    MOTM/LAMBCAST #179: DOUBLE INDEMNITY

    Wanna win the Movie of the Month poll? 

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a lock – particularly not when there’s more than one film meeting the criteria – but choosing a film from pre-1965 seems to be a pretty solid strategy.  I also wouldn’t go so far as to say that that was the strategy Dan Heaton had in mind when he chose Double Indemnity as his film to Champion, but the results...

  • LAMBCAST #178: DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE – RICHARD LINKLATER

    LAMBCAST #178: DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE – RICHARD LINKLATER

    Believe it or not, it’s been over 80 episodes since our last Director Retrospective (we really need to do these more often).  That last one was for Woody Allen on episode 94.  When the idea came up/was rejuvenated to do another one, I had a very specific set of criteria I was looking for the director to fit, and Richard Linklater was one of the very few – if not the only one – that could have fit the bill. 

    I...

  • Actor’s Career Draft Poll Results: Nic Cage

    Actor’s Career Draft Poll Results: Nic Cage

    The results are in and the people have spoken! On episode #176 of The LAMBcast , we held our fourth Actor’s Career Draft, in which Nolahn, Nick, Jay, Todd, and Dylan cycled through Nic Cage’s, ahem, eclectic filmography, selecting films of his to be on our “teams” for our own mythical film festivals.  It was filled with great films, terrible films, greatly terrible films and terribly great films, all (or at least...

    LAMBCAST #177: GET TO KNOW YOUR LAMBCASTERS

    Sometimes we need to take a step back from reviewing films or talking about what we’ve been watching lately or playing LAMBpardy to just talk amongst ourselves.  To learn a bit more about each other, outside of our love of films.  With that said, I present to you the second edition of Get To Know Your LAMBcasters, where I was joined by Joel, Joe, Kristen and first-timer Robert Zerbe of To the Escape Hatch.  We talked about swimming...

  • Who won the Nic Cage Career Draft?

    Who won the Nic Cage Career Draft?

    Last week on the LAMBcast, we had another in our Actor Career Draft series, this time on the man/myth/legend/joke that is Nic Cage. We had a ton of fun – notably with not knowing which directions to take with a career as bonkers as Cage’s. There were twists, turns, and other special quirks to this draft, something I felt was fitting given our subject (be sure to listen to the episode – I also had a ton of fun with...

  • LAMBCAST #176: ACTOR CAREER DRAFT – NIC CAGE (!)

    LAMBCAST #176: ACTOR CAREER DRAFT – NIC CAGE (!)

    What can you say – nay, what do you need to say about Nic Cage?  It’s a good bet that volumes of texts will be written about the man within a few decades.  College courses taught about the man.  Religions possibly formed (or destroyed?) by his aura.  He’s basically Star Wars in the form of a singluar actor. 

    As such, it was only fitting that he be the subject of one of our actor career drafts. ...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #175: BULLY

    Larry Clark is perhaps best known for the 1995 film Kids, which launched the careers of quite a few people: Rosario Dawson, Chloe Sevingy, Harmony Korrine, and Clark himself.  But his 2001 film Bully – not to be confused with the 2011 documentary of the same name – is a similar piece of filmmaking, dealing with the angst and lifestyles of (mostly) teenagers, this time in Florida.  It’s also based on a...

    LAMBCAST #174: BRING A DISCUSSION TOPIC

    It’s one of my favorite episode types – and not just because it requires less work on the host’s behalf.  It’s Bring a Discussion Topic, in which each participant comes to the virtual table with something they hope will spur an engaging discussion.   Sometimes they’re duds, sometimes they’re great…and in this episode, I gotta say, they’re pretty damn good.  Oh hand for the shenanigans (have...

    LAMBCAST #173: WHATCHA BEEN WATCHING LATELY?

    Such a simple question…and yet it yields such diverse answers.  Such an easy question…and yet, when posed to five movie geeks, it becomes a philosophical conundrum.  The question: what films have you been watching lately, and can you narrow that list down to one to talk about.  One that you (hopefully) are passionate about, one way or the other.  As usual, the question yielded diverse results, brought to you by Dylan, Kai,...

    LAMBCAST #172: MAN OF STEEL

    The LAMBcast’s Summer Series (as it might well be called) is winding down to a close.  We started with what looks to be the summer’s biggest hit, Iron Man 3, stared down the latest Star Trek entry, spent some family time with the Fast & Furious gang, and now revisit the dormant Superman series, as we take an in-depth look at Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.  On hand for the show...

    MOTM/LAMBCAST #171: DEAD ALIVE

    Long before Peter Jackson became known for becoming J.R.R. Tolkien or remaking King Kong, he was that big, hairy fella from New Zealand known for grossout horror comedies.  His third feature was 1992’s Dead Alive , a film that wasn’t received all that well two decades ago but is now seen as a cult classic.  The gang from French Toast Sunday championed the film after barely losing out to American...

    LAMBCAST #170: ASK THE LAMB #2

    I believe the proper nomenclature is as follows:

    *ahem*

    If you got a problem, yo, we’ll solve it.

    That’s the motto for the Ask the LAMB feature here, a segment that finds its host Jason Soto trolling Yahoo Answers for truly insane questions. It can bring some seriously credible answers from a wide variety of film bloggers. It can also bring some seriously funny answers. Occasionally, it does both.

    And...
