Perhaps the coolest thriller ever made is among the movies on TV tonight


Not quite Friday.


Arguably superior to Wednesday.

Let's see what movies we have lined up for you on Thursday, 4 November...

Star Trek: Generations – Film4 – 6.30pm

In which two classic iterations of the TV show join forces.

Jackie – Film4 – 9pm

Natalie Portman is excellent as Jackie Kennedy in the days following the assassination of her husband; US President John F. Kennedy.

V for Vendetta – Turner Classic Movies / TCM – 9pm


Very watchable sci-fi dystopian thriller in which a masked vigilante with a voracious appetite for vocabulary attempts to bring down a fascist government.

Bullitt – ITV4 – 9pm

Steve McQueen shines in the one of the coolest movies ever made and our main choice for your viewing pleasure this evening.

It also boasts one of the most influential car chases ever captured on film.

Hell, even the poster for this thing rules.


As for the plot; McQueen plays a no-nonsense police lieutenant who goes up against some mob hitmen.

What more do you need?

Bad Times at the El Royale – Film4 – 10.55pm


A film that belongs in the '90s VHS era, which is a compliment.

A cast of interesting characters – played by Jeff Bridges, Dakota Johnson, John Hamm and Cynthia Erivo – hide out in a cheap motel for various shady individual reasons.

En route – Chris Hemsworth's dangerous Manson-esque cult leader.

Black Hawk Down – ITV4 – 11.20pm


Ridley Scott's star-studded war epic often feels like one big battle sequence.

The cast includes – deep breath – Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, Tom Sizemore, Tom Hardy, Orlando Bloom, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Ewan Bremner, Hugh Dancy, Eric Bana, William Fichtner, Jason Isaacs and Sam Shepard.

The Lost Boys – TCM – 11.45pm

Retro vampire action.
