The Chron­i­cles of Nar­nia: Voy­age of The Dawn Treader 7.30pm, Show­time Pre­miere ★★★ PG. 2010. Fi­nal in­stal­ment in the C.S. Lewis tale takes Ed­mund (Skan­dar Keynes) and Lucy (Ge­orgie Hen­ley) aboard the ship Dawn Treader, with cousin Eus­tace (Will Poul­ter), King Caspian (Ben Barnes) and war­rior mouse Reepicheep. Though cheesy at times, it’s still great fun for all the fam­ily. I’ve Loved You So Long 9.30pm, SBS ONE ★★★★ M. 2008. Bravura act­ing from Kristin Scott Thomas as a wo­man re­leased af­ter serv­ing 15 years in jail for killing her child. She moves in with her sis­ter, with the film ex­plor­ing her cau­tious re­turn to nor­mal life. Pow­er­ful movie mak­ing. Elsa Zyl­ber­stein. As­sault on Precinct 13 8.30pm, One ★★★ M. 2005. Punchy re­make of John Car­pen­ter’s clas­sic about the iso­lated po­lice sta­tion that comes un­der siege from mys­te­ri­ous as­sailants dur­ing a night of wild weather. Ethan Hawke is the cop in charge as his staff and the crims join forces to fight off the as­sailants. Not the equal of the Car­pen­ter orig­i­nal, but there are solid thrills. Lau­rence Fish­burne. Dis­clo­sure 11pm, Gem ★★ MA. 1994. Not con­tent with leap-frog­ging him to a pro­mo­tion, ex­ec­u­tive Demi Moore letches af­ter co­worker Michael Dou­glas, lead­ing to some lurid se­duc­tion scenes and a sex­ual ha­rass­ment charge. What might have been an in­ter­est­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion of of­fice and sex­ual pol­i­tics of­fers lit­tle more than high­steam thrills.
