What to watch #5: March 6 – 12

Once again I’m only posting TCM recommendations, but this time for good reason: I’m sick! The unwanted visitor of the common cold that usually strikes on mid-winter break  has decided to strike on the week AFTER mid-winter break, a week when I have three big tests. As a result of my extra need for sleep and extra need for study time, I had to rush this post a bit. To compensate, there will once again be a song of the week at the end. Items marked with an asterisk are “new to me” films that I hope to record/watch. All times are in EST and subject to change; please check your local listings.

  1. Once again, nothing to recommend from the ones you haven’t seen, because I haven’t seen them either! And since I don’t get TCM, I’m a little peeved that I’ll be missing tomorrow’s Ann Sheridan doubleheader…


    1. Bummer that you don’t get TCM! I’ll have to start incorporating more Netflix/Internet Archive/etc. recommendations in these posts for those who don’t have access to The Greatest Cable Network of All Time.


      1. And I agree…it IS the Greatest Cable Network of All Time! I wish I could just pay for that channel alone…I’d do it in a heartbeat. And how very nice that you’d incorporate more recommendations from other more accessible (for me, anyway) movie outlets…much appreciated!

        And I just checked out my local Redbox machine for the first time…I don’t think they had one film that was released before 2008. Morons! I guess I’ll just wait for Redbox Classic to make its debut…


        1. Yeah, Redbox is only good for new-ish (and sometimes independent) films. I do like to use it every now and then for stuff I missed in the theater, but they need to step up their game by adding classics in.
