    Lambcast #617  Top Ten Films of 2021
    On this week’s show, we say farewell to 2021, or maybe it’s good riddance. The last year created a lot of problems for the cinema business but we still managed to get some good films in theaters for audiences to enjoy. The five voices on this show had some wide ranging opinions on the films that were released in 2021, including whether or not films were actually 2021. Release schedules around the world differ and it did not help that...

    Lambcast #616 December Movie Dump

    The Lambcast did not do many shows in the last two months of the year that were devoted to individual films. December is the spot where most of the Oscar Bait ends up and wannabe blockbusters and family entertainment go to live or die.

    We have attempted the near impossible, collectively covering 14 new releases in a single show. Some of the guests saw everything and at least one person bothered wit “Matrix...

    THE 2021 LAMBPARDY FINAL!

    Alert the media! Start a parade! Set fire to something! It’s the 2021 Lambpardy final!

    It’s been over a year in the making, but the Lambpardy final is finally here! 27 LAMB members have duked it out across 12 shows, 36 daily doubles, 732 questions and at least one round dedicated to cinematic dildoes to arrive here with our final three. Todd, Lisa and Justin all have very different histories with Lambpardy but they...

    Lambcast #615  Spider-Man Lookback

    It looks like audiences will go to the movies, if the movie is an MCU Spider-Man film. “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is already the most successful new release since the pandemic. The money made on opening weekend dwarfs the total box office of recent “hits” and it is likely to suck up the oxygen for several more weekends. We at the LAMB are not going to let such a success go by without commenting on it, so the first half...

  • Lambcast #614 Christmas MOTM L.A. Confidential

    Lambcast #614 Christmas MOTM  L.A. Confidential

    It’s already been mentioned , but I will repeat it again, the LAMB has a history of seeking out left field choices for the Christmas MOTM, “Batman Returns” being a pretty good example of a previous off the wall choice. Nothing wrong with that when there are so many holiday options, sometimes a change of pace is fun. So if police corruption, murder, prostitution and blackmail are your idea of a great way to celebrate the...

    Lambcast #613 Video Comfort Food

    Exactly what is video comfort food? Obviously, the metaphor stems from the cuisine we consume that fits a particular criteria.  If you call something comfort food, you mean it is enjoyable to eat and makes you feel happier, although it may not be very good for your health. Movies can work the same way, they are enjoyable and make us happy, without necessarily enlightening or challenging us much. The trick is that people have vastly...

    Lambcast #612   Top Film Releases of the Holiday Season 1990s Edition

    We tried something new on the Lambcast for Thanksgiving weekend. Instead of looking at a specific film or a particular year, we went in search of a decade. Nostalgia reigns on this episode as we explore the 1990s using a different kind of filter. Our guests were asked to bring a top ten list of films released from mid November to the end of the year from any time during the decade.

    We got a list of 35 movies from six...

    The Movie of the Month for December 2021 is…

    It’s the holiday season! That means December’s Movie of the Month is, as usual. holiday-themed and, as usual, the winning holiday-themed film is only tangentially related to the holiday season (hello Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Gremlins, Batman Returns and Meet Me in St Louis). This time around the film in question might be vying with Batman...

    Lambcast #611  Ghostbusters Afterlife

    The blackout is over for this long delayed sequel to Ghostbusters, not the 2016 iteration, but the classic 1984 film and it’s 1989 follow up. Is it worthy, will you be disappointed, why should you never trust atoms?

    Time has passed and the Ghostbusters are not a thriving enterprise anymore. The long estranged family of Egon Spengler has inherited his farm, but do any of them have the ability to see what it was...

    Lambcast #610  M*A*S*H  M*O*T*H

    Misogynistic, Homophobic, Racist, are all terms that you will hear in today’s show, you will also hear, Funny, Entertaining, and Innovative. Can a film that steps on so many toes really work, especially in today’s more sensitive culture? That is one of the many questions that gets discussed on this week’s Lambcast.

    The irreverent 1970 film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture...

    Lambcast #608   The Last Duel (aka “the Ending of The Last Duel Explained”)

    Usually the arrival of a film from Ridley Scott would be heralded by much ado and pomp and circumstance. This is the man who brought us “Alien”, “Blade Runner”, “Thelma and Louise”, “Black Hawk Down”, “Gladiator” and “The Martian”. However he also brought us “Legend”, “Prometheus”, “The Counselor” and “Exodus: Gods and...
