Count down 100 movies to see before you die with the M-Net Movies!
What is your absolute favourite film of all time? The one that opened your eyes, tugged at your heartstrings and made your soul leap with joy? Were you were born in the golden age of cinema? Is there a stack of fantastic features your like-minded friends and family have been raving about, which you’re sad to admit you haven’t seen YET? You now have the opportunity to tick off all the films you still need to watch – or enjoy again – before it’s time to kick the bucket!
M-Net and MultiChoice have created yet another exciting movies pop-up channel as a special treat to DStv Premium customers. Between Monday, 30 October and 2 December, the M-Net Movies Bucket List pop-up channel will count down 100 popular and iconic Hollywood movies to see before you die.
This selection of fine films and all-time favourites will be showcased on DStv’s channel 109 with the first of the 100 movies scheduled for just after 18:00 on. Thereafter, the countdown will continue all the way to the number 1 main attraction on Saturday, 2 December at 20:30. Depending on the duration and age-restrictions of these films, the daily countdown will kick off on weekdays at approximately 18:00 and on weekends just before or after 16:00.
To receive the nod for the coveted M-Net Movies Bucket List, compiled by an expert team of film fanatics, a movie had to be entrenched in popular culture, define an era, shift mediums, uproot the status quo, delight a variety of audiences, impress critics worldwide and be able to reignite your love for movies.
While M-Net Movies will share the titles from #100 to #11 on its programming schedules, the Top 10 films on the list will remain top secret. This means that the final films on the M-Net Movies Bucket List will only be revealed to DStv customers on the day of the screening, so you will have to be sure to tune in to channel 109 on the day that they air.
On top of the 100 must-see-movies-before-you-die-modern-day motion pictures, M-Net Movies will also fuel film fandom with the M-Net Movies Bucket List Bonus Features, as well as a fabulous viewer’s competition. To win big in the M-Net Bucket List viewer’s competition you have to curate your own the Top 10 movie list at mnet.tv/bucketlist. The competition closes on 30 November before the Top 10 hits your screens.
The M-Net Movies Bucket List Bonus Features will comprise additional classics which can’t be ignored but which will appeal to niche audiences. Among these titles are vintage silver screen darlings that were ground-breaking at their time, like Mary Poppins, Casablanca and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
The M-Net Movies Bucket List schedule (prior to the Top 10) will be published at www.mnet.tv, but you can also consult the Electronic Programming Guide or catch up on the films you’ve missed on DStv Catch Up Plus.
If the day’s countdown doesn’t start at exactly 18:00 or 16:00, M-Net will communicate start times on M-Net’s Facebook page
