Here are the 9 best movies on TV today

FIVE of them kick off at 9pm. Decision, decisions...

Truth be told, this is a good weekend for movie lovers.

You could head to the cinema and check out one of the three new releases, including Hustlers, Extra Ordinary, and Downton Abbey, all of which we review right here.

Otherwise, you can sit in and enjoy one or more of these instead:


X-Men: Days Of Future Past - Film4 - 6.30pm

The one where Wolverine has to go back in time to the 1970s to stop a scientist from creating a robot that will go on to wipe out all mutants on Earth. Arguably the third best of the X-Men movies, after X2 and Logan.

Zoolander - Comedy Central - 7.05pm

One of the most quoted comedies ever made, which really has to count for something.

Die Hard 4.0 - Virgin Media Two - 9pm

Bruce Willis is teamed up with a hacker to stop a group of terrorists from bringing all of America to its knees. More fun than you think it should be, but you really feel the lack of violence and lack profanity when it's missing.

The Lone Ranger - BBC Two - 9pm

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in this HUGE budget action western which is just weird enough to justify a watch.

Eye In The Sky - Channel 4 - 9pm

Helen Mirren, Alan Rickman, Aaron Paul, and more star in this brilliantly tense drone-strike thriller.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - E4 - 9pm

The one where Tom Cruise hangs off the side of the world's tallest building. A lot of fun and some great action set-pieces make up for a pretty weak villain.

Angels & Demons - Sky One - 9pm

Ridiculous but entertaining sequel (or is it a prequel? Discuss...) to The DaVinci Code, in which Tom Hanks is wrapped up in a plot involving someone trying to blow up The Vatican with a nuclear bomb.

Kill Bill Vol.2 - Dave - 10pm

Not as good as Vol.1, but the fights with Daryl Hannah in the trailer, as well as the ultimate meeting with Bill, make up for some of the duller bits in the middle.

Drag Me To Hell - Film4 - 10.55pm

If it was ever possible to properly recreate the feeling of being on a gross-out ghost train, then this is it. A young woman is cursed by a witch, and soon finds her whole life going to hell. Literally.
