    As I mention during the show (and for anyone that was paying attention over at the Forums), this episode was initially intended to be split in two.  After all, we cover an insane nine (!) films in it.  However, life found a way to get in the way and we were forced to do it all in one monstrous ep.  So you ought to know that you’re in for a long ride, though considering the number of films discussed, I think we were pretty...

    This episode is being posted later than was planned, so let’s get right to it:

    Originally, we’d planned to split our Franchise Look-back on the Disney Renaissance films (nine of them!) into two episodes.  Unfortunately, scheduling issues forced us to combine them both into one monstrous episode (coming next week).  As such, we had a free week and a spontaneous topic arise within the last couple days prior to the recording...

    Now entering the studio are today’s contestants…

    First up is the reigning new champion, Nick Powell.  The master of trivia took down the prior five-time champ (um, me) last time, and is now challenged by his podcast co-host The Vern, as well as his longtime trivia nemesis Kristen.   Can he make it a repeat, or will his stay at the top be short-lived?

    The MOTM for May 2013 will be…

    Not sure where the debate from last month went when it came to the choices for this MOTM.  Sure, none of these are quite as beloved as The Princess Bride, but I think the central argument is still there.  On the surface, we have a polished, widely seen, mostly-regarded-as-a-classic film in American Psycho (long a film blogger favorite) versus three less-loved, less-widely known films in White Men Can’t Jump,...

  • MOTM/LAMBcast #161: The Princess Bride

    MOTM/LAMBcast #161: <i>The Princess Bride</i>

    It was a battle for the ages, and it led to a film containing a fair few battles eing the winner.  Yes, The Princess Bride took down Primer, this renewing the debate over what should and shouldn’t be a Movie of the Month yet again.  Should it shine a light on lesser-known/lesser-seen gems that slipped through the cracks or should it feature timeless classics?  If you ask me, the answer leans towards the former but...

    LAMBcast #160: Bring Your Own Discussion Topic

    First off – if you haven’t yet, go follow The LAMBcast on Twitter!

    What’s better than one feature discussion?  How about four of ‘em?  

    It’s only took about three years, but I think it’s safe to say that we’ve got a nice stable of rotating general show outlines (Whatcha Been Watching Lately?, Roll Your Own Top 5, Franchise Look-Backs, etc), and Bring Your Own Discussion Topic is just one of...

    LAMBcast #159: Roll Your Own Top 5

    First off – if you haven’t yet, go follow The LAMBcast on Twitter!

    Done?  Ok, now, the show…

    Coffee.  Frances McDormand.  Porn.  Inventions.  And corny time travel.  Let it never be said that these types of episodes are run-of-the-mill.  We travel all over the board and back again, exploring the various ways films can be compared to a myriad number of cheeses as well along the way.

    The MOTM for April 2013 will be…

    It was billed as an epic showdown and, for the most part, it turned out that way.  Two potential Champions have each been throwing out a certain film for several months now, so we decided to do something unique for the MOTM poll.  Jason Soto of Your Face has been tossing out Primer and Nick Powell of The Cinematic Katzenjammer has been throwing out The Princess Bride.  The idea was this:  A Loser Goes Home...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #158: <i>Identity</i>

    I don’t want to say that MOTM poll winner Justin (of Man, I Love Films) did anything improper to not only win the poll but destroy the competition (especially since he’s a friend of mine and writes for my site), but let’s just say that the reaction to his choice of film and the amount of reactions from LAMB members didn’t exactly substantiate the pick.  And yet, it’s not as though we on the LAMBcast came up...

    LAMBcast #157: Get to Know Your LAMBcasters

    It was just a happy coincidence and/or poor (great?) planning that this show came not only just a week after the Vegas meetup episode, but also happened to feature three people (myself, Jason, and Lindsay) that were there for the meetup.  So the three of us got to know each other a bit more, but to make it more interesting, we were also joined by Nick P. and Jay.  This was an unorthodox show compared to our usual fare, where we’re...

    LAMBcast #156: LAMBs in Vegas!

    To say that this is a special episode of the LAMBcast would be one of the larger understatements that I could make in this space.  It’s also one of the more unconventional shows we’ve had.

    I really can’t recall at the moment whose idea it was to have a LAMB meetup in Las Vegas, but I do know that once the idea was in my head (well over a year ago), I ran with it and ran hard.  Very quickly, the notion to hold it...
