JARHEAD

9.30PM, ONE MA. 2005. An ap­pro­pri­ately bru­tal adap­ta­tion of a Marine’s pre-Desert Storm ex­pe­ri­ences in Saudi Ara­bia and Kuwait. The first­per­son ac­count ticks boxes with its act­ing and cin­e­matog­ra­phy but lacks any real emo­tional depth. Stars Jake Gyl­len­haal and Jamie Fox, who are each im­pres­sive.

PSY­CHO

8.30PM, ELEVEN M. 1998. Director Gus Van Sant’s point­less re­make of Psy­cho nei­ther im­proves nor il­lu­mi­nates Al­fred Hitch­cock’s orig­i­nal mas­ter­piece, which is now im­mor­tal for its con­tri­bu­tion to the hor­ror genre. Not bad for a night in though.

SNAKES ON A PLANE

10.50PM, 9GO! M. 2006. An FBI agent takes on a plane full of deadly snakes de­lib­er­ately re­leased to kill a wit­ness be­ing flown to tes­tify against a mob boss. A slick ac­tion flick that is not meant to be taken se­ri­ously. Stars Samuel L. Jack­son and Ju­lianna Mar­gulies.

Jake Gyl­len­haal.
