The Fifth El­e­ment 7.30pm, Show­time Ac­tion ★★★ PG. 1997. From French cult di­rec­tor Luc Bes­son comes this sci-fi ad­ven­ture about 23rd­cen­tury cab driver, Bruce Wil­lis, who joins forces with the mys­te­ri­ous young Milla Jovovich to save the world from an evil force. This gen­uine sci-fi clas­sic is thrilling, funny, vis­ually ground­break­ing and fea­tures scene-steal­ing turns by Gary Old­man and Chris Tucker. Ma­te­rial Girls 7.30pm, Eleven ★★ PG. 2006. When their dad’s com­pany – the source of their funds to buy de­signer every­thing – goes down the gur­gler, Duff twins Hi­lary and Haylie leap into ac­tion to find out who’s re­spon­si­ble. Do you care? Un­less you’re un­der 14, you don’t. Im­ma­te­rial non­sense. Moulin Rouge 8.30pm, Ten, Ten SC ★★ M. 2001. Ex­trav­a­gant, kitsch, highly vis­ual mu­si­cal set in the Mont­martre night­club of Moulin Rouge in the late 19th cen­tury. Di­rec­tor Baz Luhrman goes way over the top in a film loved by some and re­viled by oth­ers. It comes at you like an ex­press train but is in­escapably self-in­dul­gent. Ni­cole Kid­man, Ewan Mc­gre­gor. The Host 9.30pm, SBS TWO ★★★ M. 2006. Quirky Korean film about a mon­ster that in­vades a wa­ter­front area of Seoul, wreak­ing havoc. When it grabs a stall owner’s daugh­ter how­ever, it brings down the wrath of dad, mum and whole fam­ily. Half com­edy, half hor­ror and dif­fer­ent from stock Hol­ly­wood crea­ture fea­tures. Song Kang-ho, Bae Doo-na.
