It’s not Monday anymore, it’s MANDAY! That’s the idea at Sony Movie Channel, who launches their manly programming today. Every Manday they’ll feature badass, tough movies and they’re starting off with Johnny Mnemonic and Sniper, and future installments of their testosterone-tinged double features will be quite eclectic. Here are some of the movies coming up:
Three Stooges: Have Rocket
See no Evil, Hear no Evil
I don’t know which The Executioner that is, but I’m assuming the George Peppard spy movie, which looks awesome next to The Three Stooges.
By the way, I don’t get the Sony Movie Channel, but it seems pretty cool - an HD channel dedicated to uncut airings of the films from the Sony library. While Mandays lean on the masculine stuff, I imagine they have lots of content with which to fill the rest of the week with interesting, DVR-worthy films. I love the new trend towards studios getting cable channels because it gives them a reason to pull old films out of mothballs and get them back in circulation.
Here is where you can find the Sony Movie Channel on your local provider: DISH Network channel 386, DIRECTV HD CH 563, AT&T U-verse CH 1791.
Anyway, we have a Blu-Ray prize pack to give to you, featuring films that SMC will have on upcoming Mandays. The prize pack includes
and Black Hawk Down
Not bad! Just send me an email to devin at badassdigest.com with your name and address, with MANDAY in the subject line.
