movies on tv 12 december

Two more weeks until Christmas…

Not to put the pressure on, just in case you haven’t bought any presents yet.

But forget all that, relax and settle in for a great movie tonight.

Here’s the best of what’s on telly on Sunday.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – E4 – 5.50pm

Michael Bay produced this, so it has everything you would expect. Lots of CGI, insane action, and also Megan Fox is there.

The Karate Kid – Film 4 – 6.35pm

Where it all began for Cobra Kai and Daniel-san. Wax on, wax off…

The Campaign – RTÉ2 – 9pm

When this comedy first came out, it seemed too ridiculous that politicians would act this way. Now? It cuts a bit too close to home.

Kevin and Perry Go Large – Comedy Central – 9pm

Harry Enfield stars in this gross-out comedy taking on rave culture in the 2000’s.

Fast Five – ITV2 – 9pm

The film that arguably cemented the Fast and Furious franchise as much-see cinema (for better or for worse).

Full Metal Jacket – Turner Classic Movies – 9pm

Stanley Kubrick directs this intense Vietnam war film.

The Shape of Water – Channel 4 – 10.55pm

Cleaner meets fishman. Cleaner and fishman fall in love. It’s a tale as old as time…

Total Recall – ITV4 – 11.55pm

Our top pick for tonight is one of Schwarzenegger’s most insane action films, and it’s well worth a watch.

It’s chock full of action, special effects, and a triple breasted woman like the one Busted sang about.

A spectacle in every sense of the word, give this one a go if you haven’t before.
