    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...

    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 #690  Mikey and Nicky June MOTM

    “Mikey and Nicky” is the controversial third film from director Elaine May. It is a gangster film of sorts, but what it really concerns is the toxic relationship of two friends, and the complications that come from misplaced loyalty and long term connections. June is the MOTM that we specify that we want a film from a woman director and Elaine May is only the third woman to direct a Hollywood film in the sound era. Is this 1976...

    Lambcast #689  Decade Lookback 1985

    Boomers and Gen Xers get together to remind everyone, including the Millennials and Gen Z, about some great movies from 1985. You won’t hear a word about Rambo: First Blood Part II or Back to the Future and Max has nothing to get Mad about except that he got left out of this show. There are a few well known films that get discussed, but most of the movies on this episode are unlikely to be on your radar.

    Lambcast #688  Authors Corner/Book Talk

    This week on the Lambcast, we change it up a bit with some conversation about books rather than movies. Don’t despair however, the books we are talking about are indeed about the movies, so there will be plenty that you will want to hear about. 

    First up is a return visit from author Eric Friedman, a movie fan who has used the movies to tell his life story. Eric was a guest on the Lambcast two years ago when the...

    Lambcast #687  Summer Movie Season Showdown

    Are you ready for the summer movies coming this year? Is there any chance that Indiana Jones will be the Dial of Delight rather than of Disappointment? Will a singing mermaid be a hit in live action? Is it possible for a second year in a row that Tom Cruise will be dead reckoning on target with the movie audience? These questions may be answered by September, but that is the future. This show is about the past.

    Summer became...

    Lambcast #686  “Fantasia”  MOTM

    We lost our guest host at the last minute, but there were still four enthusiastic LAMBs ready to devour “Fantasia” and tell you what they thought of all of it and it’s individual parts. Bubbawheat remembered he was on this week’s show rather than last week’s. Howard Casner pitch hits for the Lambcast once again, and we kept Doug Jamison up till the wee hours of the morning so he could share his...

    You Choose the Coverage

    The last few months have seen a shortage of guests for discussions of new releases. The specialty shows seem pretty popular, and the MOTM usually draws enthusiasts, but new films are tricky. In an effort to meet the needs of the community, for the next few months we will only be covering one new release a month. It seems reasonable that you choose what you want to talk about. Between now and the end of May, you can vote in the two polls...

    Lambcast #685 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3

    Get ready to exercise your tear glands, the final chapter in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy ha hit theater screens, and it hits our cast of guests this week as well. There is plenty of emotional turmoil, or is it manipulation in this edition? Maybe you should check before you see the movie.

    Of course it is not all sadness and gloom, this is after all the franchise that made...

    Lambcast #684  Blind Spot Alley

    This week we travel down a dark passage, where our vision is limited and only occasionally does a shaft of light guide us. This is the second instalment of “Blind Spot Alley” , where our guests reveal the things they haven’t seen, finally saw, and also wished they hadn’t seen.

    We go four rounds of Blind Spots, self disclosing our ignorance of some films, many of which others would be surprised we missed. All...
