Recommended Posts

If anyone has any other film suggestions post in the thread and I will update the first post. Certain films have links to their respective IMDB pages.

Black = Terrestrial and Freeview : Blue = Pay for Channels (e.g. Sky Movies)

Films that are also playing in high definition are marked HD.

Star Ratings:

***** Masterpiece: **** Highly Recommended: *** Decent: ** Disappointing: * Awful: ‘(AVOID)’ Even Uwe Boll would be embarrassed with this shit.

NB: All films without star ratings are those that I have not watched.

Unfortunately no Sky, well, not in this room - Having another scan there are one or two good films in an hour or two, but they seem all too familiar.

Just scanning my collection, this might be the perfect opportunity to watch The Shining on Blu-ray which I've yet to see (Blu-ray version that is).

Nine Queens (2000) – BBC2 2.10am SUN ***

imdb

This is a fantastic film that i would recommend to anyone.

It's a relatively low budget Argentinian film with subtitles but don't let that put you off.

I wont say anything about the plot as spoilers would ruin the various twists but i really can't recommend it enough.
