Here are the 5 best movies on TV this evening
A cold Tuesday evening? Yeah, that sounds movies from the couch to us...
Yep, it is still January.
Yep, it is still really cold out.
Yep, it is somehow only Tuesday.
So your reasonable options tonight are either check out a movie on the big screen (our reviews of all the new releases can be found right here), or check out a movie on the small screen:
TUESDAY 21 JANUARY
Mechanic: Resurrection - FilmFour - 9pm
Jason Statham is a retired hitman who is forced to un-retire and make a number of assassinations look like accidents or a very bad man is going to kill his girlfriend (Jessica Alba). But the plot doesn't really matter. We're all here to see Statham kick people in the face.
Curse Of Chucky - Horror Channel - 9pm
The sixth entry into the Child's Play series sees the movies return to out-and-out horror after two vaguely comedic outings, and it is all the better for it. Arguably the very best in the series, provided you've got a hankering for demonically possessed dolls.
A Perfect Murder - TCM - 9pm
Michael Douglas is the super-rich businessman who finds out that his wife Gwyenth Paltrow has been cheating on him with Viggo Mortensen. So he pays Mortensen A LOT to actually murder his wife, but things don't go according to plan. A pretty-decent remake of Hitchcock's sorta-classic Dial M For Murder.
Me, Myself & Irene - Comedy Central - 10pm
Jim Carrey plays a state trooper with split personality disorder, and he has been assigned to protect and escort Renée Zellweger to New York. However, when he forgets to take his meds, all hell breaks loose. It was Carrey reuniting with his Dumb & Dumber directors and it is funnier than it has been given credit for.
Boyhood - FilmFour - 12.45am
12 years in the making, director Richard Linklater tells the fictional story of a young boy who grows up into a young man, and how he and the world around him changes during that time. 100% deserved to win the Best Picture Oscar that year over Birdman, and it remains one of the very few movies to have a perfect 100 score on Metacritic.
