Triple Frontier
Film reviews

Orange Wednesday: Triple Frontier (2019), Hotel Artemis (2018) and Special Correspondents (2016)

Every Wednesday, TMINE reviews two movies and infringes a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick

Ah, well. It was good while it lasted, but I’ve failed you this week, gentle reader. Despite the headline, I only managed to watch one full movie this week. I tried to watch a second one, but it was so, so bad, so I gave up. So I found a replacement… and it was so, so bad, so I gave up. And then I ran out of time.

Can you guess which I made it all the way through of these:

  • Triple Frontier (2019) – a group of ex-special forces soldiers steal a stash of cash from a Colombian drug dealer, but their escape doesn’t quite go according to plan
  • Hotel Artemis (2018) – Jodie Foster runs a hotel-cum-hospital for criminals in a near dystopian future
  • Special Correspondents (2016) – Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana create fake news

Tricky, isn’t it? I blame myself.

Orange Wednesday: Captain Marvel (2019) and Mile 22 (2018)

Every Wednesday, TMINE reviews two movies and infringes a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick

Two recent movies for Orange Wednesday this week, one of which only got released this week – yes, I’ve been to the cinema!

  • Captain Marvel (2019): Marvel’s first superheroine movie
  • Mile 22 (2018): Mark Wahlberg and his team of special forces spies has to get Iko Uwais 22 miles to an airport

Both of those after the jump.

Peppermint (2018)
Film reviews

Orange Wednesday: Peppermint (2018) and Sanjuro (1962)

Every Wednesday, TMINE reviews two movies and infringes a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick

One of the nice things about doing TMINE is that it gives me a chance to watch things that either I’d never have known about without research or I’d never have got round to watching. Certain features of the blog have, in fact, specifically been geared up to this – Today’s Joanna Page, for example, may have seemed little more than an excuse to watch lots of Joanna Page, but it did enable me to watch some really quite good things I’d never probably have bothered with: Making Waves, David CopperfieldThe Cazalets, To The Ends of the Earth, to name but a few.

So it is with Orange Wednesday, which is forcing me to watch two movies a week. This is harder than it sounds, and not just because I’m lazy and have a lot of TV to watch as well. It’s because, actually, there aren’t that many good new movies out each week, even with Netflix getting in on the act. As a result, I’m having to hunt them out.

Of course, the downside is it also means I’m also watching some rubbish movies I would never have touched with a bargepole, otherwise.

Guess which categories this week’s Orange Wednesday movies fall into:

  • Peppermint (2018) – bank teller Jennifer Garner’s family is murdered, so she goes to seek her revenge
  • Sanjuro (1962) – Akira Kurosawa’s sequel to Yojimbo, in which ronin Toshiro Mifune helps a hapless bunch of clansmen deal with a corrupt local superintendent
