It’s Episode 21 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. Apologies for the delay! Cal is barely back from the capital and has to see a Tim Burton film (and we know how that went down last time) as we do an animated feature double-bill of “Frankenweenie” and the latest “Madagascar” instalment. Pete has Polish and French films to offer in the shape of “The Winner” and “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” while Cal opted for more martial arts fodder in the action-heavy “Flying Swords of Dragon Gate.” Discussions of Hitchcock, Jessica Chastain, and animated shorts take place before a mild disagreement about “The Hurt Locker” threatens to curtail things. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into a Tippi vs. Alfred-style stand-off…
