It’s the weekend!
Yes! It is!
If you’re staying in on this Friday (17 September), you could watch The Late Late Show – check out the line-up for tonight’s episode right here – or you could watch movies.
Here’s how it looks this evening…
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – Film4 – 6.45pm
A very silly yet strangely watchable action caper.
Night School – Film4 – 9pm
Kevin Hart stars in a “broad comedy”, it says here.
Red – E4 – 9pm
Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich do their bit for the older generation by ruthlessly assassinating people.
Run All Night – TCM – 9pm
Our pick for this evening sees Liam Neeson, er, run all night in a bid to protect his son Joel Kinnaman from Ed Harris-shaped mob vengeance.
As latter-day Neeson action vehicles go, this one is decent enough, thanks largely in part to Common basically playing a Terminator.
The Specialist – RTÉ 2 – 9.50pm
Sylvester Stallone blows things up real good.
Law Abiding Citizen – Virgin Media One – 10pm
We recently applied complex science-based techniques to determine Gerard Butler’s most fun movie.
Law Abiding Citizen came last. Still worth a watch if you like your movies ridiculous and gross.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War – Channel 4 – 11.05pm
Prequel and sequel to the beloved, staggeringly essential Huntsman franchise.
Brawl in Cell Block 99 – Film4 – 11.15pm
Does exactly what it says on the tin, this one!
Song For a Raggy Boy – RTÉ One – 11.35pm
Aidan Quinn and Iain Glen clash in a Catholic reform school in the late 1930s.
