It’s Episode 148 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 begins with a lengthy opening, featuring discussion of Sofia Coppola’s travails with the studio system, a long overdue film on the Suffragette movement, and a retrospective of Al Pacino in the wake of the release of “Danny Collins.” There are also reviews of disaster action movie “San Andreas,” Iranian vampire flick “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night,” and romantic comedy “Man Up,” which propelled us into a digression concerning the politics of internet dating. Elsewhere, Cal is forced into a Neil Diamond-style rendition, a certain Antipodean singer narrowly avoids a dreaded Ehle Omission, while Pete disses the vocal talents of a British redhead, much to Cal’s chagrin.
The week’s news: Some Birthday wishes, plus news on Sofia Coppola’s exit from “The Little Mermaid,” the opener of this year’s London Film Festival, and a chat about Al Pacino!
