Films On Tv Round-up
News, Reviews, Features, Trailers & Rants...
There are far too many films on this week. The list is ridiculous. Once I'd typed them all out, I couldn't be bothered to write about more than one.
Bank holiday season is upon us! You know what that means: a bumper edition of Films on TV round-up starring all your favourite child-friendly movies! Actually, only two.
My complacency has led me to write this right at the last minute, so I wouldn't expect the Earth, just simple binary statements on either side of an issue. So, prison bad, escape/miracles good. Stephen King rich.
I like to think of this weekly feature as a fairly broad church. In this spirit I bring you a film I've never seen, and another that I have, but in which I didn't have the faintest fucking clue what was going on.
I have seen neither of this week's two featured films. But I think that, if we work as a team, we might just both learn something.
Films have titles, you might have noticed, when turning your head on one side slightly upon being presented with a row of DVDs on a shelf. They have words in them to distinguish them from other films. Here we will examine this concept further. Not much further, admittedly.
It's Oscar night, folks. Neither of this week's featured films was nominated for an Oscar. Then again, neither of them was a silent film with a dog in it or featured George Clooney, so what chance did they stand?
To think that these two guys will share the same screen for the second time this year. How does one frame manage to cram in that much masculinity? Even in IMAX.
Bloody hell, I hope The Bodyguard's not on. That'd be awkward.
It's films on TV time! Films. On TV. Fi-lms...on Teeee-Veeee-yeah. FILMS! Hmm I think that jingle needs more work.
