    Lambcast #629 Decade Lookback 2004

    Once more into the “Wayback Machine”, the Lambcast travels to 2004 for a retrospective on films from that year. Everyone had a different reason for the choices that we made, and the Pineapple Kiosk rule only came up twice as a result. None of the Oscar Nominated films managed to get into our discussion, and only two of the top ten box office films made our lists, we had a pretty diverse selection of films to recommend for you....

  • Lambcast #627 The Conversation MOTM March

    Lambcast #627  The Conversation  MOTM March

    There was not much chance that today’s group of guests would be in dispute about the quality of the MOTM for March, “The Conversation” from Francis Ford Coppola. This widely admired, minor classic was sandwiched between the first two “Godfather” films and it was a part of a phenomenal run of movies from the dominant director of the era.

    David Brook takes over hosting, as he was the champion of the...

    Lambcast #626   The Batman

    So, do we really need a new Batman movie? The guests on this week’s show and the Box Office returns all answer in the Affirmative. Director of the Month Matt Reeves has brought us an even darker version of the caped vigilante, who actually plays detective a lot more in this film than any of the previous movies. The stand alone story, new Batman, and the cast of supporting players give us plenty to talk about.

    The Batman...

    Lambcast #625 Predictions for 2022

    So we are two months into the year and we have a lot of movies in front of us. It’s fun to do a little star gazing and speculate on what will hit, miss or flat out explode in our faces. This week the LAMB attempts to shake it’s Magic 8-ball, sort thru some tea leaves. Confident of her grades in Divination at Hogwarts last term, Jeanette Ward was the only soul brave enough to tread this path with Richard this week....

    Lambcast #624 Decade Lookback 1995

    Since introducing this series in the midst of the pandemic, it has become a popular feature on the LAMB, at least when measured by the number of guests clamoring to join the conversation. This week we decided to expand the guest list so Richard is joined by six other Lambs as we explore the film landscape of twenty-seven years ago.

    Everybody had slightly different reasons for choosing the films that they did. Howard Casner went...

    Lambcast #623 “The Quick and the Dead” February MOTM

    All the best birthdays are in February, you know, Washington, Lincoln and Kirkham. Richard got to select the options for the MOTM Poll but the LAMB in it’s collective wisdom got to choose which film would be the final subject. This month we get a Sharon Stone western from 1995. While Stone is the featured star, the movie has a few other actors in it that really become the focus of the discussion.

    “The Quick and the...

    Lambcast #622 Moonfall/Roland Emmerich Lookback

    The Master of Disaster is back with maybe the most preposterous end of the world scenario in his long string of such films. Writer/Producer/Director Roland Emmerich has been entertaining us with outlandish disaster films since 1996 with “Independence Day”. In that film aliens destroy the world, in “Godzilla” a giant iguana takes out the city of New York. Ancient Mayan calendars get it right when the Earth’s core...

    Lambcast #621 January Dumpster Dive

    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...

    Lambcast #620  Meryl Streep Draft Show

    When announcing the Best Actress Award for the 1982 Oscars, Sylvester Stallone called her the “Marvelous Meryl Streep “, it was prophetic in a number of ways. Streep has accumulated 21 Academy Award Nominations and has walked off with three of the little buggers as well. She continues to work in a variety of films and other actors seek out opportunities to play opposite her. Pierce Brosnan famously accepted the role in...

    Lambcast #619  “DragonHeart” MOTM

    The Movie of the Month for January was selected by over forty percent of the voters, apparently they have a nostalgia jones for fantasy films, like the champion of this movie Emily Slade does. Who could blame her? This is a very accessible family style fantasy featuring a CGI Dragon voiced by the mellifluous Sean Connery.

    The CGI artists studied Connery’s face and designed a Dragon which could convey a wider...

    Lambcast #618  2021 Blues

    At the end of 2020, everyone was ready for things to get better, especially in the movie world. Pound for Pound maybe there was a slight improvement, but 2021 was a far cry from the bounceback we were all hoping for. This week, the Lambcast reviews some of the 2021 events/trends/disappointments that make us worry about the film industry and the movies that it produces.

    The plethora (do you even know what that is?)...
