These are the 11 best movies on TV today

Not one but TWO documentaries on Oasis/the Gallagher brothers.

There are also four fantastic family movies on during the afternoon to gear you up for the full night on the couch.

Seriously spoiled today, so yiz are!


Paddington - E4 - 5.15pm

This shouldn't have worked as much as it did. But it did. And here we are, with these (and the sequel) as one of the greatest family movies ever made.

The LEGO Movie - Sky One - 6pm

An all-star voice cast lend themselves to the world of bricks when evil Will Ferrell sets up his nefarious plan to change their universe forever. Legitimately one of the funniest movies of the decade.

The Goonies - Comedy Central - 6.30pm

Iconic adventure movie about a group of misfit friends who go off in search of hidden treasure.

The Simpsons Movie - E4 - 7.15pm

Arguably the last time that anything related to the show was consistently funny. We'll never forgive them for taking them out of Springfield and away from the supporting characters for most of the run-time, but even at that, it is still highly watchable.

Eddie The Eagle - Channel 4 - 8pm

Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton star in this heart-warming tale of a man with a goal of becoming an Olympic ski-jumper, and he's not going to let a little thing like having no real talent get in his way.

A Date For Mad Mary - Virgin Media One - 9pm

Seana Kerslake stars in this brilliant Irish drama about a troubled young woman who finds her life taking on brand new directions when she is offered a plus one to a friend's wedding.

Sleepy Hollow - Syfy - 9pm

Maybe the last time that the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp duo really worked, in this creepy retelling of the Headless Horseman, here told as a violent murder mystery.

Ghostbusters - FilmFour - 9pm

The 2016 all-female remake was better than you heard/remember. No, it can't hold a candle to the original, but the four leads have a fantastic comedic chemistry all of their own. Too bad the rest of the film can't match them.

Liam Gallagher: As It Was - BBC Two - 10.15pm

A love letter to the hardcore fans of the man himself.

Three Kings - Virgin Media Two - 11.15pm

George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, and Ice Cube star in this irreverent action thriller about US soldiers trying to find Sadaam's hidden wealth before the entire army is pulled from the region.

Oasis: Supersonic - BBC Four - 11.40pm

The rags-to-riches story shows the rise and fall of Liam and Noel working together, showing them at their very best, and their very worst.
