Here are the 8 best movies on TV this evening

One of the best movies of the decade is on tonight. (No, not Scary Movie, which is also on...)

Sunday evenings are perfect for movies, aren't they?

Whether you're heading to the cinema for one of the new releases (which we reviewed in full right here), or checking out one of the genuinely decent picks of the flicks on the small screen this evening:


Suicide Squad - RTE Two - 9pm

Will Smith and Margot Robbie help to elevate this kinda messy, but kinda-fun-if-you-allow-it-to-wash-over-you-way. A group of villains are hired by the government to stop an even bigger, badder villain from destroying the world. Stuff explodes.

X-Men 2 - E4 - 9pm

In the running for maybe the best superhero movie ever made, as the characters of Xavier's School for the Gifted find themselves on the run from a government agency who wants to put their powers to nefarious use.

Insidious - Horror Channel - 9pm

A family begin to fear that their home is haunted, but when a paranormal specialist comes to visit, they discover that it isn't their home, but their young son who is the source of the haunting.

Spotlight - RTE One - 9.30pm

An all-star cast (Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, John Slattery, Billy Crudup, Richard Jenkins) feature in this true-life story about a group of journalists who uncover the truth of abuse within the church in Boston, and the huge cover-up surrounding it.

Bad Neighbours - Channel 4 - 11pm

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne go to war with a group of frat boys, headed by Zac Efron, when they move in next door, making it impossible to sell their home.

Goodfellas - ITV4 - 11pm

Scorsese. DeNiro. Pesci. Liotta. One of the greatest crime movies ever made.

Scary Movie - Comedy Central - 11.05pm

The original and best of the series, although this came out in the year 2000, so it will be interesting to see if the comedy still holds up. After all, it does contain a scene in which the killer bends like in The Matrix, before floating into the air and doing a Riverdance. So..... comedy?

Double Jeopardy - Film4 - 11.20pm

Ashley Judd is sent to prison for killing her husband, only to discover that he faked his death to get the insurance money. So once she gets out, and finds out that she can't be prosecuted for killing him a second time (which isn't entirely accurate, as it is a different murder, taking place at a different time, in a different place, but sure listen, Hollywood!), she decides to get revenge, with Tommy Lee Jones as the fugitive hunter (he loves hunting fugitives, doesn't he?) trying to stop her.
