    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! We were a little pressed for time on this recording so it gets a bit more frantic towards the end than we’re used to, but it’s still a fully-functioning game of Lambpardy!

    This month the...

    Lambcast #651  Decade Lookback 1973

    If you want to hear five Lambs who are enthusiastic about every movie they talk about, this is the show for you. 1973 had so many films that were of such high quality, that there was only one overlap film between the five Lambs and their five films each.

    The decade lookback episodes have become very popular here on the Lambcast, and this show illustrates why. Every guest chooses their own criteria for selecting their five films,...

    Lambcast #650   Beast

    The end of the summer brings us a man vs. nature film, and a LAMB community that is apparently on vacation somewhere. Only Lisa Leaheey was willing to go on safari with Richard this week, but we bagged a big cat and have the trophy ready to display here on the LAMB. 

    Idris Elba stars as a recently widowed Doctor, who had separated from his sick wife and must find a way to reconnect with his teen daughters who just lost their...

    Lambcast #649  Princess Mononoke  MOTM

    Studio Ghibli makes an appearance on the LAMBcast with Hayao Miyazaki’s spectacular success “Princess Mononoke”. When it was first released in Japan, it set box office records and toppled E.T. from the throne of Japanese box office champion. Although it’s reign was short (it was Replaced as the top box office film in Japan by Titanic, just a few months later) Princess Mononoke was influential in making animation a...

    LAMBcast #648   Bullet Train

    Mindless action, intriguing characters, exotic locals and fast moving trains, does that sound like fun to you? It sure did to our guests this week who all had generally good things to say about the latest film from action director David Leitch. It certainly doesn’t hurt when your leading man is Brad Pitt, fresh from therapy and ready to take on gangsters with a new non-aggressive approach, let’s see how that works out. ...

    LAMBcast #646   NOPE

    The biggest horror film release in the Summer, and we could only manage to get one guest to connect with the show. Fortunately that guest was the ever reliable Lisa Leaheey, who in addition to always being able to count on, she is a horror junkie, so we let the right one in. Two of our guests looked up and made eye contact and, well, …you know.

    Jordan Peele has released his third horror feature, and although...

    Lambcast #645   Stand By Me  MOTM

    This month, Lisa Leaheey championed the winner of the MOTM Poll and she had her reasons. Some of you don’t go in the water because of “Jaws”, some of you take baths instead of showers because of “Psycho”. It looks like Lisa will be avoiding county fairs because of this movie, which traumatized her early on in life.

    “Stand By Me” is the beloved coming of age film from Director Rob Reiner...
