The new year starts off with a minor tragedy, as our first recording of the podcast was lost due to a technical glitch. We reconvened later for round two, however, so you can listen to us vent our concerns about Tsunami-drama “The Impossible,” retirement home melodrama “Quartet,” indie dramedy “Celeste & Jesse Forever,” and the relatively drama-less “Playing for Keeps.” We also look ahead to the new Terrence Malick film, “To the Wonder,” before offering our oscar predictions (announced tomorrow!) in all of the major categories.

Opening Segment: Discussing the trailer for the new Terrence Malick film, “To the Wonder”  [2:55 – 10:30]

It’s Episode 28 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. Awards dominate this week with discussion of the National Board of Review, LA film critics, and Boston film critics prizes, and predicting the Golden Globe and Screen Actors’ Guild nominations. We talk about documentaries “The House I Live In” and “Knuckleball,” before finally getting around to arthouse favourite “Tabu.” And in straddling major extremes of masculinity, Martin McDonagh’s male-dominated “Seven Pscyhopaths” faces off against our second Miley Cyrus film of the year, “So Undercover.” The Miley vehicle brings giggles and shame to an otherwise level-headed episode, but we brought it on ourselves…
