Happy Feet 2 (Animation/Drama), Romedy Now, 9 pm
Cast: Robin Williams, Elijah Wood, Pink
Master dancer, Mumble (Wood), gets a shock when he realises that his son Erik is unable to dance like him. In shame, Erik runs away and comes face-to-face with The Mighty Sven, a penguin who can fly. Erik is in awe of Swen, not realising he is a puffin, and doesn’t think his father can match up to his ‘miracles’. But when Emperor Land, the penguins’ home, gets cut off from the rest of the land by large chunks of glaciers, it is up to Mumble to rescue his family and friends. This is the last animated feature film to have the late Robin Williams in its cast.
Exodus: Gods and Kings (Epic/Drama), Star Movies HD, 9 pm
Cast: Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton
The biblical story sees Prince Ramesses II (Edgerton) ascending to the throne of Egypt and becoming the pharaoh, after the death of his father Seti I. His relationship with his brother Moses (Bale) is ruined upon finding that he is, in fact, a Hebrew. Moses is exiled, but he returns to Egypt after a decade, demanding freedom for all the enslaved Hebrews there. The enraged pharaoh orders the execution of Hebrew families until Moses is found and killed. Can Moses save his own kin and prevent further bloodshed? The movie was banned in Egypt owing to alleged distortion of historical facts and improper representation of Jews.
