    By now most people have already listened to the podcast announcing the nominees so I thought I’d compile a list of the nominees but then I actually saw that someone else had already done it and since we are a blogging community I thought it would actually be appropriate to rather link to Sam’s post instead of doing my own! (a little lazy, I know but I work 24/7 right now so I got to prioritize!)

    HERE’S THE...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #114: Heathers

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #114: Heathers

    Released in 1988, Heathers was not only a product of its time but perhaps a bit ahead of it as well.  The pitch-black comedy starred Winona Ryder (soon to hit the big time with Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands) and Christian Slater (also early in his career) as a pair of young lovers intent on creating some chaos at their high school.  Although it wasn’t a hit at the time, it was a unique enough vision to gain a...

    Brutally Blog Blustering #64 – Duke and the Movies

    It’s Blusterin’ Time!

    If you’re new to this feature or need a refresher, click the label at the bottom of this post and see the previous posts. Otherwise, here are the basics:

    What I do is list a site; you critique it. But here’s the catch: to induce the most honest reactions, don’t leave the comment using your normal alias/login – instead, go anonymous, and be as brutally honest (or...

    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 #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…

    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...

    LAMBcast #86: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    This episode was supposed to be posted sometime last weekend, but instead I decided to have a terrible stomach ache that ended with me getting my appendix cut out on Saturday night.

    All is well, though, and I’m back to deliver to you another gangbusters edition of WBWL, where we cover films from the 60s, 70s, 80s on up through this year. In on this one was myself as host, joined by my co-host Nick, Courtney, Sam, and the Official...

    LAMBcast #82: Roll Your Own Top 5

    Average length of an episode hosted by Dylan: 58 minutes.

    Average length of an episode hosted by Jason: 236 minutes.*

    * All times approximate.

    I kid, of course. Yes, before you get started, you should know that this is a bit of a marathon episode, clocking in at just under two hours (which I frown upon from other weekly podcasts). However, after having listening to most of it in the editing process, I can tell you that...

    LAMBcast #81: Fall/Winter Preview (aka Our Top 5s for the Rest of the Year)

    So many films, so little time. There was some worry early on that there would be overlap with a lot of our individual top fives, but that proved not to really be the case, as there’s a wide array of interesting flicks coming down the pike in the next few months. So many films that (spoiler alert!) not a single person chose either of Spielberg’s flicks or Scorsese’s kids’ movie. And to top it all off, we had another...

    LAMBcast #77: LAMBpardy!

    Will this become another recurring feature/topic/whatever on the LAMBcast? Something tells me it will. We had a ton of fun recording this, and I think you ought to have some fun listening to it as well, as Kai, Jason and Sam attempt to get all the right questions to the answer clues I throw at them (I even had fun coming up with all these silly clues). Can you do better than they would have done?

    We’ll do another LAMBpardy ep in...
