It’s Episode 160 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 there’s a ton of news, as we discuss the possibility of Damian Lewis as James Bond, the decision by Sean Penn to sue Lee Daniels, and the final submissions for the Foreign Language Oscar, which include a surprising move from the French committee, and a nationally-questionable entry from Ireland. The week’s reviews see us tackle the frosty climate and eclectic cast of Baltasar Kormakur’s “Everest,” Cal caught Anthony Hopkins’ clairvoyant antics in “Solace,” while an unforeseen plot device in Jack Black comedy “The D Train” saw us glimpse far more of him than we’d like. Elsewhere, Ryan Adams’ cover of Taylor Swift’s album has Pete enthused, and the week’s array of hunks pleases Cal greatly.

The week’s news: 

  • Sixty years without James Dean
  • Damian Lewis rumoured to be the next James Bond
  • Sean Penn sues Lee Daniels for $10m
  • Foreign Language Oscar deadline ends

[4:45 – 20:40]

Opening Segment: This month’s Red Light District, featuring discussion of “Daisy Kenyon,” “It Follows,” “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” “Singles,” “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” and “There’s Always Tomorrow”!

It’s Episode 152 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 turn our attention to two high-profile sequels, as the James Cameron-endorsed “Terminator: Genisys” lit up cinema screens this past week, while Cal was alone for “Magic Mike XXL,” the follow-up to the 2012 stripper hit we famously (if rather predictably) disagreed on. Parallel dimensions are brought out in the Justin Long-Emmy Rossum romance “Comet,” which confused Cal and made a rather negative impression on Pete’s screening partner, plus there’s news from the on-going East End Film Festival. Elsewhere, Dustin Hoffman’s been a bit outspoken, we take some time out to celebrate a milestone for Lena Endre, and Jai Courtney’s abs are under the microscope. 

The week’s news:

  • The death of Diana Douglas                                            
  • “Everest” to open the Venice Film Festival                           
  • Dustin Hoffman attacks Hollywood                
  • Lena Endre turns sixty               
  • East End Film Festival round-up: “Containment”; “MLE”; “Norfolk”
