It’s Episode 104 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.
 
Irini M. returns this week to help us discuss our favourite films and performances from 2014 so far, leading to a disagreement about Wes Anderson, yet more discussion of Xavier Dolan, and a fierce defence of a podcast fantasy favourite. The week’s reviews see us flirt with both familiarity and contempt, as Cedric Klapisch’s trilogy-capping “Chinese Puzzle” was finally released in the UK, while not all of us were happy about the Venice trophy haul of Greek family drama “Miss Violence.” We tackle cancer flick “The Fault In Our Stars,” Cal goes it alone for Clint Eastwood’s foray into the musical genre, “Jersey Boys,” while the latest batch of non-sporting news calls for a Desplat love-in, and a discussion of everyone’s favourite Hong Kong auteur. Pete continues to liken the faults of World Cinema to Roy Hodgson’s World Cup tactics, a listener question provokes a passionate defence of Greek patriotism from Irini, and a controversial pitch for a new Jennifer Lopez rom-com provides an early FYC for next year’s compilation.

The week’s news: 

  • Alexandre Desplat announced as the President of the jury at this year’s Venice Film Festival
  • Wong Kar-Wai’s new film is on the way
  • Gerry Conlon, subject of the film “In the Name of the Father,” dies aged 60

Welcome to a special episode 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.

Pete has been away all weekend so we’re catching up, but in the meantime check out our special compilation episode to celebrate the podcast’s one-year anniversary. Tune in for our favourite reviews, including one where Pete re-imagines “Beyond the Hills” as a Lesbian alternative to “Wreck-It Ralph,” and ghettoizes “The Hobbit.” Listen as we explain our thinking behind The Watson Factor and The Poupaud Range, while we also discuss best actresses under thirty, Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar win, as well as a ton of innuendo!
