TOP GUN

9PM, 9GO! PG. 1986. Stu­dents at the US navy’s elite fighter weapons school com­pete to be best in the class, and one dar­ing young pi­lot (played by Tom Cruise) learns a few things from a civil­ian in­struc­tor that are not taught in the class­room. A clas­sic and one of Cruise’s break­out roles that have made him the su­per­star he is to­day.

TWELVE MON­KEYS

9.05PM, SBS2 R. 1995. The plot here is a bit of a jumble, but the film does boast ex­cel­lent per­for­mances and mind­blow­ing twists. All in all, 12 Mon­keys a kooky, ef­fec­tive ex­pe­ri­ence, so give it a go.

DIE HARD 2

8.30PM, ONE M. 1990. The his­tor­i­cally un­flap­pable John McClane this time takes on ruth­less mer­ce­nar­ies who threaten to cause havoc in the com­mer­cial air­ways. This is a film that thank­fully never takes it­self too se­ri­ously and stars, of course, the gun­stas­tic Bruce Wil­lis and Bon­nie Bedelia.

Kelly McGil­lis and Tom Cruise.
