M. 2008. M. Night Shyamalan strikes again, this time with an apocalyptic drama in which people begin killing themselves for no apparent reason. Story flounders but the images Shyamalan projects are graphic and disturbing. 9.35pm, SBS TWO
M. 2009. Turn-ofthe-19th-Century Chinese banking dynasty needs an heir but there’s only one – a good-for-nothing son of the principal. He turns out to be better than his family expects, but disagrees with his father about business and – worse – has the hots for his stepmother.Hong Kong period piece. Aaron Kwok, Zhang Tielin. 11pm, Seven, Prime7
M. 2008. Madcap Coen Bros comedy about disgruntled CIA agent John Malkovich, whose tell-all memoirs end up in the hands of dopey gym employees Brad Pitt and Frances McDormand, who ill-advisedly try to blackmail him. George Clooney is around as the sex-obsessed lover of both McDormand and Malkovich’s wife. Some good chuckles. 11.10pm, Ten, Ten SC
M. 2005. George A. Romero returns with his fourth zombie movie, in which the last remaining humans are barricaded against the roaming undead. A script rich with satire has Denis Hopper as the head honcho running a kind of corporation while servile workers cull the zombies on their behalf. Too good to be relegated to this unearthly hour. John Leguizamo.
