    Lambcast #724   DUNE  Part 2

    Welcome back to Arrakis, the one planet in the Universe that supplies the spice mélange, which allows interstellar travel. It’s only other significant export is jihad, and this week the guests on the show spend some time talking about the roots of that second product.

    Lambcast #723  The King of Comedy-February MOTM

    This month’s selection as MOTM came from a list of Blind Spots submitted by the host. A Martin Scorsese flop from 1983, which has grown in stature over the years, “The King of Comedy” starring Robert DeNiro. DeNiro is the frustrated, Rupert Pupkin, obsessed with becoming a comedy great. However, when he confronts his idol, talk show host Jerry Langford, with a plea to perform on Jerry’s show, he is only given the...

    Lambcast #722  Decade Lookback 1991

    Those of you old enough to remember the year 1991, or at least, to have watched the videotapes from that year, will enjoy soaking up some nostalgia vibes this week. Everyone was asked to bring five movies to the show this episode and none of them were films Nominated for Best Picture by the Academy. In fact, you could almost consider this the anti-Oscar show of 1991. The guests this week were more interested in their own opinions than anyone...

    Lambcast #721   Argylle

    This week on the Lambcast we are talking about a new film that opened in theaters rather than streaming. Director Matthew Vaughn has been making spy films for a while now. His film “Layer Cake” was where the EON folks found Daniel Craig to play James Bond. It seems he is pitching a new 007 in his latest film, the frequently linked to the Bond Franchise, Henry Cavill. Whether or not Cavill gets a License to Kill, he has been deeply...

    Lambcast #718 Queen Bees Get a Keeper [Mean Girls 2024 and The Beekeeper]

    Double Duty this week on the Lambcast, as two new releases get our attention, and they could not be directed at more completely different audiences. One film features music and dancing by high school kids, working out their adolescent issues, and the other is filled with violence and mayhem because old people were being taken advantage of. Tina Fey and Jason Statham might never work together in a film, but this weeks episode goes down better...

    Lambcast #716  Last Chance to Catch Up with 2023

    We can’t really keep up with every movie that gets released, but that is especially true in December when big budget holiday releases and specialty Oscar bait, compete for our attention. This week is a free for all, because the six guests and the host, are welcome to talk about any movies that got released in the last six weeks of the year.

    We are saving our Top Ten Lists for the next episode, but some of those films might...

    Lambcast #715  Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget

    You won’t find any bigger fans of the original “Chicken Run” than here on the Lambcast. 200 Episodes ago, it was the MOTM. Tony Cogan and Jay Cluitt both claimed to be the films biggest fan, but it was Tony who pushed the sequel here, over the finish line, to be the new film that we covered this month on the Lambcast. The community chose this over all the other options and the result is here for your...

    Lambcast #714 Anna and the Apocalypse-December MOTM

    That’s right my friends, nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a zombie apocalypse. Of course when you add singing and dancing, it really does feel like a Christmas movie, at least that’s what Howard Casner would argue. As the champion of the film, Howard leads the discussion but frankly, the other guests probably played a part in the movie being selected as well. The Vern just covered it on his own podcast and...
