    I had previously alluded to there being a so-called LAMBcast Summer Series.  Over the past few months, we’ve covered Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Fast & Furious 6, and Man of Steel.  Finally, we’ve come to the end, with Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up to 2009’s surprise blockbuster District 9.  Elysium is set in a similar world and time and covers themes not all...

    Who is Cumberbatch playing?  Will there be more cameos from the original series’ cast members?  What’s up with Alice Eve?  To Spock or not to Spock?  And seriously, does J.J. Abrams have it out for San Francisco?  These questions and many more were tackled on episode 168, in which Dylan, Justin, Jessica, Jay and Sebastian discussed the sequel to the 2009 megahit in detail.

    Also on tap:

    LAMBcast #150: Best of 2012

    Strap yourselves in.

    Lindsay, Jessica, Nick, Justin, and Dylan gathered round the campfire to rattle off their Top 5 films of 2012, and it’s an epic.  As if that weren’t enough, we even threw in some special awards for key films/scenes/actors/etc.  It’s a fun show that covers a surprisingly wide array of films…made even wider with Nick’s compulsion to name every honorable mention in his list of 400 films...

    #LAMBoard Update June

    Hey there, sorry for this late June addition of the LAMBoard. By the way this LAMBoard is from now on automatic updated from the new LAMBtable courtesy of Bonjour Tristesse. So this is a feature that won’t be slacking from now on!

    I’m happy to see a fellow Swede topping the charts for June (I think its a first in Swedish LAMB history). Other than that we are down to three generic ones in the chart which is awesome. Make...

    #LAMMY2012 Tie Breaker Jessica 10 vs Fogs’ 10!

    The LAMMY final poll is now closed its been a fun ride but it isn’t actually over yet! The category of Best New LAMB actually ended up being tied between The Velvet Cafe and Fogs Moviereviews.

    So I’ve actually contacted all the LAMBs that voted for the three other nominees, Public Transportation Snob, The Droid You are Looking For and Cinematic Corner to have them choose between Jessica and Fogs’.

    LAMBcast #112: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    My apologies to Jessica, Tom, Steve, and Nick – they’ve probably almost forgotten that we even recorded this episode, it feels so long since we did it (if some of the Rants or Raves seem a bit outdated, now you know why).  Anyway, our feature discussion is one that can’t grow moldy, as we each took a look back at a recent viewing that we wished to discuss.  On top of that, we present you with one of the lengthier and more...

    PLUG: #Filmspanarna

    Hey there, Its your household Shepherd here with a plug. As some may know me and Jessica have started up a monthly film blogger meetup in Stockholm.

    Last saturday we had our third gathering focusing around The Hunger Games that we saw on the afternoon and then we went out for food and drinks.

    When we watch films together like this we have started our own blogathon on the film by the participating members. So if you spot this...

    LAMBcast #105: Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?

    Nick oversees one of our favorite shows to do, and as it turns out, just about everyone was on the same page (wait’ll you get to the Rants section). Also on hand were Steve, Dan Heaton, Stevee (making a return to the show after some time off) and first-time LAMBcaster Jessica of The Velvet Cafe, making this the most international show we’ve had to date, with LAMBs from three continents present and accounted for. I look forward to...
