If you’ve never seen it, we really can’t recommend it enough.

Your Monday evening Movies On TV menu has arrived, and it is STACKED with some great choices. And some not-so-great choices. Here they are in full…

Licence to Kill – ITV4 – 6.15pm

Benicio Del Toro is the villain in this Bond movie, which features a fairly great theme song from Gladys Knight.

Star Trek – FilmFour – 6.35pm

Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto and more star in this big budget reboot of the sci-fi franchise.

Spider-Man 3 – Sky Showcase – 8pm

The one with Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) fighting Sandman (Thomas Hayden Church), the Hobgoblin (James Franco) and Venom (Topher Grace). Arguably the worst of the Spider-Man movies to date.

Independence Day – FilmFour – 9pm

Aliens target all of Earth’s most famous landmarks in this massively popular but kinda dumb blockbuster.

Se7en – TG4 – 9.30pm

Our main pick for the night is this absolutely brilliant serial killer thriller, directed by David Fincher, who was out to prove himself after Alien 3 flopped so badly. He’d go on to direct modern classics like Fight Club, Zodiac and Gone Girl, but this thriller is where everyone sat up and paid attention. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman star as detectives forced to work together on a new case, in which victims are being targeted in relation to the seven deadly sins.

Assassins – ITV4 – 10pm

Sylvester Stallone plays the world’s greatest assassin, who decides he wants to retire, and suddenly becomes the target for the world’s second best assassin (Antonio Banderas).

Do The Right Thing – BBC Two – 11.15pm

Spike Lee’s legendary comedy drama in which a Wall Of Fame in a local pizzeria becomes the source for racial tensions in New York borough.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Meyers – TCM – 11.15pm

Maybe the worst of the series, to be honest.

The Craft – FilmFour – 11.50pm

A new student (Robin Tunney) befriends three girls in her class, only to discover they all practise witchcraft. She joins their mini-coven, but things soon turn dark in this none-more-90s teen movie.

Book Club – FilmFour – 1.55am

Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Burgen and more star in this painfully unfunny comedy about a group of women who get together to read Fifty Shades of Grey.
