It’s Episode 151 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.


As 2015 races on, we’re joined this week by Irini M. to talk about our highlights from the year so far, plus she gives us a recap of her latest successful film viewings in a special edition of the Red Light District. Reviews this week include Roy Andersson’s quirky Golden Lion winner, “A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence,” Mauritanian drama “Timbuktu,” while Cal dishes all on the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Longest Ride,” paying particular attention to Scott Eastwood. Elsewhere, we sat down for Peter Bogdanovich’s latest screwball emulation “She’s Funny That Way,” and Pete caught the Despicable Me spin-off “Minions,” which it’s fair to say tested his patience. Tune in for an unexpected tirade against Mickey Rooney’s longevity, some love dramas concerning the Stratten family, and the occasional jibe about Greece’s disastrous financial situation.

The week’s news 

Red Light District: Irini “pimps” the many films she’s seen lately, featuring discussion of “Ana and the Wolves,” “Gett: The Trial of Vivian Amsalem,” “The Invisible Man,” “Lifeboat,” “Spring,” and much more!

It’s Episode 150 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’re back this week with a packed episode, as we get around to tackling the record-breaking blockbuster “Jurassic World” and the latest collaboration between Bill Condon and Ian McKellen, “Mr. Holmes,” while some interesting news items get us chattering about Kristen Stewart’s sexuality and Ingrid Bergman’s past indiscretions. We pay tribute to the late James Horner by discussing some of our favourite work of his, Cal reviews Celine Sciamma’s latest coming-of-age tale “Girlhood,” and trepidation for the the heavily-delayed and part-disowned “Accidental Love” is tested when we review David O. Russell’s foray into the world of political satire. Meanwhile, Cal has caught up with a British Springtime hit and one of Harvey Weinstein’s Oscar hopes, Pete is distinctly unimpressed with Vincent D’Onofrio’s military mindset, and Laura Linney’s stab at a regional English accent goes down like a lead balloon.

The week’s news: 

  • James Mangold to direct “Seducing Ingrid Bergman”                                     
  • Kevin Spacey receives an honorary Knighthood                                        
  • Kristen Stewart is outed?                                             
  • The death of James Horner

It’s Episode 143 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 it’s time to go retro again, as this month’s Red Light District is a Best Actress spectacular, which gets us discussing (among other things) the women of 1948, and the testiness of Barbara Stanwyck. The week’s reviews concern Nazis, outlaws, gardeners, and wild goose chases, as we tackle Kristian Levring’s Western “The Salvation,” and courtroom drama “Woman in Gold.” Cal reveals all on the wilderness-set “Jauja,” while Alan Rickman’s sophomore effort “A Little Chaos” offered Pete a chance to atone for an earlier egregious omission. Elsewhere, there’s an unexpected shout-out to Courtney Love, Daniel Bruhl is saddled with another thankless role, and the trailer (and tagline) for Blake Lively’s latest project has us howling.

Red Light District: Revealing the non-new films we’ve been catching up with in the past month, featuring discussion of “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” “The Furies,” “Joan of Arc,” “Lady Sings the Blues,” “Three Comrades,” and “Xenia”!
