“ Sky Movies. „
SKY MOVIES CLASSIC is a movie channel available on the Sky Digital satellite television system in the UK. It is part of the 'Movie Mix' and is unavailable as a standalone channel.
As its name suggests Sky Movies Classic only shows 'classic' movies as opposed to more recent films. Having said that there are a wide range of movies that are shown. Some of the films that I am particularly looking forward to on this channel in the near future include:
THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD
Starring a variety of stars, this movie tells the story of Jesus, with Max Von Sydow in that role. Charlton Heston also stars as John the Baptist.
CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON
I remember watching this 'creature feature' on television years ago but have not seen it since. I remember being quite scared of it but I think that I will probably just find it amusing nowadays.
A classic science fiction movie from 1967 starring Jane Fonda as the title character. This is worth seeing just for Fonda's striptease during the opening credits, with the letters of the words placed in just the right (or wrong, depending on how you look at it) places to cover up her more personal areas!
Sky Movies Classic is also showing a season of Harold Lloyd movies this season - I remember seeing movies of his on BBC2 years ago when I was a child, and again I remember really enjoying them. I really hope that they live up to my memories when I see them again.
Simply put, Sky Movies Classic is a great channel if you like your movies 'old' as opposed to 'recent'.
