Movies on TV:

“Goldfinger” on BBC America at 8:00 PM ET

This classic James Bond film from 1964 stars Sean Connery as the suave spy who uncovers a plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve. The third film in the franchise, “Goldfinger” was a huge success when released and featured the memorable theme song of the same name by Dame Shirley Bassey. With a great plot full of action and suspense along with performances by Connery, Gert Fröbe, Honor Blackman, Desmond Llewelyn, Lois Maxwell, Harold Sakata and others, this is great watch tonight.

“Youth in Revolt” on FLIXe at 10:00 PM ET

Michael Cera is sly and funny in this 2009 dramedy/romance about a young man pursuing his dream girl and hoping to lose his virginity. More than just your average teen movie, Cera shines while playing Nick Twisp and his alter ego, French bad-boy Francois. A loner with a dysfunctional family, 16-year-old Nick doesn’t have a chance with Sheeni (Portia Doubleday), but maybe with the help of Francois he does after all. Smart and funny dialogue along with great performances makes this a fun and engaging watch.
