M. 2011. Rom-com with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher as friends who almost ruin everything by having sex. They decide on a ‘‘no-strings attached’’ relationship, with no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting and no flowers. But can their friendship survive? 8.30pm,Gem
M. 2000. Free-spirit Juliette Binoche blows into town and captivates taste buds with her delicious chocolate creations. The ‘‘respectable’’ mayor wants her banished but we know he’ll chew some chocs too. Chocolate box of a film looks gorgeous but isn’t as tasty as its title suggests. Johnny Depp. 9.30pm, Go!
MA. 1991. Violence is piled on violence as burntout investigator Bruce Willis stumbles across a conspiracy involving gambling and sports and goes in for the bust with his old footy mate Damon Wayans. Lack of humour, an underdone screenplay and reliance on stunts becomes tedious. As the scouts say – be prepared.
Movie of the Week 9.40pm, 7TWO
M. 1993. Shattering, memorable drama adapted from Thomas Keneally’s novel about Oscar Schindler, who gave sanctuary in his factories to large numbers of Polish Jews during WWII. Almost perfect cast with Liam Neeson as Schindler, Ben Kingsley as his foreman and Ralph Fiennes as an awful Nazi. Filmed documentary-style in black and white, the movie is a triumph for art.
