MOON!! QUANTUM OF SOLACE!! TERMINATOR!! I LOVE YOU, MAN!! STATE OF PLAY!! RELIGULOUS!! AWAY WE GO!! April Premiere Dates!!
I am – Hercules!!
Inspired by the critics' best-of-2009 lists, I’m experimenting again, this time with a list of theatrical features I think may be new to cable in April. (If I’m missing anything, be sure to point it out. I’m particularly keen not to miss the documentaries and indie films when they roll around. Did I miss “Brothers Bloom”? What about “Drag Me To Hell”?) I threw in the scores from the top critics at Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic to help sort out movies viewers might be keen to pursue.
I’ve arranged the titles chronologically by cable premiere date to make it most useful to people with DVRs:
STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI
AWAY WE GO
I HATE VALENTINE’S DAY
DIM SUM FUNERAL
RUDO Y CURSI
I LOVE YOU, MAN
JULIE & JULIA
The Movie Channel
QUANTUM OF SOLACE
STATE OF PLAY
THE VILLAGE BARBERSHOP
IT MIGHT GET LOUD

Not as good as the original BBC series, but really quite enjoyable. Looking forward to watching that one again. <p> Also, surprisingly, looking forward to watching QoS again. I was so underwhelmed when seeing in theaters, and never wanted to actually pay any real money to see it again or go out of my way to rent it. Been waiting to see when it would show up on Showtime or whatever, and now it is. Maybe I'll think its a little less stupid on this second go-round. Probably not though.

...have been on cable for at least two months.
April 1, 2010, 11:48 a.m. CST
wtf could be on the other 2 discs. hopefully a couple of movies that dont suck also..
April 1, 2010, 11:49 a.m. CST
Although...and this may be asking a bit much...listing the premieres of new movies on Basic Cable channels would be kinda cool too.
April 1, 2010, 1:40 p.m. CST
Like we don't get enough of these already. I'm calling it: this gets a week or two at max before Herc shuts down the comments on these too.

most disappointing fucking movie in 2009. fuck you McG... that movie could have been EPIC- but some how you fucked that up! HOW?

In which I decide what i want to watch and when as oppossed to the Networks making their own programming schedules.<p>and SF:TLOCL deserves no mention whatsoever.I'm more than onfident that the Tekken Movie is better than that piece of shit.

which was utterly disasterous and completely ruined the film for me. T4's story was bar the beginning was utter incomprehensible rubbish. meryl streep was the best thing about julie and julia. amy adams is cute as a button but the stuff about julie powell's blogging was uninteresting and should have been axed. meryl over sandra. meryl's was a great performance. oscar worthy absolutely.

...since Maher is a HBO guy.

Such a lousy movie network.

...has been on STARZ before. I recorded it on March 16th.
April 1, 2010, 8:23 p.m. CST
But for people in their late 20's.

...I like your recommendations but it does feel like another quick way to pimp out more Amazon.com up-to-8%-commission links. At least try and add something beyond some quick digits from Rotten Tomatoes. Do it like Harry does, where he writes in a little blurb on his thoughts of each movie. This is why I also don't find your Tuesday DVD/Blu-Ray "article" all that interesting too. A description of one or two titles, then 1000 Amazon.com links (many of them repeats no less). You gotta add at least some depth to these articles Herc if you want to have repeat viewings.

I knew SCC was cancelled, but it was still what my mind went to. This feature is not needed and seems just another excuse for an article filled with amazon links.

Amazing performance. He's a terrific actor.

Gentlemen Bronco's followed by Moon. I did end up liking Bronco a little more than I thought I would but really loved Moon. Really looking forward to seeing more films from Duncan Jones now.

what are the odds that people have the same cable channels as Herc? and who watches tv anymore? for movies?
April 2, 2010, 1:06 p.m. CST
Is he mad?
April 3, 2010, 4:03 p.m. CST
setting some kind of record from theatre to dvd release?
