    Movies Showing IE & UK Channels Weekend 5th July.


    Highlights:

    Reservoir Dogs (1992)
    The Woman in Black (2012)

    Got a bit more picking with my inclusion and may have overlooked some movies on the Horror Channel and elsewhere.

    Also my list shows things airing after 18:00, so they maybe other films on during the day?

    James Bond season continues on RTE and movies not included on the list.

    First 8 are repeats from last week.
    Had to double check listings to see if my source was showing correct info.

    Other than repeated movies mentioned last week, only highlight I spotted was maybe ' Beautiful Creatures (2013) '

    Enjoyed the film for what it was an okay film. Not a good addition to the franchise. Can not stand Jason Clarke. Enjoyed the eye-candy of Emilia Clarke. All redundant now as the new film, puts all films after II into alternative timelines.



    As I'm posting starting now on RTE 2 is
    Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

    Hi Corkie, I've signed up to themoviedb just now and have started to try to create a list like your one above but I can't see anywhere I can select channels and dates to create my list. can u give me a few indicators please ? thanks


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,132 ✭✭✭ corkie


    @padjocollins You need to input them details yourself in the description box for each film.

    Go to your list and select edit + add/edit option. Each film/show has a description box for every title.

    Here is another example list with different details: - https://www.themoviedb.org/list/111663

    Your list are very useful but a lot of work I'd say.
    so you probably get the list of upcoming stuff off of
    https://entertainment.ie/tv/movies/ and then you create you list of movies you think are good/half decent edit the description for channel info, date, rating and so on ? Would be great if you could keep doing it and keep the list fresh . I'd follow/subscribe to you on themovidedb if that were possible. thanks

    ^^^ You got it. It takes a bit of time to maintain and edit with correct details.

    Have mentioned before where I sourced the details from.

    Also something I started last summer for summer season of movies.

    With that ending (or almost ended), only seams to be repeats of previous weeks on now.

    Not something I ever planned do, all year round.

    Edit: If you may have noticed it was the same list edited and shows deleted from prior week.
    So you could follow changes to it, with something like https://visualping.io/ (or any website page).
