It’s Episode 155 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.


We’ve spent the past two weeks topping up the tan, but now we’re back with an episode packed full of criticism, as we turn our attention to the most anticipated film of the year, Pixar’s “Inside Out”. We also assess whether Tom Cruise has still got it, in the latest instalment in the Mission Impossible franchise, “Rogue Nation,” while Cal reviews heavy-going boxing fable “Southpaw,” and Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara in ramshackle comedy “Hot Pursuit.” Meanwhile, we turn our attention to the start of the awards season by digging into the Venice and Toronto Film Festival line-ups, touching upon (among other things) Charlie Kaufman’s return to directing and Tom Hooper’s latest piece of Oscar bait. Plus there’s news of Mads Mikkelsen’s unlikely collaboration with a pop star, Alicia Vikander’s prolific year in film continues, and Xavier Dolan’s foray into the world of voice-over acting comes as somewhat of a surprise.

The week’s news

Opening Segment: Discussing the line-up for this year’s Venice Film Festival, featuring anticipation for films from Charlie Kaufman, Atom Egoyan, and Pablo Trapero, plus we discuss some of the awards hopefuls playing at this year’s film festival in Toronto!

It’s Episode 146 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 back, with some post-election blues, but there are a host of birthdays from the world of cinema to celebrate, leading to digressions about the work of Richard Brooks and Frank Capra. In the wake of the on-going we take time out to discuss the conversely different reviews for Todd Haynes’ and Gus Van Sant’s new films, plus there is (already) news of the next jury president at the Venice Film Festival. As for the reviews, Cal caught up with Chris Rock’s semi-autobiographical romance, “Top Five,” and the sequel to the popular acapella tale “Pitch Perfect,” while we both saw the trailblazing “Mad Max: Fury Road” and Blake Lively’s stab at Benjamin Button, “The Age of Adaline.” Elsewhere, Christopher Doyle’s words of wisdom infiltrate their way into this week’s critiques, we lament the demise of Thora Birch’s career, there’s a rant concerning one of Charlize Theron’s upcoming projects, and Pete’s culinary limitations as a bachelor are laid bare.

The week’s news: Discussing some interesting birthdays in the world of film, and the buzz from the on-going Cannes Film Festival!
