    Lambcast #681  Buried Treasure
    Maybe in your parents garage.

    Movie lovers have always prized those rare gems that only they have seen. Like pieces of eight we hoard them and sleep pretty because we know they are in a safe place, buried in our memories or deep in a box in the garage. Sometimes though, we go in search of plunder to add to our buried treasures and that’s what today’s show is all about.

    Lambcast #680  The Bridge on the River Kwai  MOTM

    So before the month runs out, we probably should get to the Movie of the Month for March. MovieRob championed “The Bridge on the River Kwai” and hosts the show with a description of the plot and four other guests wallow in their admiration for his choice. There won’t be any surprise opinions about the worthiness of the film, but there is a detailed discussion of it’s qualities.

    In World War Two, is it a...

    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 #678   Triple Feature Time

    “Psychos, and Dinos and Bears oh My”, Ok, that’s not the way Dorothy and her friends chanted on the road to Oz, but it is the way you will be chanting as we skip through this week’s Lambcast. That’s because we got chased into a subway car by dinosaurs, where we we then ripped apart by Pablo Eskobear. This week is a genre mashup of movies that seem to show that the box office can still thrive, as long as you find...

    Lambcast #677  Whatcha Been Watching?

    It’s another special program on the Lambcast, where the guests determine the content and no one knows what we might be talking about. As it turns out, there were bingeable streaming series and pre-code favorites, floating around this week’s show. A month old horror film and a forty year old horror film also pop up in the discussions. 

    In the first round we get a VOD from this year and a gangster film that is over 90...

    Lambcast #676  Roll Your Own Top 5

    The special programs on the Lambcast continue to draw the greatest interest from the community. We have a full slate of podcasters this week, who rolled up their sleeves to roll up a top five list for you. As usual, we had no idea what was coming, because no one was required to clear their choices beforehand. The result is another eclectic set of lists that were fascinating to talk about and should encourage you to shop, think and...

    Lambcast #675 Ant Man and the WASP: Quantumania

    “I really enjoy the MCU films, except for the ones I hate”.

    So which way are we going to go in evaluating “Quantumania”?, you will have to listen to find out, but there are a few hints in the topics we cover on this week’s show.

    From the beginning, our panel confounds expectations. Former Lambcast Host Jay Cluitt was sure that he was going to be engaging in an argument with regular guest...

    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...

    Lambcast #673  Rom-Com Recommendations

    Valentine’s Day is coming and love is in the air, so are opinions about the genre of the Romantic Comedy. The flock gathers this week to do a little bit of analysis on why the Rom-Com is loathed by some, but also why they work when they do. The Love/Hate dynamic of the genre gets quite a bit of discussion before we get to any recommendations.

    The cast of todays show looks for rom coms in all sorts of places. The Vern for...

    Lambcast #672  Decade Lookback 2002

    There were a lot of terrific films released in 2002, also some 2001 films spill over in Great Britain so we throw in a couple of those as well. This week, the flock goes back in time twenty years to dig up some films you may love, some you may have forgotten and some you probably never heard about. These lookback episodes have been popular enough that we expand the guest list and end up with a slightly longer show than is typical, you will be...

    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.
