A powerful Irish true story is among the movies on TV tonight

The film was nominated for four Oscars in 2014.

And with that, the weekend is already nearly over.


Whether you were gorging yourself at the Taste of Dublin, or cheering on in the stands with Bill Murray in Tipperary, we hope you had a great one.

And what better way to wind down after such a busy few days than with a great film?

Here's our top picks for the movies on the small screen this Sunday (19 June).

The Man With The Golden Gun - ITV2 - 5pm


Roger Moore takes on Christopher Lee in this classic Bond flick.

Crocodile Dundee II - RTÉ2 - 5.55pm

The second one.

Porridge - BBC Two - 6.30pm


The film adaptation of the sitcom of the same name.

Battle Star Wars - SyFy - 7pm

The evil "Coalition" destroy a "Rebel" planet. Not to be confused with Battlestar or Star Wars.

Green Book - RTÉ One - 9.30pm


The film drew controversy for winning Best Picture at the Oscars, but it's not too bad by any means.

The Inbetweeners 2 - E4 - 9pm

The lads take Australia.

Tremors - Comedy Central - 9pm

A shaky premise, but a great time to be had.


Jaws: The Revenge - ITV4 - 10.05pm

No bite in this sequel, but the thought of a shark having a vendetta against a whole family is hilarious.

Philomena - BBC One - 10.30pm

Our top pick for tonight is a powerful true story, and a distinctly Irish one at that.

A journalist (Steve Coogan, in a much more serious role than that of Alan Partridge) helps Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) search for her son that was given up for adoption without her consent 50 years prior.

Tragic, but full of sweet moments where you can't help but laugh. Well worth a watch.

Moon - BBC Two - 11.45pm

One of the best sci-fi films of the 2000's, with a powerhouse performance from Sam Rockwell.
