by Shane Slater · January 25, 2013 · Featured, LAMBscores · 7 Comments

In this edition of the LAMBScores we have 4 new releases for you – The Impossible, Texas Chainsaw 3D, Promised Land and Not Fade Away. It seemed to be a slow week, with only The Impossible seeming to spark much interest among the LAMB members. Find out what your fellow lammies thought of Juan Antonio Bayona’s heartwrenching film, in addition to the other smaller releases.

LAMB Bites:
The Cinematic Spectacle:As ‘true story’ movies go, it’s a spectacular effort, and one of the genre’s most moving ones.”
At The Back: “Too much heart string pulling and emphasis on a ruined holiday rather than natural disaster.”
Sketchy Details: “Torture porn exists and it comes by way of a now Academy Award-nominated big budget drama.”

    Can someone please tell me when the cutoffs for Les Miserables, Zero Dark Thirty, and Django Unchained are? You can’t even read the forums without applying, confirming, then waiting for an admin to give you to go ahead. I’ve been waiting several days on the last step and still no final approval.

  2. Squasher88 says:

    Les Miz and Django Unchained have already been posted. The cutoff for Zero Dark Thirty is February 1st.

    @Joel – Thanks. I am now able to read the forums and to post. I just added my Zero Dark Thirty link.

    @Dylan and Squasher88 – Thanks for the info. I thought I had checked back through the last couple of Lambscore posts, but I must have missed those. I don’t often review brand new movies, so when I started my reviews of the Oscar Best Picture nominees I figured I’d be able to contribute a few of them here. I now see from reading the forum that the window from movie release to Lambscore cutoff has been shortened since I last was able to contribute.
