Here are the 20 best movies on TV this Saturday
Spoiled for choice of a Saturday...
Yes, it's Saturday.
A day that is traditionally above average when it comes to an assembly of films on your television screen.
Let's see how the standard bears out today, shall we?
Spartacus - ITV4 - 6.15pm
Vintage swords-and-sandals epic.
Shrek the Third - RTÉ One - 6.35pm
The third one, oddly enough.
The Devil Wears Prada - E4 - 6.50pm
Biting comedy-drama with Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and a breakthrough performance from Emily Blunt.

The second one.

Does what it says on the tin, this one.
