The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch Today -

Cap­tain Fan­tas­tic PRE­MIERE HBO, As­tro Ch 411/ HD Ch 431, 9pm This is a feel good movie that you re­ally shouldn’t pass on. Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen), his wife Leslie and their six chil­dren live deep in the wilder­ness of Wash­ing­ton state. Iso­lated from so­ci­ety, Ben and Leslie de­vote their ex­is­tence to rais­ing their kids – ed­u­cat­ing them to think crit­i­cally, train­ing them to be phys­i­cally fit and ath­letic, guid­ing them in the wild with­out tech­nol­ogy and demon­strat­ing the beauty of co-ex­ist­ing with na­ture. When Leslie dies sud­denly, Ben must take his shel­tered off­spring into the out­side world for the first time. Watch it. Re­ally. Mike And Dave Need Wed­ding Dates PRE­MIERE FOX Movies, As­tro Ch 413/ HD Ch 433, 10pm Be­lieve it or not, the whole plot of the movie is ex­plained in its ti­tle. Mike and Dave Stan­gle are young, ad­ven­tur­ous, fun-lov­ing brothers who tend to get out of con­trol at fam­ily gath­er­ings. When their sis­ter Jeanie re­veals her Hawai­ian wed­ding plans, the rest of the clan in­sists that they both bring re­spectable dates. After plac­ing an ad­ver­tise­ment (for a date) on Craigslist (roll eyes, now!), the sib­lings de­cide to pick Ta­tiana and Alice, two charm­ing and seem­ingly nor­mal women. Once they ar­rive on the is­land, how­ever, Mike and Dave re­alise that their com­pan­ions are ready to get wild and party hard. Tragedy? This movie is for young Zac Efron fans, clearly. Three Colour Fan­tasy: Vivid Ro­mance PRE­MIERE Oh! K HD, As­tro Ch 394, 7.50pm Vivid Ro­mance is the sec­ond se­ries in Three

Colours of Fan­tasy, a nine-episode se­ries made up of three mini-se­ries (the other two be­ing Star Of The Uni­verse and Queen Of The Ring). So In Sung (Yoo Shi Yoon) has been pur­su­ing his dream of be­com­ing a po­lice­man for four years but has never seemed to be able to score at the ex­am­i­na­tions. De­spite that, he still has a pos­i­tive out­look on life. He later ap­plies for a part-time job with a du­bi­ous job de­scrip­tion: “Ex­per­i­ment Full of Life”. What awaits him? Yeah, I’m not a fan of Korean dra­mas but even I want to know.

Satur­day Night Live S42 Com­edy Cen­tral HD, Hyp­pTV Ch 609, 10pm

Episode 21 –So Bay­watch kinda sucked but Dwayne John­son is a funny guy and he’s front and cen­tre in this week’s episode so you may want to tune in. Also on is Katy Perry. Yay. Sniper: Spe­cial Ops PRE­MIERE FOX Ac­tion Movies HD, As­tro Ch 434, 11pm When the mis­sion to res­cue a US Con­gress­man who has been kid­napped by the Tal­iban goes side­ways, Army sniper Jake Chan­dler and his part­ner get left be­hind. Now, on their own, they must sur­vive in en­emy ter­ri­tory and wait for their unit to come back for them. Ac­tion packed, testos­terone-charged movies? Who can re­sist? Cast in­cludes Steven Sea­gal, Rob Van Dam and Tim Abell. Amer­i­can Crime S3 FOX Crime HD, Hyp­pTV Ch 610, 10pm Episode 8 – The fi­nale of this fan­tas­tic sea­son (and se­ries, sob! sob!) of­fers some clo­sure to the tragic lives of some of its char­ac­ters. The scene in which Ki­mara re­alises that Shae was the girl who was stabbed was hard to watch. Watch­ing her prac­ti­cally lose her ide­al­ism and hope for good to come out of bad things is heart­break­ing. But it’s all done so well. So real, it em­pha­sises what a solid show this is. The Per­fect Storm Warn­erTV HD, As­tro Ch 719/Hyp­pTV Ch 613, 9.05pm Based on a true story, the film tells of the coura­geous men and women who risk their lives ev­ery daily, pit­ting their fish­ing boats and res­cue ves­sels against the stormy seas. Their worst fears are re­alised at sea one day when they are con­fronted by three rag­ing weather fronts which un­ex­pect­edly col­lide to pro­duce the great­est, fiercest storm in mod­ern his­tory, cru­elly called “The Per­fect Storm”. It’s in­tense and will set your heart rac­ing. It’s a good movie that stars Ge­orge Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Diane Lane, Wil­liam Ficht­ner, Karen Allen and Bob Gun­ton. Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble TV3, As­tro Ch 103/ Hyp­pTV Ch 103, 12.30am When US govern­ment op­er­a­tive Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his men­tor, Jim Phelps (Jon Voight) go on a covert as­sign­ment that takes a dis­as­trous turn, Jim is killed, and Ethan be­comes the prime sus­pect. Now a fugi­tive, Hunt re­cruits bril­liant hacker Luther Stick­ell (Ving Rhames) and mav­er­ick pi­lot Franz Krieger (Jean Reno) to help him sneak into a heav­ily guarded CIA build­ing to re­trieve a con­fi­den­tial com­puter file that will prove his in­no­cence. If you haven’t watched this, it’s worth stay­ing up for.
