My Sky + … Movies in September

The final in The Hobbit trilogy, The Battle of the Five Armiesand the third Hunger Games instalment headline next month’s HD premieres on Sky’s movie channels.

But not to be overlooked are the channel debuts of Klute, The Getaway and McCabe & Mrs Miller on Classics, and of the Kill Bill and Sin City movies on Action.

Classics also has the excellent Gene Hackman thriller Narrow Margin and Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Love while Action’s acquisition of an exclusive as recent as 2014’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is refreshing, given it generally high-rotates relics.

Speaking of which, new to Extra next month is the poorly reviewed Ben Kinglsey miniseries Tut, which USA Today called an “overstuffed” melodrama.

“For a while, palace intrigue, Egyptian architecture and a few rousing battles are enough to keep Tut moving. But the farther it moves, the more it gets entangled in [a] demeaning queen-vs.-queen subplot, to the point where Tut vanishes from his own movie as thoroughly as he’s vanished from history.”

Variety said Tut’sflorid quality that can be intermittently fun, in a campy sort of way” while the New York Times dubbed it “slightly silly and mostly dull“.
