It’s Episode 33 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 reveal our preconceptions about Quentin Tarantino before reviewing his brand new Western “Django Unchained.” We’re in for the straight-talking intimacy of Ben Lewin’s “The Sessions,” while the minor releases of Horror anthology “V/H/S” and culinary documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” attempt to whet our appetite. We talk about our favourite screenwriters and on-screen performances of disability, before rounding it all off with some swift SAG predictions. If you savour us when we’re at our shortest and snappiest, here’s a baby podcast for you. We can’t mimic Quentin all of the time…
