Movie of the Week Howl’s Mov­ing Cas­tle 8.30pm, SBS TWO ★★★★ PG. 2004. Ex­quis­ite ad­ven­ture from Ja­pan’s an­i­ma­tion ge­nius Hayao Miyazaki, based on a kids’ book about a girl who is trans­formed into an old wo­man by a witch. She en­gages the help of an­other ma­gi­cian, the mys­te­ri­ous Howl, who lives in a walk­ing cas­tle. A tri­umph of the imag­i­na­tion. Home for the Hol­i­days 9pm, 7TWO ★★★ M. 1995. Sin­gle mum Holly Hunter re­turns to the fam­ily fold for Thanks­giv­ing hol­i­day and is sud­denly awash in ec­cen­tric rel­a­tives. Barbed, funny com­edy di­rected by Jodie Foster will make you chuckle. Robert Downey Jr. Co­coon 9.45pm, Show­time Com­edy ★★ PG. 1985. Re­tirees have a close en­counter with some ami­able aliens who turn their swim­ming pool into a foun­tain of youth, lead­ing to ad­ven­tures both comic and pro­found.

Os­car­win­ning per­for­mance by Jamie Foxx as ‘‘The Ge­nius’’ Ray Charles el­e­vates this other­wise undis­tin­guished bi­og­ra­phy of a mu­si­cal leg­end. If you en­joyed Charles’ mu­sic, this is a must. A Carol Christ­mas 1.35am, Nine, NBN ★ PG. 2003. Tori Spell­ing as Scrooge? Spare us. This time the miser is a self­ob­sessed trash TV talk host who is re­deemed by the three ghosts. As bad as find­ing Tori’s Great­est Hits in your Christ­mas stock­ing.
