5 HD Movies Not to Be Missed on Satellite TV

103 10
Aside from sports, the biggest ticket in a satellite home entertainment package has got to be the options in movies.
Film network packages can deliver the latest and hottest pictures available in your home, while the independent and classic film channels round out the picture of modern and vintage cinema.
Where can you start when your satellite service gets connected? These 5 HD pictures should get things going immediately.
1.
Public Enemies.
Michael Mann is quietly building quite a resume for himself, from the stunning Collateral and Miami Vice to this picture.
You will almost never see a poorly executed shot or a carelessly designed set in a Mann film, and the professionalism is once again on display in this HD film lighting up satellite On Demand networks.
Johnny Depp does a terrific job as the outlaw Dillinger, while Christian Bale is characteristically tight-lipped but effective as the lawman on his tail.
2.
Broken Embraces.
If the film is by Almodovar, you would expect the star to be Penelope Cruz.
Broken Embraces delivers on that promise, with the results no less satisfying this time around.
Almodovar does his best (once again) to pay homage to Hitchcock's Vertigo while bringing something unique to the fold.
Broken Embraces proves yet again that the master has not lost his touch in the slightest.
3.
The Hangover.
While it may seem like just another frat-pack picture without Vince Vaughn in it, The Hangover shows a lot of restraint in avoiding the wild night of partying entirely.
As its title suggests, the focus is the all-too sober aftermath.
Zach Galifianakis goes a long way toward stealing this wild ride of a film, but Mike Tyson and Bradley Cooper definitely have their say before the show is over.

4.
Inglourious Basterds.
Though he seems to take extended pauses in between films these days, Quentin Tarantino can never leave his audience for too long.
In his latest borderline fantasy film, a band of American Jewish renegades tread across Europe in an effort to sabotage Nazi exploits during World War II.
Is Tarantino out to deliver pure cinema fun yet again? Absolutely, and while there's no need to consult your history book for this film, you also won't complain about the ride offered by the crafty director.
Inglourious Basterds is becoming as much of a hit in homes as it was in the theater.
5.
Nine.
Speaking of Penelope Cruz: Did you know she can dance? Cruz shows off her sultriest side yet in this remake of the Fellini classic.
Daniel Day Lewis plays the doomed director Guido, whose wife (Marion Cotillard) and mistress (Cruz) cannot help him get through the filmmaker's block that threatens to ruin the production.
It's a Rob Marshall musical with all the trimmings, including Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson.
