Here are the 12 best movies on TV this Saturday

Saturday, baby.

It's that time.

Movies. On. TV.

Here's how it looks on this not-quite-Christmas-yet Saturday 7 December...

Spider-Man 3 - SyFy - 7pm

An overstuffed, over-acted mess that is worth watching for all the wrong reasons.

Captain America: Civil War - ITV2 - 7.30pm

The third one.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - Channel 4 - 9pm

The fifth one, and the best until Fallout came along.

World War Z - E4 - 9pm

Brad Pitt battles zombies and development hell.

The Matrix - Sky One - 9pm

Holds up, 20 years on.

JFK - TG4 - 9.15pm

Oliver Stone's controversial-at-the-time account of the assassination of US President John F Kennedy and the resulting attempts to find justice.

Kevin Costner is at a career-best level here.

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer - SyFy - 10pm

Rushed horror sequel that really speaks to the post-Scream era.

Raw - Film 4 - 11.20pm

Challenging, evocative and very bloody French horror.

Foxcatcher - RTÉ 2 - 11.50pm

Intense fact-based drama in which an eccentric millionaire recruits an Olympic champion wrestler to join his team, with tragic consequences.

Memento - BBC One - 12.10am

Christopher Nolan introduces himself properly as Guy Pearce - as perhaps the ultimate unreliable narrator - struggles to find his wife's killer.

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three - RTÉ One - 12.30am

Terrific cops and robbers thriller not to be confused with the John Travolta-led remake of the same name, which isn't very good at all.

Short Term 12 - BBC Two - 1.30am

Brie Larson shines in her first leading performance, paving the way for the likes of Room and Captain Marvel as she holds this sensitive indie drama aloft.
