I was thinking that there are a fair decent amount movies and documentaries on Free TV. Most people probably miss a lot of what's on due to the free-to-air TV guide being a bit tricky to navigate. So I'm creating a 'heads-up' thread to let everyone know when something worth watching will be on Free TV.

Feel free to add to this thread when you see a movie or documentary, as the more people contributing, the less likely something will be missed. I usually scan through the TV guide daily, so I should be able to update this regularly.

I think it will be best to limit this thread to just movies and documentaries. If we start including TV shows, it might become a bit hard to follow. But it might work depending how this thread goes.

I'm not including Foxtel movies in this thread because; A, I don't have Foxtel anymore, B, there are far too many movie channels to check.

I don't know how time zones will affect people in different states. I'm in SA, so it's Central Standard Time. I guess if someone lists a movie, check half an hour or an hour beforehand just in case.


We can use this as a template.

Yep, I Am Legend was a loose remake. It's sort of a zombie apocalyptic story, but it focuses more on being the only known survivor instead of being about zombies. And the zombies are very dated. Still an interesting watch.

I was also about to list The Wild Bunch tonight on GEM at 11pm. I just checked the guide to confirm the time and it has disappeared. What the f**k GEM, what the f**k. It's one of the best Westerns ever, so keep an eye open if it comes back.

Sick fat and nearly dead is a great story.
It actually inspired me to go on a 3 week fruit and veg fast. I am pretty healthy, not over weight or anything, but wanted to do a cleanse. The first 5 days were hard, but after that it was amazing how healthy and good I felt on the inside.
Well worth a look.

Another one to watch is called "Food Matters"

What if you were a Hollywood movie star with an obsession for cars and racing? You would probably read every script with even the tiniest link to the subject matter, in the hope that you could tell a great car story of the likes of "Grand Prix", "Le Mans" or "Mad Max". Then one day you happened to open your garage door and sitting there, right in front of you, was the film you had been searching for. This is what happened to Eric Bana and this time around, the co-star is his very own Ford GT Falcon Coupe- THE BEAST.
