Chisum ( 10:00 am - 12:30 - pm )

(1970) Boisterous, good old-fashioned Western stars John Wayne as cattle baron John Chisum, who figured prominently in the bloody Lincoln County cattle wars involving the likes of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. Directed by Andrew V. McLaglen with the usual oversimplification of moral issues in the taming of the West, the movie will appeal to those who like action at the expense of historical accuracy. (A-I -- general patronage) (G -- general audiences. All ages admitted) AMC (cable)

Despicable Me ( 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

(2010) This enchanting 3D animated comedy about a slightly wicked but ultimately softhearted rogue (voice of Steve Carell) follows his rivalry with a nerdy newcomer (voice of Jason Segel) for the title of world's most terrible villain -- during which they compete to steal the moon, no less -- and charts the life-altering effect a trio of orphans (voices of Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, and Elsie Fisher) have on him after he takes them under his wing, initially for his own nefarious purposes. Co-directors Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin -- who also provide voice work for the main miscreant’s army of comically mumbling undersized minions -- serve up a delightfully humorous conversion tale spun around themes of loyalty and the transformative power of family love with only a few effects that might scare the most timid and a touch of mild bathroom humor to raise concern among some parents. (A-I -- general patronage) (PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children) WKOW (ABC)




Pope John Paul II Canonization Celebration And Vigil ( 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm )

Live from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez leads an evening vigil of song, praise, and worship in honor of Blessed John Paul II's canonization. (TV-G -- general audience) EWTN (cable)




The Incredible Burt Wonderstone ( 9:00 pm - 10:45 pm )

(2013) By turns charming and repellent, this comedy charts the rise and fall of a pair of superstar magicians (Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi) on the Las Vegas Strip. Competition arises from an outrageous street performer (Jim Carrey), who steals away the superstars’ assistant (Olivia Wilde) and threatens their Sin City supremacy. As directed by Don Scardino, the film seeks its laughs the conventional Hollywood way, via sexual innuendo or nauseating sight gags. Such sleaze -- together with a morally flawed conclusion -- obscures interesting commentaries on the wickedness of narcissism and a fallen idol’s potential path to redemption. A benign view of drug use and contraception, much crude humor, sexual innuendo, and occasional profane and rough language. (L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) Cinemax (cable)

Royal Wedding ( 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm )

(1951) Genial musical in which a brother-sister song-and-dance duo (Fred Astaire and Jane Powell) take their show to London on the eve of Queen Elizabeth II's wedding, then get caught up in the spirit of the occasion and find mates of their own in a dancer (Sarah Churchill) and an aristocrat (Peter Lawford). Directed by Stanley Donen, the lightweight plot is helped by some pleasant songs and agreeable dance numbers, but what’s most memorable is the eye-popping sequence in which Astaire dances on the walls and ceiling of his hotel room. Romantic complications. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)

The Last Samurai ( 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm )

(2003) An embittered Civil War veteran (Tom Cruise), retained by the emperor of Japan to train a newly formed conscript army in the ways of modern warfare, finds himself torn between duty and honor when he befriends the man he has been hired to destroy, a Samurai general (Ken Watanabe) who is leading a band of renegade warriors against the imperial forces in an attempt to preserve their fading traditions and halt the encroachment of Westernization into the country. Lavishly shot with painstaking attention to historical detail, director Edward Zwick's epic 19th-century costume drama is, at its center, an intimate tale of one man’s search to reclaim his soul; unfortunately, despite lofty platitudes about honor, the film's romanticized portrayal of the samurai’s militaristic lifestyle results in an at times exalted view of war. Strong battlefield violence. (A-III -- adults) (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian) AMC (cable)




Man Hunt ( 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm )

(1941) Dandy adaptation of Geoffrey Householder's cat-and-mouse suspense story, Rogue Male, pits an English sportsman (Walter Pidgeon) against a fanatical Nazi (George Sanders) as a "stalking hunt" of Hitler turns into the real thing. Director Fritz Lang packs a lot of anti-Nazi fervor in a fast-paced narrative featuring Joan Bennett as a cockney waif, John Carradine as a relentless villain, and Roddy McDowall as a brave little cabin boy. Much menace and stylized violence. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)
