Tarantino's most divisive film is among the movies on TV tonight
Your movies on TV menu for Thursday evening has arrived!
If you're in a movie mood this evening, you'll be happy to hear that Netflix has just added 19 huge movies to its library. But if none of those are of interest, here are all of the good, the bad, and the medium movies on your telly this evening, starting with...
Bridge of Spies - FilmFour - 6.15pm
Spielberg directs Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance in this political thriller set against the Berlin Wall. One of his better movies of the last decade or so.
Lethal Weapon 2 - TCM - 9pm
The one with the very boo hiss "Diplomatic immunity!" bad guy.
Licence to Kill - ITV4 - 9pm
Timothy Dalton's second and final outing as Bond sees him suspended from MI6 as he takes on a mission to track down a drug lord. Oddly, there is actually too much plot for a 007 movie in this one.
The Book of Eli - FilmFour - 9pm
Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis star in this visually impressive but not all that exciting post-apocalyptic action thriller.
Tea With Mussolini - BBC Four - 9pm
Maggie Smith, Cher, Judi Dench and Lily Tomlin star in this comedy-drama war film about a group of women raising a young boy, and how all of their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of WWII.
Death Proof - FilmFour - 11.15pm
Our pick of the movies on TV tonight is Tarantino's infamous take on a horror movie, in which a stunt car driver (Kurt Russell) targets young women with his indestructible car. Unfortunately for him, he may have just crossed paths with the wrong group of ladies...
Co-starring Rosario Dawson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose McGowan, and famed stunt performer Zoe Bell playing herself, the movie recently celebrated its 15 year anniversary, which remains Tarantino's biggest box office flop to date, but it is arguably the most interesting film he's made so far.
USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage - TCM - 11.20pm
Nic Cage headlines this terrible, terrible war movie set aboard a sinking war ship.
Maximum Conviction - ITV4 - 11.45pm
Steven Seagal and Steve Austin star in this action thriller we'd literally never heard of before. 25% on Rotten Tomatoes doesn't bode well.
Roman J Isreal, Esq - Channel 4 - 2.15am
Denzel Washington again, this time playing a lawyer forced to break the rules to get ahead. Colin Farrell co-stars, and it comes from the director of the brilliant Nightcrawler, so this should have been brilliant. Instead, it is only okay.
