Here are the 12 best movies on TV this Sunday

S U N D A Y.

It certainly is.

A good day for movies and doing very little, generally.

With that in mind, let's run the rule over the list of films on the box today - Sunday 17 February.

Romancing the Stone - Film 4 - 4.40pm

Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner adventure it up.

The Simpsons Movie - Channel 4 - 4.50pm

We're long past the golden era here, but The Simpsons Movie is shockingly decent.

Bonus points for harnessing the best elements of Homer's emotional side. That bit with the wedding video? Still not over it.

Flight of the Navigator - SyFy - 6pm

80s VHS sci-fi staple.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - ITV2 - 6.20pm

Shiny remix of A New Hope.

The Jewel of the Nile - Film 4 - 6.50pm

Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner adventure it up. Again.

Last Action Hero - TCM - 9pm

Arnie goes all meta in this uneven but still enjoyable action comedy.

Die Hard 2 - Film 4 - 9pm

More airport hassle than that whole drone business in Heathrow.

Die Hard 4.0 - Virgin Media One - 9pm

Yep, it's the one where John McClane officially becomes superhuman and it's nowhere near as bloody as you'll want it to be, but Die Hard 4.0 deserves more love than it gets.

Strong action sequences, good pacing, a fun relationship between McClane and his young chargeand Bruce Willis not yet in full sleepwalking mode. We'll take it.

Kill Bill: Volume 2 - SyFy - 10pm

The slow-burn conclusion of Uma Thurman's roaring rampage of revenge.

Blades of Glory - BBC One - 11.15pm

Will Ferrell and yer man off Napoleon Dynamite

Bullitt - ITV4 - 11.45pm

Steve McQueen races around.

End of Watch - Channel 4 - 1.10am

The rarest of gems; a good David Ayer movie.

End of Watch still has issues, both in terms of its director's continued obsession with violent stereotypes and the general escalating ridiculousness of the narrative here, but this is sharp, dynamic filmmaking bolstered by the double act of Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña.
