An underrated John Cena comedy is among the movies on TV tonight

We hope your parents never tried anything like this.

Well, that's the first week of August done and dusted.


We've only got a few more months of sweet summer, before we're all back at the daily grind with no sun in sight.

So make sure you enjoy the outdoors as much as you can, as it's going to start getting darker sooner.

And once you've had a full day of fun and excitement, there's only one perfect way to top it all off.

Here's JOE's top picks for the best movies on your TV screen this Sunday (7 August).


Ghostbusters - E4 - 6.20pm

The 2016 version, not the original, unfortunately.

Rocky II - ITV4 - 9pm

An excellent sequel, and where many people started to learn how Roman numerals worked.


Blockers - E4 - 9pm

Our top pick for tonight is an underrated modern comedy with a brilliant ensemble cast.

Three daughters aim to lose their virginity on prom night, but their parents have different ideas...

John Cena, post-WWE but pre-Peacemaker, pulls out a hilarious performance, with a supporting cast of indie comedy darlings as well. Well worth a viewing.


Skyfall - RTÉ One - 9.30pm

Daniel Craig's third outing as Bond, serving as a love letter to fans after releasing 50 years after the first film.

Star Trek Beyond - Channel 4 - 10pm

Idris Elba joins the STCU in it's third (or thirteenth?) installment.

South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut - Comedy Central - 10pm


Matt and Trey show off their musical writing skills in this big budget version of the long running cartoon.

Central Intelligence - UTV - 10.20pm

The film that finally answered the question, "What would Dwayne Johnson look like if his face was CGI'd over an overweight teenager"?

Midnight Special - BBC One - 11.35pm

It sounds like a small-town takeaway, but it's actually a fairly decent sci-fi adventure.

The Purge: Anarchy - ITV4 - 12.35am

The second, and arguably the best, film in the series.
