Loads and LOADS of movies to check out during your Friday evening on the couch!

It’s Friday, and you know what that means.

It means microwave popcorn, cheap wine, and a night in front of the telly watching the best of cinema, all from the comfort of your couch.

Here’s your choices for this Friday’s (10 November) Movies on TV.

Peppermint – Virgin Media One – 9pm
For a name like Peppermint, there’s nothing fresh about this action thriller.

The Predator – E4 – 9pm
A vicious alien murders a team of PTSD-stricken soldiers in gory fashion. Hilarity ensues.

Escape Room: Tournament of Champions – BBC Three – 9pm

I’ve heard of escape rooms that are to die for, but this is ridiculous.

The Expendables 2 – Sky Max – 9pm

Jean Claude Van Damme plays a bad guy called Jean Vilain. 10/10, no notes.

Ad Astra – FilmFour – 9pm

Brad Pitt’s space adventure is visually stunning, along with a great performance from Ireland’s own Ruth Negga.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly – TG4 – 9.30pm
Nearly three hours of the greatest staring ever committed to film.

The Winter Lake – RTÉ Two – 9.50pm
Sex Education’s Emma Mackey appears in this Irish-Canadian thriller.

A Kiss Before Dying – Legend – 10.50pm
A doomed romance from the creator of Fatal Attraction? Sign me up.

It’s pure nonsensical, over the top, and the most fun you can have on a Friday night with your clothes on. If you’re planning a late one, this is the double bill for you.

Charlie’s Angels & Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle – FilmFour – 11.20am & 1.15am
Our top pick for tonight is a true feast for the senses. Citizen Kane? The Godfather? All pale in comparison to the majesty that is the Charlie’s Angels duology.

Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore at the heights of their powers take the roles of the titular Angels, fighting crime, kicking ass, and learning about friendship along the way. If you need any idea of what to expect, just know that the films were directed by auteur McG, responsible for potentially the most 90s music video of all time.

Van Wilder: Party Liaison – Comedy Central – 11.30pm

Before Deadpool, before Wrexham, before becoming an international sweetheart, Ryan Reynolds played an avid partier in this terrible film in the National Lampoon series.

Tara Road – RTÉ One – 11.50pm
An American adaptation of the Maeve Binchy novel of the same name. One for the mums.

48 Hours – Channel 4 – 12.10am
Eddie Murphy’s film debut. We wish we could spend 48 hours with these characters.

The Shallows – Channel 4 – 1.50am
A great night for fans of the Reynolds/Lively household, with this 2016 horror starring Blake on for the night owls.
