It’s Episode 126 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 is a boozy one, as Pete managed to finish a six-pack during the recording, but we still manage to talk fairly eloquently about the week’s releases, which include seaboard thriller “Black Sea” and animated spin-off “Penguins of Madagascar.” We also had quite a lot to say about intergenerational connection, as “St. Vincent” tugs at the heartstrings, while the decidedly less wholesome “Eastern Boys” leads to a Joe Wright rant and a discussion about relationships that is alarmingly close to the bone. The latest edition of the Red Light District offers a lot of positivity, as we discuss of one of Israel’s finest efforts, an unexpectedly amusing romantic comedy, and a gay Brazilian romance, while we also chat about the latest critics’ awards, which look to be heading for a “Boyhood” sweep. Kathleen Byron instigates a quickfire celebration of legendary Supporting Actress performances, Naomi Watts’ Russian chatter leaves us a bit bewildered, and Pete risks the wrath of his father by revealing a whisky faux-pas that would have connoisseurs recoiling in horror.

  • Los Angeles Film Critics Association winners
  • Boston Society of Film Critics winners

It’s Episode 62 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 features two epic tales of unfortunate evenings, as Pete takes the role of storyteller for a missed flight debacle and a drunken car-key faux pas. We give our verdict on a night from hell for the characters in wedding comedy “Bachelorette,” and dig into the viability of the politics in Scandinavian prostitution procedural “Call Girl.” Cal went to bat for the rampant action comedy “2 Guns,” and Iain Softley’s welcome return to directing, “Trap for Cinderella,” while Pete (surprise, surprise) was this week’s Bollywood correspondent by opting for Indian smash hit “Chennai Express.” Illness brings out Cal’s Kathleen Turner voice for a podcast reprise, while we lambast the academy for their 1997 shortcomings and look ahead to Julianne Moore’s ‘In the Mood’ debut next week.
