LAMBCAST: #354 Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately

by Jay Cluitt · December 28, 2016 · Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts, WBWL · No Comments

The holiday season is a busy old time of year for many of us, and here at the Lambcast it’s no exception. However we know our listeners demand content on a weekly basis, so here’s an episode we prepared earlier. It’s the traditional “filler” show of Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately, however as usual it went onto some ludicrous tangents, and proves once again that the greatest film discussions can come from the most unexpected of places.
Jay Cluitt was joined by Kristen Lopez, Howard Casner and Elwood Jones to talk about a French precursor to Home Alone, an awards contender, film noir and a comedy-romance-fantasy war movie, but is none of that piques your interest, you absolutely need to listen for the Rants and Raves, which need to be listened to, by all. Also, there’s a couple of games of Last Lamb Standing.
