Armchair Viewing: Sunday selection

Posted by Justin Bateman | Sun, 07/02/2010 - 13:08

Three films caught my eye in today's listings and they're all well worth a mention.  

First up is Flash Gordon (5.45pm-8pm, ITV4), starring Sam Jones as the eponymous hero. Sam who? Yeah, doesn't matter. The supporting cast boasts Max von Sydow as Ming the Merciless, Brian Blessed as Prince Vultan, Topol, Timothy Dalton and even Peter Duncan from Blue Peter. It's gloriously camp and colourful and the special effects are pretty laughable by today's standards but it's tons of fun and the Queen theme tune is great.
