    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #97: Dead Man

    To steal a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which will come up on the LAMBcast devoted to this MOTM, it’s quite possible that Jim Jarmusch, and this film in particular, are ” Too weird to live, and too rare to die.” Dead Man is some kind of neo-Western, a postmodern breed of film that’s too strange and slow perhaps for most audiences, but is music to the heart of so many others. Filled with striking images and...

    LAMBcast #96: The Muppets

    I say every week that the LAMBcast loves having new blood on the show, and I mean it. This week, we get two more newbies to the show, in the form of Brian of and Dan of Fog’s (that’s pronounced ‘foges’) Movie Reviews. In the coming weeks, we’ll have even more, including (le gasp) some more women! You guys keep getting interested in the show, we’ll keep finding ways to get you all...

    LAMBcast #95: Holiday Films

    A few apologies on tap: first, this is being posted a bit later than I’d hoped, but I’ve been swamped and this is the soonest I could get to it. Second, as you’ll hear, there’s a bit of background noise throughout this show. Most of the time, it’s just that – background – which is cool by me (I used to love it on the old Simon & Jo Show), but occasionally, it gets a bit loud. But everyone was a...

    LAMBcast #94: Woody Allen

    Just in time for tomorrow’s latest addition to the LAMBs in the Director’s Chair series, the LAMBcast tackles the career of Woody Allen. Dylan, Sam, Dan Heaton, Alex and newcomer Danny Reid dug deep and attempted to rattle around the brain of the neurotic writer-director-actor-institution. We talked up and down the guy so much that we skipped out on the usual format and ditched Rants and Raves of the Week, though of course we...

    LAMBcast #93: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Not a lot of exposition needed here: Joel, Sam, Nick, Jason and Dylan got together to discuss their recent viewings. It’s a fun show – we know it, you know it, and there it is.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants of the Week
    * Raves of the Week
    * Last LAMB Standing

    If you’re interested, you too can be a LAMBcaster – we love new blood! For more information on the LAMBcast, check out the topic...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #92: Moon

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #92: Moon

    Duncan Jones’ 2009 sci-fi drama Moon kind of crept up on audiences, but they quickly fell in love with its intimacy, it’s ambition, and its inventiveness. Made for a mere $5MM, its setting and effects gave the impression of a much larger-budgeted film, and Jones’ direction combined with a career-defining performance by Sam Rockwell (in a career seemingly chock full of new peaks) made it an Oscar hopeful and surefire cult...

    LAMBcast #91: LAMBpardy! #3

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

    Kai lost last time, but was kind enough to return as host of the game so that I might play. I squared off against Dan Heaton and the reigning champ Rachel. Hats off to Kai for coming up with questions (er, answers…whatever) that were not too hard and too not easy (the main complaint from the previous entries...

    LAMBcast #90: The Ides of March

    George Clooney. Ryan Gosling. Paul Giamatti. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Jeffrey Wright. Evan Rachel Wood. Director Clooney was able to gather together an all-star cast for his political drama about idealism and honesty, but was he able to make an all-star film? How important (and rare) are films such as this. Those questions and more were tackled by Fredo, Sam, host Dylan, and LAMBcast newbie Alex of And So It Begins…

    LAMBcast #89: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Obscure zombies, memorable births, embarrassing theatrical trips, and standalone superheroes…in other words, it was high time for another Roll Your Own Top 5 episode, and I must say, the LAMBcasters came through with another batch of interesting lists. On hand for the shenanigans this time around were Dylan, Nick, Dan Heaton and Fredo.

    Poll Results; New Poll

    How very insightful these latest poll results were. Aside from the majority who admitted to not listening to the LAMBcast, all recurring features found equal amounts of love. Make of that what you will.

    With Halloween less than two weeks away, I wanna know: What is your favorite decade for horror films?…

  • Last LAMB Standing: Standings through Episode 88

    Last LAMB Standing: Standings through Episode 88

    For those unfamiliar with the LAMBcast, at the end of the show each week, we play a couple games called Last LAMB Standing. It’s a very simple idea: the game’s host names an actor or actress, and the players cycle through said actor’s films until they can no longer name any, at which point they are out. The last player left is the victor.

    The task of producing the stats for the game has been requested of me for some...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #88: Bronson

    Tom Hardy has been acting in high-profile films since the early 2000s (Black Hawk Dawn, Star Trek: Nemesis), but it wasn’t until 2008 when he made a name for himself, first in Guy Ritchie’s “comeback” film RockNRolla, and subsequently in the film of the day, Bronson. The sixth film from Danish director Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive) is, well…have a look at the plot synopsis from IMDb, as it might be the most...
