Here are the 6 best movies on TV this evening

Saturday's dank index is through the roof. Best to avoid outside life completely.

Now, we're not saying you should cut yourself off from the outside world completely, because of a little wind and rain. No, no.

Sure there are plenty of new cinema releases that you can watch while you take shelter from the elements, including Frozen II and 21 Bridges, both of which we've reviewed right here.

However, if you do decide to stay couch-bound (and frankly we don't blame you), here are the best movies to enjoy on the small screen this evening:


Shrek 2 - RTE One - 6.30pm

The pretty decent sequel brings the evil Fairy Godmother into the mix, and forces Shrek, Princess Fiona, and Donkey back on to the path of another quirky adventure.

Non-Stop - Film4 - 6.55pm

Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Scoot McNairy, Lupita Nyong'o and more star in this fun, tense thriller about an air marshall (Neeson) who is told to get his airline to transfer $150 million to an offshore account, or the passengers on his flight will be killed.

The Blind Side - RTE Two - 9pm

Based on a true story, this is the movie that finally won Sandra Bullock her Oscar, playing a woman who adopts a homeless teenager, helps him overcome his learning difficulties, and sets him on a course to become an American football legend.

The Dark Knight Rises - Sky One - 9pm

Christian Bale picks up the cowl one final time, as a new threat in the form of Tom Hardy's Bane looks set to destroy Gotham from within. Anne Hathaway makes a surprisingly decent Catwoman, while Marion Cottilard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt make fun new additions to the cast.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - Channel 4 - 9.10pm

The fourth one, in which Cruise climbs up the outside of the world's tallest building, and then gets into a car chase in the middle of a massive sandstorm in Dubai. Other things happen too, but those are the two best bits.

The Departed - ITV4 - 11pm

Scorsese. DiCaprio. Nicholson. Damon. Wahlberg. Baldwin. Farmiga. Sheen. Winstone. One of the best crime thrillers ever made.
