Here are the 9 best movies on TV this Tuesday

Tuesday.

The second day of the traditional week.

Things don't feel terribly traditional lately but we can always look to a movie or two for a necessary distraction.

Here are the most intriguing cinematic options on your television on Tuesday 24 March...

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events - Film 4 - 6.55pm

Jim Carrey chews the scenery in this dark gothic family comedy.

Ride Along 2 - E4 - 8pm

The second one.

Alien Covenant - Film 4 - 9pm

The bit where the xenomorph smashes its head off a windscreen as if it were a lairy football hooligan? Great job, Ridley.

Ransom - ITV4 - 9pm

Mel Gibson turns the tables on evil kidnappers. Good film, if you can accept Mel Gibson as a noble hero these days.

The Enforcer - TCM - 9pm

Dirty Harry adventure (the third one) in which Clint Eastwood's trigger-happy lawman is forced to team up with a woman. A woman! Can you believe it? He certainly can't.

US Marshals - TCM - 11.05pm

The Fugitive is a great movie. The sequel? Not so much, but look, there's not much on tonight and maybe you need the dulcet tones of Tommy Lee Jones.

Die Hard 2 - Film 4 - 11.20pm

John McClane goes to an airport. It doesn't go well.

Enter the Dragon - ITV4 - 11.25pm

Vintage martial arts adventure with the legendary Bruce Lee.

The Paperboy - Channel 4 - 1.35am

Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey head up a seriously tacky adult thriller about lust and murder and such.

One of those notably terrible films in which every actor makes all the wrong choices at 110% speed and thus a definite recommend if you're still up.
