A classic Al Pacino gangster thriller is among the movies on TV tonight


The middle of the week.


The movies on TV.

Here's how it looks on Wednesday, 20 October...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Film4 – 6.55pm

The (mostly) live-action 2014 reboot.

First Blood – ITV4 – 9pm

Vietnam veteran John Rambo escapes from remorseless lawmen and the hunt is on.

On Deadly Ground – Turner Classic Movies – 9pm


Steven Seagal is on deadly ground.

BlacKkKlansman – Film4 – 9pm

Spike Lee directs John David Washington in this simultaneously dramatic and comedic account of Ron Stallworth's attempts to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

Aquarium of the Dead – SyFy – 9pm

I mean, with a name like that it has to be... terrible, probably?


Carlito's Way – ITV4 – 11.05pm

Our main choice for you this evening.

Al Pacino's gangster tries to go straight following his release from prison only to become once again embroiled in a dangerous life of crime, largely thanks to Sean Penn's crooked lawyer.

Brian De Palma directs with his signature grime, Al Pacino acts his heart out.


Street Kings – TCM – 11.10pm

Corrupt cop Keanu Reeves goes up against even badder guys in one of David Ayer's many grim odes to gang violence in otherwise sunny Los Angeles.

Terminator: Genisys – Film4 – 11.40pm

Fun when the new T-1000 shows up. Not fun after that.


Point Blank – TCM – 1.25am

An outstanding film noir classic that's on in the dead of night, helpfully.

Army of Darkness – Film4 – 2.05am

The third Evil Dead film, which probably makes more sense at this time of night.

Sinister 2 – Channel 4 – 2.45am

Seriously, what are we doing with these times!
