Lambscores: Blockers, Chappaquiddick, A Quiet Place

by Jay Cluitt · May 4, 2018 · Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

Every so often when I’m compiling these weekly posts I’ll come across an apparently widely released movie starring actual famous people and with a half-decent critical score, but which I’ve never once heard of. Such is the case this week with Chappaquiddick. Apparently it had a trailer, stars Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Kate Mara and Bruce Dern, and is at least watchable, but this also could be an incredibly elaborate ruse to trick me into posting about a fictitious movie. Who knows? Either way, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it, as well as A Quiet Place and Blockers:

If you want to get involved, here’s how LAMBScores work: Over in the LAMB Forums there’s a sub-board called LAMBScores. If you’ve written a review or recorded a podcast on a new release, find (or create) the thread there, and leave a link to your review, along with your site name and a score out of 5. Three weeks after the film has received a wide release the reviews will be collated and posted here, as long as there are at least five.
