    Lambcast #727   Decade Lookback 1967

    The Summer of Love was also a year of change in the movie business. The Hollywood Production code was breathing it’s last breath, and the old guard of Hollywood was making way for the future. European films directed at the general American audience were being produced by the truckload, and French Directors were influencing American movies in more than one way.

    So what do our guests this week talk about? Not “The...

    Lambcast #727  “Spoiler Alert!”

    Everyone knows that spoilers are irritating to film fans who have not yet seen the movie. Here on the LAMBcast however, most of us have seen these movies so we are not afraid to talk about them, in particular the key elements that might spoil the movie for you. This week’s episode is the antithesis of what we usually try to do here. We are not coy about giving away the ending of a movie, a plot twist or two, or revealing the presence of...

    Vote for the April Movie of the Month Franchise

    The month of April is when we celebrate a franchise in the Movie of the Month Episodes. While there are some movies that deserved a franchise and never got a sequel (The Nice Guys, Dredd and The Shadow could still happen if we wish hard enough), there are plenty of film series where we might wonder, “How did this happen?”

    We have four film franchises that await your decision, which one will live on as a MOTM Lamb Legend?...

    Lambcast #726  Ghostbusters Frozen Empire

    There are now five films in the “Ghostbusters” Franchise (that is if you count the 2016 film which is widely dismissed by fans) and the newest one hit theaters this last week. The new cast from “Ghostbusters Afterlife” have moved back to New York City and they have taken up the family business, but not without some complications. 

    This week our cast of Lambs does some busting of their own, questioning...

    Lambcast #725  The Neon Demon- March MOTM

    The Vern’s choice for Movie of the Month was the winner for March, and he hosted the show on 2016’s “The Neon Demon”. Those of you longtime listeners of the Lambcast know that The Vern enjoys a divisive movie conversation, and that’s exactly what we got with this week’s show. Matthew Simpson from the Awesome Friday Podcast, and James Wilson from Blogging by Cinema Light, joined us for an examination of...

    The Movie of the Month for March 2024 is…

    There were four films submitted for MOTM for March, and everyone got some votes. A couple of the films had been talked about on the show, but that was not enough to put them over the top. It takes a dedicated LAMB, willing to use Social Media, to get the kind of support that turned the vote from a close contest to a run-away victory.

    Congratulations to The Vern of Cinema Recall, his strategy led to a result that will allow him to...

    Welcome back to Arrakis, the one planet in the Universe that supplies the spice mélange, which allows interstellar travel. It’s only other significant export is jihad, and this week the guests on the show spend some time talking about the roots of that second product. Oh, we of course talk about the movie as well, a film that seems to be living up to everyone’s very high expectations.

    Lambcast #723  The King of Comedy-February MOTM

    This month’s selection as MOTM came from a list of Blind Spots submitted by the host. A Martin Scorsese flop from 1983, which has grown in stature over the years, “The King of Comedy” starring Robert DeNiro. DeNiro is the frustrated, Rupert Pupkin, obsessed with becoming a comedy great. However, when he confronts his idol, talk show host Jerry Langford, with a plea to perform on Jerry’s show, he is only given the...

    Lambcast #722  Decade Lookback 1991

    Those of you old enough to remember the year 1991, or at least, to have watched the videotapes from that year, will enjoy soaking up some nostalgia vibes this week. Everyone was asked to bring five movies to the show this episode and none of them were films Nominated for Best Picture by the Academy. In fact, you could almost consider this the anti-Oscar show of 1991. The guests this week were more interested in their own opinions than anyone...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2024 is…

    The Movie of the Month Winner was selected from a list of seven, submitted by LAMBcast host Richard Kirkham in recognition of the month of his birth. All of the films were Blind Spots for your host and new Shepard, so whatever won was going to be something new for the show, even if the film was sixty years old.

    Two films that were submitted received no votes, but the race between the top two films was close until the end. The Movie...
