A hidden gem thriller is among the movies on TV tonight
Your Monday evening movie menu has arrived!
Chances are you're either watching the finale of Succession tonight, or one of 2023's most controversial movies which has just been added to Prime Video. But if not but you're still on the hunt for something to watch, check out our list of movies on TV tonight, starting with...
Men In Black - FilmFour - 6.55pm
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones star in this brilliant blend of bonkers sci-fi, clever comedy and big action set-pieces.
The Scorpion King - ITV4 - 7.10pm
Redeeming himself (slightly) after the abhorrent appearance in The Mummy Returns, we get this prequel from The Rock which plays like a family friendly version of Conan The Barbarian.
Shrek - Sky Showcase - 7.15pm
The original (and best?) of the animated fairytale franchise, with a very impressive voice cast including Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and John Lithgow.
Let Him Go - FilmFour - 9pm
Our pick for the night is this dramatic thriller than was unfortunate enough to arrive in cinemas juuuuuuust as the pandemic was hitting full swing, which meant pretty much nobody went to see it. Which is a shame, as this is a grown-up thriller about a retired sheriff (Kevin Costner) and his wife (Diane Lane) who try to save their grandson from a dangerous family who are living off the grid.
Fast & Furious 6 - Sky Showcase - 9pm
The one with the tank and then the endless airport runway. A LOT of fun, even if it does leave any sense of reality in the rear-view mirror.
American Assassin - TG4 - 9.30pm
Dylan O'Brien plays a young man who gets enlisted in the CIA by a recruiter (Michael Keaton) after his girlfriend is killed in a terrorist attack. It... isn't a very good action thriller.
The Long Good Friday - FilmFour - 11.15pm
Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren and Pierce Brosnan star in what is considered to be one of the very best crime movies ever made.
The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen - TCM - 11.20pm
This title implies you've never seen this version before, but you might have, because this version of the classic horror seems to be on the telly a lot lately...
Mean Machine - FilmFour - 1.30am
Vinnie Jones, Jason Statham and Danny Dyer star in this comedy drama about a group of prison inmates who organise a friendly game of football with the guards and other prison officials.
