Here's our pick of the best movies on the telly Friday 29th December

We're in the time period where we have no idea what date it is or even what day of the week it is.

But it doesn't really matter because our main priority is figuring out what to binge watch.

What's on?

The House with a Clock in its Walls (2018), RTÉ2 AT 7:05pm

Ten-year-old Lewis goes to live with his oddball uncle in a creaky old house that contains a mysterious `tick tock' noise.

He soon learns that Uncle Jonathan and his feisty neighbour, Mrs Zimmerman, are powerful practitioners of the magic arts.

When Lewis accidentally awakens the dead, the town's sleepy facade suddenly springs to life, revealing a secret and dangerous world of witches, warlocks and deadly curses.

Castaway, Channel4 at 8pm

Obsessively punctual FedEx executive Chuck Noland is en route to an assignment in Malaysia when his plane crashes over the Pacific Ocean during a storm.

The sole survivor of the flight, Chuck washes ashore on a deserted island.

When his efforts to sail away and contact help fail, Chuck learns how to survive on the island, where he remains for years, accompanied by only his handmade volleyball friend, Wilson.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), TG4 at 10:20pm

The true story of fast-draws and wild rides, battles with posses, train and bank robberies, a torrid love affair and a new lease on outlaw life in far away Bolivia.

It is also a character study of a remarkable friendship between Butch - possibly the most likeable outlaw in frontier history - and his closest associate, the fabled, ever-dangerous Sundance Kid.
