Tonight at 10pm, BBC4, Gohatto - great movie, if you haven't seen it I recommend it :thumbs:
Tonight's Asian Invasion season movie on BBC4 is Kim Ki-duk's Buddhist arthouse fable Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring at 9.10pm 8)
For the few that haven't yet seen it (!) BATTLE ROYALE is on SCI FI at 22:00 on Tuesday 18th April and repeated on SCI FI at 01:40 on Friday 21st April.
And AUDITION also gets some screenings on SCI FI at 23:35 on Tuesday 11th April, and is repeated on SCI FI at 02:00 on Monday 17th April.
It's worth pointing out that Sci-Fi usually screen the SE version of Battle Royale. So if you only have the original release and want to see the extra bits without forking out extra cash, now's a good time.
Thanks for the heads-up Mailer! :tiphat:
Jesus Christ, you UK-ians are damn lucky!
Rarely do channels here in the States show subbed foreign films. There's one channel that's subscription only, I had it for the first three months of my satellite (then it disappeared), Showtime Extremes that does show Japanese films often (none of them horror though), I saw Onmyoji 2 and part of Kunoichi, and it's also where I first saw Ichi the Killer (I actually recorded it with the DVR and kept it for several months until my dad accidently deleted it... *grr*).
But if a regular channel here showed a subtitled movie (which I've never seen happen), I can guarantee that the station would be receiving calls from enraged ignorants everywhere. A year ago I was stoked when I heard the USA channel would air Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; I was less than thrilled when I started watching it, and it was dubbed. What a shocker. I just couldn't watch it: the dub was just so bad... I turned it off and went on the computer :-P
You people are just lucky. I know that channel 4 over there showed Ring and Ring 2 the day before The Ring twO came out.... Just the way things work I guess.
Am I jealous? HELL YEAH!!! :snigger:
Filmfour Weekly are showing Untold Scandal (the Korean version of Dangerous Liaisons) every night for the next week, at 12 p.m.
FilmFour subscribers can see Shinya Tsukamoto's Vital on Tuesday 11th April at midnight. Goody!
You're really lucky guys. I'm really jealous!!!
Tonight's FilmFour fare:
My Neighbour Totoro - on right now!
Versus - 12.05 am
I'm now kicking my own arse that we cancelled our subscription :lol:
Yeah me too - i used to have FilmFour but it went crap for a while with way too many repeats once you'd seen a week of it that was it for a month. Now it seems to be a much more varied line up of films.
They showed Graveyard of Honour last night. Not sure if it was the Miike of Fukusaku version tho.
TONIGHT ON BRAVO!
IMPRINT - Takashi Miike's entry to the Masters of Horror.
12:30 Bravo +1
Thanks for the heads-up G - duly taped and will watch probably later today when Astrid's having her afternoon nap :tiphat: Alex moved yours and Jim's posts to the Masters of Horror thread btw, so you guys could discuss more freely there
Bugger. Missed it. Ah well, knowing Bravo, I imagine I'll be able to catch one of the 78685674638644 repeats.
I thought this was worth mentioning, because it could make a serious difference to UK viewers. I know Mandi & Alex will be pleased to hear, this because they cancelled their subscription ages ago and have occasionally regretted it. FilmFour will be a free channel from July, available to everybody with digital television. I'm a subscriber, so I got a letter this morning, but I thought several people on here would want to know. If you've already got digital, then you'll get FilmFour for free from July. They're also starting at 3 p.m. rather than 6.
Woohooo!!! :dance: Thanks for an awesome bit of news Jim - I am so pleased that we'll be getting the new improved FilmFour back, and this time we won't have to pay for it!
As I've just discovered, there will now be advert breaks, which is a bit of an arse. Channel 4 are pretty good with their ad break in films though, so let's hope they do it as well as possible. It's not perfect, but many of the films are still absolutely essentially viewing, even with breaks.
Well, I guess since they're abolishing the subscription service they'll have to get their cash from somewhere, and if they keep on bringing the good titles and an extra three hours' telly a day for no cost to the consumer, I'll quite happily suffer their crappy ad breaks
That's what I figured. It's still the best movie channel available, so I'll happily sit through the ad breaks.
