These are my recommendations for television movies this weekend and on into next week.
Some movie channels may be part of basic service and some are premiums.
If you see a movie you enjoy enough that you wish to own a copy of it, please come back here to purchase it.
(Most movies can be acquired by using the hyperlink on the name of the movie.)
In doing that you will be helping to support this website with your purchase.

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.
You can join or subscribe to a Yahoo group to get a weekly reminder with a link and list of movie names.
Last week is here. I hope you enjoy this new capability
and please share your thoughts on it with me via e-mail.

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
(if a channel has both East and West instances, only the eastern one is listed above).
