What will you be watching?
Feeling like you've seen everything Netflix or Prime Video has to offer? Not a problem as JOE has compiled this list of the best movies airing on TV this evening.
Check out your options below.
Mad Max - Turner Classic Movies - 9pm
In a self-destructing world, a vengeful Australian policeman (Mel Gibson) sets out to stop a violent motorcycle gang.
While slightly overshadowed by its bigger and more expansive sequels. the first Mad Max is still incredibly exciting.
Hancock - Film Four - 9pm
Will Smith plays Hancock, a superhero whose ill-considered behavior regularly causes damage in the millions. He changes when the person he saves (Jason Bateman) helps him improve his public image.
Hancock's first half is quite fun before an abrupt tonal shift into less comedic territory. Although flawed, its unique take on the superhero genre makes it worth a look.
Anaconda - Horror Channel - 9pm
A documentary crew in the Amazon Rainforest is taken hostage by an insane hunter (Jon Voight), who forces them along on his quest to capture the world's largest - and deadliest - snake.
Boasting an eclectic cast including Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Owen Wilson, Anaconda is a pretty fun adventure horror.
Crazy, Stupid, Love - RTÉ One - 9.35pm
A middle-aged husband (Steve Carell) has his life changed dramatically when his wife asks for a divorce. He seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a newfound friend (Ryan Gosling).
Also starring Emma Stone, this rom-com was a hit at the box office and with critics.
Face/Off - ITV 4 - 10pm
To foil a terrorist plot, an FBI agent (John Trovolta) undergoes facial transplant surgery to assume the identity of the criminal mastermind (Nicolas Cage) who murdered his only son, but the criminal wakes up prematurely and seeks revenge.
Directed by the great John Woo, this glorious action flick sees two of Hollywood's best if most hammy actors out hamming each other.
The Tourist - Sky One - 10pm
An American tourist (Johnny Depp) visiting Italy to mend a broken heart meets an extraordinary woman (Angelina Jolie) who deliberately crosses his path.
The Tourist is a movie that doesn't really know if it's a thriller or a comedy and winds up sort of being neither. That said, the Venice setting is lovely.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople - Film Four - 10.50pm
In this comedy-drama from MCU favourite Taika Waititi, a national manhunt is ordered for a rebellious kid (Julian Dennison) and his foster uncle (the great Sam Neill) who go missing in the wild New Zealand bush.
A movie that will make you laugh hysterically and slightly tear up, fans of Waititi's other work like Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok will love this.
