THIS TV

I stumbled across this cool cable network the other day. It's called THIS TV . It's a free movie channel that specializes in MGM and UA movies mostly from a pre-1986 catalog. From what I've seen there are quite a few low budget B-movie efforts and "grindhouse" as well as legitimate classics. There are also quite a few of the lesser-known movies from  names like Robert Mitchum, John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Burt Lancaster and more. 
They also have a nice collection of movies that just don't appear that much anymore like Cannon for Cordoba, Vigilante Force or Dillinger.


The movies are edited for length, nudity, and language -but with the older movies that not so much an issue. For me it's trove of spaghetti westerns, war movies, and low budget Sc Fi- with a few actual classics thrown in there- and the commercials allow me to grab a sandwich or work on a blog post.  Here are a few of the movies playing this month...
