Netflix? Completed it, mate.

If you're in for the weekend and wondering what you might watch, don't waste hours scrolling aimlessly on your streaming service.

Instead, grab the remote and settle down in front of the telly - here's the best of what the channels have to offer tonight and tomorrow evening.

 

Saturday 25 July

The Post

See Streep and Hanks act their socks off in this compelling, Spielberg-directed political thriller.

Channel 4, 9:15pm

 

Quantum of Solace

Daniel Craig's second outing as Bond may not quite hit the heights of Casino Royale but ticks the boxes when it comes to action and marks the franchise's turn towards gritty realism.

RTE One, 9:40pm

 

Blades of Glory

Stupid? Maybe. Hilarious? Definitely. Will Ferrell and John Heder send up the sports movie genre with Amy Poehler, Will Arnett and Craig T. Nelson in supporting roles.

Sunday 26 July

Legally Blonde

Years before the social media-driven wave of feminism of the 2010s, Elle Woods taught us that you don't have to burn your bra to get ahead in a man's world.

9pm, RTE 2

 

Goat

This 2016 drama may be a hard watch at times but offers a visceral look at toxic masculinity in American college fraternities.

11:40, Film 4

 

Still Alice

If you're up late , make sure to stick this on. Julianne Moore is brilliant as an academic and mother diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease.
