    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 https://www.doesthedogdie.com/ 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...

    Lambcast # 683  Invasion of the Body Snatchers Franchise MOTM

    The Movie of the Month Lambcast lost a few guests along the way, but that did not deter Howard Casner, the champion of this month’s winner, who has for a second time been victorious in the April Franchise version of this feature. 

    Richard and Howard find lots to talk about concerning Pod People on this Podcast. There are four versions of the story that are based directly on the 1954 novel by Jack Finney. The 1956...

    Lambcast #682   Renfield

    The Lambcast returns after a one week hiatus, and too entice all of you listeners, we fill the show with a couple of the undead and their opinions on the new Nicolas Cage vampire film, “Renfield”. Ninety years after Bela Lugosi, we get a direct sequel of sorts to the most well known of Dracula films.

    Nicolas Cage has always said that there were three fictional characters that he wanted to be able to play on screen....

    LAMBPARDY!

    What’s that behind you? Surely not! No! It can’t be! It’s Lambpardy time!

    After an unintentional hiatus Lambpardy is back, and this time it’s spooky! This is the first show in the third tournament year, and also the first of a mini horror tournament! There are hopefully two more horror-special shows to come, followed by a horror final with the winners of those...

    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...
