Noon, Gem

G. 1955. Ex­cel­lent Bri­tish PoW es­cape story is one of the best of the genre, con­cern­ing a group of Al­lied pris­on­ers who were im­pris­oned by the Ger­mans in me­dieval Colditz Cas­tle, con­sid­ered to be es­cape­proof. The pris­on­ers soon proved them wrong. Fine cast of Bri­tish reg­u­lars brings the story to life. John Mills, Eric Port­man.

M. 2008. Maybe not the best but per­haps the most spec­tac­u­lar is this big­bud­geted, though cliched drama of a huge cat­tle drive across Aus­tralia dur­ing World War II, with Ni­cole Kid­man as the English rose who in­her­its an out­back sta­tion and Hugh Jack­man in the John Wayne role of the abra­sive, two-fisted ram­rod. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, some scenes are spec­tac­u­lar, but the cringe quo­tient is also high.

bud­dies Zeke and Luther are joined by spe­cial guest stars Debby Ryan and cham­pion skate­boarder Tony Hawk, nick­named ‘‘The Bird­man’’, in a spe­cial se­ries fi­nale of the kids tele­vi­sion favourite, Zeke and Luther, which airs this week­end. Ryan is the star of Suite Life on Deck. Hawk is a world-fa­mous pro­fes­sional skate­boarder. The se­ries fi­nale is chock-a-block with big sur­prises and even big­ger stunts. Zeke and Luther stars Hutch Dano ( Ra­mona and Beezus) as Zeke, Adam Hicks ( How to Eat Fried Worms) as Luther, Daniel Cur­tis Lee ( Ned’s De­clas­si­fied School Sur­vival Guide) as Kojo and Ryan New­man ( Han­nah Mon­tana, Zoom) as Gin­ger. Talk about the end of an era.

Sun­day, 6pm, Dis­ney Chan­nel.

Tony Hawk.
