G. 2006. Cute animated family film about a put-upon kid who turns a hose on ants in his garden. The ants get even by shrinking him to their size. It’s all good fun though never quite as exhilarating as some of the other animated offerings. Nicolas Cage, Julia Roberts. 8.30pm, One
M. 2005. Lacklustre supernatural thriller with nurse Kate Hudson accepting a job to look after the frail John Hurt in a gothic mansion. It features the inevitable attic – Hudson is told not to enter but she does. Not much of this adds up to anything resembling suspense and Hudson’s nurse would be lucky to hold down a job. 9.30pm, Nine, NBN
M. 2008. Tautly directed Australian thriller with Travis Fimmell as a psychopathic killer and Theresa Palmer as his none-too-bright sexy girlfriend who invade the home of a wealthy agoraphobe. Knowing his only hope is to use his wits against the two, the prisoner concocts a scheme that promises to make them rich. Can he turn the tables? 9.15pm, SBS ONE
M. 2009. Riveting true-life tale of espionage, set during the Reagan years, with small-time businessman Guillaime Canet as the unlikely conduit for a Soviet spy, leaking devastating intelligence to the West. Desperate to escape his predicament, he is forced to continue, risking his life and ruining his marriage. All more remarkable because it actually happened. Emir Kusturica.
