Escape Plan ( 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

(2013) More intelligent than many of its genre peers, this actioner pairing Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger also is too harsh for all but the hardiest viewers. Stallone plays an expert on prison security who poses as an inmate to test each institution he investigates. He gets more than he bargained for, however, when he goes undercover in a privately run maximum-security jail with a cruel warden (Jim Caviezel) who knows his real identity but refuses to treat him as anything other than an ordinary convict. Joining forces with Schwarzenegger's character, the slammer's top dog, he searches for flaws in the system that could help them both fly the coop. Working from a script by Miles Chapman and Arnell Jesko, director Mikael Hafstrom uses the Sherlock Holmes-like observational skills of Stallone’s persona to good effect, and implicitly raises real-life issues about the treatment of captured terrorists and other criminals. But brutality abounds in the movie’s main setting; inmates brawl among themselves, masked guards beat their charges with gusto, and the two main characters stage fights as part of their escape plan. So the basic question remains how much pleasure or edification moviegoers will derive from watching the former governor of California head-butt Rocky. Constant violence, much of it gory, an implied nonmarital situation, a revenge theme, much rough and crude language, a coarse joke, and a couple of obscene gestures. (L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling) (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian) HBO (cable)




Man Of Steel ( 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm )

(2013) Action adventure recounting the life of iconic comic book hero Superman (Henry Cavill). Born on the distant planet Krypton, as an infant his parents (Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer) send him to Earth so that he can escape his doomed home planet’s imminent destruction. His adoptive human parents (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane) instill positive values and try to protect his secret. But, once grown, an investigative reporter (Amy Adams) is on the verge of disclosing his true identity when an old enemy (Michael Shannon) of his father’s arrives from space and threatens humanity with annihilation unless Superman surrenders. Director Zack Snyder’s take on the familiar narrative has the makings of an engaging drama and includes Christian themes and an anti-eugenics message that viewers of faith in particular can appreciate. But this positive potential is squandered in favor of endless scenes of high-powered brawling and the pyrotechnics of innumerable explosions. Much intense but bloodless violence, a fleeting sexual advance, and occasional crude and crass language. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) Cinemax (cable)

Sinsinawa: Quilt Show ( 10:00 am - 5:00 pm )

The Sinsinawa Art Gallery presents "The Love of Quilting Is Our Common Thread," the 24th annual quilt exhibit October 3 through November 30. The show features quilts having a connection to either a Sinsinawa Dominican Sister or a Mound staff person. Each year's exhibit features quilts not previously displayed. Two of the quilts in this show were made by women in the United States who used hand-dyed fabric scraps from a fair trade cooperative in India. The money raised from the sale of the two quilts will go to support the Indian women who belong to the cooperative and their children. The art gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, contact Michelle Till at 608-748-4411, ext. 849, or visit www.sinsinawa.org




Christmas With The Kranks ( 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm )

(2004) Delightful yuletide comedy about a Chicago couple (Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis) who boycott Christmas after their daughter leaves home to join the Peace Corps, sparking unforeseen reactions from their militantly merry neighbors (led by Dan Aykroyd). The film is based on the novella Skipping Christmas by John Grisham. Director Joe Roth delivers a dose of holly-jolly fun that is, by turns, extremely funny and poignantly tender, and its warmhearted message of selflessness, family, and coming together as a community clearly embodies the truest spirit of the season. Some suggestive humor, comic violence and mildly crude language. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children. Lifetime (cable)
