Lambcast #727 “Spoiler Alert!”

2w ago
Everyone knows that spoilers are irritating to film fans who have not yet seen the movie. Here on the LAMBcast however, most of us have seen these movies so we are not afraid to talk about them, in particular the key elements that might spoil the movie for you. This week’s episode is the antithesis of what we usually try to do here. We are not coy about giving away the ending of a movie, a plot twist or two, or revealing the presence of a character you may not have known was in the film. That is the whole point this week. Howard Casner of “Pop Art” reveals that he has a secret crush on Marle ..read more

The month of April is when we celebrate a franchise in the Movie of the Month Episodes. While there are some movies that deserved a franchise and never got a sequel (The Nice Guys, Dredd and The Shadow could still happen if we wish hard enough), there are plenty of film series where we might wonder, “How did this happen?” We have four film franchises that await your decision, which one will live on as a MOTM Lamb Legend? The voting period will end April 15, so get your votes in now. There will be no lost box of ballots discovered in somebody’s cache after that date. Matthew Simpson from the Aw ..read more

Lambcast #726 Ghostbusters Frozen Empire

There are now five films in the “Ghostbusters” Franchise (that is if you count the 2016 film which is widely dismissed by fans) and the newest one hit theaters this last week. The new cast from “Ghostbusters Afterlife” have moved back to New York City and they have taken up the family business, but not without some complications.  This week our cast of Lambs does some busting of their own, questioning whether the focus of the franchise has shifted and calling into question the consistency of even the legacy characters. We find plenty to be disappointed in, but it turns out that we are al ..read more

The Vern’s choice for Movie of the Month was the winner for March, and he hosted the show on 2016’s “The Neon Demon”. Those of you longtime listeners of the Lambcast know that The Vern enjoys a divisive movie conversation, and that’s exactly what we got with this week’s show. Matthew Simpson from the Awesome Friday Podcast, and James Wilson from Blogging by Cinema Light, joined us for an examination of “Drive” Director Nicolas Winding Refn’s last theatrical film. This slow burn, art-house horror film is beloved by the champion, but there were plenty of dissenting opinions on the show. Is it ..read more

There were four films submitted for MOTM for March, and everyone got some votes. A couple of the films had been talked about on the show, but that was not enough to put them over the top. It takes a dedicated LAMB, willing to use Social Media, to get the kind of support that turned the vote from a close contest to a run-away victory. Congratulations to The Vern of Cinema Recall, his strategy led to a result that will allow him to host the show and revel in his film selection. The MOTM is “The Neon Demon” from Nicolas Winding Refn. Thanks to everyone who submitted a film this month. April’s MO ..read more

Welcome back to Arrakis, the one planet in the Universe that supplies the spice mélange, which allows interstellar travel. It’s only other significant export is jihad, and this week the guests on the show spend some time talking about the roots of that second product. Oh, we of course talk about the movie as well, a film that seems to be living up to everyone’s very high expectations. Three years ago, the first part of Denis Villeneuve’s science fiction vision of the Frank Herbert book, appeared and was incredibly successful at the box office, in spite of being streamed simultaneously on HBO ..read more

Lambcast #723 The King of Comedy-February MOTM
The Large Association of Movie Blogs

This month’s selection as MOTM came from a list of Blind Spots submitted by the host. A Martin Scorsese flop from 1983, which has grown in stature over the years, “The King of Comedy” starring Robert DeNiro. DeNiro is the frustrated, Rupert Pupkin, obsessed with becoming a comedy great. However, when he confronts his idol, talk show host Jerry Langford, with a plea to perform on Jerry’s show, he is only given the run-around. He does not give up, however, but persists in stalking Jerry until he gets what he wants. Eventually he must team up with his psychotic Langford-obsessed friend Masha to ..read more

Those of you old enough to remember the year 1991, or at least, to have watched the videotapes from that year, will enjoy soaking up some nostalgia vibes this week. Everyone was asked to bring five movies to the show this episode and none of them were films Nominated for Best Picture by the Academy. In fact, you could almost consider this the anti-Oscar show of 1991. The guests this week were more interested in their own opinions than anyone else’s and it shows by the diversity of films we talk about. Heather Baxendale Walsh has her own box of Nostalgia to dip into, and Nicole Ayers is looki ..read more
