movies on tv 25 september

An unforgettable experience, for all the wrong reasons.

Can you believe we’re heading into the last week of September?

It only seems like yesterday that we were all being washed out of a field at Electric Picnic.

With spooky season only around the corner, it’s time to take it easy before we hit October hard.

And there’s no better way to relax than watch a film on the telly?

Here’s the top choices of movies on TV this Sunday (25 September).

Independence Day – E4 – 6.10pm

An excellent piece of propaganda.

Back to the Future – ITV2 – 6.40pm

One of the greatest films of all time. No, I’m not messing.

The Post – Film4 – 6.45pm

Steven Spielberg directs this Meryl Streep / Tom Hanks drama.

Cats (2019) – RTÉ Two – 9pm

Our top pick for tonight is… well, it sure is something.

In fairness, this film is incredibly entertaining if you enjoy watching classically trained actors (and Taylor Swift?) run around in CGI cat suits.

Otherwise it’s an assault of the senses that you will never forget. If you’ve never watched it, watch it tonight, and then never again.

The Exorcist: The Version You’ve Never Seen Before – Turner Classic Movies – 9pm

Unless of course, you have seen it, in which case this is flagrant false advertising.

Minority Report – Film4 – 9pm

Possibly Spielberg’s greatest film. We’re pretty big fans, in case you hadn’t noticed.

Face / Off – ITV4 – 10.25pm

John Travolta is Nicolas Cage, and Nicolas Cage is John Travolta. Wait, what?

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – BBC One – 10.30pm

“You’re the second best Exotic Marigold Hotel” – Mrs. Doyle.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco – BBC Two – 10.55pm

Joe Talbot’s powerful cinematic debut.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Channel 4 – 11pm

A five-page battle takes an hour to show in this film, if that gives you any idea of what this is like.
