    Lambcast #734  Decade Lookback 1998

    This week the “Wayback Machine” transports the show back 26years to 1998. Titanic Still lingered at the box office but it was last year’s movie. In front of us was the Blockbuster Showdown of the Summer, and the most controversial Best Picture Showdown in ages. Most of that we ignore, because the guests on these week’s show have their own agenda’s. 

    Although they couldn’t make the show,...

    Lambcast #733   Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

    Director George Miller is 79, which means this week’s film comes from someone who is actually older than anyone on the show. “Furiosa” is both a prequel and a spin-off from the Mad Max franchise. It is directly connected to “Fury Road” from 2015, as you will be able to see from the characters who return from that film. It also introduces us to the character originally played by Charlize Theron in that 2015 film,...

    Lambcast #732   “Late Night with the Devil”  May’s MOTM

    Even if you don’t believe the Box Office report from opening weekend, that the movie made $666,666, you have to admit that’s a clever bit of business. The whole movie is loaded with those kinds of self referential moments, and the guests this week are anxious to join in dissecting them.

    Sitting down in the guest chairs for this week’s episode are Lisa Leaheey, Nick Rehak and Jason Soto, all from the...

    Lambcast #731   Buried Treasure

    This week, the Lambcast takes to the seas in search of treasures that may be lost or at least unknown to our community. We hoist the skull and crossbones in the hopes that we locate movies that deserve some attention but have been hidden for a variety of reasons. 

    Second Mate Nicole Ayers is ready to keel haul the makers of Mizuko for choosing a distribution system that basically buried the movie under in impenetrable Vimeo...

    Lambcast #730   The Fall Guy

    The Summer Season starts with a Romantic Comedy, masquerading as an action adventure mystery. There is a lot of action, not much mystery but at the heart of it all is a sweet love story set in the world of movie making. “The Fall Guy” may be a meta movie about movies, a summer popcorn flick, or a two hour argument for the Motion Picture Academy to finally give recognition to the stunt work in the films. Regardless of which...

    Vote for the May MOTM

    We need a quick turnaround on the MOTM Poll. Fortunately, there are only three submissions so your vote is unlikely to be diluted by the short voting window.

    Howard Casner of “Pop Art” has submitted The American Astronaut a Musical/Comedy/Sci Fi from 2001.

    Jason Soto, from “Rabbit Hole Podcasts” suggests Late Night with the Devil, a very fresh horror film from...

    LAMBcast #729  “Aperl” MOTM Franchise-Planet of the Apes

    Nine Movies seemed a little overwhelming for a single episode, so Matthew Simpson, of the “Awesome Friday Podcast” suggested that the three reboot films be the subject of our April MOTM Franchise show. The choice came after a tight race between three franchises, separated by a single vote each. Matthew hosts Nicole Ayers from MadLabPost and runner up Sean Homrig, from the Cabot Cove ConFab, in a discussion of the three modern...

    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 #726  Ghostbusters Frozen Empire

    There are now five films in the “Ghostbusters” Franchise (that is if you count the 2016 film which is widely dismissed by fans) and the newest one hit theaters this last week. The new cast from “Ghostbusters Afterlife” have moved back to New York City and they have taken up the family business, but not without some complications. 

    This week our cast of Lambs does some busting of their own, questioning...

    Lambcast #725  The Neon Demon- March MOTM

    The Vern’s choice for Movie of the Month was the winner for March, and he hosted the show on 2016’s “The Neon Demon”. Those of you longtime listeners of the Lambcast know that The Vern enjoys a divisive movie conversation, and that’s exactly what we got with this week’s show. Matthew Simpson from the Awesome Friday Podcast, and James Wilson from Blogging by Cinema Light, joined us for an examination of...

    Lambcast #724   DUNE  Part 2

    Welcome back to Arrakis, the one planet in the Universe that supplies the spice mélange, which allows interstellar travel. It’s only other significant export is jihad, and this week the guests on the show spend some time talking about the roots of that second product. Oh, we of course talk about the movie as well, a film that seems to be living up to everyone’s very high expectations.

    Three years ago, the first...
