It’s Episode 126 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 is a boozy one, as Pete managed to finish a six-pack during the recording, but we still manage to talk fairly eloquently about the week’s releases, which include seaboard thriller “Black Sea” and animated spin-off “Penguins of Madagascar.” We also had quite a lot to say about intergenerational connection, as “St. Vincent” tugs at the heartstrings, while the decidedly less wholesome “Eastern Boys” leads to a Joe Wright rant and a discussion about relationships that is alarmingly close to the bone. The latest edition of the Red Light District offers a lot of positivity, as we discuss of one of Israel’s finest efforts, an unexpectedly amusing romantic comedy, and a gay Brazilian romance, while we also chat about the latest critics’ awards, which look to be heading for a “Boyhood” sweep. Kathleen Byron instigates a quickfire celebration of legendary Supporting Actress performances, Naomi Watts’ Russian chatter leaves us a bit bewildered, and Pete risks the wrath of his father by revealing a whisky faux-pas that would have connoisseurs recoiling in horror.

There’s a healthy bout of nostalgia on this week’s podcast, as we look back on the careers of some passing filmic legends and address a 52 year-old re-release. We dive further into the awards season, with reaction to the Golden Globe nominations and discussion of the politics behind Oscar’s Makeup category. The latest Hobbit film doesn’t get the gangster treatment this time around, but it all sounds like gibberish to Pete, while fishing documentary “Leviathan” threatens to instigate a life-changing decision for Cal. We all know what happened the last time Pete ventured to see a racy French film, but will Jeune et Jolie receive the same treatment? Jewish domestic drama “Fill the Void” encourages a fruitful discussion, despite the fact that Cal saw it over a year ago, while a listener question leads to a lengthy lament about Hollywood’s current 3D fad. Tune in to see which Golden Globe snub outright shocked us, which denouncement of Amy Adams was the bombshell of the week, and some rare kind words from Pete about Christopher Nolan. The pork is in the trees.
