  • Nice way of saying OLD!

    Feb 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Less Expensive alternative
    Cons: No first run movies.

    Summary: An "encore performance" of a television show is simply a way to say "re-run" without the negative connotation. Thus you'd expect to see somewhat older movies on a channel called "Encore", and that's just what you get. ... read more

  • WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?

    Jul 21, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Movies I _WISH_ I could enjoy watching
    Cons: Marred by the omnipresent and distracting logo

    Summary: I am a movie nut. I love most ALL flicks, no matter how old. So, for me it's not whether they are 1st run or not. What I can NOT understand is why ENCORE and its parent company feel they must place their large and distracting logo in the right bottom ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low monthly price, occasional good movie
    Cons: Too many bad movies

    Summary: I am reall surprised to see all the good things people have to say about the Encore Movie channel (are we getting the same one at our house?). I guess it just goes to show how tastes can vary and how differences can manifest themselves. Personally, I ... read more

  • "Encore"- nothing but reruns

    Jun 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: a few good movies
    Cons: most of the movies are really old

    Summary: Encore is a movie channel that primarily shows movies from the 70's, 80's, and the early 90's. I have rarely seen a movie from 1999. Encore picks the old classics and plays them again. Hence the name "Encore". If you're old school, than ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great movies
    Cons: some people don't like seeing old movies

    Summary: I wanted to get a movie channel that showed great movies all the time. My first thought was Starz so that was what I got. I soon found that Starz played the same movies over and over. I called up a friend and he told me about Encore. I decided what ... read more

    May 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Movie: Classics and New Movies, Low Cost
    Cons: Only Come In In One Room

    Summary: When I first upgraded my cable system, I wanted the cheapest plan that would allow me to watch the Yankees, which is on MSG. So along with my package came two movie channels, Encore and STARZ. I usually don't watch movie channels, but one day I decided ... read more

  • An above average movie channel

    May 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great movies which are not shown too frequently
    Cons: If you liked Godzilla, you'll hate Encore

    Summary: Encore is far superior to the other movie channels available. HBO and Showtime show the same blockbuster movie (a genre which does not intrigue me very much) about ten times a week. This is not the case on Encore. Encore shows a movie never more ... read more

    Pros: not many
    Cons: They ran the same movies over and over and over and over.

    Summary: We subscribed to the Encore channels for about six months. I was really looking forward to watching the mystery channel and the love channel. Was I disappointed. They ran the same movies over and over and over and over. Some of the movies were very ... read more

    Pros: Wide selection of movies
    Cons: Movies air numerous times, making for repetitive programming

    Pros: Show good movies
    Cons: Can think of any real bad ones

    Summary: I just got digital cable and with it came Encore. I like it very much. This channel I do not pay for, it came with the cable hookup. Not that I would not have minded to pay for it, but I guess it is not a premium movie channel like HBO or ... read more

    Nov 29, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Trying to do something
    Cons: Grade B

    Summary: Encore has gotten better. Or I should say all of the Encores have gotten better. There are so many Encores now that it's hard to keep track of them all. Encore means coming back to satisfy the audience after a good performance. And there ... read more

    Pros: No commercials, good selection
    Cons: Repeat programming, older movies

    Summary: The Encore Movie Channel is a veritable clearing house of movies from black and white films to modern day motion pictures. While some of their programming can be seen as a definite kick-back to USA's penchant for B-movies, quite a few of them are ... read more
