Welcome to the TV Film of the Week – the name says it all! It’s Friday, so here’s our choice of the best films on TV in the next 7 days!
Rather late this week, so 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:
(BBFC Rating 15, Doug Jones, 2011)
Monday 24th April, 22:55
It seems a really quiet week, but this is a cracking film with Jake Gyllenhall as a man reliving the last few minutes of his life while trying to stop a bomb destroying a city.
For your consideration
And since I’m here, these are my thoughts on the best of the rest:
Mr Deeds (BBFC Rating 12, Stephen Brill, 2002) – One of Adam Sandler’s lesser known films has more depth than some of his earlier stuff, as a young man becomes a billionaire. 5*, Saturday 22nd April, 19:05
Chale Girl (BBFC Rating 12, Phil Traill, 2010) – Like I said… a quiet week! One for Dan. Felicity Jones stars a girl who works in a chalet! Film4, Saturday 22nd April, 11:00
Mission Impossible (BBFC Rating 12A, Brian DePalma, 1996) – Tom Cruise took the legendary spy TV show, and made a good espionage film the first time out. They developed into more action focused films, but this was fun. Channel 4, Sunday 23rd April, 15:20
And that’s it! Short and sweet! We’ll 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.
