It’s Episode 121 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 might have been delayed this week, but we’re back with four new releases, including the highly-anticipated horror film “The Babadook,” the trailer of which has been amusing us for weeks. Cal was the only one in the queue for Susanne Bier’s delayed period drama “Serena,” starring everyone’s favourite ballroom duo, while we both caught Bille August’s slow-burning mystery “Night Train to Lisbon,” although Cal saw it over a year ago! We end by discussing World War II drama “Fury,” which leads us onto calamitous film scores and the wonder of Terrence Malick. Elsewhere, we chat about the Best Picture races of 1998 and 1945, the Hibs vs. Celtic debate from our “Under the Skin” review is finally settled, and a listener question forces us to address the temperament of a certain female tennis player. We discuss why it doesn’t pay to be a fan of Ed Sheeran, Melanie Laurent is plagued with Huston problems, Pete manages to diss Carey Mulligan twice, and a sixty year-old sexpot has the potential to upset Elizabeth Olsen next week.

  • Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” wins Best Film at the Rome Film Festival

It’s Episode 54 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 took place after dark, as technical issues prevented the recording from going ahead as scheduled. We braved sleep deprivation in the early hours to bring you a loaded review of Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” which neither of us were particularly enthralled to visit. Cal sat down for “Admission,” starring comedic stalwarts Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, before embarking on the shady world of sex tourism in Ulrich Seidl’s “Paradise: Love.” Pete welcomed the return of Jennifer Connelly in ensemble piece “Stuck in Love,” and we offer you a special segment where we “fix” past injustices at the Oscars, featuring a mammoth conundrum from the 1970s. Listen to hear who Christopher Doyle is offending this week, yet more discussion about Michael Shannon’s facial hair, and why Amy Adams is responsible for Pete’s well-being. And it has nothing to do with sinks.

Opening Segment:  The week’s film news, plus a special segment where we talk about overdue wins at the Oscars, and attempt to “fix” past injustices [3:00 – 16:15]

It’s Episode 35 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. With the awards bait officially out of the way we’re turning our attentions towards top ten lists this week, but will any of our picks match? We attempt to find gems among the wreckage of “Flight” and the frottage of “Hyde Park on Hudson,” while Pete endures the pop-happy politics of “Starbuck.” We’re previewing the upcoming Berlin Film Festival, the lineup of which includes Richard Linklater’s highly-anticipated “Before Midnight” and Wong Kar-wai’s flashy-looking “The Grandmasters.” We also take some time to consider the difficulties of list-making, and crow about our brand-spanking new site.
