      At the moment there are some nice films on at the moment in the cinema, but at this time of the year they are saving up the big ones for next month as it will coincide with the holiday period (aka Christmas).

      I guess the same was the same last year.
      that could explain the 3 absolute corkers that sky premier have lined up for next week.

      I have to agree.

      Hollywood's standards continue to drop.

      Many TV dramas exceed the quality of the average Hollywood movie by a country mile these days.

      Hollywoods idea of a Blockbuster is to cram a movie full of CGI. Decent acting and a good story has gone the way of the dinosaur.

      It's just the same as with Music. But the Entertainment Industries never look inward for an answer to their declining sales and just blame Piracy for all there ills.

      Re: B movies

      One night out at the movies for the average family = about 50
      356 night of Sky movies = 144.

      So you can have Sky movies for a year for what it costs for 3 nights out. No brainer for most families.

      Let's face it Tom, we have a sweet little baby troll who has decided to come back to the forum.

      Perhaps one day he will be allowed out on his own so that he can buy a bag of sweeties.

      Old thread, I know… but I am curious… This is going to be shocking, I know. Blasphemy. Crucified and all.

      Why has the Twilight Saga not made it onto Sky Subscriptions. All the recordings I have of it came from Film 4 HD. Sadly apart from the very last film. Never got around to seeing part 1 until last night. Now I'm so intrigued to see part 2. Yet it's a 2012 film and here we are nearly 2015…

      Heck, Lord of the Rings never came to Sky until this year… Though I owned them from DVD soon as they were released but still…

      Re: B movies

      I'm not sure why this is the case.

      Just looking and I see that both Breaking Dawn Part 1 & Eclipse are available to rent at 2.99 (SD) or 3.49 (HD).

      Yeah but usually after a while they've made it to Sky subscriptions. Then they go back to rent after many months. Or whatever the duration is.

      Though, I could have sworn Part 2 was on the store a month or two ago. As I remember seeing them all listed.

      Re: B movies

      Much of it will be down to agreements with the different companies who distribute the films.

      In 2012 Sky did a big thing for James Bond to mark the 50th Anniversary and the release of Skyfall on Box Office/Sky Store. This was repeated around 6 months later when Skyfall was aired on Sky Movies Premier.
