In the lull before all the Summer Box Office Competition starts, the Lambcast this week takes an opportunity to check in on what our guests have been watching, anywhere. We ended up with some films that are in theaters currently and some movies that were in theaters 90 years ago. Once again, the Criterion Channel should be paying us ad fees for the referrals we are providing.
James Wilson, Howard Casner and Todd Liebenow join Richard is self disclosing our streaming habits, DVD collections and what we have been doing in movie theaters this week.
We get a combination of Pre-Code films, mid-century classics and two movies that you can see in theaters right now. That’s pretty good diversity for a group of Lambs that may not be all that diverse themselves.
Comedy Westerns, 1930s Science Fiction and an Italian film about impotence. We seem able to find something different for sure
Todd apparently has a thing for Walter Brennan, and we knew that Howard was going to have at least one foreign language film on his list. Do any of you remember “Things to Come” on a previous edition of this format? Richard had a case of deja vu when this came up.
Laurel and Hardy, Ken Burns, another foreign language film and a film that is just foreign to human experience. That’s how we roll in the third round of choices.
We finish off the show this week with Rants/Raves/ and Reviews, but as usual, James refuses to follow the rules because he likes questions. So there are a range of answers to his query.
Round One 3:30
Round Two 25:40
Round Three 40:05
Rants/Raves/Reviews and James’ question 1:09:00
