Yup, that's right! Over Christmas, Jo and I managed to record a new episode of The Simon and Jo Film Show to review 2011, revealing our Top 10, and watching all four Mission Impossible films to boot!

All the backing music is from the film we discuss and the same goes for each Mission Impossible film.

I know, I know, I released my Top 5 films already on Ryan's Matineecast, but hey - you haven't heard my Top 6 through 10 and, no one has heard Jo's Top 10 at all! As usual, both Jo and I didn't reveal our choices to each other so you hear our gasps and cheer as we hear what each other chose!

Without furtherado, have a listen and catch up with Simon and Jo!

Unfortunately, The Simon and Jo Film Show has now transmitted it's last podcast. Over 70 episodes, 5 Bourne Brain Baffler's, 5 London Film Festival podcasts, 2 special editions (to see the episode-list click here) and here we are with a final episode.
We record live from outside the National Theatre and, indeed, it does get windy - so apologies for that. But, no film news or box-office this week simply discussion on the National Theatre's production of 'Frankenstein' directed by Danny Boyle and starring Johnny Lee Miller (Trainspotting) and Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC's Sherlock Holmes TV series). Details about the cinema-release of this play is here.
We then run through our Oscar-picks and what we think may win, only to finish with a visit to the club and then review Drive Angry starring Nicholas Cage, Amber Herd and William Fichtner.
The blog will still be running but, alas, the end has come to a podcast which we have always enjoyed making and thank all our listeners for putting up with our ramblings and banter!

So, first off, we shall now attempt to - every week - take a picture from the location we record from. This week, we watched our films from Clapham Picturehouse and so, a picture of Jo and I pre-viewing is attached.
This week, our main review is True Grit - the Coen's taking on a true Western in all its 1800's glory. Then we have the usual news and meeting-of-people in 'the club' before we run through the London box-office and new releases.
We finish with some incrdible coverage of Oscar nominated documnetary Inside Job - a favourite to win - and the Australian gangster movie: Animal Kingdom.

Twitter-er of the week is Emma Farley (she also has a blog - FINAL CUT) who singled Jo out on his anti-Kings-Speech stance. But alas, Jo stands far from her as he still is not convinced - seriously folks, try and convince him to see it. He won't listen to Emma Farley, Mad Hatter or I... Finally, our blogger of the week is Jason Soto at Invasion of the B-Movies primarily due to his single facebook/twitter post about Justin Bieber - or, more importantly, his fiance Felicia - stating how we should ruin Justin Bieber fans movie-going experience Music All music is from Carter Burwell's soundtrack to True Grit - though finishing with Air Supply's track, as used in Animal Kingdom.
