FilmFour - I hate it! by Layla on 7 November 2003 12:06am
well only cause I don't get this station and 'A Private Function' is going to be shown on it and I wont be able to see it. It's got 4 stars in the Radio Times and everything. Bah Humbug! (sorry - going through a Monkees phase and this phrase was used very amusingly by a baddie in an episode!)
Do you guys in England automatically get FilmFour with your Sky Digital package or do yous have to pay for it too?
How many of yous have seen it? How does it compare to the rest of his films?

yours annoyedly, Layla.

I think Film Four is available only on subscription. Is 'A Private Function' the film with Dame Maggie Smith in it and it has something to do with a pig ? I've not seen it for over 10 years.
On the brighter side, i've ordered 'The Missionary' on DVD from Amazon. MP is great in it!

PF is available on DVD to buy/rent, you know? Extras include commentary by MP as well as A.Bennett & M.Mowbray. Cheaper to rent it at $4-10 or buy it at $15-20 (or $5-10 at half.com, etc) than to pay subscription costs for FilmFour, no?

Um...is the commentary only on the UK edition of PF? Because the DVD released on amazon.com doesn't look like it has any special features, which frustrates me.

Ack! I now have true empathy for all the others who have been victimized by this ludicris thing called DVD regions. Turns out the special features (including commentary) are only available on the UK edition of PF, not the U.S. version. Oh curses! They were released within a month of each other, so why couldn't they carry the same material?
