The Simon and Jo Film Show:01/08/2010

Due to unforeseen circumstances this weeks film, Splice, was nabbed at the last minute (all explained in the show...) but thankfully, Jo managed to see art-house biopic Gainsbourg and we discuss this as our main-movie. We then discuss the new releases and London box-office - mentioning even the Toronto Film festival amongst many other facets of the film world.

The last section we devote to Billy Wilder's Double Indemnity and John Hughes' The Breakfast Club.


All music is by Serge Gainsbourg - and there are a bunch of albums available on Amazon, Play and HMV. Additionally, the final song is the classic tune from The Breakfast Club - 'Don't You Forget About Me' by Simple Minds, all together now: "ooooooooo-ooooooo-oh, woah-oooooooah..."


Yogi Bear, with Dan Ackroyd and Justin Timberlake (??), Suckerpunch the up and coming Zack Snyder 'epic' again, the five-minute trailer of Thor shown at Comic-Con and - to finish - what looks like an incredible film: Catfish...

  1. Another great posting - and in recognition of such, may I please present you with this award:

    Keep up the great work!

  2. I never called Jo a racist! Biased, I say, he's biased! Racist doesn't even make sense, as since when is "American" a race?

    That does it - I might have to visit the Simon & Jo archives and provide documented evidence of this bias - though you guys did a pretty good job on your own just going through the box office. If it's French, Jo's on it!

    All in good fun, mates. :D

    For my money, Ferris Bueller has always been my favorite Hughes flick. Certainly, The Breakfast Club is great, but nothing can top Ferris, Cameron and Sloane. It's probably in my top 5 of 80s flicks...

    Apparently, I need to see this Catfish trailer. I've missed it thus far.
