    LAMBCAST #506 EYES WIDE SHUT MOTM

    It’s the LAMB’s 100th Movie of the Month! And the 3rd MOTM winner directed by Stanley Kubrick! And the 1st to feature an underground New York sex party (I think).

    Nick Rehak takes the MOTM champion chair for the first time to host the discussion of Kubrick’s final film, and he was joined by Jay, Jess and Chris to delve through the film’s seedy underbelly, Nicole Kidman’s career and Tom...

    LAMBCAST #488 DROP DEAD GORGEOUS MOTM

    Jesus loves winners, and that means he must be a fan of Drop Dead Gorgeous, the wearer of July’s Movie of the Month tiara and sash, so let’s talk about it!

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Doug, as well as Sean and newcomer Jon to discuss why Drop Dead Gorgeous was a critical and commercial failure, why it absolutely should not have been, plus lots of comparisons to the far...

It’s a head-to-head, single elimination tournament, so whichever film wins today moves onto the next round. However, here is not...

    LAMBCAST #451: THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER MOTM

    Tension! Heated debates! Outright arguments! Yes, they’re all in the film, but they’re also all in this week’s podcast!

    Jay and Richard were joined by Simon, Will and Chris to discuss November’s Movie of the Month, The Hunt For Red October, which was a frequently-viewed classic for most, but a first-time watch for our usual host. Simon commandeered the helm for his first MOTM victory and leading...

    LAMBCAST #443 SHOWGIRLS MOTM

    You know what happens when Vern submits a film for Movie of the Month? We end up talking about Showgirls.

    After Howard the Duck, Jay basically vowed to never let Vern host a MOTM show again, yet somehow this happened, so in protest Jay isn’t here this week and Richard reluctantly took the hosting reigns to try and wrangle Vern, Chris and Doug towards a sensible discussion of a movie that begs the...

    LAMBCAST #419: AVA DUVERNAY DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE

    We’ve held many director retrospectives on the Lambcast but, somewhat unforgivably, we’ve never covered a female director. Well all that changes today, because this week’s show is dedicated to the works of Ava DuVernay.

    To celebrate the release of her latest film, A Wrinkle In Time, Jay was joined by Audrey, Rebecca, Chris and Cameron to look at her documentaries and feature films, half of which are...

    LAMBCAST #412: TWELVE MONKEYS MOTM

    I think at this point we can definitively say that if you want to win a Movie of the Month poll, your best bet is to submit a time travel movie (other than Primer of course).

    Chris Staron, on his first MOTM attempt, claimed victory and hosted the discussion on Terry Gilliam’s post-apocalyptic time travel film, and was joined by Jess Manzo, Sean Homrig, Robert Zerbe and Jay, making this another episode of Jay...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    The votes are in for the next Movie of the Month. It was a close call this month, with four movies all tied for first place for a long time, but a last minute run took two ahead of the pack, leaving the next winner to take the pole position by just one vote. So, for February 2018 the movie of the month is… Twelve Monkeys.…
