Here are the 6 best movies on TV tonight

A very decent Tuesday night mix, if we're being honest.

It is cold outside.

Don't be outside.

Be inside.

Be inside with a movie.

One of these movies, preferably.


Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events - Film4 - 6.55pm

Before Netflix remade it as a series, this had Jim Carrey firing on all cylinders as an evil family member trying to do three smart kids out of their inheritance. The fact that it co-stars Jude Law, Catherine O'Hara, Emily Browning, Billy Connolly, Jennifer Coolidge, Dustin Hoffman, Timothy Spall, Luis Guzman, and MERYL FRICKIN' STREEP is another reason to watch.

X-Men - E4 - 8pm

The very first one, where Storm had a bad wig and Wolverine was actually kinda skinny. And the plot actually seemed to focus on Rogue, of all people. But still, it was great to see Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen have a proper act-off and Rebecca Romijn is having a ball as the much-more-fun version of Mystique.

The Expendables 2 - Virgin Media One - 9pm

The second one, which was incredibly more violent than the first one and the third one and therefore, much more fun.

Kingsman: The Secret Service - Film4 - 9pm

In which the whole idea of a James Bond/British secret spy agency is turned on its head, but making it super violent (that church scene!), while still having a huge amount of fun with it. Plus, it made the world realise just what an absolute bad-ass Colin Firth could be.

US Marshals - ITV4 - 9pm

A sequel to The Fugitive, if you can believe it, but following Tommy Lee Jones' character, as he chases another most-wanted fugitive (Wesley Snipes) after he escapes from a crashed plane.

The Dark Knight - Sky One - 10pm

"I just did what I do best. I took your little plan, and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets, hmm? You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go according to plan. Even when the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I told the press that, like, a gang-banger would get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics. Because it's all part of the plan. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everybody loses their minds! Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair."
