You should choo-choo-choose this movie tonight.

Another Wednesday, another weather warning.

If you were planning on heading out tonight, we’d have to encourage you to cancel.

But just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean you can’t have fun.

And there’s nothing better on a cold, wet night than a movie.

Here’s JOE’s top picks for all the films on TV tonight.

The Bourne Supremacy – ITV4 – 9pm

The second entry in a franchise that only got better and better with each edition.

(Apart from the last one – Ed note).

Venom – Film4 – 9pm

Come for Tom Hardy’s accent, stay for the Eminem track at the end.

Flatliners – Great! Movies – 9pm

Like Final Destination, but for millennials.

Get Him To The Greek – Comedy Central – 10pm

Did you know this was a Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off?

Diamond Dogs – Great! Movies Action – 10.50pm

Neither a David Bowie film nor a Metal Gear Solid 5 reference, but a direct-to-DVD action flick starring Dolph Lundgren.

Snowpiercer – Film4 – 11.10pm

Our top pick for tonight is an excellent thriller from Bong Joon Ho, years before he went on to direct the Oscar-winning Parasite.

What’s left of the human population are passengers of Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe.

A class system emerges, and a rebel leader (Chris Evans) seeks to make his way to the front of the train to distribute the wealth among the masses.

A great story, some great acting, and an ending you won’t expect. Well worth a viewing.

Carlito’s Way – ITV4 – 11.15pm

Scarface director Brian De Palma and Al Pacino team up again for another crime thriller.

Deep Blue Sea – Turner Classic Movies – 11.35pm

What if sharks… but smart?

LISTEN: You Must Be Jokin’ with Aideen McQueen – Faith healers, Coolock craic and Gigging as Gaeilge
