D.O.A. ( 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm )

(1950) Involving thriller in which a vacationing accountant (Edmond O'Brien) discovers he has been given a lethal dose of poison, then backtracks trying to find his killer before he dies. Directed by Rudolph Mate, the premise is simple but effective, with O'Brien's frantic performance as the doomed man adding a sense of urgency to the proceedings. Stylized violence and emotionally intense situations. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)

Catholic University Of America: Mass Of The Holy Spirit ( 11:10 am - 12:30 - pm )

The opening Mass of the academic year for The Catholic University of America. Live broadcast from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. (TV-G -- general audience) EWTN (cable)




Journey To The Center Of The Earth ( 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm )

(1959) Enjoyable adventure from the Jules Verne fantasy set in 1880 Iceland where a Scottish scientist (James Mason), his student assistant (Pat Boone), a Swedish widow (Arlene Dahl), and a local guide (Peter Ronson) descend through a network of caves leading to a vast ocean at the earth’s core from which they return to the surface through an Italian volcano. Director Henry Levin paces the subterranean excitements -- cave-ins, giant reptiles, the lost city of Atlantis, and a sinister interloper (Thayer David) -- with some wry humor, imaginative sets, and plenty of convincing special effects. Lively family entertainment. (A-I -- general patronage) (Not rated) TCM (cable)




Jurassic Park ( 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm )

(1993) A bizarre theme park featuring genetically re-created dinosaurs becomes a potential deathtrap when the carnivorous monsters break loose, endangering some visiting scientists (Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum) and two very frightened young children (Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards). Director Steven Spielberg’s monster fantasy downplays plot and characterization in favor of spectacle and horrific special effects in which the realistic-looking creatures hunt down their human prey. Much intense menace to children and several stylized scenes of violent death. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) AMC (cable)

The Words ( 3:40 pm - 5:15 pm )

(2012) This mostly pleasing rumination on moral choices and how the theft of ideas propels fiction eventually lurches to an ambiguous ending likely to please no one. The three-tiered story centers on a struggling writer (Bradley Cooper) who happens across the manuscript of a novel, which he publishes as his own work, only to face an ethical dilemma when the real author (Jeremy Irons) turns up. Co-writers and directors Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal's talky drama is just the thing for those yearning to don tweed and corduroy, sip red wine, and discuss literature on rainy nights. Two premarital situations and occasional profane and crude language. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) Showtime (cable)




The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug ( 7:00 pm - 9:45 pm )

(2013) Lively sequel in which a once-timid hobbit (Martin Freeman) continues his courageous quest to help a group of dwarves (led by Richard Armitage) recapture their ancestral mountain stronghold from the terrifying dragon (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) who displaced them. As he does so, the wizard (Ian McKellen) who originally chose him for this seemingly unlikely mission works to prevent larger, darker forces from consolidating their power. Director Peter Jackson's second installment in a trilogy of films based on Catholic author J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel is -- like its 2012 predecessor, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey -- too intense for the smallest viewers. But most others will likely appreciate the peppier pace of his return to Tolkien's fictional world of Middle-earth as well as the implicit warnings against the corrupting influence of wealth and power that accompany it. Much vivid but bloodless action violence, some occult undertones, and a brief instance of mildly sexual humor. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) HBO (cable)




Prisoners ( 9:00 pm - 11:35 pm )

(2013) After his six-year-old daughter and a playmate are kidnapped, and the prime suspect (Paul Dano) is released for lack of evidence, a seemingly decent family man (Hugh Jackman) turns vicious vigilante in his desperation to force the mentally challenged loner to reveal the little girls' whereabouts. But the lead detective on the case (Jake Gyllenhaal) doggedly pursues other angles, eventually uncovering a hidden web of satanically evil events and relationships. Though it presents the facade of a thriller, director Denis Villeneuve's powerful drama is primarily a richly symbolic exploration of morality, the human condition and the role of religious faith in a fallen world. Still, its unflinching portrayal of the measures to which Jackman-s character is driven -- together with such seamy details as an incidental priest figure who is both a sex offender and an alcoholic -- make this bleak foray into psychological darkness anything but casual fare. Harrowing violence, including beatings, torture and a gory suicide, mature themes, a negative treatment of Catholic clergy, at least one use of profanity, and constant rough and crude language. (L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling) (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian) Cinemax (cable)




We Shall Not Be Moved: The Catholic Sisters Of New Orleans ( 10:30 pm - 11:30 pm )

(2012) Documentary recounting how the Catholic Sisters of New Orleans, their facilities and the people they serve were devastated by Hurricane Katrina, yet they remained determined to rebuild rather than be driven out of the city by the storm's wrath.

Secrets Of Her Majesty’s Secret Service ( 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm )

A look at MI6, the legendary British spy agency. (TV-PG -- parental guidance suggested) WPT (PBS)




Shane ( 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm )

(1953) Classic Western about a former gunfighter (Alan Ladd) who is befriended by a farm family (Van Heflin, Jean Arthur, and young Brandon De Wilde), then saves them from being run off their land by a rancher's hired gun (Jack Palance). Directed by George Stevens, it's an epic tale of the conflict over land rights pitting the cattlemen’s six-shooters against the homesteaders' moral fortitude and family roots. Stylized frontier violence. (A-II --- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)
