X-Men: Apocalypse – Channel 4 – 11.15pm

Our main choice on a let's be honest poor enough evening for movies on TV.


The great Oscar Isaac is buried in bad make-up as the titular villain in what was handily the worst X-Men movie until Dark Phoenix followed it a couple of years later. Bad franchise for the most part, this one!

Isaac's nonsense performance is kind of fun, though? Maybe?

Tiffany Haddish leads the line in a comedy this writer has never heard of before.

I Spit on Your Grave – Legend – Midnight

Revenge-fuelled horror remake. Much less controversial than the original.
