    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?

    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.

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...

    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).

    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?
