Weekend TV Top 10: 29-04-2011
Hello and welcome to our weekly series where we highlight the best films to watch over the weekend. The Royal Wedding of William and Kate got in the way yesterday but Saturday and Sunday still offer some enjoyable uses of your time. See what films are on offer, after the jump.
This top ten list is by order of appearance rather than ranking and therefore the number 1 film is not necessarily better than the number 10 film and vice versa. It is also skewed favourably towards classic films and South African/African films.
