    The Movie of the Month for December 2022 is…

    The holiday season is upon us, so it must be time to announce December’s holiday special Movie of the Month! Six wildly different, vaguely Christmas-themed films were submitted (other seasonal holidays are eligible, but only Christmas films were championed this year), and you voted on the one you’d like to be discussed on the Lambcast. One of the films has now been deemed the winner,...

    Vote for December 2022’s Movie of the Month!

    It’s time to vote for December’s Movie of the Month! As always at this time of year we like to get a little festive, so this is the holiday-themed month. Past years however haven’t necessarily guaranteed an overly schmaltzy film, and some of this year’s submissions are very much holiday-adjacent, but that’s OK! There are six films to choose between, and the winning film will be the focus of December’s...

    Lambcast #653   Proof of Life  MOTM

    In an overwhelming vote manufactured by the proud champion of this film, the 2000 Russell Crowe/Meg Ryan drama “Proof of Life” was chosen as the September MOTM.

    For the most part, our...
