Any Sky Movies to recommend?

Recommended Posts

upgraded for the time being to take advantage of extra viewing time while i recover from hangovers... recorded Pineapple Express & Tropic Thunder so far... any movies i should be looking out for & putting on the Sky+?

The Sky Mag is a shite resource, no help at all with movies, recommends 1 crap movie per day or something like that. I totally grudge being charged 2.20 for it, I asked them not to send it to me so that i could save the charge, they said it couldn't be done, awesome. Apparently you can cancel receiving the mag... but without saving the charge, some kind of VAT saving loophole, plus they get to send a mag packed with advertisements to all their customers, a big audience (in theory - if anyone reads it!), so lucrative for advertisers & another excuse to plug all their services, box office, etc.

Just had a wee swatch at the listings...

In Bruges is on Sky Comedy at 11pm tonight

The Bucket List at 9 on Drama

Chariots of Fire at 2.45pm on mdn greats

High Fidelity at 12.20pm on indie

Magnolia at 1.05am on indie

Film four you've got Being john Malkovich, Laputa and Local hero... all good.

The Dead Zone on Horror at 4pm which is always good.

That's what I'd watch.

yeah that waste of trees is paid for by your subscription, quite a few threads online elsewhere about it due to the recent increase in charge, most folk don't read the small print but it's been going on for a while, I of course grudged it before, was during the time when I tried to cancel my Sky+ due to moving as I didn't want to pay again for getting it installed (at an address with a sky dish already installed but not the extra + cable) but found out you have to have sky+ for 12 month period, so in order to make use of what I'd have to pay for...

The Sky magazine used to be the best TV guide, bar none. Set out in a big grid, with the times along the top, and the channels down the side. Pretty much like your Sky Digital TV guide, but colour coded for classification, and everything. Now it's just "This is on at some point, and so is this. Watch it. We get paid alot to show it, and it's dead good, honest".
