M1979. Deepspace freighter is invaded by a murderous alien which eliminates crew members one by one. Knockout spine-tingler that prompted three sequels and various rip-offs, scores through fine special effects, realistic, grungy spaceship interiors and Ridley Scott’s direction. Scares the heck out of you from beginning to end. Sigourney Weaver. 9.30pm, Go!
AV. 2006. Fascinating US take on the HK thriller Infernal Affairs with cop Matt Damon as a turncoat revealing police information to Mob boss Jack Nicholson. In turn, undercover cop Leonardo DiCaprio is hardwired into Nicholson’s outfit trying to find out who the police informer is. Who’ll find out first? Great performances all round.
