It’s Episode 27 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 sees the old guard return, with Clint Eastwood back in front of the camera in “Trouble with the Curve,” and austere Austrian mainstay Michael Haneke bringing his Palme d’Or winner “Amour” to Anglo eyes. Dickens’ classic “Great Expectations” and gory Brit-comedy “Sightseers” get a dissection of their own, and after six months Cal has finally seen a 2012 Bollywood production, but is “normal” crime thriller “Talaash” the ideal candidate to ease him in? All this, plus our reaction to the NYFCC winners and a look ahead to the NBR…

It’s Episode 26 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’re warming up for awards with discussions of Oscar lineups from 1942, 1952, 1962, and 2003, as well as forecasting this year’s nominees. The big release is David O’Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” of which the focus is firmly on Jennifer Lawrence, while buddy-cop drama “End of Watch” has the job of setting this week’s pulses racing. The girls of hotline comedy “For a Good Time, Call..” get our inner-chick mode going, before Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz strip for “Gambit.”  A late squabble about Indian cinema sets Jake and Michael’s bar-setting bromance down some notches, but this was a fun one…

Discussed on the podcast: 

Opening Segment: The contentious results of the Leeds Film Festival’s audience votes, and championing films and performances that won’t make our year-end lists [2:05 – 14:00]

Reviews of: 

  • “End of Watch”
  • “For a Good Time, Call…”
