As winter sets in on our ninth month of staying at home due to the pandemic, one starts to wonder what to do next while staying isolated and safe. One of the safest activities is to binge-watch movies. However, the expense of some of these streaming services is approaching cable company rates. It is ridiculous.
However, it looks like MGM has opened up their YouTube paywall with an impressive array of James Bond films. This may be a teaser lead into the next Bond film due out in April 2021; No Time To Die. Unfortunately, the entertainment site Engadget is reporting that that film may be delayed in its release due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.
