Television review Saturday’s TV movies include the magical animation Kubo and the Samurai Adventure

The films of the day were judged by Martta Kaukonen.

She’s Funny That Way ★★

(USA 2014) A married director (Owen Wilson) has sex with a prostitute (Imogen Poots) – who later participates in the audition of his new play. Peter Bogdanovich’s comedy is reminiscent of Woody Allen’s worst works. (K7)

Nelonen at 1.30 pm

To Walk Invisible ★★★

(USA 2016) Sally Wainwright directed a TV biography of 19th-century Brontë writer siblings (including Charlie Murphy). The trio heard that writing was not suitable for women, so it offered its scripts to publishers under masculine pseudonyms. (K12)

Free at 5:25 p.m.

Looking for Doria ★★★

(USA 2016) In a sequel to Pixar’s animation, Nemo, Dori (voiced by Ona Kamu), who is suffering from memory problems, is looking for her parents. The underwater world of the film is animated with beautiful bright colors. (K7)

Nelonen at 5.30 pm

Kubo and samurai adventure ★★★★

(USA 2016) Little boy Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson) escapes the evil spirits that haunt him. Directed by Travis Knight as his firstborn, the magical animation takes place in feudal Japan. (K7)

TV5 at 7 p.m.

Room ★★★★

(Ireland / Canada / USA 2015) A woman (Brie Larson) lives with her five-year-old son (captivating Jacob Tremblay) in a small room as a sex slave to her kidnapper (Sean Bridgers). Lenny Abrahamson’s drama realistically depicts the slow recovery of mother and child. (K16)

TV5 at 9 p.m.

Hunger Game – Impersonator 1/2 ★★★

(USA 2014) Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) incites rebellion. The third part of the youth film series is directed by Francis Lawrence. Julianne Moore is among the good supporting actors. (K12)

Liv at 9 p.m.

Kingsman – Secret Service ★★

(Britain 2014) An intelligence agent (Colin Firth) trains himself a successor (Taron Egerton). The worldview for the opening of Matthew Vaughn’s action comedy series is stale. (K16)

Sub at 9 p.m.

Juice ★★★

(Finland 2018) Teppo Airaksinen directed the biography of musician Juice Leskinen (1950–2006), who does not flatter his subject, but presents it as vicious and cruel. Riku Nieminen put his physique to the test, first losing weight to the dimensions of young Juice and then gaining weight to the patterns of older Juice. Nieminen brilliantly by interpreting the singer’s songs himself. The film has been filmed – rare yes – for film. (K7)

Nelonen at 9 p.m.

Pompeii ★★

(USA / Canada / Germany 2014) A Celtic ladder (Kit Harington) incubates revenge in the last days of Pompeii. Paul WS Anderson’s spectacle delights with special effects. (K16)

Hero at 9:30 p.m.

Rock’n’Roll High School ★★

(USA 1979) High school students who like rock music put in combs for a new strict principal (Mary Woronov). Directed by Allan Arkush and Roger Corman produced a teen comedy punched around the Ramones punk rock band. The film is sympathetically childish.
