An iconic '80s film is among the movies on TV tonight
Some very decent options for your Tuesday evening on the couch!
Hello there movie lovers! I'm here to tell you all about your Tuesday evening film options. You could check out one of 2023's best reviewed movies, which has just been made available to watch at home. Or you could check out this three-part documentary just added to Netflix focusing on an infamous real-life murder mystery. Or you've got the following list of movies on TV to choose from...
Blackbird - FilmFour - 9pm
Unfortunately not the infamous Michael Flatley spy thriller of the same name, but instead a pretty average family drama with a well-above-average cast (Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, Kate Winslet, Mia Wasikowska).
22 Jump Street - RTÉ 2 - 9pm
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill return for this very good action comedy sequel, which moves the undercover cops from high school to college.
American Pie 2 - Comedy Central - 9pm
A prime example of a movie not aging very well at all. But that was 2001 for you...
Limitless - Sky Showcase - 9pm
Bradley Cooper headlines this entertaining sci-fi thriller about a man who begins taking an experimental drug which allows him access to more of his brain. A bit like that Scar-Jo movie Lucy, but with less turning-into-a-god, more turning-into-a-great-businessman.
The Sweaty Sax Dude from The Lost Boys, our main pick of the flicks tonight
The Lost Boys - BBC Three - 10pm
Our big pick tonight is The Lost Boys, one of the most iconic movies to arrive from the 1980s. Director Joel Schumacher puts together the most 1980s cast imaginable - Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Feldman, Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter - for his supernatural vampire comedy thriller. If you don't watch it tonight, The Lost Boys is currently available to rent on Apple TV, Google Play, Rakuten TV and the Sky Store.
Saw II - Sky Max - 11pm
Donnie Wahlberg joins the cast for this horror sequel, trying to find his kidnapped son, who is at the centre of Jigsaw's latest shenanigans. This will be the official sequel to the upcoming Saw X, which actually takes place between the first and second Saw movies, and is in cinemas this weekend.
Desperado - FilmFour - 11pm
A fantastic action movie, with director Robert Rodriguez throwing his heroes Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek into increasingly inventive shoot outs and explosions.
