Sky Movie Listings

OK! Sky have changed the name to Sky Cinema but it still does not make it any easier to find movies other than the one in special categories.

After watching all the popular movies and you are now looking for something different, you then have to scroll through the full list, alphabetically, using the remote. I usually get stuck a F***.

Sky also only rates movies from 1 to 5, so there is not much granularity, when ordering 1500 movies by rating.

Then you may like to check out Sky Movie Listings at

The site has its own ratings ranging from 0 to 100. Although at the time of writing the Lowest Rated movie was 'Son of the Mask' at 17.8 and the highest rated movie was 'The Godfather' at 81.5

There are some items rated 0 or N/A, but these are mostly specials about movies and you can easily exclude these by entering 0.01 in the Ratings From box.

Currently there are 232 movies rated 40 or below, you probably don't want to waste your time with these.

There are  1,149 movies rated 45+ and most of these are watchable, there are 599 movies rated 60+ which are good movies, and finally there are 168 movies rated 70+ which are really good movies.

The great thing about this website is that you can filter movies by Genre, Certificate, Rating, Year Released, Title, and you can choose the order in which the movies are displayed.

The title search is excellent. You can enter a word(or words) or part of a word from the title and it will find the movie.  To find The Matrix, I can enter just 'Matrix', or I could enter 'Tri Ma'.

Each movie has a link to the sky web site which will tell you when it is on  and if the option is available to either record the movies or download it. Where available there are also links to both the Imdb and Rotten Tomatoes web site for each movie.

So, give a try.
