fan service
 n.— «Now we come to The Matrix. Fans of this movie are a different lot. Not only do you have to satisfy their craving for gee-whiz visual effects, you also have to live up to their lofty expectations of what has been called “The Thinking Man’s Action Movie.” These are Star Wars fans all grown up; they’ve been betrayed by George Lucas who churned out prequels that were no more than fan service.» —“The Matrix reloads—Where’s that damn spoon” by Judith S. Juntilla BusinessWorld (Philippines) May 16, 2003. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
