Here are the 5 best movies on TV this Monday
It's movie time.
The weekend is over, the stretch in the evening has become almost unbearably grand, and there are movies to be watched.
With Game of Thrones and Chernobyl both having come to an end, you might be looking for guidance on what to fill your Monday evening with. Luckily, we've done some of the legwork to help you make your selection.
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines - Sky One - 9pm
Released in 2003, 22 years after Terminator 2, Rise of the Machines sees Arnold Schwarzenegger doing what he does best. Running around looking all muscly and throwing out catchphrases. This is a good movie if you're really into the expanded universe of Terminator. Maybe you are. We don't judge.
I, Dolours - RTÉ - 9.35pm
A documentary about the life of Dolours Price, a young woman who joined the IRA in the early '70s. Price was imprisoned for the Old Bailey bombing, which injured 200 people, and went on hunger strike for more than 200 days.
The disturbing documentary was released just last year, and tonight is its TV premiere. Definitely worth watching.
The Expendables 3 - Channel 5 - 11pm
That's right, a movie even dumber than Terminator 3. It doesn't really matter what the plot is once you see the cast:
- Sylvester Stallone
- Jason Statham
- Antonio Banderas
- Jet Li
- Wesley Snipes
- Dolph Lundgren
- Kelsey Grammer
- Randy Couture
- Terry Crews
- Mel Gibson
- Harrison Ford
- Arnold Schwarzenegger
- Kellan Lutz
- Ronda Rousey
You get the picture.
Scarface - ITV - 11.05pm
Depending on who you talk to, Scarface is one of Pacino's best roles and a classic of the gangster genre, or a joke that's not fit to lace the boots of The Godfather or Goodfellas.
We're here to objectively confirm that Scarface is one of the most enthralling, most quotable, outright best films ever made. Everybody say goodnight to the bad guy, and say hello to my little friend.
Fading Gigolo - TG4 - 11.10pm
A film written by, directed by and starring John Turturro — most recently known for his star turn in HBO's The Night Of.
This weird comedy sees him joined on-screen by Woody Allen and Sharon Stone. Turturro plays the gigolo and Allen plays the pimp.
