Here are the 7 best movies on TV this Friday evening
It's Friday, for what it's worth.
Obviously the concept of days has become a bit of a joke as our perception of time starts to align with those melted clocks on Salvador Dalí paintings.
But don't mind me, you're not here for an existential crisis. You're here to find out what movies are on TV.
Here are seven of the best:
The Sweeney - SyFy - 9pm
Remake of the 1970s series about the Flying Squad cops in London, starring who else but Ray Winstone in the title role. Cockney goodness abounds.
Shaun of the Dead - ITV2 - 9pm
The first film in Richard Wright's Cornetto trilogy, and arguably the funniest. Certainly the most appropriate for the apocalyptic times we live in. If only we could go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over.
Welcome to the Jungle - Comedy Central - 9pm
A comedy starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson when he was first breaking into the movie business, before he became the total Hollywood megastar he is today. If you want to get a vibe for the era of this film: his co-star is Seann William Scott.
Rocky V - ITV4 - 9pm
Not the most heralded of the Rocky movies. In fact, you might even say it's the least heralded of the Rocky films. This one is mostly just for people who can't get enough of the Rocky films.
Denial - RTE2 - 9.45pm
Fraught legal drama film about the true story of a historian who sued publisher Penguin over claims he was a Holocaust denier, forcing the legal team to prove in a court of law that the Holocaust did take place. Stars Timothy Spall and Rachel Weisz.
Napoleon Dynamite - 11.40pm - Comedy Central Extra
Perfected the genre of awkward comedy. If you've never seen it then you're missing out on a cultural milestone.
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa - 12.15am - BBC One NI
A strange turn of events sees everyone's favourite local DJ thrust into a situation where he's negotiating with a former colleague who has taken hostages at the radio station. Not everyone's favourite, but it's still Partridge.
