The Simon and Jo Film Show: 02/05/2010

From a park in Camden, Simon and Jo begin this weeks podcast. Tackling the news about the new Robin Hood, Batman 3 and Mickey Rourke followed by a review of Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 that features, no other than Mickey Rourke and Robert Downey Jnr.

The London box-office is an opportunity to raise concerns and the Bangor Rep gets his view squeezed in to boot.

Finally, we discuss three trailers - namely The Human Centipede, Buried and Jonah Hex - which are easy enough to see on YouTube. And, while you're on YouTube, check out our 'channel' for The Simon and Jo Film Show.

Shout Out to Encores World of TV and Film - a great blog if ever I knew one.

Music is AC/DC and, obviously, from Iron Man 2...

  2. Be curious to hear your thoughts on 24 City if you get out to see it. It's a bit of an odd one, but still brilliant and wild to see that it's kinda combo of doc/fiction. Director is brilliant though, really brilliant.

    I can't believe you guys got Iron Man 2 already! It's coming out here (Canada) tomorrow. I'll have to listen to your review after/if I see it!

  3. Sorry about joining the part so late, my computer had no sounds for the past week so...yeah. I'm interested about Buried, and glad to see Ryan Reynolds getting recognised, but I'm still not too certain about it.

    Thanks for the shoutout. I don't listen to many podcasts, but this is an excellent entry (if I ever heard one)

  4. @Malcolm - yes, I've put my votes up.

    @Shannon - 24 City... we shall see how the snow ball rolls on that one. Yeah, we got Iron Man 2 and Kick Ass. But you guys got Ghost Whisperer and Dear, John ages ago. So far... we win! ha ha

    @Andrew - Thanks for the comment! 'Buried' is interesting... but 'Human Centipede'? and 'Jonah Hex'? Maybe not.
