It’s Friday.

There are movies on the television.

This is how that combination looks on this Friday 17 May…

Skyfall – ITV2 – 8pm

Daniel Craig’s best Bond after Casino Royale, but it sure is close.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day – ITV4 – 9pm

Legitimately one of the greatest action films of all time.

47 Ronin – E4 – 9pm

Keanu Reeves heads up a samurai adventure. Yes, Keanu Reeves.

True Lies – Film 4 – 10.50pm

When he said ‘I do’, he never said what he did.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – ITV4 – 11.50pm

You’ll need a good deal of patience for this languid spy drama, but what a line-up.

Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Toby Jones do battle.

Free Fire – Channel 4 – 12.35am

A top cast – Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Jack Reynor, Michael Smiley – face off in a warehouse shootout after an arms deal goes awry.
