PG. 2009. Lovers of The Secret Seven and The Famous Five might want to watch elsewhere as this bare-all BBC biopic shreds the curtain between Enid Blyton and her erstwhile readers. Arrogant, nasty, vindictive and a woeful parent, Blyton loved her fictional children more than her real ones. Fascinating biopic, with Helena Bonham Carter as Blyton, is compulsive viewing. 8.30pm, Movie One
M. 2010. Oscarnominated crime drama cowritten and directed by Ben Affleck about a bank robber who falls for a former hostage while trying to extricate himself from his violent gang. A relationship evolves between the two. Will he go straight? Jon Hamm. Rebecca Hall. 9pm, Go!
M. 1998. Hong Kong cop Jackie Chan flies into Los Angeles when a Chinese diplomat’s daughter is kidnapped. Local cops employ supermouth Chris Tucker to keep him sidelined but it’s not long before the dynamic duo go into action to break the case. Chan’s stunt choreography is amazing and even Tucker has his moments. 10.30pm, SBS TWO
PG. 1954. Romantic portrayal of the young Queen Victoria’s early years in which she defied the manipulations of politicians and court officials to chart her own course, including her marriage to the sympathetic Prince Albert. Surpassed by the superior The Young Victoria, though still good viewing. Romy Schneider, Adrian Hoven.
