The first marathon to have a line up produced by... not me!

This time we have a special collection of films as picked by fellow viewer and champion disconnector Omega. However these films have been selected to make you stick around! Some of his personal favourites curated into a line up that will likely introduce you to some new classic movie hits. Here's Omega's breakdown of his movie selection:

Tremors - A young Kevin Bacon at his charismatic best in this surprisingly clever 80's creature feature. Very fun, well-paced, and only ONE effect that aged poorly.

12 Angry Men - Widely considered a classic of cinema, and featuring in many "Top 100 movies" lists, I figured it was worth featuring in the marathon. Good drama, not too lengthy and entirely unpretentious for a film of it's "status".

This Is Spinaltap - Classic cult comedy featuring the world's greatest* (fictional) rock band. Insanely quotable, hilariously dry and silly at the same time.

Big Trouble in Little China - Kurt Russell is the greatest action hero of all time as Jack Burton, a trucker stuck in a perpetual John Wayne impression, who finds himself in the centre of a gang war when things quickly become supernatural. Absolutely off-the-wall fun. John Carpenter doesn't usually do comedy, but he nailed it with this.

Movies will start at 6 PM (GMT+0) on a Saturday (Date shown on this page when finalised) once enough interest has been shown. There will be 10 minute breaks for you to grab a drink and walk around to re-energise for the next movie!
