Weekend TV Top 10: 01-07-2011
Hello and welcome to our weekly Friday afternoon series where we highlight the best films to watch on TV during the weekend from Friday evening till Sunday night. See what those films are 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 as well as films that play during normal waking hours and films that we haven't recommended before.
