Two genuine action classics, a great comedy, and one of the scariest movies of all time.
Here’s a look at some of the best movies on the telly tonight.
WEDNESDAY 27 JUNE
Die Hard – Film 4 – 9.00pm
There is absolutely no reason to write anything about why you should watch this movie, so we’re not going to.
Just Friends – E! Entertainment – 9.00pm
Ryan Reynolds was the friend-zoned BFF to the town hottie when he was a teenager, but now that he’s grown up and rich and powerful and looks like Ryan Reynolds, he returns back to his hometown thinking he’s got a better shot. But he soon resorts to the same dorky teenager he was back then. Features a completely scene-stealing Anna Faris.
Demolition Man – ITV4 – 9.05pm
Sly Stallone is the maniac that they send to catch another maniac, played by a bleach blonde Wesley Snipes, in a future version of America where crime doesn’t exist and everyone uses seashells to wipe their bottoms. No, we still don’t understand how they work, either.
The Blair Witch Project – Sky One – 11.00pm
The movie that kicked off the whole found-footage craze in horror that still exists to this very day – the Unfriended sequel is out this summer! – but even nearly 20 years later, this one still packs a punch. Even though we want to climb into the TV screen and punch the guy who threw away the map!
Moonrise Kingdom – Film 4 – 1.55am (so more or less first thing Thursday morning)
Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzmann, Harvey Keitel and loads more star in Wes Anderson’s comedy-drama about two kids who run away together, and all of the quirky adults are forced to work together to find them.
