FilmFour is relaunching on Freeview with a 'Fifty films to see before you die' countdown. Good work Channel 4!

I always liked FilmFour with it's jaunty-angle art-housey films. Speaking of which 'Thank you for Smoking' looks good at the moment.

Here's the 10-4 on the 50 films, including the full list.

Some ones I recommend:

  • 2001 - A Space Odyssey
  • Apocalypse Now
  • Breakfast Club, The
  • City of God
  • Donnie Darko
  • Fight Club
  • Pulp Fiction
  • The Shawshank Redemption
I bought 'Summer Storm' on DVD yesterday (more info from IMDB) - quite excited about that. Sounds a bit like 'Beautiful Thing-on-sea' =:)

I bought that from Asda online ?? It was the cheapest, according to a quick Froogle. So well done Asda for finally remembering about the Internet.

My 'Top 20 films ever' list.

Free, yes, but now with adverts! Forgot to mention that in your clever commercials didn't you F4? Maybe if you hadn't forked out to get Judi Dench in a lobster costume you could have spared us a few. Makes you appreciate the BBC. In fact, isn't it about time we had a BBCFilm channel?
