M. 2008. In the mid­dle of a cool party, be­ing videoed by one char­ac­ter, a gi­ant mon­ster, ac­com­pa­nied by smaller spi­der-like crea­tures, ar­rives to de­stroy Man­hat­tan. The video keeps rolling to record this, as the mil­i­tary tries to kill them and peo­ple run for their lives. Not that great but di­rec­tor JJ Abrams knows his au­di­ence and serves up young, male fare with aplomb. 9.30pm, 7MATE

M. 2008. Ec­cen­tric com­edy with Ja­son Se­gal as a loser who is dumped by his girl­friend. Hop­ing to for­get her, he flies to Hawaii to meet her again with her English rocker boyfriend, played by Rus­sell Brand. Se­gal dom­i­nates the film with his sad sack per­sona, but he’s sup­ported by a be­liev­able and com­i­cal cast. Kris­ten Bell. 11pm, ABC1

MA. 1970. Up­per-class Jack Ni­chol­son gives up his ca­reer as a concert pi­anist to work on oil-rigs and live his life in a squalid suc­ces­sion of bars and mo­tels. Bob Rafel­son’s multi award-win­ning film is a riv­et­ting look at the gen­er­a­tion who dropped out. The cast in­cludes Billy Green Bush, Fannie Flagg and Sally Struthers.
