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.

Orange Thursday: Doctor Sleep (2019) and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

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

Yes, it’s Friday. Let’s not talk about it. Let’s talk about the two movies I’ve got for you instead:

  • Doctor Sleep (2019): An adaptation to Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining that also serves as a sequel to The Shining.
  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2018): A sequel to Godzilla (2014) that also serves as a sequel to Kong: Skull Island.

Both of them after the adverts and the trailers.

Orange Thursday: Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019) and Wonder Woman: Bloodlines (2019)

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

Looks like we made it. Or I thought so till today.

No, hang on. We really did. Look, it’s Thursday and here’s Orange Thursday.

A couple of odd ones this week. First up, we have a movie version of Zach Galifianakis celebrity chat show, Between Two Ferns. That’s the one where he sits with a guest between two ferns and insults them. How are they going to do a movie of that, hey?

And then, rolling like it’s 2018, it’s the return for one week – and one week only – of TMINE’s old feature, Weekly Wonder Woman, as we look at the release of new animated movie, Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, which tells the story of how Diana, princess of the Amazons, rescues a wounded pilot, Steve Trevor…

What do you mean you’ve already seen that like half a dozen times already? You have a point. Yet surprisingly, Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, is an origin story that should still be watched.

Both of those after the jump.

Orange Thursday: Stan & Ollie (2018)

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

Just the one movie this week, thanks to… stuff. But it’s a movie about movies, so maybe that counts as two movies?

Stan & Ollie (2018), as the title suggests, is about Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. But it’s set during their farewell tour of the UK in the 1950s, after they’d both retired from movies – or had they? There’s that Robin Hood movie they’ve both been working on. Will that revive their career or be their swansong? To some extent, it’s going to depend on the success of their tour… and it’s not looking good.
