Tobar’s superb The Marvel Cinematic Universe thread in the Media Section of the site is well worth a visit.

as well as Tobar’s annual ‘The Scifi Films and Television of’… threads in the Media Section too, which may be of interest:-

2019 : 2018 : 2017 : 2016 : 2015 : 2014 : 2013

and there are numerous threads related to Disney and Pixar content in the Media Section too.

Not too sure if there are any National Geographic threads in there… 😉

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I’m a bit put off with everything going streaming so that I have to chase down content across platforms, devices, and services, but I understand it’s the way of the future.

That said, I’ll be giving this one a test drive for The Mandalorian and the Rogue One prequel. I’m also interested in the NatGeo content and some Disney classics. Beyond that, I’m not a Marvel guy or a Simpsons watcher, so those are of no interest.

The price, at least at this rollout stage, is very fair. I expect it to go up somewhat quickly after that.

I’m excited and I most certainly will be checking this out.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.
