    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #108: Blade Runner

     

    Once again, our Movie of the Month pick comes from the early 80s – specifically 1982, as discussed on the accompanying LAMBcast, a a banner year for sci-fi films the likes of which we probably won’t see again.  The choice this time out is Blade Runner, the Ridley Scott-directed, Harrison Ford-starring ensemble piece that delves into some of man’s largest questions: What does it mean to be human? To...

    Holding out for a Hero Champion

    Do you have what it takes to be a Movie of the Month Champion?

    Actually, that was somewhat rhetorical, as it doesn’t really take all that much.  Anyway, the call is officially out for those interested in championing a film for the next MOTM/LAMBcast.

    Here are the finer details:

    * If your championed film wins, you get to not only appear on that month’s LAMBcast, but to ‘host’ the MOTM segment...

    The next Movie of the Month will be…


    The Fogs’ Movie Reviews takeover of the LAMB is nearing completion. First, Dan went and flexed his muscle to get The Shining to be last month’s selection. But that wasn’t enough….no, not by a long stretch. When I announced the new Champions wrinkle, he was all over it, and quickly took to the streets, haggling everyone and anyone he could to vote for his selection.

    Or maybe folks just liked his choice...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #103: The Shining

    I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a movie fan, much less a movie blogger, not at least somewhat familiar with The Shining, but I give the IMDb summary every other time, so why not now?

    “A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future. “

    Let’s see...

    Introducing…MOTM Champions

    We’ve been doing the rejuvenated Movie of the Month (in conjunction with LAMBcasts devoted to said MOTMs) for close to a year now, and it’s time to throw in a new wrinkle. Along the way, we’ve had several people campaign heavily for one film or another, sometimes gaining support and getting that film voted as the winner (like, say, Joel with The Long Kiss Goodnight) and sometimes not quite having enough pull to get a win...

    The poll results are in – thank you to the 86 voters who took part. The next MOTM will be The Shining, which led pretty much the whole time thanks to a strong push from Fogs’ Movie Reviews and finished with a hefty 26.7% of the votes. Here’s what goes down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that February 11th is the big day. You have about 2 weeks to watch the flick (this posting is a few days...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #99: The Evil Dead

    The setup here is extremely simple, so let’s get it out of the way quickly – the IMDb summary, for those unfamiliar:

    “Five friends go up to a cabin in the woods, where they find unspeakable evil lurking in the forest. They find a tome called the Necronomicon and the taped translation of the text. Once the tape is played, the evil is released. One by one, the teens are possessed. With only one remaining, it is up to...

    The next Movie of the Month will be…


    The poll results are in – thank you to the 90 voters who took part. The next MOTM will be The Evil Dead, which had a pretty firm grip on the lead for the duration of the poll and held on to beat 2nd-place finisher Run Lola Run. with 20% of the votes. Here’s what goes down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that January 14th is the big day. You have about 2 1/2 weeks to watch the flick (this posting is...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #97: Dead Man

    To steal a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which will come up on the LAMBcast devoted to this MOTM, it’s quite possible that Jim Jarmusch, and this film in particular, are ” Too weird to live, and too rare to die.” Dead Man is some kind of neo-Western, a postmodern breed of film that’s too strange and slow perhaps for most audiences, but is music to the heart of so many others. Filled with striking images and...
