December Highlights


 

This December, HDNET MOVIES wants you to wrap up in your favorite blanket in front of the fireplace. Kick off your shoes. Take a load off. Lean back and enjoy a month long of cinematic gems. But first, “do you feel lucky?” Well, we hope you do because on Sunday, December 7th we have a MAKE MY DAY: DIRTY HARRY MARATHON. This all-day marathon features the Clint Eastwood classics, DIRTY HARRY, and SUDDEN IMPACT. And just in case you missed it, we bring upon the Christmas Cheer with the MAKE MY CHRISTMAS DAY MARATHON where we have even more films from this movie icon. Speaking of icons, on December 21st we celebrate SAMUEL L. JACKSON’S MF’ING BIRTHDAY with FREEDOMLAND, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, and NO GOOD DEED.

If you’re feeling in the mood *wink wink nudge nudge*, then our NAUGHTY OR NICE MARATHON may tickle your fancy. This three-night event from December 22nd through December 24th should fulfill every one of your fantasies when we air the likes of SHOWGIRLS, BREATHLESS, ELEKTRA LUXX, and so much more pleasurable encounters.

We will also will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY on December 20th. Feeling like a real tough guy? Join us every Thursday 9pET for TOUGH GUY THURSDAYS where we air back-to-back explosive action movies. This month we take a gander at Clive Owen in BULLET TO THE HEAD, Jackie Chan in THE TUXEDO, Bruce Willis in STRIKING DISTANCE, and a whole lot more.
