These are the six best movies on TV tonight

You've got some tough TV decisions to make tonight!

Friday night, and your choices are overflowing!

You've got the stacked couches joining Graham Norton and Ryan Tubridy, and then there are the new additions to the streaming platforms this weekend.

But if you're not watching the new Marvel show on Disney+ (which you should), or the new horror show on Apple TV+ (which you should), or the incredible new Oscar-magnet drama on Prime Video (which you should) or the new big budget action movie on Netflix (which you shouldn't), then you've still got some movies on TV to choose from!

The Equalizer - FilmFour - 9pm

Denzel Washington stars as the quiet loner trying to live a peaceful life, but he is dragged into a violent, dangerous situation when he attempts to help a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) in his neighbourhood.

Saving Private Ryan - Sky One - 9pm

Steven Spielberg's much-loved WWII movie sees a group of soldiers, headed by Tom Hanks, sent across miles and miles of dangerous battlegrounds in order to find just one man (Matt Damon), so they can send him home to his mother after all of his brothers have been killed in the war.

50 First Dates - Comedy Central - 9pm

Adam Sandler falls in love with Drey Barrymore, but doesn't realise until they meet up again that she has active short-term amnesia, and every time they meet, it is like a first meeting for her. While the Wedding Singer reunion isn't as good as that rom-com, it is still plenty enjoyable.

Agnes Browne - RTE One - 11.30pm

Angelica Huston stars in this Irish romantic drama about a struggling widow with seven kids to support, who is facing severe financial debt, but could be about to turn her life around when she is invited to a Tom Jones concert by a handsome French man.

Young Adult - BBC One - 12.00am

Charlize Theron stars in this DARK comedy about an alcoholic novelist who decides it would be for the best if she suddenly returns to her home town and marries her high school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson), regardless of the fact that he now has a wife and child.

Army of Darkness: The Director's Cut - FilmFour - 1.50am

The finale to the horror trilogy goes full fantasy action when Ash (Bruce Campbell) is sent back in time to take on an entire horde of the undead.
