    The Movie of the Month for May is…

    There were only three films submitted for the May MOTM, but all of them received some support. One of them however, was the clear favorite of the LAMB community and received well over half the votes cast. This month we get a MOTM winner that may actually still be playing in some theaters, 

    “Late Night With the Devil”

    Congratulations to Jason Soto of “Rabbit Hole Podcasts”, for...

    Vote for the May MOTM

    We need a quick turnaround on the MOTM Poll. Fortunately, there are only three submissions so your vote is unlikely to be diluted by the short voting window.

    Howard Casner of “Pop Art” has submitted The American Astronaut a Musical/Comedy/Sci Fi from 2001.

    Jason Soto, from “Rabbit Hole Podcasts” suggests Late Night with the Devil, a very fresh horror film from...

    LAMBcast #729  “Aperl” MOTM Franchise-Planet of the Apes

    Nine Movies seemed a little overwhelming for a single episode, so Matthew Simpson, of the “Awesome Friday Podcast” suggested that the three reboot films be the subject of our April MOTM Franchise show. The choice came after a tight race between three franchises, separated by a single vote each. Matthew hosts Nicole Ayers from MadLabPost and runner up Sean Homrig, from the Cabot Cove ConFab, in a discussion of the three modern...

    The Movie of the Month for March 2024 is…

    There were four films submitted for MOTM for March, and everyone got some votes. A couple of the films had been talked about on the show, but that was not enough to put them over the top. It takes a dedicated LAMB, willing to use Social Media, to get the kind of support that turned the vote from a close contest to a run-away victory.

    Congratulations to The Vern of Cinema Recall, his strategy led to a result that will allow him to...

    Lambcast #723  The King of Comedy-February MOTM

    This month’s selection as MOTM came from a list of Blind Spots submitted by the host. A Martin Scorsese flop from 1983, which has grown in stature over the years, “The King of Comedy” starring Robert DeNiro. DeNiro is the frustrated, Rupert Pupkin, obsessed with becoming a comedy great. However, when he confronts his idol, talk show host Jerry Langford, with a plea to perform on Jerry’s show, he is only given the...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2024 is…

    The Movie of the Month Winner was selected from a list of seven, submitted by LAMBcast host Richard Kirkham in recognition of the month of his birth. All of the films were Blind Spots for your host and new Shepard, so whatever won was going to be something new for the show, even if the film was sixty years old.

    Two films that were submitted received no votes, but the race between the top two films was close until the end. The Movie...
