    Lambcast #727   Decade Lookback 1967

    The Summer of Love was also a year of change in the movie business. The Hollywood Production code was breathing it’s last breath, and the old guard of Hollywood was making way for the future. European films directed at the general American audience were being produced by the truckload, and French Directors were influencing American movies in more than one way.

    So what do our guests this week talk about? Not “The...

    Lambcast #727  “Spoiler Alert!”

    Everyone knows that spoilers are irritating to film fans who have not yet seen the movie. Here on the LAMBcast however, most of us have seen these movies so we are not afraid to talk about them, in particular the key elements that might spoil the movie for you. This week’s episode is the antithesis of what we usually try to do here. We are not coy about giving away the ending of a movie, a plot twist or two, or revealing the presence of...

    Lambcast #722  Decade Lookback 1991

    Those of you old enough to remember the year 1991, or at least, to have watched the videotapes from that year, will enjoy soaking up some nostalgia vibes this week. Everyone was asked to bring five movies to the show this episode and none of them were films Nominated for Best Picture by the Academy.

    Lambcast #721   Argylle

    This week on the Lambcast we are talking about a new film that opened in theaters rather than streaming. Director Matthew Vaughn has been making spy films for a while now. His film “Layer Cake” was where the EON folks found Daniel Craig to play James Bond. It seems he is pitching a new 007 in his latest film, the frequently linked to the Bond Franchise, Henry Cavill. Whether or not Cavill gets a License to Kill, he has been deeply...

    Double Duty this week on the Lambcast, as two new releases get our attention, and they could not be directed at more completely different audiences. One film features music and dancing by high school kids, working out their adolescent issues, and the other is filled with violence and mayhem because old people were being taken advantage of. Tina Fey and Jason Statham might never work together in a film, but this weeks episode goes down better...
