Netflix's Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth and gta v treasure hunt tongva hills is the sort gta v treasure hunt tongva hills of film gta v treasure hunt tongva hills I gta v treasure hunt tongva hills wouldn't gta v treasure hunt tongva hills have watched before the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills lockdown. But our current situation gta v treasure hunt tongva hills has definitely changed gta v treasure hunt tongva hills my standards of the kind gta v treasure hunt tongva hills of TV I'd gta v treasure hunt tongva hills usually watch. That's why I've returned gta v treasure hunt tongva hills to Westworld season 2, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills for example, despite having previously given gta v treasure hunt tongva hills up on it after three episodes gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a couple of years ago. What else gta v treasure hunt tongva hills am I gta v treasure hunt tongva hills going to do? Read?

Extraction is produced gta v treasure hunt tongva hills by the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Russo brothers, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills directors of gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the last gta v treasure hunt tongva hills two Avengers movies. It's about gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a mercenary, Tyler gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Rake gta v treasure hunt tongva hills (yes, that gta v treasure hunt tongva hills is his name) who's sent in to retrieve the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills son of a drug lord, who's marked for gta v treasure hunt tongva hills death gta v treasure hunt tongva hills as gta v treasure hunt tongva hills part of a gta v treasure hunt tongva hills gang war. gta v treasure hunt tongva hills He has to protect the young gta v treasure hunt tongva hills man as the situation turns sour, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills with gta v treasure hunt tongva hills numerous factions gunning for Rake and his gta v treasure hunt tongva hills charge.

I thought it sounded a like another gta v treasure hunt tongva hills version gta v treasure hunt tongva hills of Tony Scott's Man gta v treasure hunt tongva hills on Fire, and to be honest, it is. Extraction gta v treasure hunt tongva hills is a very straightforward movie, with gta v treasure hunt tongva hills one extremely impressive tracking gta v treasure hunt tongva hills shot, excellent fight scenes and a gta v treasure hunt tongva hills brief appearance from Stranger gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Things' David Harbour, because why not? gta v treasure hunt tongva hills The quality of the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills action is no surprise, since director Sam gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Hargrave worked gta v treasure hunt tongva hills on gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the stunts for a number of gta v treasure hunt tongva hills MCU films. 

The excellent set gta v treasure hunt tongva hills pieces, though, are offset by mostly dull dialogue, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a story gta v treasure hunt tongva hills that's gta v treasure hunt tongva hills never surprising and a gta v treasure hunt tongva hills clichéd tortured protagonist in gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Rake. gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Hemsworth, an immediately affable presence, seems slightly too good gta v treasure hunt tongva hills for the film.

And yet, Extraction gta v treasure hunt tongva hills has arrived gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in a world where all the theaters gta v treasure hunt tongva hills are closed. gta v treasure hunt tongva hills If nothing gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in the world had changed, we'd gta v treasure hunt tongva hills all have seen No Time To Die by gta v treasure hunt tongva hills now. Black Widow's release would've gta v treasure hunt tongva hills been around the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills corner. Assuming it would've released at a similar time, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Extraction would've seemed like gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a footnote next to those movies. Now, in gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a landscape starved of gta v treasure hunt tongva hills cinema releases until at gta v treasure hunt tongva hills least gta v treasure hunt tongva hills July, it's the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills main event.

Why Extraction says a lot about our changing moviegoing habits

There gta v treasure hunt tongva hills is gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a sense that gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Extraction feels more expensive than you'd expect from gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a slightly-above-average action film, these days, leaving gta v treasure hunt tongva hills aside an outlier gta v treasure hunt tongva hills like the John Wick series, or a franchise gta v treasure hunt tongva hills like the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Fast and gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Furious gta v treasure hunt tongva hills movies. Landing a big gta v treasure hunt tongva hills star like Hemsworth helps make Extraction feel like gta v treasure hunt tongva hills more gta v treasure hunt tongva hills than gta v treasure hunt tongva hills elevated straight-to-DVD fare, and Netflix's gta v treasure hunt tongva hills model probably gta v treasure hunt tongva hills has gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a lot to do with it. 

An gta v treasure hunt tongva hills enlightening interview with the Russo brothers on gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Deadline gta v treasure hunt tongva hills reveals a lot about why the movie is gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a particularly good gta v treasure hunt tongva hills fit for gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the streaming gta v treasure hunt tongva hills service.

Extraction gta v treasure hunt tongva hills cost $65 million to make, and gta v treasure hunt tongva hills producer/screenwriter Joe Russo argues that's around double gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the budget they'd have landed if it had gta v treasure hunt tongva hills released in theaters, and been funded elsewhere. "This gta v treasure hunt tongva hills is not a $100 million movie, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills or above. That's the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills market that is getting squeezed right now, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the one gta v treasure hunt tongva hills under that gta v treasure hunt tongva hills level."

The gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Russos praise Netflix for gta v treasure hunt tongva hills supporting "certain gta v treasure hunt tongva hills segments gta v treasure hunt tongva hills of the market that used to be theatrical, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills but now we don’t think people will go gta v treasure hunt tongva hills to the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills theater for." While some mid-budget gta v treasure hunt tongva hills action movies still find a big audience, like John gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Wick, the box gta v treasure hunt tongva hills office these gta v treasure hunt tongva hills days is dominated gta v treasure hunt tongva hills by franchise gta v treasure hunt tongva hills films gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in a way that gta v treasure hunt tongva hills wasn't the case gta v treasure hunt tongva hills when, say, '90s blockbusters like Speed gta v treasure hunt tongva hills or gta v treasure hunt tongva hills The Fugitive gta v treasure hunt tongva hills were released. 

The gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Russos embrace gta v treasure hunt tongva hills this change in gta v treasure hunt tongva hills habits, though, because it's a good environment gta v treasure hunt tongva hills for different types of stories. "They gta v treasure hunt tongva hills prefer to enjoy gta v treasure hunt tongva hills certain gta v treasure hunt tongva hills films at home," Joe gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Russo says. "We've been preaching it for awhile, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills but the pandemic is gta v treasure hunt tongva hills going to supercharge this. [Moviegoing] is going to gta v treasure hunt tongva hills become so specifically event-oriented communal experiences, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills that's what is going to gta v treasure hunt tongva hills get people out gta v treasure hunt tongva hills of the house and into gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the theater. Everything else gta v treasure hunt tongva hills can gta v treasure hunt tongva hills have an incredible gta v treasure hunt tongva hills life gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in digital distribution. We should be grateful gta v treasure hunt tongva hills and gta v treasure hunt tongva hills thankful that exists, because we gta v treasure hunt tongva hills are gta v treasure hunt tongva hills seeing gta v treasure hunt tongva hills more dimension gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in our storytelling than gta v treasure hunt tongva hills we have in a decade."

Those "event-oriented" movies Russo gta v treasure hunt tongva hills refers to include movies like the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills brothers' own MCU pictures. 

He has gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a point – there is no universe gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in which I'd gta v treasure hunt tongva hills pay over £10 to see Extraction at my gta v treasure hunt tongva hills local cinema, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills but gta v treasure hunt tongva hills as something gta v treasure hunt tongva hills that just lands on Netflix, it really gta v treasure hunt tongva hills does have a place. The circumstances of its release, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills which no one could've predicted, just gta v treasure hunt tongva hills happened to make gta v treasure hunt tongva hills watching it seem that bit gta v treasure hunt tongva hills more appealing. Just after release, it gta v treasure hunt tongva hills was the number gta v treasure hunt tongva hills one most-watched film or show on Netflix US, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills and number two in the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills UK. 

Netflix has gta v treasure hunt tongva hills been making action movies like this gta v treasure hunt tongva hills for gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a while now, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills albeit with a gta v treasure hunt tongva hills sliding scale of gta v treasure hunt tongva hills budgets. Michael Bay's gta v treasure hunt tongva hills 6 Underground cost a lot more than gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Extraction, apparently around gta v treasure hunt tongva hills $150 million, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills and gta v treasure hunt tongva hills was watched by 83 million member households gta v treasure hunt tongva hills within four weeks. Bright, starring Will gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Smith, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills was gta v treasure hunt tongva hills hated by critics but was enormously popular. 

Using gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a metric other than the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills box office is clearly good for gta v treasure hunt tongva hills certain genres that aren't as gta v treasure hunt tongva hills big in theaters as they used to be. Obviously, though, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills it doesn't mean all the projects it makes gta v treasure hunt tongva hills are actually gta v treasure hunt tongva hills good. 

Extraction

Extraction isn't bad at all, especially if gta v treasure hunt tongva hills you're in the right mood for gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a gritty, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills unchallenging gta v treasure hunt tongva hills action film. And Netflix appears to have found more gta v treasure hunt tongva hills critical success with its prestige gta v treasure hunt tongva hills pictures than gta v treasure hunt tongva hills it has with its crowd-pleasing projects – gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Okja, The Irishman, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Marriage Story, The gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Two gta v treasure hunt tongva hills Popes gta v treasure hunt tongva hills and Roma are among gta v treasure hunt tongva hills its most acclaimed originals. 

If anything, the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills current situation highlights gta v treasure hunt tongva hills what Netflix's original movies gta v treasure hunt tongva hills are actually for. They're gta v treasure hunt tongva hills an alternative viewing gta v treasure hunt tongva hills experience to the theater, reflected in the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills type of product it gta v treasure hunt tongva hills makes. Their gta v treasure hunt tongva hills success isn't judged gta v treasure hunt tongva hills in gta v treasure hunt tongva hills dollars, it's based on gta v treasure hunt tongva hills attention. Extraction wasn't gta v treasure hunt tongva hills built with the current situation in mind gta v treasure hunt tongva hills – but, inadvertently, it highlights the gta v treasure hunt tongva hills advantages of the fact that gta v treasure hunt tongva hills we enjoy films gta v treasure hunt tongva hills from many more sources than just cinemas and home gta v treasure hunt tongva hills video gta v treasure hunt tongva hills now.

I'd take watching a gta v treasure hunt tongva hills new Bond movie over Extraction in literally gta v treasure hunt tongva hills every gta v treasure hunt tongva hills single scenario except gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the one we're gta v treasure hunt tongva hills living in right now, where it's simply gta v treasure hunt tongva hills not safe gta v treasure hunt tongva hills for cinemas to be open. gta v treasure hunt tongva hills As much as I miss gta v treasure hunt tongva hills the cinema, gta v treasure hunt tongva hills it's really cool to have gta v treasure hunt tongva hills something gta v treasure hunt tongva hills new gta v treasure hunt tongva hills to watch, even if it's gta v treasure hunt tongva hills a film gta v treasure hunt tongva hills I probably gta v treasure hunt tongva hills won't gta v treasure hunt tongva hills remember in a month's time.
