Here are all the best movies on TV today

A very healthy selection on the box.

With Bad Boys For Life, Bombshell and Just Mercy all being released in your local cinema this weekend - you can check out our reviews of them here - it's a pretty decent few days for new releases.

However, if you fancy chilling on the couch and staying nice and cosy, here are the best films on TV tonight.


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - 6:05 on ITV2

Jack Sparrow races to recover the heart of Davy Jones. Yep, remember him? He's the owner of the finest squid-beard in cinematic history.

The Lego Batman Movie - 6:35pm on RTÉ1

Not as good as the Lego Movie but it still packs a few laughs.

Beetlejuice - 8pm on Comedy Central

" Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK?!?!?!?!? You think I'm qualified?"

Michael Keaton's performance is breathtaking throughout Tim Burton's gothic comedy.

Assassin's Creed - 9pm on Channel 4

It really should have been much better than what it ended up being.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - 9pm on E4

Ethan Hunt and his team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organisation as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

It's the one where Tom Cruise hangs off a plane and it's very good.

Bad Boys II - 9pm on Sky One

Shit just got real.

xXx - 9pm on SyFy

Vin Diesel saves the world.

Knocked Up - 9:15pm on TG4

Very good film with Paul Rudd number one.

Ant-Man - 9:35pm on RTÉ2

Very good film with Paul Rudd number two.

Jackass: The Movie - 10pm on Comedy Central

You know what you're getting into.

National Lampoon's European Vacation - 10:45 on ITV4

Clark Griswold: Hello, my family and I were looking for sex.

German Neighbor: Schweinhund!

Horrible Bosses - 10:50 on UTV

Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston and Charlie Day are all solid throughout, but the film is a bit uneven.

Birdman - 11pm on BBC Two

Controversial klaxon, it never should have won the Oscar over Boyhood.

However, there's still lots to like about Iñárritu's tale of a washed-up actor that's attempting to revive his fading career by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway production.

Michael Keaton is great throughout, but we still prefer him in Beetlejuice.

The Wolverine - 11:10pm on Channel 4

James Mangold went on to make the brilliant Logan with Hugh Jackman. Their first stab at the beloved X-Men character isn't great though.

The Crying Game  -11:45pm on RTÉ2

Neil Jordan won an Oscar for this tale of a British soldier kidnapped by IRA terrorists who soon befriends one of his captors. However, he becomes drawn into the soldier's world.

Definitely worth watching if you've never seen it before.
