The best Mission Impossible film is among the movies on TV tonight

That theme is now stuck in your head. You're welcome.

The bank holiday is here, and not a moment too soon.


Whatever your plans are for this evening, you can be rest assured that you can have a lovely long lie-in tomorrow morning.

So whether you're hitting the town, or staying in, there's nothing that will put you in a better mood than a good film.

Here's JOE's top picks for the best movies on the small screen this Bank Holiday Sunday (1 May).

Diamonds Are Forever - RTÉ Two - 6pm


Sean Connery's final outing as 007.

Independence Day - Film4 - 6.10pm

"Keep my Earth's name out of your f***ing mouth!"

Pitch Perfect - ITV2 - 7.50pm


This music comedy hits a few flat notes, but it soars otherwise.

Now You See Me 2 - E4 - 9pm

You'd see better magic at the circus than you would in this illusion-based crime caper.

Pacific Rim - Turner Classic Movies - 9pm


An underrated giant monster film.

Mission Impossible: Fallout - Comedy Central - 9pm

Our top pick for tonight is an action packed spy thriller, which makes it confusing as to why this is on Comedy Central, but we're not complaining.

Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt following a failed mission, where he has to punch, kick, and perform outrageous stunts to prevent a nuclear catastrophe.

Cruise legitimately performed many of the stunts in the film, including one leap to a rooftop which caused a broken ankle.


An absolute spectacle, and a lot of fun. Well worth watching this Bank Holiday weekend.

Also, check out our interview with one of the stars, Henry Cavill, where he told us what he REALLY thought of Tom Cruise and the film...

The Invisible Man - Horror Channel - 9pm

Let me be transparent; this horror is a classic.

Under Siege 2: Dark Territory - ITV4 - 9pm

As the old saying goes; "Out of the submarine hijacked by terrorists, into the train hijacked by terrorists".

Four Weddings and a Funeral - Channel 4 - 11pm

A romantic comedy that doesn't hold back on either the romance nor the comedy.

The Purge: Anarchy - ITV4 - 11.05pm

The second one.

Drive - Great! Movies - 01.50am

Easily one of Ryan Gosling's best films.
