Frankly most of these movies are not worth it to me to pay subscriber fees for. If I am interested I will rent it. Otherwise why subscribe? I don't subscribe to HBO etc. now, why would I subscribe to them? Its just a different flavor of the same. 3/4 of the time I wonder why I even pay for Netflix and once I get through watching some old comedy series thats going to be a real question. My kids sure don't watch them much. They don't even have TVs.

When Disney offers streaming for everything Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney movies...I’m in. No joke. If I can one-stop shop everything, that’s golden. My wife and I like Disney movies together, I like my Star Wars stuff, and I binge everything Marvel. That channel is a definite yes for us. And will likely replace Netflix.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

At the moment subscribing to all streaming services Netflix, Amazon, Disney wahtever, BBC whatever - will still be cheaper than Sky - I have all of them at the moment but seriously thinking baout dropping sky.

For streaming, it just needs a variety of content.

At the moment, I’m getting more out of Amazon Prime than Netflix. So when Disney’s Service launches, Netflix might just find itself one subscriber short. I want to see the MCU and Star Wars gubbins.

NowTV remains for the time being. That gives me more traditional telly, such as Game of Thrones and Walking Dead. It’s also one I can subscribed to seasonally.

I’m convinced streaming is the future. But how new players entering the game will affect it, I don’t know. It’s main advantage now is that it’s cheap. If I end up having six or seven separate subs going? At the current prices, said cheapness soon evaporates.


Each subscription also loses value every time some content creator pulls their stuff into their own service. Netflix is a shadow of its former glory, and Amazon Prime wants me to pay per movie rental like some kind of Blockbuster ghost in the machine. If Disney, Warner, CBS and Apple yank all of their stuff and each ask for a subscription rate for their modest collections that is only reasonable for a full library, I can't see customers paying. Just drop them all until they make it worth our time again.

PS: Your post seems to imply you are paying for Netflix. I am confused.

Last I heard, the Star Wars, Marvel and Disney stuff will be on Disney Plus while the rest of what Disney owns will be on Hulu. You'll have the privilege of paying for two separate subscription for access to the Disney library.

Currently subbed to Netflix, Amazon Prime, NowTV and WWE Network.

All works out cheaper than getting satellite tv. Plus there’s not as much weird guff I’m paying for but not watching (bizarre God Channels etc)

Depending on what Disney brings, I may drop Netflix in favour.

Don't have any of them, what with my job putting me offshore for weeks on end with nothing much to do with no internet it just makes more sense to just dive into the high seas experience completely, hoist the black flag and start slitting throats, errr, binge what I want to see off a hard drive.
Then when I'm home I get to spend time with the kids and the wife and indulge in other, more rewarding pastimes.

When you get older, you're taking a show break regardless. Gettin old aint for the soft!

EDIT: Can Doctor Strange time travel? If so why doesn't he go back in time with the crew and stop Thanos when he didn't have all the stones?

Agreed - Ageing is a terrible terrible thing,

Cos plot same reason he didn;t gate back to Earth for reinforcements or indeed use a portal to chop of Thanos' arm....

Thats why running rpgs is so hard, players do stuff that breaks the narrative

Two reasons.

#1, he was one of the victims of the 'snap'. So he's dead for the moment.

#2, he time-traveled via the Eye of (however you spell it), which turned out to be the Time Stone... and is now implanted in the Infinity Gauntlet and is in the posession of Thanos.

#3. They can't beat Thanos even if he doesn't have the stones. That's the essential takeaway from the timeline search.

I'm super hyped for it.

To the point I may even take a day off work to go see it on release.

Though pretty sure it's a Bank Holiday release, so no need to actually take leave!

Same here - it is the first movie I've ever bought advance tickets for this far in advance!

I was planning to see it on the following Tuesday. Looks like I can see it as early as 9:15 in the am. Cool.
Is there any reason I should see it in IMAX? I don't think I know what that even is.

Be aware its reportedly over three hours. IIRC but its really hard to get out of your seat for a pit stop in an Imax. I personally can't sit with my knees bent like that for more than an hour at a time.
