TV Film Of The Week – 10th February

Welcome to the TV Film of the Week – the name says it all! It’s Friday, and here’s our choice of the best films on TV in the next 7 days!

Let’s get straight to it and run down this week’s recommendations!

NB since we are all still ushers at heart, our weeks will start on a Friday.

So, our TV Film of the Week is:

Shaun of the Dead
(BBFC Rating 15, Edgar Wright, 2004)


Saturday 11th February, 21:00

I recommend this film every time it is on – and now it is on Saturday night at 9pm, it’s time to become The Snooty Ushers’ TV Film of the Week! Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two housemates who find themselves in the middle of a Zombie invasion.

An alternative choice, our other TV Film of the Week is….

The Full Monty
(BBFC Rating 15, Peter Cattaneo, 1997)


Saturday 11th February, 21:00

Two British comedy classics are on at the same time, so I’ll recommend them both and you can decide. Robert Carlyle leads a brilliant cast, playing a group of unemployed steelworkers who decide to become strippers. Brilliant stuff.

For your consideration

And since I’m here, these are my thoughts on the best of the rest:

Tuck and Dale versus Evil (BBFC Rating 15, Eli Craig, 2009) – Two normal guys are mistaken for murderous hillbillys by a group of students. But then they start dying in crazy ways, Tuck and Dale realise they are up against something bigger. Hilarious horror comedy. Horror Channel, Friday 10th February, 21:00

Blood Diamond (BBFC Rating 15, Edward Zwick, 2006) – Leo DiCaprio had to wait nearly another decade for his Oscar, but this was a great performance. He is a diamond smuggler who helps Djimon Hounsou’s desperate fisherman trying to free his son. BBC1, Friday 10th February, 23:55

Super 8 (BBFC Rating 15, JJ Abrams, 2011) – A group of children are making a zombie films when they film a train crash. People go missing and the military comes in, but the kids decide to investigate for themselves. Film4, Saturday 11th February, 21:00

Behind the Candelabra (BBFC Rating 15, Stephen Soderbergh, 2013) – As part of his last run of film-making before “retiring”, Stephen Soderbergh made this Liberace biopic. Michael Douglas is unbelievable as the flamboyant pianist, and Matt Damon his younger lover. Plus Rob Lowe as a plastic surgeon is hilarious. BBC2, Saturday 11th February, 22:35

The Fly (BBFC Rating 18, David Croenberg, 1986) – Jeff Goldblum is a scientist whose experiments, and his obsession, have terrible consequences. Still creepy as hell 30 years later. Sony Movie Channel, Tuesday 14th February, 23:15

There we go, we hope there’s something you like in there! See you next week when The Snooty Ushers choose their TV Film Of The Week!

Until next time, stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold. See you soonish.

that's all folks
