Movies, Games and Videos (originally called Movies, Movies, Movies) was a television programme shown on ITV in the United Kingdom on Saturdays during the 1990s and early 2000s. The show reviewed new releases of movies, games, and videos, and was originally voiced by Steve Priestley. It was produced by production company Capricorn Programmes for London Weekend Television (later Yorkshire Television and also HTV) who syndicated the programme to a variety of countries. Local broadcasters were sent scripts and given the option to re-voice programme content if required.

Though initially successful, the show was gradually dropped by most regions until it was only being shown in Northern Ireland by the local contractor UTV.

It also included reviews of new game systems, video game creators and conventions/shows.[2][3][4]

A short-lived spin-off magazine was also produced.
