Every Thursday, TMINE reviews two movies, carefully avoiding infringing a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick
It’s Thursday so it’s time to go to the movies with TMINE. Once again, I’ve managed to maintain discipline and go superhero free. I’ve even watched one – perhaps even two – modern classics of very different genres. However, in common with last week, one of them (unexpectedly, this time) features Keanu Reeves, so is that a new theme?
Always Be My Maybe (2019): Randall Park and Ali Wong grow up next door to one another but their lives take very different paths. Will they realise they’re made for each other? And will Park punch Keanu Reeves in the process?
First Man (2018): Ryan Gosling takes us to the moon and back in this partial biopic of Neil Armstrong.
…but also not great. Those with long enough memories will recall that I said last week that “Good Omens is available on Amazon from Friday, so we’ll definitely be catching that for Boxset Monday”. Except it wasn’t. So much for definitely, hey?
To be fair, we’ve watched five out of six episodes, so it’s just a case of finding the time to watch the sixth episode in between the latest episodes of Masterchef Australia and Love Island. It’ll happen, hopefully tonight or tomorrow, but before the weekend, anyway. Just not this Monday – my time machine’s broken.
Also coming your way – at some point, he says, avoiding any definite statements – are American Princess (US: Lifetime) and at least one episode but maybe all of NOS4A2 (US/UK: AMC). And Orange Thursday will definitely include Always Be My Maybe (2019) at the very least.
I’ve still not watched Catch-22 or What/If. Soz. But maybe this weekend, hey?
The regulars list continues to dwindle. After the jump, I’ll be looking at Harrow, Mr Black, and the penultimate episode this season of Warrior, for sure. I’ll also be covering the final two episodes of The Hot Zone, as well as the season finales (Ed: What? Already?) of The Twilight Zone and What We Do In the Shadows. And I did a rapid trawl through the remainder of The Society. But that’s your lot – summer, hey?
