    Vote for July 2022’s Movie of the Month!

As always, the winning film will have an upcoming Lambcast dedicated to it, and the film’s champion will get to host said show. The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are the...

    The Movie of the Month for April 2022 is…

    Last night/this morning the results of the Oscars were slapped into our faces with great fanfare and aplomb, yet they missed perhaps the biggest award of them all – the winner of April’s franchise special Movie of the Month poll! This oversight has been noted and we’re here today to rectify it, right this very instant. Ten franchises (or almost-franchises) were submitted,...

    Vote for April 2022’s Movie of the Month, franchise special!

    The Movie of the Month for March 2022 is…

    The vote has been cast and the results are in for March’s Movie of the Month! Five very different films were nominated, there can be only one winner and, given that it’s Oscar season, it seems only fitting that March’s winner is also a Best Picture nominee. That’s right, for March 2022 we’ll be talking about… The Conversation!

    Vote for February 2022’s Movie of the Month!

    The tradition, if you can call a three year old practice a tradition, has been that the hosts of the Lambcast choose the MOTM Poll selection for their Birthday Month. Until a full time co host joins the show, that means you will only suffer once a year with such selections. February is Richard’s Birthday month so here are the selections you get to vote for, with a brief explanation of why each is offered.
