Godzilla: King of the Monsters

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.

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

The only new acquisition without a premiere date is by Amazon, with Mexican production Narcos vs Zombies set to hit the Internet next year some time.

But for the premiere dates of Servant, Acht Tage (Eight Days) and Badehotellet (Seaside Hotel), join me after the jump

Mrs Fletcher
International TV

What have you been watching? Including Mrs Fletcher

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

For All Mankind
Apple TV+’s For All Mankind

This week’s reviews

Oops. Yes, I know WHYBW is supposed to be on Wednesdays and Orange Thursdays on Thursdays. I didn’t forget. I just had to work late yesterday. Can you imagine that?

Anyway, it’s here now and tomorrow will be a slightly belated Orange Thursday, I hope. More on that in a mo, though.

This week, however, TMINE did manage to review for your delight all of season two of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and everything new kid on the block Apple TV+ has given us so far of For All Mankind.

Doctor Sleep (2019)

What’s coming this week

I’m going to try to do Orange Thursday, tomorrow, work willing. Up on the cinema bill is Doctor Sleep (2019) plus whatever I decide to watch tonight.

We’re a bit light for new TV shows this week, however, which means I’ll be turning my viewing eye over the weekend to consider some of the streaming backlog: Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, See and Dickinson; Amazon’s Modern Love; the second seasons of Netflix’s The Hookup Plan and The Kominsky Method; and season one of Beau Séjour (Belgium: Éen; UK: Walter Presents). Maybe I’ll only manage one show, but let’s aim for two.

I might also give the BBC a call and see if they’ll let me preview Vienna Blood. That might be nice, hey? It doesn’t start until the 25th, though, so I might wait. There’s probably an embargo, too.

But brace yourselves, because less than two weeks after the arrival of Apple TV+, we’re going to see another giant wade into the TV streaming pool next Tuesday in the US: Disney is plussing itself, too, to give us Disney+. That’ll offer us the likes of Star Wars: The Mandalorian amongst other things.

I’ll be reviewing that, I suspect.

HBO’s Watchmen

The regulars

Of last night’s TV, I’ve only watched Treadstone, so let’s save this week’s Stumptown to next Wednesday. Otherwise, with Evil taking Halloween off, this week’s viewing queue is: Engrenages (Spiral), Mr InBetween, Mr Robot, Silicon Valley, Titans, Total Control, Treadstone and Watchmen. And last week’s Stumptown.

See you after the jump, together with a brief reviewette of HBO’s Mrs Fletcher.
