    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #76: The Third Man

    Veteran LAMBcaster James was pushing hard for The Third Man to be the next MOTM for a few months now, and he finally got his way. The 1949 drama starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles is regularly included on lists of the best noir films and was voted in 1999 as the best British film of the 20th century by the BFI.

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

    “An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly...

    The Next Movie of the Month Will Be….


    The poll results are in – thank you to the 78 voters (a new high again!) who have made The Third Man the next MOTM (we’re gonna have a string of movies that start with “The Thi-” going here, if we’re lucky). Here’s what needs to go down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that July 16th is the big day.

    * You have four weeks to watch the flick if you haven’t already,...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #71: The Thing

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #71: The Thing

    It seemed inevitable that The Thing would finally become the MOTM, after a couple progressively better showings in the polls (just as it seems inevitable that The Third Man will win one of these months). Good thing, too (no pun intended), as it’s a hell of a film. Interestingly enough, it wasn’t deemed a classic (and wasn’t commercially successful, either) upon its release, where it barely earned its budget back and arrived...

    The poll results are in – thank you to the 67 voters (a new high!) who have made The Thing the next MOTM. Here’s what needs to go down from here:

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #68: Oldboy

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #68: Oldboy

    The voters in our last MOTM poll overwhelmingly selected Oldboy as this month’s film, and it’s not hard to see why. Chan-wook Park’s genre-spanning 2003 film shockingly was not an instant classic, but has become more than a cult icon in the eight years since its release, climbing the IMDb Top 250 (it currently sits at #97) and, more importantly, becoming more and more known as one of the quintessential Asian films of the new...

    MOTM Reminder/Update


    I posted this on Facebook, but wanted to put the note up here as well: due to scheduling conflicts, the MOTM blog-a-thon (and the posting of the MOTM-themed LAMBcast) will be happening on Monday rather than today. The good news – this gives you more time to get your posts/reviews of Oldboy in!

    Send all links to blogcabins@yahoo.com. Thanks!

    Alright you jive-ass turkeys…it’s time to shut up and listen, ’cause grown ups is talking.

    That’s right, it’s time for the Movie of the Month, and with it, the LAMBcast dedicated to said movie. If you haven’t seen the 2009 comedy that kisses the feet of the blaxploitation genre just prior to sweeping those feet from the ground, you’re missing out. Can you dig it? So kick back, have yourself...
