    Season 5 of Avengers Assemble!, collectively titled "Black Panther's Quest". Pretty remarkable in that (a) most of the episodes feature only Black Panther and maybe one other Avenger (usually Cap, Hawkeye, or in one case, Kamala), and (b) no fewer than three named characters died on screen over the last 5-6 episodes. Easily the best season of the series. (Disney+)

    A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon: Very enjoyable film from Aardman Animation that uses many SF tropes to great effect after an alien crash-lands near Shaun's farm. "No sheep were probed during the making of this film." (Netflix)
     
    Time After Time: Mary Steenburgen falls in love with yet another time traveler, who is chasing after Jack the Ripper. (DVD)
     
    Tron: Legacy: Sequel to the 1982 movie, the visuals have been boosted, and the music's pretty good, too. There's not really a lot of plot, however. (Disney+)*
     
     
     
    *I own the Identity Disc collectible set, but it's on a high shelf, and streaming was much easier than retrieving it.

    A Knight's Tale
    A peasant squire who pretends to be a knight and enters jousting tournaments with his merry band of misfits along for the ride.  Fun, underrated story of medieval historical fantasy interspersed with modern rock/pop songs.

    mattingly got a reaction from Tywyll in Tell me about that one time your team defeated Dr. Destroyer/Mechanon/Takofanes/Etc.   
    It wasn't the "real" Mechanon, but the heroes traced Foxbat to an abandoned Mechanon backup factory. There were 32 Mechanons in various states of disrepair.
     
    A new guy had joined our team that session (or maybe the session before), and decided to wander off from the main group of heroes. He found the storage vault and ripped the door off with his superstrength. Inside were all the bots. They all blasted him at once, and killed him. Major negative BODY.
     
    Thankfully, the new guy was Frankenstein, and his other major power was regeneration. So the player wasn't scared off the campaign, and the character got to show off his full power suite.

    Yeah, David Niven was great as Bond.  Plus, you can't beat American Indian paratroopers dropping in with teepee-shaped parachutes and automatic bows-and-arrows.

    Ultraman...the original 1966 series. This show is not only great on its own merits...it was so good that it led to the decline of kaiju films in the 70's. (Why pay to see monsters in the cineplex when you can see them every week on TV for free.) The show was the brainchild of Eiji Tsuburaya, the SPFX master behind the classic monster films. As such, the cast, effects, and style are all very familiar to fans of the genre. Each episode is like a short Toho monster movie. Combine that with the wide variety of different styles and tones present in the 39 episodes of the series and you have a classic for the ages. It spawned a franchise that has continued to this day/
