Here are the 9 best movies on TV this Friday


We made it, guys.

It's the Friday before Christmas.

Not long to go now. How does it all look on the movies-on-TV front, though?

Let's take a look-see on this Friday 20 December...

Training Day - TCM - 9pm

Denzel Washington took home the Best Actor Oscar for his dominating turn as Alonzo Harris in this fast-paced, tension-filled thriller.

Ronaldo - Virgin Media One - 9pm

In-depth documentary on the best footballer of modern times not named Lionel Messi.

Event Horizon - SyFy - 9pm

Critically panned at the time of release and visibly affected by studio interference, yet Event Horizon has held up surprisingly well over time. A great cast and good scares help.

Rocky - ITV4 - 9pm

The original and arguably the best.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets - Film 4 - 9pm

A mess. A failure. And yet oddly compelling for those reasons.

The Night Before - RTÉ 2 - 9.30pm

Christmas-themed shenanigans with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie.

Final Destination 2 - Comedy Central - 10pm

Ah yes, noted comedy Final Destination 2.

Marianne and Leonard: Words of Love - BBC Two - 11.10pm

Documentary focusing on the tragic love story between Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen.

Must Love Dogs - RTÉ One - 11.50pm

Diane Lane and John Cusack navigate the whole 'romance' thing with the assistance of - you guessed it - dogs.
