To save us all trawling through the schedules…what are your recommendations (classic or otherwise) for viewing over the Christmas period? I’ll start:

Where Eagles Dare ITV4 5pm Christmas Day

If anybody can point me in the direction of Gremlins I’d be grateful too (yes, I know I can stream it from somewhere but that’s not the point)


#2

skip to 3:44 for films from the 23rd onwards… Tommy (Boxing Day 1.25 a.m.) and Labyrinth (30th 2.00 p.m.) are my top picks so far :lou_smiley:

Can’t help with gremlins though :lou_sad:

No Gremlins this week


#3

Has to be Radio Rentals, Baird M.712

A proper bit of furniture.

3.00-3.10pm on lots of channels, but I shall be watching on the Beeb. Our Queen will tell us about her anus, or something. Not to be missed.

Good fillums, shame they’ll be ruined by adverts. Casino Royale is already 2h30m long that’s going to be 3 hours with adverts!!


#11

I’ll be playing spot the nonce whilst watching TOTP2


#12

I watched it in 3D one year, I’m still getting counselling for that…


#13

Its poor this year, I am justusing KODI, its not really in the spirit of it by call the midwife on peak time Christmas Day sums it up, OFAH box set as well caning, love it.


#14

Love that movie. First saw it in the towns village hall when I was 11 with a girl I fancied from the same class. Loved Ray Harryhausen’s work. The sequence where the teeth are sown and the skeleton’s appear from the ground is still awesome. I also have to thank him for the nick name i gave to my ex wife (demented Harpy). Also what a great name for an indie band - Jason and the Argonauts!
