    Lambcast #711   The Holdovers

    This week we get back to talking about new movies, and it is the time of the year that the cream begins to rise to the top. Director Alexander Payne is a two time Academy Award winning screenwriter, and a three time directing nominee, so when he shows up with a new film, it seems likely to be talked about in the awards season. “The Holdovers” features a cranky history teacher at a remote prep school who is forced to remain on...

    Lambcast #710  80s Fantasy Film Draft

    Another world, another time, in the age of wonder. A thousand years ago, this land was green and good… a lot of fantasy stories start along these lines. Something that was good has been lost and must be found, or something evil is threatening something good. Those somethings often come in the form of dragons, wizards or monsters (and sometimes even a goblin king). This week on the Lambcast, we decided to go to an era of classic fantasy...

    Lambcast #708   Killers of the Flower Moon

    Most people anticipate a new Martin Scorsese movie, the way an eight year old looks forward to Christmas. We can hardly stand the time it takes to arrive, we want to shake the packages under the tree, and we hope that there will be joy when the gift is opened. Sometimes parents learn that the box is the bigger attraction than what was inside. Is that what happened with “Killers of the Flower Moon? Did Santa deliver, or did we get some...

    Lambcast #706  Decade Lookback 2013

    This Decade Lookback Show is actually looking back a decade. We get in our time traveling Blu-Ray player and visit the films of 2013. A day before recording, three guests had to drop out, but that did not prevent a wide assortment of films from being included. The Pineapple Kiosk rule was invoked only once in the course of the show.

    Todd Liebenow felt that ten years was not long enough to forget some films, so his list consists...
