The perfect ending to a film is among the movies on TV tonight

Don't you forget about me.

Another day, another collection of movies on the telly.


Tonight's selection, however, is just a bit more poignant on a personal level, but we'll dig into that later.

As you ponder that little tease of something more, here's the movies to check out on the small screen this Thursday (16 November).

Star Trek Into Darkness - Film4 - 6.25pm

Benedict Cumberbatch is suitably creepy as Khan in the JJ Abrams reboot of the iconic sci-fi series.


Planet of the Apes - BBC4 - 8pm

I haaaate every ape I see, from Chimpman-A to Chimpanzee...

Cabin Fever - Sky Sci-Fi - 9pm


A horrific flesh-eating virus tears a group of friends apart, turning them against each other in brutal, gory fashion. Hilarity ensues.

The Big Man - Film4 - 9pm

Liam Neeson, Billy Connolly, and a young Hugh Grant appear in this film about... bare-knuckle boxing?

Thief of Time - Virgin Media Four - 9pm


An appropriate title, as you'll be wanting that time back after watching this thriller.

The Breakfast Club - Comedy Central - 9pm

Our top pick for the movies on TV is the quintessential 80s film, with an ending that's especially poignant for this writer.

After two years of writing, filming, and being an all-out nuisance in the office, my time at JOE has come to an end. There have been highs, there have been lows, but it's been such a privilege to work with such a dedicated staff, both past and present.

That's why watching tonight's pick will be an emotional one for me; a ragtag group of strangers brought together, and leaving with friendships that will last a lifetime. Not forgetting, of course, that iconic end credits song.


A Fistful of Dollars - ITV4 - 10.15pm

Clint Eastwood stars as the man with no name. Perfect for anyone who needs their fix of stoic Americans in the desert.

All The Presidents Men - BBC4 - 10.30pm

A modern, gritty retelling of the tale of Humpty Dumpty.

Unsane - Channel 4 - 2.5oam

An excellent horror for the night owls. Fun fact; the entire movie was shot on iPhone.
