Here are the 8 best movies on TV this evening
A few classics on the box tonight.
Look, a lot of us are back in work, it's really bad, we all feel bad, let's not talk about it. Let's talk about movies instead. There are plenty of decent ones on the box tonight and that should help ease the pain of existing in a world where your labour is exploited by capitalistic structures geared only towards grinding out profit for people wealthier than you. You could also probably get a takeaway.
Anyway, here you go:
The Sound of Music - BBC Four - 7pm
DO, A DEER, A FEMALE DEER—Bangers, Julie Andrews, fighting the Nazis, this movie actually has pretty much everything.
Bend It Like Beckham - E4 - 7.30pm
Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightley star in a comedy about one young girl's love of football. A very nice throwback to the early 2000s.
The Rock - Sky - 9pm
Time to head back to Alcatraz. A cult classic that we've raved about on more than one occasion,We've got too much love for Micheal Bay's blockbuster.
The Hangover Part II - ITV2 - 9pm
The second instalment of Todd Phillips' drinking-buddy chaos comedies. A career-defining role from Zach Galifianikis. Not as good as the first one but still has its moments.
Daddy's Home - RTÉ Two - 9.40pm
It's no Other Guys, but Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have good chemistry on screen. Good watching if you're up for a few easy laughs but realistically will probably make you want to watch a better Will Ferrell and/or Mark Wahlberg movie.
Brooklyn - RTÉ One - 9.45pm
The ultimate Irish immigrant flick based on Colm Tóibín's novel. Saoirse Ronan turns in another star performance as a young Irish woman in New York torn between two worlds.
Anger Management - Comedy Central - 11.05pm
Adam Sandler is somehow now an acclaimed serious actor as a result of Meyerowitz Story and Uncut Gems, but before all that he'd done almost two decades of absolute garbage comedy films. This was probably the last decent one he was in, alongside Jack Nicholson.
Phone Booth - TG4 - 11.15pm
Colin Farrell ends up in big trouble after stepping into a phone booth. That's it, that's the film.
