Among the movies on TV tonight is an incredibly tense movie.

Other movie options include not one, not two, but THREE Nicolas Cage films.

One of the best Irish films of the year and one of the most interesting cinematic flops of 2023 is now available to watch at home.


However, speaking of even more movies, here’s what’s airing on TV tonight.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring – Sky Showcase – 20:35

The first and perhaps the best part of the Lord of the Rings series.

“Boiling Point” – film from 16:00 to 21:00.


Our pick for the evening is the British drama, which scored a whopping 99% of the votes on Rotten Tomatoes.

Shot in one long take, Boiling Point focuses on the chef (Stephen Graham – The Duty, This Is England) of one of London’s trendiest restaurants.

However, on the restaurant’s busiest night of the year, multiple personal and professional crises threaten to derail everything the chef has worked for.

Directed by Philip Barantini (whose latest film Accused has just been added to Netflix), Boiling Point was previously named Joe’s “most intense film” of 2022, the year it was released in Ireland.


And there’s no better time to watch the drama for the first time, or to revisit it as it gets a TV spin-off, premiering on BBC One on October 1.

As for the film version of Boiling Point, it can also be rented on Apple TV+, Google Play, Curzon, Sky Store and Volta.
