Here Are The 7 Best Films On TV Tonight

The Premier League is back, there's League Of Ireland football to watch, and the PRO 14 final is on too. Aside from this, there's the US Open, Tuscan Grand Prix, UFC and more.

Ah, what a weekend of sport to watch on the TV but if you fancy a change, there's plenty to watch on the box too.

For example, War Of The Buttons is on tomorrow, while Louis Theroux and David Attenborough have new documentaries airing on Sunday evening.

However, the focus is on tonight and here are some of the titles that piqued our interest at The Rewind.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - 7pm on SyFy

Plot: A local scientist is often regarded as a failure until he invents a machine that can make food fall from the sky. But little does he know, that things are about to take a turn for the worst.

Watch it because: Lord and Miller's brilliant animation never gets the credit it deserves because in our opinion, it's up there with the very best of the genre. FYI, Steve The Monkey is one of the greatest animated characters ever created.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle- 21.oo on Channel 4

Plot: After the Kingsman's headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, an allied spy organisation in the United States is discovered. These two elite secret organisations must band together to defeat a common enemy.

Watch it because: It doesn't hit the high marks of the first film, but there's still plenty of stupid fun to be had in the spy caper.

Beverly Hills Cop - 9pm on Sky One

Plot: A freewheeling Detroit cop pursuing a murder investigation finds himself dealing with the very different culture of Beverly Hills.

Watch it because: Eddie Murphy is superb in this and it's still endlessly quotable. The fish out of water laughs still hold up.

Coming to America - 9pm on Comedy Central

Plot: An extremely pampered African Prince travels to Queens, New York, and goes undercover to find a wife that he can respect for her intelligence and will.

Watch it because: Eddie Murphy is superb in this and it's still endlessly quotable: Part Two. Even thinking about Randy Watson, Sexual Chocolate, and the scene at the barbershop when the old men are talking about boxing will make you laugh. It's all gold.

Thor: Ragnarok- 21.20 on RTÉ2

Plot: Imprisoned on the planet Sakaar, Thor must race against time to return to Asgard and stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his world, at the hands of the powerful and ruthless villain Hela.

Watch it because: It's easily one of the best and funniest films in the MCU. Taika Waititi is a genius and we defy anyone not to love Korg. Even if you hate comic-book films, give this one a chance.

Memento - 21.45 on BBC2

Plot: A man with short-term memory loss attempts to track down his wife's murderer.

Watch it because: The Christopher Nolan film that made the world standup and take notice of his remarkable talent. In terms of plot, Tenet was a mess but this is so well-crafted in comparison.

Hacksaw Ridge- 22.45 on UTV

Plot: World War II American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the Battle of Okinawa, refuses to kill people, and becomes the first man in American history to receive the Medal of Honor without firing a shot.

Watch it because: It's grissly and violent, but it's also one of the best war films of the last decade.
