TSAJFS: 12/12/2010 Monsters/The American/Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

You lucky things! This week we have three new releases to discuss! New releases a-plenty! Jo watched The American, Simon watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows whilst both Jo and Simon watched Monsters, the small-film-that could ... costing only £500,000 and making millions!

The usual film news includes discussion of the winners at the British Independent Film Awards whilst we run through the UK Box-Office (damn you Time Out for not updating your London Box-Office in time!) and discuss two mechanical trailers: Real Steel and Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon.



Blog of the week is the four-years old Blog Cabins, run by Mr Cabin or everyones favourite Fletch.

Facebook fan of the week is Mr Mike McKenney who runs his own blog, Destroy Apathy (though he hasn't written there for 8 months...),  but more importantly, writes for the Films and Festivals blog too.

Finally, Twitter-er is Charlie Brooker, TV-critic and not a big fan of The American.


The vast majority of music is from the soundtrack to Monsters by Jon Hopkins - an easy find on itunes. Though, the music sprinkled around the Potter review is (new to the potter franchise) Alexandre Desplat's score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Not to forget the little bit of Bon Jovi, Livin' on a Prayer ... (Greatest Hits now available!)

We are also on Twitter  and Facebook.

  1. I hate Bay's films, but the Transformers 3 teaser looks great visually.

  2. C'mon! I still haven't seen Transformers 2 so I don't know exactly how much I am invested in the franchise.

  3. Hey - guess what? I'm finally caught up! (Until you post a new ep this weekend, that is.) Anyway, coming back to comment on this one because I just wanted to say thanks for not only making me the Blogger of the Week, but for the many kind words. Also, you know you're welcome back any time on the old LAMBcast, and I'll make sure I'm there this time (it was unavoidable last time - sorry). I'd be glad to shimmy the schedule about if need be to get you on as well.

  4. Fletch, i shall plan ahead and ensure my name is assigned to a LAMBcastin the near future. Twas a good event! But yeah, you have enough on your hands the moment (baby poo for one) that i can appreciate difficulties!
