    It's light hearted fun, nothing amazing and nothing terrible (bar a few), but it's not trying to be anything more.

    I enjoy it for what it is

    The moon knight one was a bit different, bit odd and confused in what it wants to be.

    The loki series was decent.

    The falcon and winter soldier thing was "alright" a bit much TBH too serious

    the hawkeye one was also similar. a bit of old ground

    Wandavision was a let down. It was weird crap but was setting us up for something. I thought wanda was well played and did good but then its a massive let down in dr strange movie that shes then flipped to ueer evil and is killed off. we get a mark ii captain marvel effort in there and then vision mark ii as well which have not appeared anywhere.

    all these "series" have in effect set up avengers movies mark II.


    None of the series really make a lot of sense unless theres a pay off at the end with a new set up for movie franchises.

    We've a new hawkeye. Falcon = captain america. bucky, moon knight, this new ms marvel lass in the muslim girl series, a captain marvel variant, a female thor coming soon and not sure what loki will be.

    They are very good at milking the **** out of it anyway.

    I didn't watch the last Ozark, it's a very dull show with some good moments.

    Its a mixed bag. the second one was pretty gash tbh. its baby groot at the start then an absolutely ****e movie thereafter

    the first one was "of its time" it started the marvel universe trend of having catch tunes from yesteryear. Its a bit of a romp and that so its not a bad movie. it has a 80s kind of style with nova core and is important in introing the whole infinity stone story.

    the gaurdians in the infinity wars were ****ing awful. they turn up with thor in the end as well and its the same bad jokes about who's in charge and how fat quill is getting.

    The boys have a deliberate policy of aping this music thing and playing very catch tunes while mayhem is ongoing in tribute.

    Gaurdians 3 is the last one and i for the life of me can't figure out why they need one more. thor and lady thor will answer where thor went after end game.

    I couldn't give a flying fook where the racoon, tree , green chick , dumb **** or girl with antennae went.......

    Best thing about Up In The Air is Vera Farmiga.

    Just finished watching 'Sherwood', thought it was very good although it is based on real events that happened not far away from me so I had a added interest

    Itv or BBC then, I'll stick to channel 4 for decent stuff in the UK.

    I assume a different one, whether based on a true event or just fiction who knows.

    Collateral on ITV - probably my favourite Tom Cruise film

    • Vincent : Max, six billion people on the planet, you're getting bent out of shape cause of one fat guy.

      Max : Well, who was he?

      Vincent : What do you care? Have you ever heard of Rwanda?

      Max : Yes, I know Rwanda.

      Vincent : Well, tens of thousands killed before sundown. Nobody's killed people that fast since Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Did you bat an eye, Max?

      Max : What?

      Vincent : Did you join Amnesty International, Oxfam, Save the Whales, Greenpeace, or something? No. I off one fat Angelino and you throw a hissy fit.

      Max : Man, I don't know any Rwandans.

      Vincent : You don't know the guy in the trunk, either.


    • Vincent : Look in the mirror. Paper towels, clean cab. Limo company some day. How much you got saved?

      Max : That ain't any of your business.

      Vincent : Someday? Someday my dream will come? One night you will wake up and discover it never happened. It's all turned around on you. It never will. Suddenly you are old. Didn't happen, and it never will, because you were never going to do it anyway. You'll push it into memory and then zone out in your barco lounger, being hypnotized by daytime TV for the rest of your life. Don't you talk to me about murder. All it ever took was a down payment on a Lincoln town car. That girl,you can't even call that girl. What the **** are you still doing driving a cab?

    My wife and kids like the Goldbergs. It's OK/inoffensive... But you see one episode youve seen them all.

    "One family member tries to help another and makes a mess and that other gets angry and then ends up apologizing."

    That's the damn plot of EVERY single episode and somehow that show has stayed on the air for a decade now. All they change is who upsets whom and have a different theme... But exact same plot.
