    Lambcast # 639   Summer Memories

    We were sorry to lose three guests before the show started, but they will be sorry when they hear how much fun we had cruising down memory lane. Whether you are a millennial, a gen-x kid or even a Boomer, you are going to find a story or two to tickle you. At least three dozen films get mentioned and undoubtedly one of them will be a favorite of yours.

    Lambcast #638  Top Gun: Maverick

    The latest film from Tom Cruise has arrived in theaters, delayed for two years by Covid, but it appears that the pent up anticipation has not dissipated as the Box Office this last weekend was monster. The podcast for the show suffered a high number of casualties however, as guest host Howard had only Heather Baxendale Walsh to disagree with this week. Don’t think that the show suffers from that however because the two of them do some...

    Lambcast #637   Men

    For a second week in a row, a one syllable title, this time a new film and from one of the most promising directors of the last decade, Alex Garland. “Men” is a horror film that stars Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear and it has a bigger cast but not a lot of other actors. To find out what that means you have to listen to the podcast.

    Suffice it to say, the newly minted Academy Award Nominee Jessie Buckley...

    Vote for June 2022’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for June’s Movie of the Month! As is tradition, we use the month of June to celebrate exclusively films directed by female film-makers (which can also be submitted any other month of the year as well, but only female directors can be championed for June). This month there are seven films to choose between, and the winner of the poll will have a Lambcast episode...

    Lambcast #632 Whatca Been Watchin’

    In the lull before all the Summer Box Office Competition starts, the Lambcast this week takes an opportunity to check in on what our guests have been watching, anywhere. We ended up with some films that are in theaters currently and some movies that were in theaters 90 years ago. Once again, the Criterion Channel should be paying us ad fees for the referrals we are providing.

    Lambcast #631 The Lord of the Rings April MOTM Franchise Lookback

    This week the Lambcast tackles one of the most monumental film franchises of all time, Peter Jackson’s adaptions of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”. Heather Baxendale-Walsh championed the Franchise to victory in the poll and she takes over the discussion with the passion you would expect from a huge fantasy fan. Howard Casner, Todd Liebenow and Matthew Simpson join our fellowship for the podcast and everyone...

    Lambcast #630   Morbius

    It is hard to imagine that we went through this whole episode without the obvious Dad Joke, “How can I have Morbius if I haven’t had any yet?” If we can skip a corny line like that, you know you will be getting a sophisticated analysis of the new Marvel/Sony adjacent comic book movie. Okay, that may be overstating it a little but we do treat the film fairly.

    Before we get to the comic book movie though, we...

    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

    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.

    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....
