    Help celebrate the LAMB’s 5th birthday!

    As you may or may not know, the LAMB turns five years old on Halloween (10/31/12).  I’m not sure what tricks Joel might have up his sleeve to celebrate the occasion (I know he’s hard at work on a site re-design, but I doubt it’ll be ready in time), but we are planning on marking the milestone with a special LAMBcast (to be recorded this Sunday).

    This is where I’d like for you to get involved. ...

    LAMBcast #137: Argo

    We didn’t have a LAMBcast on the schedule for last weekend, but as you may or may not know, Tom Clift made his way from Australia about six weeks ago to North America and has been catching up with LAMBs and other movie bloggers all over this continent ever since.  Earlier this week, he made his way to Phoenix to sleep on my couch for a few days, and Argo had been a tentatively scheduled show once upon a time, and we’d...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #136: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    [Note: I asked the MOTM Champion Justin if he’d be interested in writing the intro for this post.  Here’s what he delivered.] 

    Every month at the LAMB, we have a poll that establishes our Movie of the Month. The winner is watched and discussed on the LAMBcast by a few of our members. Sometimes the winner that we review together is serious (last month’s silent German film Metropolis),...

    LAMBcast #135: Looper

    I’m not sure if you’re aware of this or not, but we record the LAMBcast (usually) about a week before it gets posted.  You ought to know where I’m going with this…that’s right – merely by listening, you are traveling back in time.  Back to an era before you had even considered listening to it because you didn’t even know when it was going to be posted!  Meanwhile, back when we recorded it, we had...

    LAMBcast #134: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Sometimes we play serious games (LAMBpardy).  Sometime we get serious with our Movies of the Month.  Sometimes we get goofy with things like actor’s career drafts.  And sometimes we just like to talk about what we’ve been watching lately.  This is one of those times, as I was joined by Nick, Todd, and Max to go over some of our recent viewings.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants and Raves of the Week
    * Last LAMB...

    LAMBcast #133: LAMBpardy! #7


    Once more, Kai puts on his Alex Trebek hat to play host for our version of Jeopardy.  Back in the champ chair is Dylan, this time challenged by Justin and Nick R..  Did they take his title? Listen and find out!

    LAMBpardy episopdes are a semi-regular feature of the LAMBcast, so if you’d like to be a player in the future, keep an eye out over at the Forums, as demand is high...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #132: Metropolis

    Can I just say that I love the eclectic group of films that have been chosen as the Movies of the Month by all the voters out there since we rejuvenated the MOTM feature in March of last year?  We’ve had critically-acclaimed films like Inglourious Basterds and The Shining, we’ve had cult films like The Evil Dead and Bronson, we’ve had foreign films (Oldboy, The Third Man), a...

    LAMBcast #131: Actor Career Draft – Bruce WIllis

    News flash: unless you’re a character actor with a long filmography or your name happens to be Sam Jackson, odds are good that if you’re selected as the subject of one of these career drafts, we’re gonna make your career look pretty bad.  You wouldn’t think that rattling off 15 movies (much less 30) from a 30-year career without getting to anything too embarrassing would be all that difficult, but clearly, it is, a...

    LAMBcast #130: Franchise look-back: Rocky

    Anyone who’s heard me wax poetic about advice or guidelines or just my personal preferences for podcasts in general knows that, in general, I’m not a fan of superlong podcasts.  I try to keep this show around the hour mark, though I realize that with five participants on just about every show, that’s pretty unrealistic.  I regularly give guest hosts like Nick and Jason a hard time before they record a show since they have...

  • The next MOTM will be…

    The next MOTM will be…

    It’s safe to say that the latest MOTM poll turned into a blowout.  Deny Everything’s choice of Show Me Love took a commanding early lead, and Flights, Tights and Movie Nights’ Robocop selection made a deent run, but Metropolis, championed by 100 Years of Movies ran away with the vote, taking 29% of the 165 votes (nice turnout!).  As such, Pat of 100 Years has won a chair in the LAMBcast in which...

    LAMBcast #129: Most Anticipated for the Rest of 2012

    I’m not sure if you’re aware of this or not, but there are literally a crapton of possibly-excellent films (or, at the least, very anticipated) on the schedule for the rest of 2012.  Fortunately for you, we here at the LAMBcast have an annual show on the schedule in which we look forward and count down just which ones make the “most anticipated” cut for us.  So listen in as Nick, Sebastian, Dylan and two...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #128: Battle Royale

    Is it just me, or is it strange how the discussions of certain book-to-film adaptations seem to center on the quality of adaptation rather than the quality of film; that the act of the adaptation is so inseparable from the film that it’s impossible to ignore?  Think about The Hunger Games recently, or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; although certainly not all film bloggers read these books prior to seeing the films, it does...
