    LAMBcast #110: The Hunger Games


    Obviously, The Hunger Games needs way more catchphrases, because I’d like to start off this little summary with one of them, but there’s really only one, and it’s way overused as it is.  So I suppose I’ll just say, “I volunteer as, uh, host of the LAMBcast!”

    Anyway, I was joined by Nick, Rachel and Dan as we dissected the blockbuster literary adaptation, from the casting to the...

    LAMBcast #109: Films You Love But Can’t Recommend to Others

    The title more or less says it all for episode 109, doesn’t it.  Be they uncomfortable to sit through (by yourself or with others) or embarassing – whatever the reason, the films that make up the lists we came up with share the titular common trait.  Thanks to Courtney of Big Thoughts From a Small Mind for the topic idea.  Sharing their lists were Dylan, Nick, Brian, Stevee and James.

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #108: Blade Runner

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #108: Blade Runner


    Once again, our Movie of the Month pick comes from the early 80s – specifically 1982, as discussed on the accompanying LAMBcast, a a banner year for sci-fi films the likes of which we probably won’t see again.  The choice this time out is Blade Runner, the Ridley Scott-directed, Harrison Ford-starring ensemble piece that delves into some of man’s largest questions: What does it mean to be human? To...

    LAMBcast #107: Franchise look-back: Alien

    For the 107th episode, we take a step in a new direction and open up a new recurring series for the show, in which we take a look at a popular series from film history.  Over at the LAMB Forums, the participants in the show voted from a number of franchises and the winner was the Alien series.  On hand for the show was host Dylan as well as Nick, Tom, Fogs and newcomer Mark of Green People Soup.

    To commemorate this somewhat...

    LAMBcast #106: Roll Your Own Top 5

    It was a conglomeration of shepherds (and other LAMB luminaries) as the latest LAMBcast found not only host Dylan (founder, former shepherd) but also recently resigned shepherd Rachel and the new boss man Joel on board, as well as Nick and James.  This week, we each rolled our own Top 5s in a wide range of topics, from monkeys to wanted sequels to hidden gems to dystopian films, with a bunch of boobs and penises in between.

  • Alien…Chops?

    by Dylan · Feb 28, 2012 at 12:00 CET · LAMBcast · 5 Comments

    Yep, that’s right.

    We’re starting what may turn into a running series on the LAMBcast, where we occasionally take a look back at a selected franchise of films. Consider this some sort of not-voted-upon addendum to the MOTM. Anyway, our first episode is set to be recorded this weekend. Along with this, Shep. Burman and I thought it would be fun/meaningful to include a one-off “Chops” to go along with...

    LAMBcast #105: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Nick oversees one of our favorite shows to do, and as it turns out, just about everyone was on the same page (wait’ll you get to the Rants section). Also on hand were Steve, Dan Heaton, Stevee (making a return to the show after some time off) and first-time LAMBcaster Jessica of The Velvet Cafe, making this the most international show we’ve had to date, with LAMBs from three continents present and accounted for. I look forward to...

    LAMBcast #104: 2012 Academy Award Predictions

    Once again, we here at the LAMBcast pull out our crystal balls and attempt to predict the winners for the upcoming Oscars. Or at least some of them. Rather than cycle through all 24 categories, we cherry-picked 10 of the big ones to prognosticate, while sprinkling in our commentary on snubs (like, say…Drive?) and thoughts on the production and nomination process along the way. On hand was your host Dylan, as well as LAMBcast regulars...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #103: The Shining

    I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a movie fan, much less a movie blogger, not at least somewhat familiar with The Shining, but I give the IMDb summary every other time, so why not now?

    “A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future. “

    Let’s see...

    LAMBcast #102: LAMBpardy (#4)

    The LAMBcast’s version of America’s Favorite Game Show (or is that Wheel of Fortune? The Price is Right?) is back!

    If you don’t know how this works by now, I’m not sure what I can do to help you there. To recap: I return as the reigning champion, Kai returns as our own Wink Martindale (seriously, he wouldn’t stop winking at me, as we were recording together from my garage), and Joel and Danny came in to...

    LAMBcast #101: Top 10s for 2011

    Fans of Rants and Raves of the Week, I assure you they are not going anywhere. However, with our special interview show coming at #100 and with this, our Top 10s show at #101, let’s just say that they’ve taken a short hiatus. That was planned from the start, as this was expected to be a longish show, and it was. Dylan, Nick, Fredo, Dan Heaton and LAMBcast newbie Lindsay Street of French Toast Sunday were all on hand to count down...

    LAMBcast #100

    The century mark has been reached!

    For this special episode, we abandon our usual format altogether! We make stunning changes to the structure of the show! We challenge the laws of time and space! Or…I gather as many of the founding fathers of the show as possible and we have an informal interview show, catching up on our lives, blogs, and podcasts (or lack thereof). I was joined by: Nick Jobe of Random Ramblings of a...
