Missed opportunity, lads.

Here's the best of the rest on the box on this Friday 13 September...

Gremlins - TCM - 6.50pm

Don't feed after midnight.

Full Metal Jacket - TCM - 9pm

In which war is hell.

Die Another Day - ITV4 - 9pm

Easily the most bizarre James Bond movie in the entire canon.

Elysium - SyFy - 9pm

A mechanised Matt Damon takes the fight to the uber-rich - including Jodie Foster with a strange performance - in Neil Blomkamp's uneven sci-fi parable.

The Wolverine - E4 - 9pm

The precursor to the excellent Logan finds Wolverine in Japan, battling bad guys.

Chappie - RTÉ 2 - 10.30pm 

Neil Blomkamp again, staying within the realms of futuristic dystopia in this tale about an oppressed highly-intelligent robot reprogrammed to do good.

If you like it when Hugh Jackman chews the scenery, this one is for you.

Ryan Gosling lets his actions do the talking over a killer soundtrack in this violent, neon-coated cult hit.

Jagged Edge - RTÉ One - 11.50pm

Army of Darkness - Film 4 - 12.40am

The third Evil Dead movie, and the 'least best but still decent' one.
