Here, JOE has selected tonight's best options.

Die Hard 2 - ITV 4 - 9pm

On Christmas Eve 1990, two years after the Nakatomi Tower Incident, former NYC police officer John McClane (Bruce Willis) attempts to avert disaster as rogue military operatives seize control of an airport.

While maybe not quite as strong as the original, Die Hard 2 is a worthy, action-packed sequel.

Days of the Bagnold Summer - Film Four - 9pm

This comedy-drama follows a teenager (Earl Cave, son of Nick) spending his summer listening to heavy metal music and trying to get along with his librarian mom (Monica Dolan).

Critically acclaimed upon release in 2019, the movie is notable for being directed by The Inbetweeners star Simon Bird.

Ghost Ship - Turner Classic Movies - 9pm

A salvage crew discovers a long-lost 1962 passenger ship floating lifeless in a remote region of the Bering Sea, and soon notices that its long-dead inhabitants may still be on board.

While not well-received by critics, this 2002 horror movie does boast an iconic opening scene and Irish actor Gabriel Byrne.

Ingrid Goes West - MTV - 9pm

An unhinged social media stalker (Aubrey Plaza) moves to LA and ingratiates herself into the life of an Instagram star (WandaVision's Elizabeth Olson).

This timely black comedy/drama is proof Plaza is a star and deserves to play more lead characters.

My Stepmother is an Alien - True Movies - 9pm

Kim Basinger stars in this 80's comedy as an extraterrestrial woman sent on a secret mission to Earth.

This is after her home planet's gravity is mistakenly disrupted by a widowed scientist (Dan Aykroyd) raising his daughter (Alyson Hannigan, How I Met Your Mother).
