There's no doubt that settling down into a marathon TV viewing session is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend an evening (or morning or afternoon), but it's also true that you can have too much of a good thing. If you want to know the ground rules for binge-watching without harming your health, we'll outline them below.

It's easy to forget that the current series of X-Men movies started with Matthew Vaughn. Six years ago, the Kick-Ass and Kingsman director made the reboot X-Men: First Class, and was getting ready to make its sequel before semi-mysteriously dropping out. And while Vaughn and others have previously dropped a few hints about that departure, new details make it even more disappointing.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle has the umbrella guns, missile-firing cars, and suit-wearing secret agents that you've been wanting to see. More surprisingly, the second movie to spring from the Kingsman/The Secret Service comic-book franchise makes a good case for what can be gained in adapting works across different mediums, like a heart beating underneath all that explosive cheesy popcorn.

Thanks to Marvel, superhero movies and post-credit scenes basically go hand in hand. Recently, Marvel has really played with that expectation, going super excessive with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and including a knowing wink in Spider-Man: Homecoming. DC movies, on the other hand, have never felt beholden to that; not incorporating scenes in the credits has been a way to stand apart from Marvel. But DC hasn't skipped them altogether.

Video: Mikey Neumann is pretty good at breaking down what it is that makes John Wick films so brilliant. Mikey did it with the first breakthrough film, and now takes on John Wick 2. At first watch it's easy to dismiss the second chapter in the franchise as a simple continuation of the first - but there's a lot more to it than that.

Oh, and the first three minutes of this video is a John Wick-themed rap extravaganza, which is pretty impressive considering Mikey had to learn how to talk again just a few months ago.
