Mystery Road
Film

Orange Wednesday: Mystery Road (2013), Goldstone (2016) and The Name of the Rose (1986)

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

It’s been noticeable over the past few weeks that basically the only movies TMINE has been watching of late have been superhero movies. This is somewhat lamentable for someone who used to edit film magazines, including the magazine of the Cambridge Film Festival.

This cannot hold. However, since I’ve just downsized my Cinema Paradiso subscription, I’ve had a few pennies spare. And one of the advantages of running TMINE is that you learn about things like Amazon Prime Channels and the BFI.

BFI woe

Now those of you who’ve tried the BFI’s iOS app will know it is literally the worst. It’s just awful. It’s got a rating of 1.3 out 5 on the App Store. It’s barely even worth calling it an app. I mean look – this is what you get when you launch it.

This is not an app. This is a travesty

Which is why I never bothered to use it.

A better choice

But if you read TMINE frequently – like I do – you’ll know that if you have an Amazon Prime subscription, you can also subscribe to the BFI Player channel within Amazon Prime for a mere £4.99/month and use the Amazon Prime app (also available on Roku et al) to watch all the movies, including downloading them for a commute.

This is much better
This is much better – on iOS

Lovely. Plus it seems to have a better catalogue and to be cheaper than Mubi.

Anyway, when I’m not lowering my IQ watching non-stop superhero movies, I’ll be endeavouring to plough my way through a big chunk of classic movies on the BFI Player for Orange Wednesday – probably starting with everything Kurosawa, but you never know, I might diversify.

This week’s Orange Wednesday

But since this is ostensibly a TV blog, I thought I’d start with a double bill related to a TV show: Mystery Road (2013) and its sequel Goldstone (2016), which led to one of last year’s top TMINE TV shows, Mystery Road.

However, since I only reviewed one movie last week, I probably owe you all an extra review. And since I’ve been watching Il nome della rosa (The Name of the Rose) of late, I decided to delve into my archive of movies and rewatch the 1986 movie version.

All three of those TV-related films after the jump.

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

This week’s reviews

With everyone celebrating that Jesus dying (and coming back again) for the past few days, it’s been another quiet one for TMINE. But elsewhere, I did review ABC (US)’s Bless This Mess and Orange Wednesday took in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, so I’ve not been totally slacking.

The Bad Seed

What’s coming this week

A few new shows are coming up, and fingers crossed, I should finally be able to watch all of TVNZ 1’s The Bad Seed. Plus Orange Wednesday tomorrow will be taking in an Australian double-bill, Mystery Road and Goldstone, as well as a classic from the 80s, The Name of the Rose.

There’ll be other stuff, too.

The regulars

While there may not have been a huge number of new shows, I’ve not been slacking when it comes to the regulars. I’ve now caught up with episodes 2-4 of The Twilight Zone, so I’ll be looking at that, as well as all the other regulars: Au Service De La France, Doom Patrol, Game of Thrones, The Good Fight, Happy!, Il Miracolo (The Miracle), Il Nome della Rosa (The Name of the Rose), The Magicians, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, The Orville, Star Trek: Discovery, Warrior, What We Do In the Shadows and Whiskey Cavalier.

Brace yourselves, though, because not only are The Magicians, Il Miracolo and Star Trek: Discovery leaving that list because they’ve just had their season finales, I’m also purging no fewer than five of the others, on the general grounds they’re not much cop any more.

See you in a mo for a veritable TMINE Night of the Long Knives!
