But while some would take this opportunity to gear up for a big night on the town, weather dictates that some of us will be curled up in front of the fire as the rain batters down.

But, alas, all is not lost; you can still have a thrilling night in, without leaving the comfort of your sofa.

How, I hear you ask? With a viewing of this week's edition of the Late Late Show?

Well, that depends on what your tolerance for excitement is. We were thinking you could just stay in and watch a movie.

Here's JOE's top picks for the best films on the small screen this Friday (21 October).

Casino Royale - ITV4 - 8pm

Our top pick is, for this writer's money, the best Bond film ever made.

From the word go, Daniel Craig's Bond takes us into a world of mystery and mayhem, with brutal violence and high-tech gadgetry galore, along with some legitimately record-breaking stunts.

You can appreciate the classics, sure; but Casino Royale is still an edge-of-your-seat rollercoaster. A must watch.

Dirty Dancing - Virgin Media One - 9pm

If you're into naughty choreography and looking at Patrick Swayze, then this film could just give you the time of your life.

Marlon Brando would do ANYTHING for his horse in this classic western.

The English Patient - RTÉ One - 11.30pm

War, romance, and NINE Academy Awards have made this Ralph Fiennes epic a timeless classic.

Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl - Channel 4 - 2.45am

A crying shame that this heartbreakingly funny film is being screened so late. One to record, or to watch when you come home from a night out.
