It’s Episode 115 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’s episode tops the 100-minute mark, as we take (a lot of) time out to discuss the many memorable films from 1999, revealing our top tens, and weighing in on some grandiose performances from the year. We also tackle some new releases, with Pete dishing all on the bonkers animation “The Boxtrolls” and Cal revealing how proud the LGBT community should be of “Pride”. We review Norwegian festival circuit favourite “Blind” and Anton Corbijn’s Hamburg-set thriller “A Most Wanted Man,” which features the final leading performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman. Tune in to find out what Pete has spent an excessive amount of money on this week, why Dominic West’s dancing is under scrutiny, and the sheer volume of affection extended to Rachel McAdams. Elsewhere, we discuss the unstoppable Jack O’Connell, Pete’s interruptions during Cal’s review of “Pride” leads to strikes being called, while this week’s Christie Clanger concerns the presence (or lackthereof) of Julie Delpy.

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.

It’s (finally!) Episode 55 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 been away for the best part of two weeks due to Cal’s move plus significant internet issues, however we’re back with a bang, digging into our most anticipated film of the year, “Before Midnight,” in an epic review which spans nearly twenty five minutes. We deal with the strange acting team of Susan Sarandon and The Rock in sobering drama “Snitch,” discuss the sprawling survivalist thriller “Black Rock,” and lock horns when chatting about Abbas Kiarostami’s latest, “Like Someone In Love. Pete goes it alone for zombie procedural “World War Z,” and we mourn the untimely loss of acting veteran James Gandolfini. Our longest episode yet features digressions about Oscar’s 1994 Best Actress lineup, some harsh words about Kate Bosworth, and a surprise concerning Mark Duplass. Enjoy, and sorry for the delay!
