Saturday night's all right for watching movies

Let's face it: there's no good TV on Saturday nights. Programmers just assume everyone's off having fun elsewhere, and they're probably right. But on the off-chance that you find yourself couch-bound this evening, here are some options you might want to navigate over to using your remote control:

The Replacements (TNT, 8PM): Keanu Reeves as quarterback to a motley crew of replacement football players. Not unpleasant to watch, but you could probably do better.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (TBS, 8PM): This is definitely better. Viggo Mortensen rocks my socks as Aragorn, though certainly some ladies lean more in a Legolas direction, and they can't be blamed. You Gimli girls out there, I'm concerned for you. Definitely worth a watch.

Die Hard with a Vengeance (FX, 8PM): Is it really possible to die with a vengeance? Bruce Willis explores that philosophical question in this searching, soulful drama about mortality and revenge. Oh, who am I kidding? Bruce blows shit up, and it's kind of awesome, though it would be better if he were Viggo.

The Wedding Singer (Comedy Central, 6PM): Wedding singer Adam Sandler is going crazy, and you are reaping all the benefits.

Hmm...looking at these movies, you better get out of the house tonight.
