Robots (2005) U 1.30PM, CH4 From the makers of Ice Age, this fun sci-fi animation ticks all the right boxes with its marvellously realised tin-can characters and a jolly tone. Ewan McGregor and Robin Williams provide the voices of Rodney Copperbottom and his friend, Fender Pinwheel (above).
School Of Rock (2003) PG 5.10PM, TV3 Jack Black is perfectly cast in this fun family comedy. He stars as an aspiring rock star who poses as a supply teacher to make ends meet, and sets about turning his new pupils into his personal backing band.
Thor (2011) 12 6.50PM, CH4 Australian hunk Chris Hemsworth’s grounded Norse god has his name on the title, but Brit Tom Hiddleston, as his troublesome adoptive brother, Loki (right), won legions of admirers in this first film, directed with flair by Kenneth Branagh. The villains are the impressively chilling Frost Giants, though Loki has a go, too.
The Hangover Part II (2011) 15 9PM, TV3 Three friends arrange an alcohol-free stag weekend in Bangkok, but things do not go according to plan. Comedy sequel, with Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis.
The Sessions (2012) 15 12 MIDNIGHT, CH4
PREMIERE Wry comedy drama based on the memoirs of Mark O’Brien, a witty and charming disabled writer who set out to lose his virginity to a sex surrogate (Helen Hunt, above). John Hawkes is excellent as O’Brien in a film that is humorous and heartfelt without being mawkish.
