I have never really been a big movie fan. I mean there are movies that I like and I will watch anything, well, almost anything except "reality shows" (they're not) and a lot of the current fare that the networks have on. But I don't have a collection of DVD's and VHS movies. I don't rush out to watch new movies. I rather prefer to watch the History Channel, Discovery Science, Fox News Channel, The Military Channel, Adult Swim, etc. But I have been really getting into a new channel on satellite called "Chiller". It is a horror genre channel and they show some great old horror films. Today while I was getting ready for work, I had "Frankenstein 1970" on, it was made in 1958 and starred Boris Karloff. It was great. And while I have been sitting here, I am watching "Monster on the campus", LOL. Talk about maximum cheesy-ness! I think perhaps though my favorite is, they show the old "Alfred Hitchcock presents" shows and "Night Gallery" which I remember watching years ago . If you have Direct TV or maybe Dish, you can find it on channel 257 on DirectTV. I don't think Cox cable here in phoenix has it, too bad. It is just great. They ran an Alfred Hitchcock presents marathon last night and it was great. I was up till the wee hours of the morning eating nutter butter and watching. Sometimes TV does have some good things to offer other than stupid game & reality shows or crap like desperate housewives, American Idol or Grease. I would rather watch films made 30 years ago (I am a sucker for black & white anyway) than watch the current tripe that hollywood and the networks churn out.
