M. 1985. Sin­gle biker Cher tries to raise her son in a prej­u­diced small town. A young Eric Stoltz plays the teen who is highly in­tel­li­gent but has a mas­sive fa­cial de­for­mity. Peter Bog­danovich di­rects a tal­ented cast through this sen­ti­men­tal ode to small towns. Keep plenty of tis­sues handy. 8.30pm, Movie One

M. 2010. In 1980s Eng­land, in­ept teen Craig Roberts, pre­oc­cu­pied with the state of af­fairs be­tween his par­ents makes it his mis­sion to win the heart of quirky schoolgirl Yas­min Paige and lose his vir­gin­ity in the process. Australia’s Noah Tay­lor plays dad in this Bri­tish com­edy pro­duced by Ben Stiller. 9.30pm, Go!

AV. 2010. Postapoc­a­lyp­tic shenani­gans with Den­zel Washington a sur­vivor tramp­ing across a razed Dystopian land­scape car­ry­ing the world’s last copy of the Bi­ble and a deadly samu­rai sword. Gary Old­man wants the Bi­ble and sets his min­ions to get­ting it back, re­sult­ing in nu­mer­ous scenes of comic book vi­o­lence. Solid sci fi/ thriller fare. 10pm, One

AV. 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. Hawke is the be­lea­guered cop in charge as his staff and the crims in the cells join forces to fight off the as­sailants. Per­haps not the equal of the Car­pen­ter orig­i­nal, but solid, white-knuckle thrills. Ethan Hawke, Lau­rence Fish­burne.
