Week End TV

This week, I’m assuming that you have your early evenings all sewn up with Channel 4, so its launching into a Late Start to Friday – Bowfinger, a director intends to use low-fi reality footage to create a scifi film, but inadvertently films the incurse of some inept aliens to earth  – ITV1 at 10.35pm.  If you prefer your scifi less ‘reality TV, you can go for The Bourne Identity on ITV2 at 10pm.

Saturday sees a choice between the original Die Hard (1988) at 9pm on Channel4 or The Naked Gun (1988) at 11.10 pm on E4. If you’d rather keep it family friendly – try the Jaden Smith starring remake of The Karate Kid (2010) at 6pm on Film4.

The Late late offerings are slightly ‘better’ – post pub is served well with Phil Tippet’s Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation (2004), 1.40am on Movie Mix; or horror flick Beneath (2007) at 1.20am on Film4.

Sunday is more varied.
Comedy fantasy horror Black Knight (2001) is at 7.10pm on Film4,  whilst the talons of star trek are seen in the Jonathan Frakes directed thriller Clockstoppers (2002) on Viva at 9pm. Later fare includes the original Highlander (1986) on Channel5.

Short, sweet and to the point. Have a great weekend, the last before the clocks go back!
