These are the seven best movies on TV tonight

Rory Cashin

A great comedy. A true-life thriller. A Bond movie. Whatever you’re looking for, tonight’s movies have you covered.

Tuesdays are tough. Nobody really knows what to be doing with themselves on a Tuesday. Take the easy option and just watch one of these movies on the telly. We’ve taken out all the hard work for you and picked the best ones, starting with…

A View To A Kill – ITV4 – 8pm

Roger Moore’s final outing as 007 sees him taking on Christopher Walken and Grace Jones in their plan to flood Silicon Valley. It is a ridiculous film, but it also features some great stunts, like a parachute jump from the Eiffel tower, so it is also a lot of fun. But yes, very ridiculous.

Starsky & Hutch – Comedy Central – 9pm

A remake of the much-loved 70s TV show, with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in the lead roles, taking on Vince Vaughn’s gangster bad guy. Somehow this got lost in between the releases of Old School and Dodgeball and Anchorman, but it is actually a very good comedy. Recommended.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War – E4 – 9pm

Kirsten Stewart is out, but Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain are in, and Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are still around. All of the ladies involved seem to be having some kind of secret Who Can Overact The Most competition, and while it isn’t as good as the decent original, it is still a distracting two hours.

All The Money In The World – FilmFour – 9pm

Michelle Williams’ son is kidnapped, who demand A LOT of money from her incredibly rich father J. Paul Getty (played by Christopher Plummer, who famously replaced Kevin Spacey after the movie was completely), who refuses to pay. Instead, a sort of private investigator (Mark Wahlberg) is sent to try to solve the issue as quickly and as cheaply as possible. This is our pick for the very best movie on tonight.

The Hangover Part II – RTE2 – 9.30pm

The Wolfpack head to Thailand for a darker, dirtier sequel to the infamous blackout mystery-comedy. Monkeys, face tattoos, and drug lords. Y’know, the usual for these guys.

Kick-Ass 2 – Sky One – 10pm

Another sequel, with Jim Carrey joining the ranks of the cast as an OTT vigilante, willing to bring as much justice as possible to the criminals he crosses paths. However, his overly violent tendencies bring him head-to-head with Kick-Ass and Hit Girl.

Our Kind Of Traitor – FilmFour – 11.40pm

For all you night owls out there, Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard, Naomie Harris and Damian Lewis star in this low-key spy thriller, dealing with a married couple who cross paths with the wrong man at the wrong time.
