Tomorrow at 13:35 is The Towering Inferno. I think this film disappeared for a bit after 9/11 but is back now. Tune in to see Paul Newman and Steve McQueen get all dirty and sweaty whilst taking on a massive fire

Cheers, never got round to seeing this. 

  ( and also behind the scenes fighting over who had the most lines!).

 

And according to one of Kermode's seven anecdotes: squabbles over poster top billing means one of them is upper right and the other lower left so neither truly has the best placement. Good article about name placement here: https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/the-dark-arts-of-poster-billing/

Paul Newman double bill on ITV4 this weekend

Board favourite The Sting today at 12:55!

Tomorrow at 13:35 is The Towering Inferno. I think this film disappeared for a bit after 9/11 but is back now. Tune in to see Paul Newman and Steve McQueen get all dirty and sweaty whilst taking on a massive fire ( and also behind the scenes fighting over who had the most lines!). Not as good as Poseidon Adventure for me but still a really great few hours 

Superb films, but neither will save you if you're on a milk float with a bomb attached to it.

Midnight Run starring Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin is on Film4 at 21:00 or Film4+1 an hour later.

It was a thread on this board that made me check it out and I'm glad I did.  Give it a watch, it's bloody fantastic!

Tangerine is on Film4 tonight at about 1:30am if you're into great films about trans sex workers that are filmed on iPhones.

Just when I thought my confusion passed with poor Miriam Rivera and I'd come out the other side smelling of Blue Stratos and Denim shower gel. 

I can't say I won't watch this, but you'll never be able to prove that I have.

I was a bit disappointed in Tangerine but I'm very much in the minority. Sean Baker is a really good guy and his other two films, Starlet and especially The Florida Project, are superb.

Wasn't sure where else to put this so thought this was a good a place as any;

There was a little 2-minute segment on Talking Pictures TV at the end of BBC News today (starts around 29 mins in);

Mad to think a TV channel with ever-growing viewership (6M at its peak) is maintained by a father and daughter out of a garden shed.

It's a wonderful channel and I've discovered some great films as a result. Was worried when I heard Covid-19 was causing them financial bother.

Honestly, it's way better than "Cornish fishing village drama" makes it sound. A great companion piece to Make Up, if you can catch it at a nearby art cinéma.

Would you recommend a double bill of Bait with Fisherman's Friends and in which case, which order?
