Every week there will be a featured selection. It will be indicated here by having its text in red.
The featured selection has a full review with several purchase selections in the Agora.
If you see a movie you enjoy enough that you wish to own a copy of it, please come back here to purchase it.

South Pacific (1958) A Navy nurse must choose between love and prejudice during World War II. Not as good as some other Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals, but it's still theirs.

This is a work in progress. It definitely will change. I hope to improve its format as time passes.
Currently it is based on a weekly survey of what is upcoming from Thursday to the next Wednesday on
Turner Classic Movies, Fox Movie Channel, HBO(s), Cinemax(s), Showtime(s) and The Movie Channel.
Some movie channels may be part of basic service and some are premiums.
(if a channel has both East and West instances, only the eastern one is listed above).
