Superman: The Movie (1978) – Saturday 11th October, 13:50 ITV4. The magnificent Christopher Reeve in the lead and a stirring John Williams score. A true classic that shows Snyder how it should be done.
Back to The Future (1985) – Sunday 12th October, 18:55 ITV2. It’s another classic that I remember from my childhood. Michael J Fox, a guitar, a time machine and classic 1950’s America.
Kick Ass (2010) – Monday 13th October, 21:00 Film 4. I had no idea what was coming my way when I sat down to watch the DVD of this film. The moment Hit Girl makes her devastating and bloody appearance the film takes off into the stratosphere.
Saving Private Ryan (1998) – Thursday 16th October, 21:00 Film 4. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg team up for a no compromise look at life on the beaches in Normandy on D Day in 1945. It’s a tough watch but if you get into it you can’t look away.
Unstoppable (2010) – Friday 17th October, 21:00 E4. When I went to the cinema I never expected to enjoy this film as much as I did. It’s a rare film for the 2000’s – a 90 minute thrill ride that knows exactly what it is and doesn’t outstay its welcome. Washington and Pine help to raise the film above the ordinary.
