    Much of the really cutting-edge drama these days is being done for television, while movies tend toward broadest-appeal films. It used to be the reverse, when television was the medium targeted for the masses. But as the range of channels and services has proliferated, television has more and more had to find niche markets appealing to specific tastes and expectations; whereas films, more and more obsessed with blockbuster box office, is aiming for as many targets as possible with every release.
     
    I'll just add that one person's junk is someone else's treasure, one size does not fit all, etc.

    Wow. That's so utterly different from my experience. When you include direct to streaming content, I think we're in a golden age of video content. There is so amazingly much good stuff out there. That's not to says that there isn't a lot of amazing stuff from the past, too, of course. It's just that there's more of it now. Is there a lot of crap being made? Sure. But that's always been true. Sturgeon's law and all. 
     
    The thing is, even the stuff that isn't all that great in a critical sense is often a lot of fun.

    It should have been made and released in the timeframe it was intended for.

    Not just another "female-led superhero blockbuster." As far as movie superheroines go, Black Widow was the only name in the game for years. Fans have been demanding she headline a movie at least since Avengers. Marvel/Disney dropped the ball by waiting so long, IMO mainly because we already know Natasha's future and ultimate fate. There's no real suspense surrounding her in this movie, making it harder even for her fans to get excited over it.
     
     
    My guess is that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle meets The African Queen will pretty much cover it.

    I'm probably up too late, but that was extra funny given that I got up, went downstairs to grab my reading glasses, then came back up here just to read that.

    The salesman at the furniture store told me, “This sofa will seat 5 people without any problems".
     
    I said, “Where the hell am I going to find 5 people without any problems?”
