M. 1997. Block­buster hit di­rected by James Cameron about the sinking of the Ti­tanic. Al­most ev­ery­thing is spec­tac­u­lar, from the mu­sic to the re­mark­able ef­fects, but the love story is tourist class and see­ing it on the row­boat-sized screen may not de­liver what you ex­pect. Nev­er­the­less, quib­bles are over­whelmed by the power of it all. Os­car win­ner for Best Pic­ture. Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet. 9pm, SBS TWO

M. 2010. Cow­ardly sol­dier Jackie Chan hides dur­ing a bat­tle, dis­cov­ers an op­pos­ing gen­eral still alive and takes him in for a re­ward. As the two travel and fight off ban­dits, a friend­ship forms. Lively his­tor­i­cal epic has plenty of laughs be­tween the ac­tion se­quences and Chan seems to be age­ing gracefully. Lee­hom Wang.
