It’s Episode 5 of In the Mood for Podcast, a weekly podcast by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Peter Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. This week’s podcast is an under-the-wire Spidey special, which well and truly spans the moral spectrum. We make our way from the goody two-shoes of superheroes to the more lurid members of Texan trailer-trash in William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe,” taking time out to discuss our top five films from the first half of 2012, and our favourite performances. 

Discussed on the podcast: 

Opening Segment: Review of Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spiderman,” and a discussion about its relevance as a franchise reboot. [1:45-20:25]

Reviews of this week’s theatrical releases, here and across the pond: 

  • “Friends with Kids”
  • “Your Sister’s Sister”
  • “Jofyul Noise”
  • “Killer Joe”
  • “Beloved”


Closing Segment: Our review of 2012 so far, with our top five films and favourite performances. [1:00:40-1:17:35]

Intro Music: Kula Shaker, “Start All Over”
Outro Music: Arcade Fire: “Modern Man”
