It’s Episode 22 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. As a continent braces itself for the force of nature this week, we tackle the winds of change going on in the Bond franchise. Does “Skyfall” revolutionise Bond for better or worse? We discuss the quaint family drama in Switzerland’s Oscar submission, “Sister,” and in awards hopeful “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Cal goes it alone with reviews of critics darling “Elena,” and the film which united Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez in more ways than one: the seaboard adventure “Dark Tide.” Expect disagreement, derision, and some anticipation for next month’s Amy Adams feast. It’s been far too long…
