Independent Film Channel, Channel #83

Great movies but few reruns so if you missed a movie once it chances are bleak of seeing it again. Speaking of bleak most of these movies are seriously depressing. They have some original programing and documentaries but the reason to watch this channel is for the movies.

That said tonight is the the premiere of an original mini-series called Bollywood Hero. It is a comedy that mixes real life actors and a fictional production. I never got in to Bollywood or most Indian films since the musical is the least enjoyable of all entertainment.

Some IFC fans are probably worried that this mini-series will garner such high ratings that the channel will switch to a less independent flavor. I'll try to watch all the 3 night event which would be the longest time I spent on IFC at primetime.

IFC seems to bundle their movies. What I mean is currently they are having a run of movies I find interesting but 3 months ago they had a run of the worst movies ever made.

Update: Speaking of great movies John Hughes died today. He made more great movies in his short life than most studios in the last decade.
National Lampoon's Vacation, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Home Alone Home Alone 2: Lost in New York and Curley Sue.
