10 Cloverfield Place
I meant 10 Cloverfield Lane. Seem to have mixed it up with 10 Rillintgon Place, which as far as I know isn't on NOW TV, but well worth tracking down for cracking performances from Dicky Attenborough and John Hurt.
Agree with the two Cloverfield films @Anonymous User , 10CL was surprisingly tense. Did you know there's a third film coming out towards the end of the year, originally titled God Particle (but that may change) and set in outer space, so again a very different feel to the first.
...set in outer space,
Bit of a spoiler! Will be interested to see how a third movie (and possible others) play out. The connection between the first two is tenious, if there is any at all, and I would expect much the same again. The most disappointing outcome would be a sequel that follows on from either movie!

The French Movie 'The Intouchables' is great. Surprised at the lack of quality in the world movie section. Plenty out there.
@Anonymous User You can't beat World Cinema in my opinion. 😉
I am quite partial for K drama and J drama myself. 🙂
Wednesdays are the day that the Cinema Pass add a world cinema film as their premiere for the day (today's is Operation Chromite). Admittedly it’s not a huge selection but hopefully with those regular additions over time it will grow. For horror fans there’s been some good world cinema additions lately - When Animals Dream, Alena, Cub, Evolution spring to mind.
I’m also a big Asian horror fan and admittedly the selection of that on any of the major streaming services isn’t great, Amazon’s probably slightly better but not by much. That’s where good old DVDs and Blu-rays still come out on top for me.
@caseyb1993 Ah alas I don't think there is. I just know that when Sky Movies changed to Sky Cinema they introduced the world cinema premiere each Wednesday to try and encourage more world cinema fans. Better than nothing!
The Girl With All The Gifts was a cracking watch, a zombie (strictly speaking they are infected by a fungus but you get the idea!) film where hybrid children could be the answer to a cure and are being held in secret military facilities for experimentation ... naturally things don't go to plan. Superb acting from all concerned especially the young Sennia Nanua playing Melanie and Glenn Close as a less than benevolent scientist. Plenty of tension and everything moves along at a pace, with some great deserted post-outbreak scenes around London, think 28 Days Later meets Day of the Triffids.
Hi there! My first post here on the Now TV forum! Yay! It's nice to meet everyone!
I was just wondering if it was at all possible to maybe get some Japanese anime movies added to the Sky Cinema Pass line-up with their English subtitles at some point? English subtitled anime movies such as the Studio Ghibli ones (Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Ponyo, etc), A Silent Voice, Your Name, Akira, Perfect Blue, Vexille etc?
Welcome @Anonymous User! It is always nice to meet another anime fan! 🙂
You can't beat Studio Ghibli can you? "Only Yesterday" is my abolute favourite S.G movie. At the moment, I don't think NOWTV are adding anime movies as I have been begging for them myself. 😄
Viceland on the entertainment pass currently have some (dubbed) anime which is a great start so we may get some anime movies one day. 😉
I will tag my good forum pal @Andy who is getting into anime himself. 😉
@Anonymous User Welcome to the forum! Hey we like anime around here! Well, some of us do anyway! Would be great to see some anime movies on here, I'll be honest though I can't remember seeing much if anything in the past. Basically the NOW TV pass mirrors Sky Cinema so if they get it we should get it. If you have the entertainment pass there some anime from the Viceland channel - Cowboy Bebop and Tokyo Ghoul (just watching that myself!)
Theres also a dedicated anime topic over in the Off Topic section, feel free to join in with our resident forum expert @caseyb1993 😉
@Anonymous User No way!! Did someone mention monkey movies!!!! Omg I'm obsessed with Planet of the Apes, one of my all time favourite series of movies!! Yeah I love the new ones, so realistic and Caesar is awesome, that's what I love about the POTA movies, I always end up cheering on the apes!
if you've not seen War yet I'd definitely try and catch it before it leaves, best of the three seriously!!
There's a special on War in the Cinema Pass and they've got all of the original films (apart from Battle for some reason) as well as the Tim Burton version - Conquest is probably my favourite of the lot, great 'what if' alternative origin story ....
....I could talk about Apes all day!!
@Anonymous User I have to admit, Ape movies don't really do it for me.
I did enjoy Peter Jackson's King Kong remake though. I even cried at the end. 😞
Jack Black was out of place there though. 😄
@Andy Yeah, Bad Ape (voiced by Steve Zahn) was absolutely brilliant, I really loved all of the more light-hearted comic relief moments he provided throughout so much
@caseyb1993 That's ok, one man's trash is another man's treasure as they say...
Nothing wrong with being difffent at all
Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is another super must-add new movie to the line-up at some point too, I saw that one twice at the cinema when it first came out and loved it to pieces
Have you watched any of the original ape movies? If you enjoy the new ones then I'd definitely give some of the originals a go given most are on NOW TV - PoTA is of course the classic that everyone should watch with the killer ending that isn't a killer ending cos everyone knows it now! Summing them up in one sentence PoTA and Beneath are both good 'thought-provokers', Escape is the comedy one with the shocker ending, Conquest (my fave) is the 'origin' story as long as you ignore the massive time travel plot hole and Battle is the rubbish one that isn't on NOW TV anyway. As for the Tim Burton one, nobody seemed to like that, but I think it's a fun and watchable slice of alternate ape goodness!
