John Cusack directs an ensemble cast.
The weekend may not have arrived yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t relax this Thursday night with a good movie.
As such, here’s what movies are playing on TV tonight.
Ocean’s Twelve – Classic Turner Films – 9pm
George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon plan a series of heists in Europe in this fun sequel to Ocean’s Eleven.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web – Film4 – 9pm
Claire Foy stars in this soft-reboot/sequel to the incredible 2011 adaptation of the hit thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Die Another Day – ITV4 – 9pm
The last James Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan.
Cabin Fever – Horror Channel – 9pm
This 2016 remake of Eli Roth’s cult horror favorite of the same name has a 0% score on Rotten Tomatoes, so it’s probably best avoided.
Raising Baby / My Favorite Wife – BBC Four – 9pm/10:40pm
A wacky comedy double poster by Cary Grant.
Identity – Horror Channel – 22:55
Our pick for tonight stars John Cusack, Ray Liotta and Amanda Peet and follows ten strangers stranded in a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm who find they are being killed one by one.
Directed by James Mangold (Ford v Ferrari, Logan), Identity’s strong cast and ominous atmosphere pretty much make up for the film’s increasingly convoluted twists and turns.
Nerf – Movie4 – 23:15
In this techno thriller, two strangers (Dave Franco and Emma Roberts) become involved in an online challenge game that becomes increasingly dangerous.
V for Vendetta – Classic Turner Movies – 11:40 PM
Natalie Portman and a masked Hugo Weaving star in this strong adaptation of Alan Moore’s graphic novel.
Rocky IV – ITV4 – 00:40
In this sports drama sequel, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) battles Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a Soviet boxer responsible for causing personal tragedy.
Sabotage – Film4 – 01:05
The crime thriller starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, which another JOE writer recently called “absolutely disgusting.”
