    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 #711   The Holdovers

    This week we get back to talking about new movies, and it is the time of the year that the cream begins to rise to the top. Director Alexander Payne is a two time Academy Award winning screenwriter, and a three time directing nominee, so when he shows up with a new film, it seems likely to be talked about in the awards season. “The Holdovers” features a cranky history teacher at a remote prep school who is forced to remain on...

    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...

    Lambcast #691  The Flash

    Despite the controversies, DCEU hatred, and frequent delays, “The Flash” has finally arrived in movie theaters and we have a cast of heroes worthy of talking about it.

    This follow-up to the Justice League, was a long time coming, and it picks up as if the League is operating everyday as an International Intervention Team, fighting crime, watching for alien invasions, and generally patrolling the Earth looking for...

    Lambcast #679  Shazam! Fury of the Gods

    The Lambcast this year is trying to limit the number of podcasts featuring a new film to no more than two a month. That will sometimes mean that a film that excites the community may not appear on the schedule. That could be easily adjusted if anyone wants to contact the show and tell us what it is you really want to talk about. It also means that sometimes you will have to hear what the host wants to talk about, and that seemed to be the...

    Lambcast #607  Dune (2021)

    For a lot of people, this was the most anticipated film of last year, which means when it got rolled back to this year, there were a lot of people anxious for it to finally be released. This last weekend, after debuting in other markets around the world, “Dune” found it’s way onto screens in the U.S. and we can finally talk about it.

    Our guests had a variety of backgrounds on the story of Dune, we had people...

    Lambcast #605  No Time to Die

    If you have listened to the podcast any time in the last two years, you will certainly know that “No Time to Die” has been one of the most anxiously awaited films for our podcasting community. In the lead up to the original release, we had prepared and executed a series of Lookback episodes covering the entire franchise. We also had a couple of drafts and there were some MOTM episodes featuring 007 as well. The pandemic threw a...

    Lambcast #604   Titane

    Crazy people making movies, that then get discussed by crazy people watching them. Those are the best ways to describe this week’s Lambcast. The Winner of the “Palme d’or” at this year’s Cannes Film Festival arrives on the LAMB with a bang.

    Is it a horror film, a socially conscious feminist take down of convention, a transphobic waste of time, or an artistic bravura achievement? Our...

    Lambcast #603  Dear Evan Hansen

    A musical about teen suicide sounds delightful doesn’t it? Probably not, which is one of the many obstacles this film will face when trying to find an audience. In spite of being a Broadway hit, the challenge to making this into a film is considerable. This week, the smallest flock we have had in a year, gathered to figure out why the movie is having trouble reaching the same heights of success that the play did....

    Lambcast #602  Cry Macho

    Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way. Clint is 91. That means he is far older than the members of our podcast this week. So any of you out there, thinking of mocking the old guys on this week’s show, keep in mind that we are still whippersnappers to the Man.

    Collectively, including the star of the movie, we may have the most mature Lambcast ever assembled, but it’s still a good...

    Lambcast #560 The Croods: A New Age

    New Films are the theme of the late November/early December period on the Lamb, and this one is the spearhead for the holiday season. It has taken seven years to get a followup to Dreamworks “The Croods” , but the main voice cast is back for another trip to prehistoric times.  Our sleep pile this week is thinner, but it is pretty warm to the subject.


    Come join Richard as he and Amanda, Rachel and newcomer...
