A thought.
The more the online streaming market diversifies the less of an online streaming market there will be,.
Paying one £8 subscription for access a convenient site with everything- great. Lots of people will do this.
But having to subscribe to several different sites? Even if the money was the same (which it won't be, it'll be 8x whatever) then its not worth the convenience. People will go back to torrents.

Netflix does run Marvel movies from time to time.
the new ones won't be there, after Disney+.

TWD, are they the newest episodes or are they running 1-2 season back like Showcase for some other shows?

That movie was fantasically fun and my favorite of the year.

Yeah, Fallout was insane fun. Best popcorn flick of the year.

"Stupid silly Celed, so you thought we we're done? Here's another insane over-the-top action scene". That was my feeling throughout.

How many movies are there in the MI franchise now? I've only ever watched the first and thought it was ok-ish.

That sounds really boring. Literally.

Movies where the goal seems to be to cram as much over the top action scenes into a couple hours as possible bore me to tears after about the second one.

If Over-the-top action scenes were all it took to make a movie great, Die Hard 5 would be a classic.

I know, but they make it work. The scenes are creative and thrilling, not just CGI and bullet onslaughts. I can appreciate action if it's done well. Fury Road was rather thin in the plot department and it was just genius throughout.

There's also a healthy dosage of spy Scooby Doo twists, but those did feel a bit stale.

That motorcycle chase is one of the best chase scenes I've ever seen. I think Berkut might think of this is a Transformer-like movie which is the complete opposite in the over-the-top action genre.

Anyone that can watch the MI: Fallout's bathroom fight and be bored isn't human.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.
