper, after helming the Acting School shows for almost two years. He was joined by Richard, Vern, Courtney and Howard to make their...

    LAMBCAST #457: DEBATE – WHAT’S THE BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE?

    You may have noticed on the LAMB site recently we’ve been trying to determine what is definitively the best Christmas movie, and the topic seems to have spilled over onto the Lambcast as well.

    Jay and Richard were joined by Howard, Simon and Todd to tackle the daunting task of taking the list of all the Christmas movies ever made and narrowing it down to just one winner. Who won? Who got banished to the North Pole?...

    LAMBCAST #448: THE HAUNTING MOTM

    It’s time for the some horror over on the Lambcast!

    Traditionally the run up to Halloween is dedicated to horror films and franchise here at the LAMB, and that’s no different this year with our horror-themed Movie of the Month. This time around the original 1963 version of The Haunting is our focus, with its champion Howard Casner taking his first seat in the MOTM host chair. He’s joined by Sean, Tony,...

    LAMBCAST #447: A STAR IS BORN REMAKE-A-PALOOZA

    Romance! Addiction! Swimming! These films truly have everything, and we’re here to talk about it.

    Jay’s ambivalence left Richard in the hosting seat to discuss the latest version of A Star is Born, along with the three (or four) previous iterations of the story. Some are great, others feature Gary Busey.

    Also on tap: Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week and the most relevant game of Last Lamb Standing...

    The Movie of the Month for October 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It’s October, which means this month’s MOTM is a horror pick, and damn if there weren’t some horrific choices in the poll this month. This was a tighly-run and ever-changing race, with some last-ditch surges, Twitter involvements from relevant film-makers and an overhanging threat that we’d end up talking about Tusk. Fortunately that...

    LAMBCAST #445: WHATCHA BEEN WATCHIN LATELY?

    Honestly, I’m gone for a couple of shows and the show’s structure gets thrown right out the window.

    Traditionally on a Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately episode we’ll have some guests on and everyone will talk about one film they’ve seen recently. Not today! No, with Jay still away, Richard took sole hosting duties and let Cameron, Todd, David and Howard run amok, listing up to twelve films each, plus way...

    LAMBCAST #441: BRING A DISCUSSION TOPIC

    What do you do when you host a podcast, but there are no big movie releases and no obvious tie-ins to current events? It’s simple, you do a show on pretty much anything, and we call them Bring A Discussion Topics.

    Whilst Jay was off gallivanting around Wales, Richard stepped into the hosting chair and was joined by Audrey, Howard, Todd and Vern to cover every aspect of the movie-loving experience, from theatres to...

    LAMBCAST #430: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION MOTM

    The latest Movie of the Month show is here! It’s been dragged through a river of shit and come out clean(ish) the other side. That’s right, this month is all about The Shawshank Redemption.

    Freshly-impounded co-host Richard Kirkham took the lead, and was joined by the film’s champion, Rob, along with Damien and Howard. And before go ahead and dismiss the show off hand as being a full-on love-in and...
