Orange Thursday: Knives Out (2019) and Angel Has Fallen (2019)

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

And it’s a real mix of genres for Orange Thursday this week

  • Knives Out (2019) – it’s Agatha Christie territory, as a noted author is murdered and only an eccentric detective can work out
  • Angel Has Fallen (2019) – Gerard Butler saves another president’s life, only to be suspected of having tried to kill him, resulting in urban warfare

See you after the ads and the trailers.

Orange Thursday: Jojo Rabbit (2019) and Yesterday (2019)

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

It’s two surprisingly recent movies getting the rundown in Orange Thursday this week:

  • Jojo Rabbit (2019) – in which we follow a young Nazi and his imaginary friend Hitler as they discover that jews don’t have scales and horns
  • Yesterday (2019) – in which we follow a young musician into a world in which The Beatles do not exist but Ed Sheeran is their Salieri.

Crazy, both of them, huh?

See you after the ads and the trailers.

Orange Thursday: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) and 6 Underground (2019)

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

Hello! Welcome to Orange Thursday, the absolutely definitely every Thursday movie review slot on TMINE. I’ve been watching a job-lot of Cinema Paradiso DVDs over Christmas, as well as one or two movies at the cinema, so work-willing, I should be able to regale y’all with a double-bill of movie reviews every Thursday for the next month at least, maybe more, without having to watch even one more movie. And I’m going to see Jo Jo Rabbit on Saturday, so clearly I will.

This week, we’ve got one cinema movie and one streaming movie for you to enjoy:

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) – the last of the nine Star Wars movies
  • 6 Underground (2019) – Netflix’s attempt to have an action movie franchise, starring Ryan Reynolds as a kick-arse tech billionaire.

See you after the ads and the trailers.

Orange Thursday: Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) and The Philadelphia Experiment (2012)

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

It’s been nearly a month since the previous Orange Thursday, which is a bit pathetic but is testament to my general busyness. Anyway, it’s back… on Wednesday. This is largely because there was a bumper crop of new shows this week to glance at and since I haven’t had the chance to watch them all yet, I’ll be watching them tonight and covering them tomorrow in WHYBW. That means Orange Thursday has to come on a Wednesday.

This week’s double-bill is:

Orange Thursday: The Laundromat (2019)

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

Only one movie for you this week, as I didn’t manage to watch a second one last night after all. But it’s an all-star affair directed by Steven Soderbergh, written by Scott Z Burns and featuring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Jeffrey Wright, Robert Patrick, David Schwimmer, Rosalind Chao and Sharon Stone.

It’s The Laundromat (2019), it’s all about tax avoidance and the Panama Papers, and it’s going to be reviewed after the adverts and the trailer.
