    Lambcast #698   Hero-MOTM

    When the Movie of the Month show rolls around, we always hope for a gem, but sometimes we get a cubic zirconia. This month the guest list evaluating the film discovers a true jewel and happily dive into the discussion of the 2002 film “Hero”.  

    Heather Baxendale-Walsh championed this personal favorite to the winner’s circle and she enthusiastically sums up the story and draws attention to the aspects...

    Lambcast #697  Meg 2: The Trench

    No one expected Meg 2: The Trench, to be the second coming of “Jaws”, but neither did they expect it to be the second coming of “Sharknado”. Is that how it turned out? Our guests this week are not very forgiving of the movie’s shortcomings and the chum is in the water for the LambSharks to go crazy over.

    This hybrid film feature Jonas Taylor gong the 007 route and becoming an eco-warrior. It’s...

    Lambcast #696  Drive-In Double Feature

    Forget your F.O.M.O. when choosing a film or two for your summer evening, the Lambcast has you covered this week. Four Lambs have programed a double feature for you, and they all had slightly different approaches for doing so. Before we give you our suggestions however, we have a fun discussion of our own histories with double features and with Drive-Ins.

    Howard Casner has memories of kiddie matinees that turned into double...

    Lambcast #695  Barbie

    The Lamb Community chose this as the new feature that they wanted covered for July. They appear to have chosen wisely because this was the biggest opening of the year, and a marketing success across the board. This week the Lamb contributes to the marketing behemoth that “Barbie” has become by discussing the films merits, faults, politics, music and dance numbers.

    Barbie and Ken face an existential crisis and must...

    Lambcast #694   “Dark Angel”  MOTM

    We don’t want to say that the summer has produced slim pickings for the MOTM, but this moth’s winner came from only three submissions and the August MOTM will be picked from two choices. All you Lambs on vacation, don’t forget to submit your choices early. That said, we lucked out that Mark Hofmeyer needed a film to chillax to after streaming through several franchises, and he found this 1990 action/sci-fi mashup for us to...

    Lambcast #693  Roll Your Own Top 5

    We are knee deep into Summer and there are new films all around us. Who cares? We have lots of things to talk about and we will not be straightjacketed into the Spider-verse or told our Destiny. The Lambs want to make up their own rules and this week they come up with some guidelines that you will certainly enjoy.

    If you are a surfer, you know there is more than one kind of wave. As a film fan, you should learn that the French...

    The Movie of the Month for July 2023 is…

    It’s time to announce the next Movie of the Month winner! We eventually only had three films to choose between, and I don’t know if the voting pool is becoming more eclectic or we’re running out of well-known films, but for the second month in a row the film is a film I’d never heard of prior to it appearing in a MOTM poll! This month’s winner is I Come In...

    Lambcast #692   Asteroid City

    “You can’t wake up, if you don’t fall asleep.” Some people find it easy to fall asleep at a Wes Anderson film. His dry, deadpan style, rarely creates a compelling action sequence, but the visual images ought to be enough to keep your vitreous humor intact and your eyelids open.

    There is plenty to see, and with a history of quirky films in the Anderson Filmography, there are plenty of side roads to talk about. This week...

    Lambcast #691  The Flash

    Despite the controversies, DCEU hatred, and frequent delays, “The Flash” has finally arrived in movie theaters and we have a cast of heroes worthy of talking about it.

    This follow-up to the Justice League, was a long time coming, and it picks up as if the League is operating everyday as an International Intervention Team, fighting crime, watching for alien invasions, and generally patrolling the Earth looking for...

    Lambcast #690  Mikey and Nicky June MOTM

    “Mikey and Nicky” is the controversial third film from director Elaine May. It is a gangster film of sorts, but what it really concerns is the toxic relationship of two friends, and the complications that come from misplaced loyalty and long term connections. June is the MOTM that we specify that we want a film from a woman director and Elaine May is only the third woman to direct a Hollywood film in the sound era. Is this 1976...

    Lambcast #689  Decade Lookback 1985

    Boomers and Gen Xers get together to remind everyone, including the Millennials and Gen Z, about some great movies from 1985. You won’t hear a word about Rambo: First Blood Part II or Back to the Future and Max has nothing to get Mad about except that he got left out of this show. There are a few well known films that get discussed, but most of the movies on this episode are unlikely to be on your radar.

    Lambcast #688  Authors Corner/Book Talk

    This week on the Lambcast, we change it up a bit with some conversation about books rather than movies. Don’t despair however, the books we are talking about are indeed about the movies, so there will be plenty that you will want to hear about. 

    First up is a return visit from author Eric Friedman, a movie fan who has used the movies to tell his life story. Eric was a guest on the Lambcast two years ago when the...
