The Lambcast did not do many shows in the last two months of the year that were devoted to individual films. December is the spot where most of the Oscar Bait ends up and wannabe blockbusters and family entertainment go to live or die.
We have attempted the near impossible, collectively covering 14 new releases in a single show. Some of the guests saw everything and at least one person bothered wit “Matrix Resurrections”.
We discussed films from Aaron Sorkin, Steven Spielberg, Paul Thomas Anderson, Guillermo del Toro, and a host of other directors. We looked at some Foreign Language contenders in the Oscar race. Ansel Elgort became a piñata for several guests and we missed a few late season arrivals.
There was a little bit of Oscar forecasting and some discussion of the box office, but not a lot. Andrew Garfield and Benedict Cumberbatch came in for some judgement on their American accents, and no one saw “Sing 2”.
