    MOTM/LAMBcast #149: Night of the Comet

    The Princess BrideWatchmenDawn of the Dead?  Big films, you might say?  Night of the Comet can’t hear you.  Kristen chose this barely-seen apocalyptic zombie sci-fi-comedy and it tore up the competition.  The question is, is it underseen/underloved or justly forgotten?

    Before we get to the links, here’s the IMDb summary for the film, for those that aren’t familiar with...

  • LAMBcast #148: Actor Career Draft – Tom Hanks

    LAMBcast #148: Actor Career Draft – Tom Hanks

    Multiple Oscar winner.  Box office champion.  Bosum Buddy.  And now…LAMBcast Career Draft subject.  You’re welcome, Tom Hanks!

    One thing I can say for sure is that, despite starring in fewer films overall (and I’m probably stating the obvious here), Hanks’ career – or at least 30 films’ worth of it – is vastly better than that of our last draft subject, Bruce Willis.  In that draft, I...

    “This….is…LAMBpardy!”

    Now entering the studio are today’s contestants…

    First up is the five-time champion, from Man, I Love Films…Dylan Fields.  Dylan like long walks in a mall and dining at Red Lobster.  He one day dreams of flying into a tree.  Our first challenger is Jason (Jay in LAMBcast world) Cluitt of Life Vs. Film.  Jay takes pictures of squirrels in his spare time and once...

    LAMBcast #146: Franchise Look-back: A Nightmare on Elm Street

    As I mention during the show, the next time we do a franchise look-back, we’re scaling back.  From our humble beginnings with Alien and Jurassic Park, we’ve grown to cover six films with the last look-back in Rocky, and now a whopping seven films (which could have potentially been nine had I not capped us at New Nightmare) with an in-depth look at the Elm Street series.  In...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #145: Children of Men

    They say the sixth time’s the charm, right?  Proof that perseverance pays off, Ryan Fernand of Lord of the Films submitted Children of Men to the MOTM poll once again for December and it finally paid off.  Then, after all that time, it wasn’t even close, as his choice had more than twice as many votes as the next closest film.  The 2006 sci-fi drama starring Clive Owen was pretty much universally loved by critics and movie...

    LAMBcast #144: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Well, this took forever for me to get around to posting, for no good reason.  My apologies to the participants.  Thankfully, this being a top 5 episode, it’s timeless (or something). 

    Anyway, Nick, Kristen, Todd and Dylan got together for the latest edition of this LAMBcast favorite, in which we each came to the table with our own unique top 5 list.  This time, it varied from family horror-dramas to interestingly quirky...

    LAMBcast #143: Bring a Discussion Topic

    What’s better than one feature discussion?  How about five of ’em?  We revisited something done a few months back (to successful results, I’d say) with “Bring A Discussion Topic,” in which each LAMBcaster comes to the table with a question or pressing matter to them.  We then spend a few minutes discussing each item before moving on to the next, giving a good variety of thoughts to the show, with the added...

    LAMBcast #142: Last LAMB Standing – Ultimate Edition
    After nearly 150 episodes and 250 games of Last LAMB Standing, I thought it was time that we crowned the one, true Champion. Doing so turned out to be harder than anticipated, however, as a number of cancellations and/or unavailable parties dwindled the number of players (excluding me, as I chose to solely play host) went from six to three. Nevertheless, it was still a battle, featuring three of the best out there in Stevee, Rachel, and...

    LAMBcast #141: Skyfall

    Last week, it was the 16th entry in the James Bond franchise, Licence to Kill, featured as the prior MOTM; this month, the 23rd (and, of course, most recent) entry, Skyfall, taking the center stage of the LAMBcast.  To make things even more fitting, we even got a Brit to handle the hosting duties, as Simon Columb made his return to the show to preside over the festivities.  He was joined by Bond expert Fogs, as well as...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #140: Licence to Kill

    It seemed only fitting that, after a hard-fought battle against The Princess Bride, the 16th entry in the James Bond series, Licence to Kill, won out in the last MOTM poll.  It turned out to be a film of discovery for several of us on the accompanying LAMBcast – some continued to love it, some not so much, but it’s fair to say we all learned a bit more Bond history: why this film might have been received so...

    LAMBcast #139: Celebrating the LAMB’s 5th Birthday
    In this time of celebration and rebirth, I thought it only fitting to reflect back on the LAMB for a bit. To talk about how it all began, where it's been, what's gone right and maybe wrong, and where we might be going. On the show: Dylan Fields, Nick Powell, Kristen Lopez, Pat McDonnell, and Joel Burman, with special messages from Jessica, Fogs, Nostra, Candice, Branden and Andina....

    LAMBcast #138: Seven Psychopaths

    Martin McDonagh kind of caught cinephiles off-guard with his first feature film, In Bruges, the Colin Farrell-Brendan Gleeson-starring crime action comedy (fun fact: nearly every film on IMDB lists those genres).  It served as a career renaissance of sorts for Farrell, so their re-teaming for another crime action comedy – this time with an enhanced cast – certainly had many of us foaming at the...
