The LAST Simon and Jo Film Show: 27/02/2011 Danny Boyle's 'Frankenstein' and Drive Angry

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!


Facebook-er of the week is Luke Owen who writes for Flickering Myth and created 'The Collecters Room' and can now be found on IMDB.
Twitter-er of the week is Jeff Brandt - aka jtbrandt23
Blog of the Week is Top 10 Films, run by Dan.

Thanks to listeners who have always supported us, namely:
Fletch/Mr Cabin/Dylan at Blog Cabins

Every listener at Flickering Myth

Our favourite cinemas in London:


To go off with a bang and, as there is no music available for 'Frankenstein', I have picked my favourite tracks by Underworld - one of my favourite artists - who also composed the score for the 'Frankenstein' production at the National Theatre.

  1. And here I was dying to be a Twitterer of the Week in an upcoming show. Again, sad day and sad Mr. Cabin here.

  2. Well, it is definately the end of the show in its current status. THE SIMON AND JO FILM SHOW will have to be recommissioned by the BBC if it was to rise again so ... if Mr BBC is listening ...

  3. Sad to hear the podcast has come to an end and thanks for all the shoutouts you guys gave our site!

  4. No worries - now I can focus on the blog, I hope to read your blog much more!
