Here are the 7 best movies on TV this evening
(looks out window) "Gross. Best sit in with a movie."
Last weekend is a memory. This weekend is still on the horizon.
What to do on a Wednesday?
WEDNESDAY 21 AUGUST
The Simpsons Movie - FilmFour - 4.50pm
If you get home early, then you could check out the better-than-most-of-the-later-seasons movie, which unwisely took the family out of Springfield, but still managed to be very, very funny.
Mrs. Doubtfire - FilmFour - 6.35pm
Remember when he tried to kill Pierce Brosnan with pepper? Haha, family comedies.
The Waterboy - Comedy Central - 9pm
Listen, you either like Adam Sandler, and you'll be excited to hear this movie is on, or you hate him, in which case you'll probably throw your TV out for fear that you might turn this on by accident. There is no in-between with Adam Sandler.
War - TCM - 9pm
There probably is a plot for this movie, but really we're here to see Jason Statham and Jet Li kick people, and sometimes each other, in the face for 90 minutes. We are a simple folk who enjoy simple pleasures.
Suite Francaise - RTÉ One - 9.35pm
Michelle Williams plays a French villager who begins to fall in love with a German soldier during the early days of the Nazi occupation of France in WWII. Co-stars Margot Robbie, Sam Riley, and Ruth Wilson help sell the high-tension romance.
The Fountain - Syfy - 10pm
A time-travelling sci-fi romance, telling the love story between Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz across thousands of years, as they play different variations of themselves, and each version was always supposed to fall in love with each other. A thought-provoking epic with one of the best soundtracks of all time.
True Grit - FilmFour - 10.50pm
Nominated for 10 Oscars and packed with an all-star cast, the Coen Brothers remake of a classic Western is most definitely worth a (re)watch.
