The Movie of the Month for January 2018 is…

The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!


There have been a few exceptions, but traditionally – an unintentionally – the Movie Of The Month for January is often a film not widely regarded as being critically, um, good. Whether that is the case for January 2018 is yet to be determined, but for now let’s say that if the film turns out to be terrible, I for one won’t be all that surprised. That’s because the movie of the month for January 2018 is… Ishtar.

Congratulations go to Richard from Kirkham A Movie A Day for successfully championing Ishtar to victory. As such he also gets the opportunity to host the upcoming Lambcast show devoted to it.  On the day that show is posted, here on the LAMB site you’ll also find links from the rest of the LAMB community dedicated to the film. If you have any reviews, features or podcasts about Ishtar, send a link to Jay on jaycluitt(at) by January 8th.

Here are the results of this month’s poll:

Kirkham A Movie A Day will be ineligible to champion a MOTM contender for the next three months. MovieRob still has two months of ineligibility left. Journeys in Classic Film will be ineligible for one more month. Vern’s Video Vortex is now eligible again.

If you would like to submit a film for February’s Movie of the Month, get in touch!
