Episode 128: ‘Tis the Season to be Juli

[1:24:52]
You can Listen online

It’s Episode 128 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.


It’s our last episode of 2014 so we take the opportunity to celebrate the best films we’ve reviewed on the podcast this year, and our favourite performances, which includes a surprising Supporting Actress win from Pete. This week’s reviews include the Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and Angelina Jolie’s audacious survival tale “Unbroken,” while Pete caught Jimi Hendrix biopic “Jimi: All Is By My Side.” We discuss fradulent artist drama “Big Eyes,” starring Amy Adams, while we assess Julianne Moore’s bid for a long overdue Oscar in heavy-going Alzheimer’s tale “Still Alice.” Elsewhere, the death of the last remaining acting Oscar winner from the 1930s resurrects a common complaint, we scrutinize this year’s Foreign Language Oscar race some more, there’s a Razzie-level performance in one of this week’s films, and the podcast is interrupted by the children and dogs in Cal’s packed household.

The Week’s News:
  • The death of Luise Rainer
  • Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter split up
  • Foreign Language Oscar Shortlist is revealed

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!
