It’s Episode 94 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.
Those tired of our sports banter may rejoice this week as we forego our usual sporty opening, instead heading on a tangent about the horrific state of 1994’s Best Actress Oscar race, and yet another aside involving the Dardennes brothers. This week’s episode sees us largely catching up with smaller films, as we tackle family drama “The Fold,” science-fiction horror “Last Days on Mars,” and John Michael McDonagh’s Catholic whodunit “Calvary.” Cal dishes all on the culinary allure of Indian romance “The Lunchbox,” before we react to the slew of cameos in the new Muppet movie, “Muppets Most Wanted,” which sadly lacks the presence of Amy Adams this time around. Elsewhere, tune in to find out what Pete’s Annette Bening moment of the week was, whose bohemian attire caused this week’s Huston Problem, how Linford Christie’s manhood and the cast of “Magic Mike” could have spiced up one of this week’s films, and which leading males bear the brunt of our wrath when we discuss the Academy’s worst ever choices for Best Actor. “Cat Ballou” fans: stay away!
