    Lambcast #703   A Haunting in Venice

    Spooky goings on in a mansion in Venice bring famed detective Hercule Poirot out of a self imposed exile from criminal investigations. Is spiritualism real or a con? Has there been a murder or simply a tragedy? Is this a cozy mystery or an alcohol fueled trip into darkness? By the time we are done with this week’s show, you should have the answers to those questions.

    Sitting around our séance table this week are last...

    Lambcast #702   Real Genius MOTM

    Our movie of the Month for September is a Back to School Special for all the really bright Lambs out there. If you are not so bright, you will probably enjoy it as well. The film is “Real Genius” from 1985. It’s one of three films opening within a two week span in 1985 classified as Teen Sci Fi Comedies. Those of us on the show this week, would largely agree that this one wins “Best in...

    Lambcast #701 Whatcha Been Watchin’

Howard moves us through three rounds of Whatcha Been Watchin’ films with Nicole Ayers of The MadLab Post, David Brook from Blueprint Review, Stephen Palmer from the Asian Cinema Film Club and newcomer Daniel Chadwick-Shubat from the Get Reel Movies Blog.

    Howard,as always, finds some interesting...

    Lambcast #700  700th Episode Celebration

    In this “special” episode of the LAMBcast we take note of this new milestone by getting together some of the long time hosts of the show, including the founder of the LAMB Dylan Fields.

    The conversation starts out with a discussion of the origination of the Lamb and a little backstage talk about the first Lambcast. Dylan went from primitive recording to polished host. Jay Cluitt started out as a disagreeable guest...

    Lambcast #699   Decade Lookback 1978

    This week on the Lambcast, we step into the Wayback Machine and take a trip to the Me Decade. Disco was still king, Sequels were becoming more and more typical, and nostalgia for the Beatles was the driving force of a couple of movies on our lists. We expanded the guest list this week to include some people who have first hand memories of 1978, and we got at least 26 different films to share with each other and with you.

    Lambcast #698   Hero-MOTM

    When the Movie of the Month show rolls around, we always hope for a gem, but sometimes we get a cubic zirconia. This month the guest list evaluating the film discovers a true jewel and happily dive into the discussion of the 2002 film “Hero”.  

    Heather Baxendale-Walsh championed this personal favorite to the winner’s circle and she enthusiastically sums up the story and draws attention to the aspects...

    Lambcast #697  Meg 2: The Trench

    No one expected Meg 2: The Trench, to be the second coming of “Jaws”, but neither did they expect it to be the second coming of “Sharknado”. Is that how it turned out? Our guests this week are not very forgiving of the movie’s shortcomings and the chum is in the water for the LambSharks to go crazy over.

    This hybrid film feature Jonas Taylor gong the 007 route and becoming an eco-warrior. It’s...

    Lambcast #696  Drive-In Double Feature

    Forget your F.O.M.O. when choosing a film or two for your summer evening, the Lambcast has you covered this week. Four Lambs have programed a double feature for you, and they all had slightly different approaches for doing so. Before we give you our suggestions however, we have a fun discussion of our own histories with double features and with Drive-Ins.

    Howard Casner has memories of kiddie matinees that turned into double...

    Lambcast #695  Barbie

    The Lamb Community chose this as the new feature that they wanted covered for July. They appear to have chosen wisely because this was the biggest opening of the year, and a marketing success across the board. This week the Lamb contributes to the marketing behemoth that “Barbie” has become by discussing the films merits, faults, politics, music and dance numbers.

    Barbie and Ken face an existential crisis and must...

    Lambcast #694   “Dark Angel”  MOTM

    We don’t want to say that the summer has produced slim pickings for the MOTM, but this moth’s winner came from only three submissions and the August MOTM will be picked from two choices. All you Lambs on vacation, don’t forget to submit your choices early. That said, we lucked out that Mark Hofmeyer needed a film to chillax to after streaming through several franchises, and he found this 1990 action/sci-fi mashup for us to...

    Lambcast #693  Roll Your Own Top 5

    We are knee deep into Summer and there are new films all around us. Who cares? We have lots of things to talk about and we will not be straightjacketed into the Spider-verse or told our Destiny. The Lambs want to make up their own rules and this week they come up with some guidelines that you will certainly enjoy.

    If you are a surfer, you know there is more than one kind of wave. As a film fan, you should learn that the French...

    Lambcast #692   Asteroid City

    “You can’t wake up, if you don’t fall asleep.” Some people find it easy to fall asleep at a Wes Anderson film. His dry, deadpan style, rarely creates a compelling action sequence, but the visual images ought to be enough to keep your vitreous humor intact and your eyelids open.

    There is plenty to see, and with a history of quirky films in the Anderson Filmography, there are plenty of side roads to talk about. This week...
