Here are the 8 best movies on TV this Tuesday


Yes, it's the first of October and thus it's spooky season.

Will the movie gods follow suit and screen nothing but horror films?

No. No, they won't.

But let's see what they have in store for us on this Tuesday 1 October, yes?

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York - Film 4 - 6.40pm

Clearly a Christmas film, but Kevin's elaborate murderous intentions did kind of pave the way for the Saw franchise.

Back to the Future - E4 - 8pm

Vintage sci-fi fun.

The Florida Project - Film 4 - 9pm

Beautifully realised indie about a young girl living in a motel near Walt Disney World and the contrasting lives thereof, with a brilliant turn from Willem Dafoe.

Serenity - SyFy - 9pm

Joss Whedon gives short-lived cult TV favourite Firefly a fitting big screen send-off.

Payback - TCM - 9pm

Mel Gibson is left for dead, only to fight his way back through the criminal underworld in this stylish, violent turn-of-the-century thriller.

The 40-year-old Virgin - ITV2 - 9pm

As played with a mix of wackiness and empathy by Steve Carrell.

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story - Film 4 - 11.15pm

Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge.

Secretary - Film 4 - 1.05am

In which Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader redefine an office relationship.
