News from the Croisette lures Irini and Cal back to the microphone, as we discuss yesterday’s announcement of the 70th Cannes Film Festival lineup, featuring (among others) new films from Andrey Zvyagintsev, Lynne Ramsay, Todd Haynes, and podcast favourite Sofia Coppola. We’re also catching up with news we haven’t discussed since the last episode, chief of which is *that* infamous Oscar mix-up, plus we touch upon the surprise smash hit “Get Out” and dig into some seriously juicy female-led TV shows. Elsewhere, Irini shamelessly flaunts some national pride when we discuss one of the festival’s entries, we vehemently disagree on the virtues of the Safdie brothers, and Cal tests Irini’s patience by taking a pop at Xavier Dolan and all but killing off Michael Haneke.

It’s Episode 37 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 rather united in our praise/derision of this week’s cinematic offerings, although there’s little diplomacy to be seen in the films themselves. We tackle Bruce Willis’ latest actioner “A Good Day to Die Hard,” and another potential franchise movie in teen-oriented magic tale “Beautiful Creatures.” We’re checking in with Judd Apatow’s latest peek into the perils of ‘adulthood’ in “This Is 40” and the fractured political situation in 1980s Chile in Pablo Larrain’s “No.” All this, and we’re predicting Sunday’s Oscar winners, instigating yet another contest in the process. Those awaiting news of Pete’s forfeit for his previous contest loss will receive encouragement. It will soon be Tarkovsky time!
