Here are the 7 best movies on TV today

Because not everybody likes the sun.

Yep, it sure is nice out.

But that isn't for everyone. Maybe you just want to sit in a dark room and watch a good movie?

In which case, we recommend you head here, because we've reviewed all of the new cinema releases, including Greta, Hellboy, and Dragged Across Concrete.

However, if you're insisting on staying at home, then these are the best movies on the telly today:


Men In Black - FilmFour - 6.10pm

The original and best (which will have the new Chris Hemsworth/Tessa Thompson to deal with later this summer), which finds NYPD officer Will Smith drafted into the MIB by surly agent Tommy Lee Jones. Their incredible chemistry and some properly funny, big sci-fi ideas, plus that properly creepy bad guy, all mix together for a fantastically entertaining movie.

Finding Dory - RTE One - 6.30pm

One of Pixar's best, involving a dad teaming up with a forgetful fish in order to find his son.

The Shallows - Channel 4 - 8.00pm

Blake Lively is having a lovely day of surfing at an isolated beach, when a shark arrives and attempts to eat her. Just about making it to safety, but too far from the beach to safely swim back, she finds herself alone, bleeding, and being circled by a now-hungrier-than-ever shark. A fun, brief thriller.

Star Trek Into Darkness - FilmFour - 8.00pm

The sequel is, as the title suggests, a lot darker. It kicks off with Benedict Cumberbatch causing a suicide bombing at Star Trek HQ, and goes on to involve some seriously dark space government cover-ups. Sure, the plot is a bit all over the place, but the action sequences are still pretty fantastic.

Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby - Dave - 8.00pm

"If you're not first, you're last."

12 Years A Slave - RTE Two - 9.10pm

The three-time Oscar winning slavery drama epic features one of the best casts of recent years - Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Paul Giamatti, Lupita Nyong'o, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sarah Paulson, Scoot McNairy - and while it isn't an easy watch, it is an important watch.

Bone Tomahawk - FilmFour - 10.35pm

We go in deep on this movie here, but in brief: if you haven't watched it, watch it tonight. It is INCREDIBLE.
