Lambcast #621 January Dumpster Dive

by Richard Kirkham · January 31, 2022 · Featured, LAMBcast · No Comments

Most of the flock is probably aware of January’s reputation as the waste disposal site for the film studios. This week on the podcast we take a look at the reasons that is accepted as fact and the examples that both prove it and undermine the claim.

Plenty of movies have been successfully released in the first month of the year, but that doesn’t mean they should have been allowed out. Tyler Howat and Todd Liebenow join Richard to go “Dumpster Diving” and we find some treats along with the dregs. Do you remember “Dolittle”, “Supernova”, “Season of the Witch” or “I, Frankenstein”? If you do, you will probably have nightmares.

There are a lot of bad movies that should be left on the dumping grounds. It is however a myth that all January releases are bad, there are plenty of films you should look for among the debris and we have a few we want to to recycle.  After all, George Lucas did so in January 1997

We have Rants/Raves and Reviews to keep you entertained as well.
