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.
