It’s Episode 16 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. This week we have six films but have only seen two together: this week’s big releases, “Hope Springs” and “Premium Rush.” The rest is consigned to reliable snipes at auteurs (Woody Allen and Asghar Farhadi the unlucky victims on this occasion), while we ponder the male posturing in “The Sweeney” and “Dredd 3D.” With the Oscars approaching, we take time to discuss the big film coming out of Toronto, “Silver Linings Playbook,” and the big film coming out in November, Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln.”
