It’s Episode 170 of In the Mood for Podcast!

It’s been four years, but Cal and Pete are finally back together in a bumper two-hour episode that features lots of discussion of the Oscars, and that history-making win for Bong Joon-Ho’s “Parasite”. We reveal our feelings about the film, while Pete gets his statistician head on as we detail some interesting Oscar trends that have emerged in the past decade. Elsewhere, we chat about the length (among many other things) of Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” troubling preconceptions of Renee Zelwegger are tested when we review “Judy,” while we discuss an unexpected best-in-show in “Bombshell”. Five acting nominations between “Marriage Story” and “The Two Popes” get us discussing the worthiness of this year’s crop of nominees, while a snub from times-gone-by sets us off on a digression on the 1990 Best Actor lineup. In other news, Pete finally saw the end of “Wolf of Wall Street,” Cal has a bee in his bonnet about flashbacks, and Pete saves a scathing fast food-related diss until late in the day.


Opening Segment:
A quick look back at the last four years, and although Pete’s cinema going has taken a hit, he offers some of his notable watches since we last did an episode together!

It’s Episode 35 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. With the awards bait officially out of the way we’re turning our attentions towards top ten lists this week, but will any of our picks match? We attempt to find gems among the wreckage of “Flight” and the frottage of “Hyde Park on Hudson,” while Pete endures the pop-happy politics of “Starbuck.” We’re previewing the upcoming Berlin Film Festival, the lineup of which includes Richard Linklater’s highly-anticipated “Before Midnight” and Wong Kar-wai’s flashy-looking “The Grandmasters.” We also take some time to consider the difficulties of list-making, and crow about our brand-spanking new site.
