That’s a pretty good reason... just bought it myself, same Suoerman 2 is still full price (and not DV / Atmos) cos they make a great double feature.
Only if it's the Richard Donner version of Superman II.

What I am currently watching and enjoying. Banker starts on 20th.

Good that Steve explained where we can watch the tv shows as sometimes this is missed and then i try to individually search every streaming service.

1:13 The Blues Brothers.
When I lived in the USA in the 90's, my Housemate owned one of the actual Pintos that the Nazis drove in the Film (Not the one that falls for miles of course!). Still in the original colour, though a tad faded by then. Still ran!

If you want cheering up? ITV2 next Thursday at 9:00 PM.
Contagion - 'When a deadly virus sweeps across the World...... Public panic reaches fever pitch.' Should have been on Sky News. They could have given their News Readers the night off.

Being a AV forum it should be noted the BBC has suspended filming of Eastenders (we all know it is really Cas's fav).

On the other hand, Big Brother Germany still goes on. The Contestants are fully isolated, so if the Virus suddenly turns really nasty, they would be all that's left of "Humanity"
😱😱😱😱😱😱
EDIT: I'm thinking, the "B" Arc, from Hitchhikers guide!!!

Amazing that they are planning to show that movie. I am betting they will decide against it.

Rather than movies, can I suggest TV series?

I will kick that off with Breaking Bad and The Sopranos. I think we may have more time on our hands than currently envisaged.

We have the full Box set of "Monk" here - that should last a while on its own
And also
Blackadder
24
House
Eureka
The Mentalist

Phil mentioned that eventually we will see Premier Movies directly via streaming services. Maybe due to COVID, you can see 3 Premiers on iTunes. Very expensive to rent at £15.99 each.

I have a massive pile of physical media to get through.
Sounds like a conversation at the local Zoo:-
Head Zookeeper: "Want to come for a Beer?"
Elephant House Zookeeper: "I'd love to, but I can't - I have a massive pile of physical media to get through."
:D

With regards to our streaming plans folks, I have just checked our broadband speed at 0750 hrs on Sunday morning and nothing in the house is using the internet. We have TalkTalk's 78 mb/s service which has always been good and very reliable. Today it's 60 mb/s for downloads and 10mb/s for uploads.
