TELEVISION Filmchoice FILM RATINGS excellent very good good average poor KEY (R)repeat (S)subtitles on text service BBC2 ITV1 Channel 4 Five London Lite Wednesday, 29 July 2009 19 Manhunter ITV2, 12.10am (1986) WHOS the go-to guy when youre after a serial killer? Why, Hannibal the Cannibal, of course. But wait... wheres Anthony Hopkins? This is the first movie incarnation of Hannibal, here played by Brian Cox, above. The remake, Red Dragon, may have cost more, but Michael Manns superior, low-budget version will have delighted the (fava) bean-counters. V For Vendetta BBC3, 9pm (2005) THIS got pretty much a V sign from many film critics, but a 50m Hollywood blockbuster set in futuristic London, scripted by the writers of The Matrix, deserves another chance. Caped crusader Hugo Weaving, above with Natalie Portman, dons a Guy Fawkes mask to bring down the totalitarian government by planting a bomb on the Tube. Their Eyes Were Watching God BBC1, 11.15pm (2005) PRIDE and prejudice in a small Florida town as Halle Berry, above with Michael Ealy, shocks her neighbours with a series of loveless marriages, challenging how a woman (let alone a black woman) should act. This slow-moving period drama, set in the Twenties, is not really one for a lads night in, but fans of the thinking womans chick flick should enjoy it. The Shepherd Five, 9pm (2008) ONE for the fans as Jean-Claude Van Damme sleep-kicks his way through this action drama about corrupt ex-Navy Seals trafficking drugs from Mexico. The climactic one-on-one battle uses rather too much slow motion (or was that just to make things easier for Jean-Claude?) Only released last year, this movie went straight to DVD, which is all the review you should ever need... WENDY SAYERS 10.30 No Place Like Home?
