    LAMBcast #131: Actor Career Draft – Bruce WIllis

    News flash: unless you’re a character actor with a long filmography or your name happens to be Sam Jackson, odds are good that if you’re selected as the subject of one of these career drafts, we’re gonna make your career look pretty bad.  You wouldn’t think that rattling off 15 movies (much less 30) from a 30-year career without getting to anything too embarrassing would be all that difficult, but clearly, it is, a...

    LAMBcast #126: Bring A Discussion Topic

    It was high time we tried something a little new, so for episode 126, we eschewed our traditional “feature discussion” in favor of several mini-discussions, in which each participant brought a topic to the table, giving us a wide variety of conversations.  On hand was your Shepherd Joel, Alan, Bubbawheat, Dylan, and joining us for the first time, Andrew Crump of A Constant Visual Feast.

    (By the way, I apologize in advance...

    LAMBcast addendum: Vote on our Actor’s Career Draft!

    I was going to wait a few days to post this as a means to incentivize people to listen to the show prior to seeing and voting on our picks, but with the LAMMY nominations included in episode #117, I’m not exactly sure I really need to worry about that.  With over 200 downloads already, it’s safe to say that most of you have heard it…that is, unless you skipped right over the Cruise Draft and went straight to the...

    LAMBcast #117: Actor’s Career Draft (Tom Cruise)…oh, and the LAMMY nominations!

    Should I even bother to pretend that more than half of this show’s audience cares about anything other than the fact that it includes the LAMMY nominations?  Let’s not pretend.  So yes, while we’d love it if you stuck around and became a lifelong fan of the show (and of LAMB-produced podcasts, in general), I know the score.  So do try to enjoy our goofy draft of Tom Cruise movies (I’ll post the poll mentioned in the...

    LAMBcast #98: Melancholia

    Stunning visuals. Parent/child dynamics. A controversial director pulling an award-winning performance out of his lead. An end result that received wildly divergent reactions from viewers, from the many claiming “masterpiece” to the perhaps-not-quite-as-many screaming “terrible!”

    Oh, and Melancholia is probably like The Tree of Life in any number of other ways as well. Bet you saw that coming a mile away, not...

    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...

    PLUG: The Great Movie Project

    Hi, Fellow LAMBs,

    Just because my movie-a-day project is coming to an end, it doesn’t mean I’m going to start slacking on my blog. I’m looking to expand my experience with classic films, and I’d like your help. I’m looking for suggestions, close to 100 suggestions, actually, since my thought is that in 2012, I’ll be watching 100 classic films. It can be color or black and white, any language or country of origin, and any...

    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...

    LAMBcast #83: David Cronenberg

    In honor of the recent Director’s Chair blog-a-thon celebrating his catalog, the latest LAMBcast takes a look at the work of David Cronenberg, film by film. First-time host James walked Joel, Dan Heaton and first-time LAMBcaster Alan through the eccentric Canadian’s film, and it might surprise you to learn which is the group’s collective favorite. (I’d say “be gentle” to James, but he did a pretty great job...

    PLUG: The Great Movie Project
    World in Film Blogathon

    A list of seven movies: one that is filmed, set, or produced in each continent. So, the list should include one film each from Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America. Include a sentence or two explaining why it was picked (and “it was the only one I could find” sums up MY pick for Antarctica pretty nicely). Selections can be any language, genre, or theme....

    Rating: PG-13

    What is the main focus of your site?
    My friends have been asking me what I’m watching for years. This is just a way for them to get that information on their own. Occasionally, this works as a means of self-discovery, but mostly it’s just fun.
