Lambcast 1989 Film Draft

Please take a moment to go to the poll on the LAMB site and vote for my slate of films.

While I did not get my first choice, I think I have the most solid collection of films of any people on the podcast.

  • Field of Dreams, the Kevin Costner male weepy is a classic and has some terrific actors in it.
  • Licence to Kill, Timothy Dalton’s second and last outing as James Bond. A Great villain and some tortured 007 personality.
  • When Harry Met Sally, even if you don’t like Romantic comedies, you will like this movie that was the template for the 1990s romantic comedies that followed. Nora Ephron was awesome.
  • Glory, IMHO the Best Film of 1989.
  • UHF, a silly comedy but it stars “Weird” Al Yankovic.

February Blues

This has never been a great month for new releases but there are several films I would like to have seen but simply did not have time to get to. I hope that you have been visiting with the podcast that I co-host, because that has been where most of my movie activity has been in the last few weeks.

As a birthday gift, I was able to choose the films to be considered for MOTM on the Lambcast. The Community selected Tombstone, so I hosted that show and you can catch up with it here:

We then embarked on an ambitious year long journey to cover all of the “official” James Bond films before the release next year of “Bond 25”. Loyal readers know of my obsession with 007 and you can hear it being indulged, along with proof that obsession can be genetic here:

Frankly, I was so underwhelmed by the Academy Awards nominations this year, that for the first time ever since it began, we skipped out on the Best Picture Showcase. I did however provide some discussion on the awards on the Lambcast Oscar Prediction show. It’s sell by date is rapidly approaching so if you want to hear before the results are announced, you better hurry.

Finally, I was the featured guest on the sister podcast on the Lamb, Acting School 101. Our subject for February {The Subjects celebrate a birthday in the month that they are discussed} was Laura Dern. My friend MovieRob hosts the show and we had a nice time talking about this fine actress, in a relatively short show [At least in comparison to the Lambcast].

This should bring you up to speed with the rather lazy month’s work. There will be an upcoming podcast on the “How to Train Your Dragon” Franchise coming later this week. I will be hosting and I will put it up so i have one more entry in February at least.
