    Kisses is on RTÉ 2 at 0:30 tonight/tomorrow morning. Brilliant little Irish film from Lance Daly about two Dublin kids who run away to the city to escape their crappy home lives. There's some gritty realism hanging over it all the time but also a kind of magic coming from the kids and their innocence. Really worth staying up for or setting the DVR.

    The Funhouse which Tobe Hooper made between Salem's Lot and Poltergeist is on the Horror Channel at 10.45 Sunday. Good old fashioned fun

    Thanks for the recommendation. Recorded it when it was on and just watched it tonight. Kinda predictable but still entertaining and engaging. Definitely worth watching.

    Creepshow is on tonight on film4. I know it's a bit of a cult classic.

    Is it worth a look?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    Was wondering that myself!

    I saw it again a few years back, and while it has dated somewhat poorly as you'd expect, it's still good cheesey fun. Obviously, being in anthology form means some parts are more entertaining than others!

    This afternoon (16:15) TV3 is showing Hulk, the one directed by Ang Lee in 2003. I really enjoyed this one for its style and its different take on the superhero story, and I don't understand some of the negative reviews it got. Lots of "Hulk Smash!" but also a strong focus on character development and the side-effects of super-powers.
    This started on E4 half an hour ago, but if you get E4+1, it starts on there @ 7:20 PM!

    Tinker, Tailor,Soldier,Spy on ITV4 at 9.

    I think Ghost Protocol is my favourite M:I film (I need to rewatch Rogue Nation), it's so entertainingly watchable. One of those films I have to finish if I catch it on TV.

    TTSS is also excellent but a slow burner.

    Terminator 2 is airing tomorrow on TV3 at 11. Will probably be the Special Edition of the movie.

    Just spotted that Film4 is showing one of my favourite "undemanding" films this afternoon, 14:50 or 15:50 (+1): One Fine Day. Apparently, George Clooney doesn't like this film and wishes he hadn't made it, but he has a charming Cary Grant kind of thing going on, while Michelle Pfeiffer manages to be hard-nosed and luminous at the same time. Even their kids aren't as annoying as romcom kids can be.
