As has become tradition, for April we like to celebrate movie franchises, and just like last year we’ve expanded the definition to include the remake-a-palooza style of a film and its remakes. Whichever franchise wins the poll will get a Lambcast episode dedicated to it. The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are...

    A bunch of films won some awards yesterday, but there’s still one movie left to be crowned, and it’s only fitting that the day after the Oscars we celebrate another Best Picture winner for March’s Movie of the Month! That’s given the game away a little, as only one of this month’s nominees won Best Picture (although I believe there is still some deliberation as to...

    Lambcast #674  “The Man Who Would be King”  MOTM

    This week we celebrate February by selecting a film from the list of 1975 movies submitted by the host. “The Man Who Would be King” had been suggested a number of times but it has finally ascended to the throne for this week’s Lambcast.

    For those of you who are not familiar, the film is based on a Rudyard Kipling story, and in this telling, Kipling himself is a character, played by a hard to recognize...

    Happy Birthday to Lambcast host Richard Kirkham!

    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...
