    The next Movie of the Month will be…


    The poll results are in – thank you to the 98 voters who took part. That’s a new record, though I suspect some non-LAMB funny business was afoot, what with the winning film’s overwhelming last-minute takeover of the poll… Anyway, the next MOTM will be Dead Man, which destroyed the competition by taking in 34.7% of the votes. Here’s what goes down from here:

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #92: Moon

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #92: Moon

    Duncan Jones’ 2009 sci-fi drama Moon kind of crept up on audiences, but they quickly fell in love with its intimacy, it’s ambition, and its inventiveness. Made for a mere $5MM, its setting and effects gave the impression of a much larger-budgeted film, and Jones’ direction combined with a career-defining performance by Sam Rockwell (in a career seemingly chock full of new peaks) made it an Oscar hopeful and surefire cult...

    The poll results are in – thank you to the 81 voters who took part. The next MOTM will be Moon, which destroyed the competition by taking in 27.2% of the votes. Here’s what goes down from here:

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #88: Bronson

    Tom Hardy has been acting in high-profile films since the early 2000s (Black Hawk Dawn, Star Trek: Nemesis), but it wasn’t until 2008 when he made a name for himself, first in Guy Ritchie’s “comeback” film RockNRolla, and subsequently in the film of the day, Bronson. The sixth film from Danish director Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive) is, well…have a look at the plot synopsis from IMDb, as it might be the most...

    The next Movie of the Month will be…


    The poll results are in – thank you to the 71 voters who took part. The next MOTM will be Bronson (how perfectly coincidental, hot on the heels of the superhot Drive). Here’s what needs to go down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that October 15th is the big day. Sorry for the short turnaround this time, but a) it’s a newer film, so many have probably seen it already, and b) it’s on...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #85: Bande à parte

    Are you ready to get your Nouvelle Vague on? We take a gander at Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Bande à parte for the MOTM this time out.

    For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:

    “A triangle: Franz, Arthur, and Odile. Franz, a young man with Alain Delon good looks, has met Odile in an English class. She lives in Joinville with wealthy benefactors and has mentioned to Franz that Mr. Stolz keeps a pile...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #80: The Long Kiss Goodnight

    Renny Harlin’s 1996 film The Long Kiss Goodnight was, for better or worse, mostly left behind by audiences. With a $65 million budget and close to $100 million in worldwide receipts, it undoubtedly made money, but its $33 million gross in the United States stamped the film as a failure in spite of overall positive reviews. More to the point, since its release, it seems to have been largely forgotten by film fans, wedged somewhere in...
