Here are the 6 best movies on TV this evening
Not a bad selection for a Tuesday at all.
We know that plenty of you would rather be spending summer evenings doing activities out of doors, but the weather hasn’t exactly facilitated that lately.
It’s not looking very pleasant outside again this evening, so if you are confined to the couch, we’ve picked a far from spectacular, but pretty decent selection of movies for you to enjoy.
Life of Pi – Film4, 6.35pm
Won four out of the 11 Oscars it was nominated for in 2012, an adventure movie that will offer a much-needed dose of escapism of a dreary Tuesday evening.
The Dukes of Hazzard – Comedy Central, 8pm
Named by acclaimed movie critic Roger Ebert as the second-worst movie of 2005. Hey, at least it wasn’t the worst, right?
To save you Googling, that undesirable honour went to Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.
Deadpool – Film4, 9pm
From a movie universally panned to one universally acclaimed. Ryan Reynolds is perfectly cast as the cheeky but loveable anti-hero in this 2016 X-Men spinoff.
Kill Bill: Volume 1 – SyFy, 10pm
Seems to be on the box every second night these days, which is no bad thing. You could argue all day where it ranks on the list of Tarantino’s best flicks, but it certainly warrants inclusion near the top.
Coogan’s Bluff – ITV4, 10pm
Sounds like a spoof movie starring contemporary comedian Steve Coogan, but it is, in fact, a classic western from 1968, the first of many brilliant collaborations between director Don Siegel and star Clint Eastwood.
Buried – Film4, 11.10pm
Another Ryan Reynolds effort to round off the night, probably a little less heralded than Deadpool, but worthy of a similar level of acclaim.
There are precious little laughs this time around as Reynolds is captured in Iraq and confined to a coffin-like box with only a lighter and a mobile phone for company.
Not one for the claustrophobes, but certainly worth a watch.
