A beautiful romantic comedy is among the movies on TV tonight

"I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life."

Well cowboys, cowgirls, and cowpeople, that's it.


Garth Fever has come to an end across the country, and the Stetsons are being packed away for another day.

If you were one of the lucky 80,000 that were in attendance at the show last night, you're probably settling in for a night in before reality comes back on Monday.

Even if you weren't partaking in Garthmania, you might just want to relax for the evening.

And there really is no better way to relax than with a good film.


Here's JOE's top picks for the best movies on the small screen this Sunday (18 September).

Rampage - ITV2 - 6.55pm

Three abominations of nature and humanity are unleashed on the world, and only Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can stop them.

Independents' Day - Horror Channel - 7pm


You have to admire the guts of these filmmakers.

Failure to Launch - E4 - 7.05pm

Failure to land, more like.

About Time - RTÉ2 - 9.35pm


Our top pick for tonight is essential viewing for anyone who loves a bit of love.

Ireland's own Domhnall Gleeson stars as a young man who uses his new found power of time travel to improve his love life.

What follows is an emotional rollercoaster, brought to us by Richard Curtis, the mind behind Love, Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Fantastic performances, with laugh-out-loud moments coupled with utter heartbreak. Well worth a watch.


The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - Channel 4 - 11pm

The second one, or the fifth one, depending on who you ask. The best part about the film, however, is the insane footage of Benedict Cumberbatch pretending to be a dragon.

Allied - Film4 - 11.20pm

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard star in this World War II romantic drama.
