Thats fine, but what about every other type of movie? What about a sweeping epic? A disaster film? Sci fi? It seems that all of these are covered only by superheros. It would just be nice to have some variety.
      ? There are lots of non superhero options for "big" movies. 2018 had jurrasic park, Halloween, annihilation, Mission impossible, a star is born, a quiet place, fantastic beasts, widows, tag, game night, hereditary, blackkkclansman, black mirror, the tale, blockers, upgrade, gringo oceans 8, sicario, the neg, first man, Holmes and Watson, creed 2.

      those are just bigger mainstream movies. Lots of options.

        I also thought they left it so there could be a second season the way it ended.

          Half the movies you listed are not big budget films. Of those that are not targeted to kids that had higher budgets is Annihilation, Widows, First Man. Even then none of these films had large budgets past $60 million.

          It is also worth noting that a large amount you listed are sequels, or remakes. You also put in some very small budget films.

            Yeah, I was thinking of things like, the summer of 1996, the blockbusters were Independance Day, Twister, I think Armageddon. Big splashy movies that didn't feature anyone in a tight suit.

              The first movie i looked at just now was MI, and had a budget of 178 million. Yes, I understand it would be a higher budget off that list, but definitely not targeted at kids. Few of the movies listed were, except for the couple comedies and arguably Halloween. Movies like Star Wars might be popular with kids, but they are definitely a wide market appeal movie.

              Who cares if it is a sequel or remake? A big movie is a big movie. Not sure how that is a factor. And ff course action movies have bigger budgets. You don't see a pile of non-action movies with 100 million dollar budgets. That is just common sense. Forrest Gump was one of the biggest movies of all time and was under 60 million. Spending big bucks doesn't instantly make a movie big, just like a small budget doesn't mean a movie can't be big.

              Superhero and like movies will continue getting big budgets as long as they are raking in massive dollars, as they clearly have a massive draw and at this time seem to care nominal risk.

                The best sci Fi is rarely a big expensive movie.

I've never read any of it, but man, a few episodes in and the creators of this content were clearly on some fabulous drugs.
                  Doom Patrol just started on Space last week. Not clear if itís going to Netflix imo. Titans went straight to Netflix after airing on ZdCUniverse.

                  • Very late to the party, but just finished Arrested Development. Hilarious...and the parallels between them and the Trumps is unreal.

                      Fair enough. I was just reading an article that stated likely Netflix. Cool to see it land somewhere that more people likely have access to, but surprised, as I believe the runtime of the episodes I watched was pushing 60 minutes. That makes it close to 90 on TV.

                      definitely a different looking superhero take. Brendan Fraser's dry humor is hilarious in it.

                        75 minutes on tv. Though I tend to pvr shows.

                          I haven't watched the first 3 seasons in a while and don't recall that comparison from those seasons, but yes in the Netflix seasons, they make it very obvious that they are making fun of the Trump family.

                          • Just finished the last season of Fargo and it has definitely moved into the top end of my all time favourite series. Quirky, strange, funny, violent and very memorable show. I think I'm going to try Bodyguard next.

                              I love the way there is just enough connection that you know all 4 stories are in the same universe, but there are separate standalone stories as well.
