Here are the best movies on TV this evening

This evening's options aren't the best you'll ever see.

Though there are one or two glowing exceptions...


It's Monday again, folks. The start of what is sure to be another delightfully gruelling week until we can reach the glistening shore of... next weekend. In order to pass the time, why not watch some movies on TV?
