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)

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

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

 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!

I'm watching Harry Potter. I think it might be the first one. They're all very young. That Hermione is a right prick.

my favourite Christmas film of all time has just started on TCM. The Exorcist. I'm already shitting my knickers.

Hey mate. it's Christmas, and you are forced to smile (showing your teeth as an approximation of smiling works i've found) Then making laughing noises laughing

Exorcist isn't a family movie really
