    Way back in February 2013, the first official LAMB Meet-Up occurred in Vegas, and was attended by in total 14 LAMB members (including partners). This year the location of Chicago was picked – mainly because it seems a heck of a lot of LAMBs live in the Chicago area – and over the course of the weekend far more LAMB members attended. As such, it felt right to hold a podcast to mark such a momentous...

    To be completely honest, an episode devoted to Machete‘s sequel was probably not needed.  I put it on the schedule largely due to nostalgic reasons, as we had an early LAMBcast episode devoted to the first film that was great fun for all involved, and I figured that the participants of this show would perhaps have an equally good time with Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse follow-up.  Did they, and/or would you have a good...

    I don’t want to give anything away just yet, but can we talk for a minute about FAMILY?  The LAMBcast FAMILY wishes to invite you to listen to episode 169, in which we discuss Justin Lin’s fourth entry in the Fast & Furious series, and we welcome you to invite you aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, grandparents, Diesels and Ludacrisses (Ludacri?).  In other words, we’re having a FAMILY reunion to...

    LAMBcast #137: Argo

    We didn’t have a LAMBcast on the schedule for last weekend, but as you may or may not know, Tom Clift made his way from Australia about six weeks ago to North America and has been catching up with LAMBs and other movie bloggers all over this continent ever since.  Earlier this week, he made his way to Phoenix to sleep on my couch for a few days, and Argo had been a tentatively scheduled show once upon a time, and we’d...

    LAMBcast #118: Brian Roan vs. the World

    From the onset, this seemed like a bad idea – one podcast, eight people.  Our previous high for participants on a LAMBcast was six, and my general line of thinking is that any more than five leaves the potential for listener overload, particularly if the listener is not familiar with all of the voices that they’re hearing.  But the thought of throwing seven fans of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World against one hater was just...

    LAMBcast #101: Top 10s for 2011

    Fans of Rants and Raves of the Week, I assure you they are not going anywhere. However, with our special interview show coming at #100 and with this, our Top 10s show at #101, let’s just say that they’ve taken a short hiatus. That was planned from the start, as this was expected to be a longish show, and it was. Dylan, Nick, Fredo, Dan Heaton and LAMBcast newbie Lindsay Street of French Toast Sunday were all on hand to count down...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #97: Dead Man

    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 #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.

    Also on tap:

    * Rants of the Week

    LAMBcast #87

    Yes, I’m still behind, and I apologize. This episode is posted a few days late and I’ve got to get the next one up in time for Saturday’s MOTM. The pressure! 😉

    Anyway, episode 87 was one of our increasingly rare “one-off” episodes where host Nick talked to Courtney, Alan, and Fredo about films that they love that are pretty much unloved or unseen by the rest of the world. So you might call them guilty...
