Your five best movie options for a very cold Wednesday evening.

Okay, we'll be honest, tonight isn't the VERY BEST selection of movies on TV we've ever seen. It really is more a diversion rather than a surplus of truly great options, and a good alternative to being out in the cold.

Thankfully, there is a mix of action, horror, comedy, and drama, so even if they aren't the best movies ever made, chances are one of them will still entertain you this evening.

Deep Blue Sea - Comedy Central - 9pm

Movies don't get much more ridiculous (or enjoyable) than this. A group of scientists in an isolated lab in the middle of the ocean are testing on shark's brains, but accidentally make them a lot smarter, and soon they're being hunted down in the slowly sinking facility.

Office Christmas Party - FilmFour - 9pm

An impressive all-star-cast feature in this rambunctious comedy about a company of workers who decide to throw one huge Christmas party, after their boss (Jennifer Aniston) delivers them all some bad news right before the festive break.

Fish Tank - BBC Four - 11pm

15-year-old Mia (Katie Jarvis) finds her life completely turned upside down when her mum (Rachel Griffiths) brings home a new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender). A dark, compelling drama.

The Heat - FilmFour - 11.10pm

Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock are detectives with very different approaches to their job, but forced to work together on a new case. A decent comedy from the director of Bridesmaids.

I, Frankenstein - FilmFour - 1.30am

Okay, this movie is TERRIBLE, but just about terrible enough to trip over the line of so-bad-its-good. Aaron Eckhart stars as a man who has been brought back to life, made from bits of other, dead people, and tries to find out who created him and why.
