    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...

    PLUG: The Starving Artists and Other Stories by Howard Casner

    This is a plug for a new book by Howard Casner from Rantings and Ravings, a LAMB member and regular contributor to this site:

    It is available from Amazon at http://ow.ly/yTMD30l5qiK. And until noon, Monday, 7/30, the price is a mere $0.99, that’s right,...

    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...

    LAMBCAST #427: DEADPOOL 2

    Did you think the Deadpool films were just extremely violent comedies with a far higher ratio of butt jokes per minute (BJpM) than most other movies? Well here at the Lambcast we know there’s far more to it than that.

    Jay was joined by Kristen, Howard, Cameron and Darren to really dig into the second instalment starring the merc with a mouth, as we cover female archetypes, pansexuality and who knows what...

    The Oscars are just around the corner, only a couple of days away, so it must be time for our Oscar predictions show!

    Jay was joined by Vern, Howard, Rob and Justin to predict the bigger – and some of the smaller – awards for this Sunday’s ceremony.

    Happy New Year everybody! Welcome to 2018, and what better way could there be to ring in the new year than by celebrating the best movies from the last one?
