A festive favourite is among the movies on TV tonight

Only 6 more days until Christmas...

And just like clockwork, the quality of films on TV has improved exponentially.


With all the great movies on the silver screen, it's difficult to know which one to choose.

Well, not to fear, because JOE has looked through the guide and found the cream of the crop.

Here are our top picks of what to watch tonight.

White Christmas - More 4 - 5.40pm


The movie musical based on the song of the same name. Fun fact; Bing Crosby's version of the tune is the best selling single ever worldwide.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - Film4 - 6.45pm

Never mind Spider-Man films, this is one of the best animated films ever, full stop. Miles Morales discovers his new Spider-powers as other Spider-people from across the multiverse come to take down the Kingpin.

Uncle Buck - ITV2 - 7pm


John Candy stars as the beer swilling, cigar smoking uncle tasked with looking after his sisters kids.

Inglorious Bastards - RTÉ2 - 9pm

Tarantino tells the story of World War II through the medium of ultraviolence. Christoph Waltz and Ireland's own Michael Fassbender steal the show.

Love Actually - RTÉ ONE - 9.30pm


Our top pick for tonight has become a Christmas staple since it originally released in 2003.

The film is essentially a Richard Curtis version of Avengers: Endgame; lots of charming actors telling multiple stories that all culminate in one celebration of love.

Love it or hate it, it's essential viewing every year at Christmas.

Catch Me If You Can - Channel 4 - 10pm

Spielberg's biographical classic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks engaging in a high stakes game of cat and mouse.


Moon: Sony Movie Channel - 11.25pm

Further proof that Sam Rockwell is a criminally underrated classic. This sci-fi flick directed by Duncan Jones is a mind melter, and a brilliant one at that.

Spider-Man: Far From Home - BBC One - 11.45pm

Make sure you've caught up with the biggest film on the planet at the moment by watching the film preceding it. This is definitely one of the better MCU films going.
