Below are our picks for this evening.

There's Something About Mary - Comedy Central - 9pm

A man (Ben Siller) gets a chance to meet up with his dream girl (Cameron Diaz) from high school, even though his date with her back then was a complete disaster.

Boasting gross out gags but also charming performances and a lot of heart, There's Something About Mary is crude and rude yet undeniably funny.

Kingsman: The Secret Service - Film Four - 9pm

Taron Egerton and Colin Firth kick ass in this very fun and violent send-up of Bond flicks. A prequel is on the way soon.

Psycho - True Movies - 9pm

A secretary (Janet Leigh) embezzles $40,000 from her employer's client, goes on the run, and checks into a remote motel run by a young man (Anthony Perkins) under the domination of his mother.

Iconic thanks to its infamous shower scene and Bernard Herrmann's terrifying score, this 1960 horror from the legendary Alfred Hitchcock remains a high point of the genre.

Raging Bull - TG4 - 9.35pm

Raging Bull recounts the life of boxer Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro), whose violence and temper that led him to the top in the ring destroyed his life outside of it.

The movie which earned its star his second Oscar, Martin Scorsese's black and white sports drama is a bruising, tough watch that's also incredibly compelling.

La La Land - RTÉ One - 9.40pm

While navigating their careers in Los Angeles, a pianist (Ryan Gosling) and an actress (Emma Stone) fall in love while attempting to reconcile their aspirations for the future.

Emotional yet playful and featuring some lovely dance numbers, this modern musical and comedy-drama earned Damien Chazelle the best director award at the 2016 Oscars.

Taken - Channel 4 - 9.50pm

Liam Neeson tells the people who kidnapped his daughter he will look for them, find them, and kill them. He then does just that. Perfection.

Double Jeopardy - Virgin Media Two - 10pm

A woman (Ashley Judd) framed for her husband's murder suspects he is still alive. As she has already been tried for the crime, she can't be re-prosecuted if she finds and kills him.

Featuring an awesome premise and a typically brilliant turn from Tommy Lee Jones essentially playing his character from The Fugitive, Double Jeopardy is a top-notch 90's Hollywood thriller.

Kill List - Film Four - 11.35pm

Our pick for the night centres on a hitman (Neil Maskell) who takes a new assignment with the promise of a big payoff for three killings. What starts off as an easy task soon unravels, sending the killer into the heart of darkness.

Kill List is one of those great horror films that takes its time making you believe in the characters and their world so that when the plot takes a turn to more heightened horror territory, we believe it.

Tense, thrilling and terrifying, the film culminates in a nerve-shreddingly shocking finale.

Iron Man - RTÉ Two - 11.55pm

The movie which launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man remains one of the high points of not only the MCU but the entire superhero genre.
