What TV’s on at BAFTA in October? Including Cymru Awards: The Sessions and The Sister

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

It’s been a while since BAFTA organised any TV events – August, in fact – but with the Cymru awards just round the corner, we’ve got a big splurge of Welsh Q&As coming our way. Naturally, that includes a chat with one Mr Russell T Davies for the writers session, but Jonathan Pryce is lined up for the actors session. Ooh!

On top of that, we’ve also got a Q&A with the cast of ITV’s The Sister coming up, too, featuring the likes of Russell Tovey.

Full details after the jump.

Orange Thursday: Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) and Enola Holmes (2020)

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

Come on, studios! Release more movies! Honestly, it’s bad enough that they’re releasing so few at the moment, but pushing back the release dates of Black Widow et al, just because the US can’t get its coronavirus act together? That’s uncalled for.

All of which is a long-winded way of saying that Orange Thursday is back down to dregs again, with only two movies left up its sleeve. Fingers crossed, TMINE can watch some more by next week.

This week, then, the double bill is the unexpected third entry in the Bill & Ted franchise, Bill & Ted Face The Music (2020), and yet another of Sherlock Holmes’ unknown siblings turns up in Enola Holmes (2020).

See you after the ads and the trailers.

Orange Thursday: The Old Guard (2020) and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

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

Cinemas are open again, but there ain’t a lot on at the moment – although I’m going to see the new Bill and Ted this afternoon, so that’s something to look forward to for the next Orange Thursday. Until then, it’s a momentary fall back to the streaming services for Orange Thursday, as we take in two movies available on Netflix.

The first is another of Netflix’s attempts to create a movie franchise of its own, The Old Guard (2020), while the other is the latest, somewhat franchise-ruining entry in the Jurassic World series: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018).

See you after the very un-Netflix ads and the trailers.

Orange Thursday: Tenet (2020) and Venom (2018)

As life returns to almost normal again – despite the best efforts of young people – it’s time to switch off Covideodrome and once again take a trip to the movies for Orange Thursday.

This week, we’re starting with one very obvious choice: literally the only big movie released in the past couple of weeks – Tenet (2020).

But what to choose for movie two? I could regale you with reviews of Lovely Wife’s and my usual summer holiday viewing: Top Gun (1986) and My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002). But no.

Instead, let’s go with Venom (2018), a comic-book movie I somehow inexplicably missed at the cinema when it was released, but which is now free on Netflix.

See you after the facemask-adorned ads and the trailers.
