COOL RUNNINGS

7PM, 7FLIX PG. 1993. The true story of four Ja­maicans plan­ning to com­pete as bob­sleigh rac­ers at the 1988 Win­ter Olympics in Al­berta, Canada. This is a pop­u­lar, true life, un­der­dog tale that stars fun­ny­man John Candy amongst other fun­ny­men, in­clud­ing Doug E. Doug. Good times for the whole fam­ily.

THE GREY

10.30PM, SEVEN MA. 2011. The cap­ti­vat­ing Liam Nee­son heads up this ex­cit­ing tale of sur­vival, which is made all the bet­ter thanks to its truly con­vinc­ing char­ac­ters and a sur­pris­ing philo­soph­i­cal agenda that weaves through­out it. Qual­ity Satur­day night view­ing.

THE WORDS

8.35PM, SBS M. 2012. The per­for­mances through­out this film are the stand­out, par­tic­u­larly Jeremy Irons as The Old Man. And as J.K. Sim­mons ap­pears as a rather un­nec­es­sary char­ac­ter, it’s funny how you sud­denly wish the whole movie was about him.

Doug E. Doug.
