Maze movies

A crossover between Jaws and Alien is among the movies on TV tonight

It’s Friday.

It’s very hot.

It’s time to watch movies on TV.

Here’s what it looks like tonight…

Dad at home 2 – E4 – 9 p.m.

He is back!

Underwater – Film4 – 9 p.m.

Our top pick for you tonight, and the crossover between Jaws and Alien we mentioned in the title above.

Warning! It’s nowhere near as good as either of those two movies, but they’re classics, so let’s just set our expectations on a “watchable sci-fi thriller” and relax, relax. you and enjoy it, yes?

Kristin Stewart plays a mechanical engineer at an underwater facility that’s attacked by something decidedly monstrous. Can she and her team survive the mysterious onslaught?

The Terminator – ITV4 – 9:05 p.m.

Arnie’s first outing as a T-800.

The horrible truth – RTÉ 2 – 10:30 p.m.

The Stalking Moon – TG4 – 10:35 p.m.

TG4 showing a western on a Friday night, you say?

The Champ – RTÉ One – 10:40 p.m.

Classic rural Irish drama you’ve probably seen in school once or twice.

The Grudge – Film4 – 10:50 p.m.

The 2020 remake of the 2004 horror, which was too a remake. Confused? Don’t blame yourself. Either way, if you like scary jumps and ultra-thin tracks, this one’s for you!
