Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:
In “Lord of War” Nicholas Cage stars as Yuri Orlov an opportunistic businessman who stumbled into a gold mine after the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Orlov’s exploits in the arms business quickly made him a very rich man, but they’ve also led to some unwanted attention from Jack Valentine (Ethan Hawke), an Interpol agent who is convinced Orlov isn’t playing by the rules. It airs at 10;15 p.m. ET.
Much like The Blues Brothers Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus believe they are on a mission from God. But instead of singing the blues in matching suits, these two brothers begin killing members of Boston’s underworld, just as God wanted. “The Boondock Saints” starts at 10:15 p.m. ET.
On Tuesday at 8/7c we’re showing “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” and tonight we’re showing the second half. Yep start practicing killing a man with one hand, because we’re showing “Kill Bill: Vol. 2” starting at 8/7c. Watch as The Bride (Uma Thurman) takes down her former boss (David Carradine), his younger brother (Michael Madsen) and Daryl Hannah, to boot.
The alien invasion in “District 9” doesn’t involve carving mountains out of mashed potatoes or enlisting Will Smith or Ben Affleck to save the world. Instead the aliens are all put into a refugee camp in South Africa under the control of a multinational corporation. Everything changes though when a field operative (Sharlto Copley) contracts a mysterious virus that begins to change his DNA. Tune in at 8/7c.
Don’t panic and pack a towel because we’re showing “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” at 8 p.m ET.
You don’t want to miss Good Guys Wear Black when it starts at 6/5c, because if you did miss it, Chuck Norris would hunt you and then Chuck Norris would find you. And you don’t want Chuck Norris to find you.
