And now on to the stuff you can watch at home this week, starting with...

THE LAST DUEL

Ridley Scott's dark period epic was probably a bit too heavy and dark for cinema going audiences in the middle of a pandemic, but home viewing might be the perfect time for this slept-on gem to be re-evaluated. Jodie Comer, Adam Driver, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck star in a story of betrayal and assault between friends and family.

The Last Duel is available to watch on Disney+ right now.

DEVS

From the sci-fi mind behind Ex Machina, Annihilation, Sunshine and 28 Days Later, this mystery takes place at the centre of a tech company run by a reclusive genius (Nick Offerman), and the circumstances surrounding the death of one of his employees.

All episodes from the first season are available to watch on Disney+.

CHUCKY

The first Child's Play movie arrived over three decades ago, and he has remained a cornerstone of horror ever since. In his first TV series, he takes his particular brand of murderous mayhem to a sleepy town that starts to turn on itself when the bodies begin pilling up.

All episodes from the first season are available to watch on NOW.

Godzilla VS Kong is available to watch on NOW this weekend.

And finally, the amazingly exciting Pizza And A Movie section, with Rory and Eoghan each picking a movie for you to enjoy at home this weekend, and putting it to a public vote to decide which is the better pick...

Here are this week's picks, with the vote once again going up on JOE's Instagram channel, so keep an eye out on that to have your say!

Rory's Pick - KISS KISS BANG BANG

Since we're officially in December now, time for some Christmas movies! This hilarious mystery features Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer and scene-stealing Michelle Monaghan in the depths of a Hollywood-set murder plot.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is available to watch on Prime Video.

Eoghan's Pick - MAGIC MIKE

To celebrate Channing Tatum's recent announcement that the third and final Magic Mike movie is on the way, why not go back to the fantastic original. Clothing optional, we guess?
