    Lambcast #650   Beast

    The end of the summer brings us a man vs. nature film, and a LAMB community that is apparently on vacation somewhere. Only Lisa Leaheey was willing to go on safari with Richard this week, but we bagged a big cat and have the trophy ready to display here on the LAMB. 

    Idris Elba stars as a recently widowed Doctor, who had separated from his sick wife and must find a way to reconnect with his teen daughters who just lost their...

    Lambcast #649  Princess Mononoke  MOTM

    Studio Ghibli makes an appearance on the LAMBcast with Hayao Miyazaki’s spectacular success “Princess Mononoke”. When it was first released in Japan, it set box office records and toppled E.T. from the throne of Japanese box office champion. Although it’s reign was short (it was Replaced as the top box office film in Japan by Titanic, just a few months later) Princess Mononoke was influential in making animation a...

    LAMBcast #648   Bullet Train

    Mindless action, intriguing characters, exotic locals and fast moving trains, does that sound like fun to you? It sure did to our guests this week who all had generally good things to say about the latest film from action director David Leitch. It certainly doesn’t hurt when your leading man is Brad Pitt, fresh from therapy and ready to take on gangsters with a new non-aggressive approach, let’s see how that works out. ...

    LAMBcast #646   NOPE

    The biggest horror film release in the Summer, and we could only manage to get one guest to connect with the show. Fortunately that guest was the ever reliable Lisa Leaheey, who in addition to always being able to count on, she is a horror junkie, so we let the right one in. Two of our guests looked up and made eye contact and, well, …you know.

    Jordan Peele has released his third horror feature, and although...

    Lambcast #645   Stand By Me  MOTM

    This month, Lisa Leaheey championed the winner of the MOTM Poll and she had her reasons. Some of you don’t go in the water because of “Jaws”, some of you take baths instead of showers because of “Psycho”. It looks like Lisa will be avoiding county fairs because of this movie, which traumatized her early on in life.

    “Stand By Me” is the beloved coming of age film from Director Rob Reiner...

    Lambcast #644   Thor  Love and Thunder

    It has only been two months since the last MCU film was released in theaters, and we will have to wait twice as long for the next one coming in November, but this week we have something new in the series. “Thor Love and Thunder” is a stand alone film, with minimal ties to an overarching storyline, at least for the moment. Those clever producers at Disney will almost certainly find a way to work it into a timeline and plot twist...

    Lambcast #642   Elvis

    It’s been eight years since director Baz Luhrmann provided us with a feature film, his last being “The Great Gatsby” in 2013. This year, his new film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to a thunderous ovation and set the stage for high expectations. It’s time to find out if the audience was merely being excessively polite or if the movie deserves the hype. Did it leave us “all shook up” or “looking...

    Lambcast #641 Cléo from 5 to 7 MOTM

    When June rolls around each year, the LAMB makes an effort to ensure that we have not neglected the work of female directors. As time marches on, there is fortunately less and less chance of that happening, since women have made great strides in the directing field, including films in the MCU, DCEU and the Major Academy Award categories in the last few years. We don’t want to let up however, and there are always women from the past who...
