Here are the 5 best movies on TV on Thursday

Happy Thursday. Watch a movie.


The week is nearly done. And what a week it has been.


Whatever your plans are for the weekend, prepare properly for them by relaxing on the couch and watching a movie on the television.


Here's what tonight has to offer:


Doctor Zhivago - 8pm - BBC Four 


A movie that was once banned in the Soviet Union as it was seen as a tool being used to undermine the Russians. Decent watch if you can look past that...


Happy Gilmore - 9pm - Comedy Central


Adam Sandler's best movie and we won't hear otherwise. "You're gonna die, clown!"

The Equalizer - 9pm - ITV4

Action thriller based on the TV series, starring the brilliant Denzel Washington and the slightly-less-but-still-very-talented Chloe Grace Moretz. Denzel vs Russia. Can't beat it.


Pale Rider - 9pm - TCM


A 1985 American Western film produced and directed by Clint Eastwood, which sees the man doing what he does best.


The Swamp - 10.05pm - Sky Documentaries 


A fascinating insight into Republican senators over what has been an utterly bizarre three-year period, especially with the election coming up.
