    Lambcast #668  Top Films of 2022

    It’s the end of one year and the start of a new one, just exactly the invitation we need for a Top Ten show. What did you think were the best films of 2022? You should feel free to share your lists in the comment section, but not before you listen to this epic Lambcast episode. Epic in the sense that it is almost as long as “Avatar:The Way of Water” and “Babylon” and definitely longer than “The...

    Lambcast #667   Glass Onion a Knives Out Mystery

    The Lambcast finishes off 2022 with a film that was released a month ago. The reason we are late to this Murder Mystery Party is that the theatrical release was only a week long and we waited until it was streaming to make sure everyone could see it. It’s hard to imagine a podcast with spoilers getting much traction when the movie would not be available to most listeners for a month. It’s here now however, so let’s dive...

    Lambcast #666  Avatar The Way of Water

    Over a dozen years after the first visit to Pandora, James Cameron returns to the alien world of his imagination with a continuation of the story that made “Avatar” the biggest box office hit in history. “The Way of Water” follows up on the characters from the first story, adds a lot more and expands the visual world building of Cameron in some marvelous ways.

    Lambcast #665   Empire of Light

    This week on the Lambcast, we take on another film featuring movies as the subject matter, at least that’s what we were promised. “Empire of Light” is the new film from director Sam Mendes who has a pretty good track record including two James Bond movies and the technically brilliant “1917”. It may be that hubris has set in, because our guests this week seem to be on a mission to skewer the film....

    Lambcast #664  “It’s a Wonderful Life”  MOTM

    If you want to get out your calendars now and create a timeline of this story, MovieRob will give you his best guess about the dates of all the events in the film. It’s Movie of the Month time and Rob championed “It’s a Wonderful Life” to the poll position. We take a chronological journey through the beloved Frank Capra classic, and we still manage to miss the error in Harry Baily’s death age in the alternate...

    Lambcast #663   The Fabelmans

    A movie that takes a nostalgic look at one of the most celebrated filmmakers of our time, is examined by some LAMBs who are not particularly nostalgic but who definitely love movies. Steven Spielberg takes on his own life story and the Lambcast takes on his film in this week’s episode.

    Gabriel LaBelle as Sammy Fabelman, our Spielberg Character.

    Howard Casner leads the three guests through an elaborate discussion of the new...

    Lambcast #661  Black Panther Wakanda Forever

    Welcome back to the MCU, this is their third film of 2022 and it is likely to be the most successful. Should it be? In addition to the usual discussion, we have a dissenting opinion from a LAMB who had big reservations about the original “Black Panther” movie and chose not to support this one as a result. We happily provide a platform for Nicole Ayers and as you listen, you may see that the issues she presents are largely...

    Lambcast #660  U.S. Marshals   MOTM

    Did you remember that there was a sequel to the 1993 Academy Award Nominated Best Picture “The Fugitive”? A lot of people do not recall that but Jeanette Ward was not one of those, she is laser focused on Wesley Snipes and he stars as the new fugitive in this 1998 film.

    Tommy Lee Jones reprises his Academy Award winning role as Deputy Marshal Sam Gerard and he is as badass as you remember. He brings back his posse...

    Lambcast #658   Black Adam

    So the DCEU means to get down to business and reformat it’s films to integrate more effectively and to break the mold of the bleak CGI fests that have dominated their output so far. Dwayne Johnson has entered the arena with promises that “Black Adam” will be a gamechanger. Delayed twice, this is a highly anticipated storyline which may create a new hierarchy of power among the DC superheroes, but does it fix the deficiencies...

    Lambcast #657  Halloween 2018-2022 Lookback

    The Lambcast can’t get enough of horror films in October, and the horror fans seemingly can’t get enough of Halloween Films featuring Michael Myers and Jamie Leigh Curtis. Director David Gordon Green relaunched the franchise in 2018 with the simply repeated title “Halloween”. Covid intervened and “Halloween Kills” took a little longer to get to us than planned, and “Halloween Ends” arrives one...

    Lambcast #656 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) MOTM

    Horror films from the 1970s are being remade on a regular basis. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been remade twice and there are six other iterations of the film, but it’s hard to top the original. TCM is often cited as one of the most frightening movies ever made, it certainly was shocking, but despite it’s reputation it is surprisingly gore free.

    Five friends take a trip out to the old homestead of the brother...
