Orange Thursday: Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw (2019)

Every Thursday, TMINE reviews two movies, carefully avoiding infringing a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick

Orange Thursday is back but as it’s August, TMINE’s on a slightly reduced schedule to allow me time to catch up with all my TV viewing. That means there’ll only be one movie this week, but next week we’ll look at two Netflix movies: Point Blank and The Red Sea Diving Resort. Although there is an outside possibility I might postpone one of those in favour of Angel Has Fallen (2019). Let’s see how the Bank Holiday weekend fares.

This week, though, we’ll focus on this summer’s big blockbuster: Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. We can talk about which classic 80s movie it’s an homage to after this ‘ere trailer and the jump. See you in a mo.

What have you been watching? Including Crashing and Another Life

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week

As I revealed on Monday, since…

  • I’m just back from my holidays
  • I haven’t yet caught up with all the regulars in the TMINE viewing queue
  • I’m still operating my “if it starts in August, I (probably) won’t review it rule”

…this week’s WHYBW will be briefer than normal and largely thrown over to you, gentle reader (which is ostensibly the point of WHYBW anyway).

So please, let everyone know what you’ve been watching of late and whether it’s any good. If you’ve never commented here before and have been reading for a while, now would be a good time to introduce yourself!

Some reviews…

However, I have tried to watch a few new shows over the past month and while most of them are boxsets that I’ll be reviewing at some point in the next few weeks in their own entries, I thought I’d throw out a few words on both Netflix’s Another Life and Channel 4’s Crashing after the jump.

Just a note that although I’ve also just finishing watching the first episode of Amazon’s The Boys and I’ve not properly warmed to yet, I’ve just realised that the Superman-esque main superhero is played by Banshee‘s Antony Starr. Plus as Karl Urban’s cod-English accent is highly entertaining, I’m going to hold off reviewing that until I’ve a few more episodes under my belt, at least.

What TV’s on at the BFI in September 2019

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

After the traditional August lull, the BFI is back in full force for September, with a pretty epic line-up. There is a stonking season of Monty Python sessions, including a weekend airing every episode, as well as pre- and post-Python highlights such as Q5, Fawlty Towers and Rutland Weekend Television.

On top of that, there’s a showing of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Doctor Who story Mindwarp, complete with Q&A with Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, a preview of the forthcoming Temple with Mark Strong, and a preview of World on Fire. As if that weren’t enough, there’s a celebration of Not the Nine O’Clock News with John Lloyd and an episode of Porridge.

Wowzers. Full details after the jump. Be sure to comb through the details or you might miss something!
