Domhnall Gleeson's existential sci-fi nightmare is among the movies on TV tonight
T H U R S D A Y.
It's Thursday, so you know what that means.
Movies. It means movies.
Specifically, movies on TV.
Here's how it looks on Thursday, 27 January...
Transformers: Dark of the Moon – Film4 – 5.55pm
That'll be the third one.
Goldfinger – ITV4 – 8pm
James Bond battles the man with the Midas touch.
Old Boys – Film4 – 9pm
Not to be confused with the superlative Korean vengeance thriller (or its terrible Spike Lee remake), this comedy centres on a love triangle in a 1980s boys' school.
Payback – Turner Classic Movies / TCM – 9pm
Mel Gibson's tough-guy con artist is betrayed and left for dead by his criminal underworld buddies.
Roused and in search of a very specific amount of money, he sets out for, er, payback.
Bad Boys – SyFy – 9pm
Famous science fiction film Bad Boys, there.
Death Wish V: The Face of Death – ITV4 – 10.15pm
They made five of these?
Ex Machina – Film4 – 10.55pm
Our pick for tonight.
Domhnall Gleeson plays a programmer who gets more than he bargained for when he wins a contest to meet his reclusive boss Nathan, played by Oscar Isaac.
Sci-fi drama ensues as Nathan's new project is revealed; a lifelike robot (Alicia Vikander) whose unnerving presence brings about deadly consequences.
Kill Bill: Volume 2 – TCM – 11.05pm
Uma Thurman's bloodied bride concludes her roaring rampage of revenge.
