    Gabriel LaBelle as Sammy Fabelman, our Spielberg Character.

    Howard Casner leads the three guests through an elaborate discussion of the new...

    Lambcast #661  Black Panther Wakanda Forever

    Welcome back to the MCU, this is their third film of 2022 and it is likely to be the most successful. Should it be? In addition to the usual discussion, we have a dissenting opinion from a LAMB who had big reservations about the original “Black Panther” movie and chose not to support this one as a result. We happily provide a platform for Nicole Ayers and as you listen, you may see that the issues she presents are largely...

    Lambcast #660  U.S. Marshals   MOTM

    Did you remember that there was a sequel to the 1993 Academy Award Nominated Best Picture “The Fugitive”? A lot of people do not recall that but Jeanette Ward was not one of those, she is laser focused on Wesley Snipes and he stars as the new fugitive in this 1998 film.

    Tommy Lee Jones reprises his Academy Award winning role as Deputy Marshal Sam Gerard and he is as badass as you remember. He brings back his posse...

    Lambcast #658   Black Adam

    So the DCEU means to get down to business and reformat it’s films to integrate more effectively and to break the mold of the bleak CGI fests that have dominated their output so far. Dwayne Johnson has entered the arena with promises that “Black Adam” will be a gamechanger. Delayed twice, this is a highly anticipated storyline which may create a new hierarchy of power among the DC superheroes, but does it fix the deficiencies...

    Lambcast #657  Halloween 2018-2022 Lookback

    The Lambcast can’t get enough of horror films in October, and the horror fans seemingly can’t get enough of Halloween Films featuring Michael Myers and Jamie Leigh Curtis. Director David Gordon Green relaunched the franchise in 2018 with the simply repeated title “Halloween”. Covid intervened and “Halloween Kills” took a little longer to get to us than planned, and “Halloween Ends” arrives one...

    Lambcast #656 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) MOTM

    Horror films from the 1970s are being remade on a regular basis. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been remade twice and there are six other iterations of the film, but it’s hard to top the original. TCM is often cited as one of the most frightening movies ever made, it certainly was shocking, but despite it’s reputation it is surprisingly gore free.

    Lambcast #655   Smile

    If we were all wearing our masks still, like we had to for the last couple of years, this movie would not work. How could we be frightened by someone’s maniacal grin if we can’t even see it? In a way, this film shows how devastating a lack of facial expressions can be (Natalie Portman aside). “Smile” is a psychological horror film that was originally headed straight to streaming, but it has made a fortuitous stop in...

    Lambcast #654   Don’t Worry Darling

    A beautiful blue sky, a desert setting, with mountain peaks in the background and fantastic cars in the driveway. This is the utopia that was promised to Americans at the end of WWII. Is it still the dream that motivates men and women into making foolish choices? We are going to find out on this week’s Lambcast.

    We know something is not right in Victory, the town occupied by all the beautiful young couples that star in the...

    Lambcast #653   Proof of Life  MOTM

    In an overwhelming vote manufactured by the proud champion of this film, the 2000 Russell Crowe/Meg Ryan drama “Proof of Life” was chosen as the September MOTM. The movie is best remembered not for the action scenes, or the political perspective on South American politics, but rather for the brief affair of the two stars which brought to a close the marriage of Ryan to actor Dennis Quaid.

    For the most part, our...

    Lambcast #652   Three Thousand Years of Longing

    This episode comes after the second weekend of release for the film, and not a minute too soon because the genii here is being put back in the bottle by audiences pretty quickly. Our guests this week however were glad to talk about it and we had a wide range of opinions.

    Idris Elba is back after just a week off in a second starring feature, this time with a co-star who is not a lion but who is reliable, Tilda Swinton. In a twist...

    It’s Lambpardy time! Three more contestants are here to battle it out for movie trivia supremacy and a place in the next round of the tournament!
