02:30 The Godfather II

Prod Year 1974 - Al Pacino and Robert De Niro take centre stage in the second movie of Francis Ford Coppola's trilogy about the Corleone mafia family. The first time a sequel ever won an Oscar, this looks at the origins of Don Corleone (De Niro plays the young Brando of the original). Violent and serene by turns, it's moviemaking at its most satisfying.

06:00 Bring It On: All Or Nothing

Prod Year 2006 - Hayden Panettiere - the indestructible cheerleader of TV smash Heroes - gets in some practice in the second sequel to teen hit Bring It On. She is Britney, living the pompom-waver's dream at the elite seaside campus of Pacific Vista High School, where she is captain of the cheerleading squad and dating the star quarterback.

09:00 Gandhi

Prod Year 1982 - Ben Kingsley delivers a career-defining, Oscar-winning performance in the title role of the epic biopic of the Indian leader, Mahatma Gandhi. After being evicted from the first-class compartment of a train for no reason other than his race, the young lawyer embarks on a non-violent resistance movement for the rights of Indians. His successful campaign to end British colonial rule makes him a hero, but his greatest test comes from unrest during the partition of India. Kingsley's Best Actor gong was one of the film's eight Oscar triumphs, including Best Picture.

12:30 Gulliver's Travels

Prod Year 2010 - Starring Jack Black, the 2010 incarnation of Jonathan Swift's iconic literary satire drops the majority of the parody and original plot for a post-modern family-friendly take on the tale. Black plays the oversized travel writer who finds himself in Lilliput, the land of tiny people but bigger prejudices. Emily Blunt plays the princess while there's sterling British support from James Corden and Billy Connolly and Catherine Tate as Lilliputian royalty.

Prod Year 2011 - When Gwyneth Paltrow’s globe-trotting executive returns from a business trip to Hong Kong little does she suspect that she’s carrying a virus which will result in millions of deaths. Director Steven Soderbergh meticulously constructs a doomsday scenario, soberly describing how an apparently innocuous bacteriological strain transmutes into a lethal contagion. Kate Winslet plays a valiant researcher who risks her life dealing with the contaminated while Jude Law is the conspiracy theorist blogger who fans the flames of hysteria. Deeply disturbing in its clinical approach, this is one to catch.

21:00 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Prod Year 2011 - Still struggling with his fiery demons, Cage's biker-from-Hell Johnny Blaze is hiding out in a remote corner of Eastern Europe. He's approached by a secret church sect and asked to save a boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first he is reluctant to use his power, but it's the only way to save the youngster and possibly rid himself of this curse forever. Hooking up with the rebel monk leader Idris Elba, they prepare to get their fingers burnt. Prepare for fireworks as the team behind Crank revs up the franchise.

23:00 The Fighter

Prod Year 2010 - The gloves are off for Mark Wahlberg as Micky Ward, the real-life welterweight from Massachusetts whose career was troubled not by lack of guts or talent, but by the in-fighting in his own corner. Trained by his crack-addicted brother – former champ Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale) – and managed by his domineering mother (Melissa Leo), Micky is going nowhere... until his ballsy new girlfriend (Amy Adams) urges him to break the family ties. A labour of love for producer-star Wahlberg, this hard-fought biopic shows plenty of crowd-pleasing class with its combination of sharp directorial jabs and eye-catching performances - particularly from Bale and Leo who won Best Supporting Oscars.

01:00 Guess Who

Prod Year 2005 - Barbershop 2 director Kevin Rodney Sullivan turns out a surprisingly enjoyable remake of the 1967 comedy classic Guess Who's Coming To Dinner. While Ashton Kutcher is no Sidney Poitier, the movie neatly reverses the black/white dynamic of the original and is welcomely free from any politically correct manipulation. Not quite what you might expect and all the better for it.

After going through phases of confusion, frustration, desperation and resignation, Phil eventually uses the time to win over his smart and sexy producer Rita (Andie MacDowell)... not the easiest task in only 24 hours.
