A feel-good comedy-drama is among the movies on TV tonight

It stars Viggo Mortensen in an Oscar-nominated performance.

Looking for something cool to watch tonight?

Well, new Apple TV+ sci-fi thriller series Severance is worth a look.

On top of this, Amazon Prime Video has just added 28 big movies to its library.

However, if none of these are for you, here is the movies on telly situation this Tuesday evening.

The Terminator – ITV 4 – 9pm

The first in the legendary franchise where Arnie is the bad guy.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit – Film4 – 9pm

With two of his films – Belfast and Death on the Nile – currently in cinemas, why not revisit filmmaker Kenneth Branagh’s reboot of the Jack Ryan series.

Chris Pine plays the titular CIA analyist who must take down a villainous tycoon played by Branagh.

Psycho – True Movies – 9pm

Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror masterpiece still holds up to this day.

American Pie – Comedy Central – 9pm

A notoriously raunchy comedy.

Incarnate – Horror Channel – 9pm

Aaron Eckhart leads the cast of this quite poorly reviewed demonic horror.

Universal Soldier – Horror Channel – 10.45pm

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren play US soldiers killed in Vietnam that are brought back to life for a secret military programme.

This fun sci-fi action flick from Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) is arguably the best movie of either of its stars.

The Drop – Film4 – 11.10pm

A quiet bartender (Tom Hardy) in Brooklyn’s life is disrupted when the mafia-run bar he works at is robbed.

Written by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) and co-starring James Gandolfini and Noomi Rapace, this would honestly be our pick for tonight if not for the fact we already highlighted it recently.

The Thing From Another World – True Movies – 11.10pm

This ’50s sci-fi horror was famously remade by John Carpenter as The Thing in 1982.

Captain Fantastic – BBC Two – 11.15pm

In our pick for tonight, Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings) plays Ben, a father and former left-wing anarchist activist who, disillusioned with American life, raises his six children off the grid.

However, when Ben’s wife and the children’s mother dies, he and the kids embark on a road trip into the world he left behind to make sure the wishes in her will are fulfilled.

Both a funny culture-clash comedy and a fascinating exploration of parenting in the modern world, Captain Fantastic received rave reviews when it came out, with Mortensen being Oscar-nominated for his role.
