Here are the 8 best movies on TV this Monday

It's a new week.

It's bloody humid.

Let's just get on with it, shall we?

Here's the best available cinematic options on the box on this Monday, 15 July...

Hail, Caesar! - Film 4 - 6.50pm

The Coen Brothers pen a love letter to the old Hollywood studio system and its movies, bringing in George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and many more to make a song and dance.

Sicario - Film 4 - 9pm

Original, unsettling and just really, really, really brilliant thriller in which Emily Blunt struggles to survive as a deadly drug war escalates.

Worth it for the cinematography and score alone, but everything works here.

The Hitman's Bodyguard - RTÉ 2 - 9pm

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson clown around in a film that is apparently getting a sequel, so watch this one first.

Things we Lost in the Fire - TG4 - 9.30pm

Heavy about addiction, loss and grief starring Halle Berry, Benicio del Toro and David Duchovny.

Katie - RTÉ One - 9.35pm

Excellent documentary from last year about the one, the only Katie Taylor.

Timecop - SyFy - 10pm

Jean-Claude Van Damme, inexplicably rocking some kind of mullet variation in the future, travels back in time to try and help out his younger self, who sports a much more sensible haircut.

The Game - TCM - 11.05pm

Rude and soulless rich man Michael Douglas finds his world turned completely upside down as his birthday is celebrated with a deadly game where lives are on the line.

Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten - Film 4 - 1.15am

If you're having a late one, you could do a great deal worse than this tribute to one of the most influential musicians to have ever lived.
