One of the best crime thrillers of the 21st century is among the movies on TV tonight

It's a must-watch for fans of the likes of Mindhunter and Zodiac.

The weekend is among us, meaning more time to check out some movies and TV shows.


And as such, JOE recommended three particular things to watch over the next few days in the video below.

However, if you need more options, here are the films on telly this Saturday night (8 October).


Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi - Channel 4 - 8.40pm

The most divisive Star Wars film to date.

Rush Hour - Comedy Central - 9pm

Two mismatched police officers (Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker) are assigned to rescue a Chinese diplomat's abducted daughter in this buddy action comedy.


The Hitman's Bodyguard - Film4 - 9pm

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson do their thing in this watchable if forgettable action comedy.

The Vatican Tapes - Horror Xtra - 9pm

A supernatural horror made by one of the directors behind the Crank films.

21 Jump Street - RTÉ2 - 9.15pm

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen are excellent in this black comedy-drama and social media satire.

Memories of Murder - Film4 - 11.20pm

Our pick for tonight is based on true events and follows two inexperienced detectives in a small South Korean province in the '80s who struggle with the case of multiple young women being murdered by an unknown culprit.

Directed by Bong Joon-ho, who would later re-team with Memories of Murder's star Song Kang-ho on Oscar Best Picture winner Parasite, this 2003 movie infuses its haunting story with smart social commentary and a dash of dark comedy to create a crime thriller epic that fans of the likes of Mindhunter and Zodiac should love.

The great Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) directs this incredibly tense fact-based drama set during the 1967 Detroit riots.

Mechanic: Resurrection - Channel 4 - 11.35pm

Jason Statham returns as The Mechanic in this forgettable, generic sequel.

Adam & Paul - RTÉ2 - 11.45pm

One of the best Irish films ever made, we've recommended this comedy-drama many times before.
