Lambscores: Hereditary, Hotel Artemis, Ocean’s 8

by Jay Cluitt · July 6, 2018 · Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

2018 is proving to be quite a good year for movies – so far at least. We’re not even halfway through the year’s Lambscores and we’ve already had eight movies with a collated score of at least 4/5! Joining those ranks this week is Hereditary, which at least one of our members described as the scariest film he’s ever seen, which is fairly high on the list of reasons why I’ve yet to see it. I also haven’t seen Hotel Artemis, but am greatly looking forward to what sounds like this year’s answer to Free Fire. I have however seen Ocean’s 8, and the fact that it’s been scored slightly higher than Hotel Artemis means that maybe I should be less excited to see the latter as I wasn’t a huge fan of the former, but many of our community disagree, and what do I know anyway?

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.
