10PM, NINE MA. 2012. A real winner, Rian Johnson’s flick is a twisty, whip-smart variation on The Terminator. The always-wonderful Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a hit man in the year 2042 who’s operating in a highly specialised niche. Do yourself a favour.
12.20AM, NINE MA. 2010. Patrick Hughes’ neo-Western, one of the best films of last year, is a modern spin on the revenge thriller. Has both bloody action and emotional depth with pitch-perfect performances from Ryan Kwanten, Steve Bisley and Tommy Lewis.
UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN
8.30PM, 7FLIX M. 2003. A recently divorced writer heads to Tuscany to start a new life. She seeks love, first with her married real estate agent, then with a charming stranger. Winning movie with a naturalistic central performance by Diane Lane and a sumptuous setting. A cut above most chick flicks.
