    Lambcast #670  Blood Simple  MOTM
    Whenever MOTM rolls around, you are sure to get something interesting, that doesn’t always mean good but in this month’s show it does mean great. “Blood Simple” is the debut film of Joel and Ethan Coen as well as Frances McDormand, their leading lady. Set in Central Texas, it is a neo noir with a high suspense quotient and several memorable scenes. Texas resident Sean Homrig was the champion of the film and he leads our...

    Vote for February 2023’s Movie of the Month!
    It’s time to vote on the next Movie of the Month! For their birthday month we allow the Lambcast host to select all the possible movie choices, and as Richard is undertaking a year-long celebration of the films of 1975 he opted for a selection of them for next month’s poll. There are eight films to choose from, one of which I’d heard of before creating this poll, so make your choice, cast your vote, and the winning film will be...

    The Movie of the Month for January 2023 is…
    Happy New Year from the LAMB! To celebrate the ceremonial flipping of the calendar, let’s announce the latest Movie of the Month! As usual a bunch of LAMB members submitted all sorts of movies to be voted upon, one of them has won and that lucky film will get a Lambcast episode dedicated to it. We had that rarest of wonders this month with a film receiving zero votes – not even Mark Hofmeyer wanted to vote for his own film –...

    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, but if you’re not happy with the result then...

    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...

Six movies were put forward for the hallowed title and, despite a somewhat lacklustre voting turnout this month there is still a winner, so whether you care or not the movie of the...

  • Lambcast #653 Proof of Life MOTM

    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. The movie is best remembered not for the action scenes, or the political perspective on South American politics, but rather for the brief affair of the two stars which brought to a close the marriage of Ryan to actor Dennis Quaid. For the most part, our guests on...

    The Movie of the Month for September 2022 is…
    Sometimes the best way to win a Movie of the Month poll is to pick a popular film that everyone wants to talk about, but that’s not the only way. I’m not saying whether this month’s winner picked this option or not, but I can for certain say that their particular tactic involved promoting the poll, and their film, as much as possible over the past week, resulting in something of a landslide vote. So it’s no real surprise...
