Amazon Prime Film/TV Series Recommendations

  • I looked up both Honey Boy and Manchester By The Sea and they were both shown at Sundance and then bought by Amazon for distribution. So it seems to be the same situation as a lot of Netflix films being marketed as Netflix Originals but they had nothing to do with making them.

    I was reading about something recently, can't remember what, but it was that Netflix bought distribution rights for it, but because BBC Films was involved in production they kept the British TV rights. So I'm guessing whatever deals Amazon had for these other films didn't give them full rights forever





  • I think they just bought the distribution rights off the back of Sundance. At the time it felt like their highest profile acquisition and was before they were creating their own original content.

    Actually, on further investigation it is there. They've just relisted it, and as an Amazon Original.

    The second item here is the one that's been in my Watchlist since it was first released.





  • Startup with Martin Freeman appears to be showing on both Prime and Netflix at the moment, first time I've seen that happen.





  • There's numerous shared titles if that's what you mean. There was recent buzz round Parks and Rec and The Office (US) added/readded to Netflix this year for instance both have been on Prime for donkeys (and still are). It would still be wise for the most part to assume if a popular series is coming to one streaming service it could well lapse if it is on another, quite a lot of the Fox stuff has left Prime and Netflix recently and may not return as frequently due to Disney Plus.





  • Watched Honest Thief starring Liam Neeson. Pretty standard, modern day Neeson film. Not much too it.

  • Watched Palm Springs last night, after spot-checking some very positive reviews. Romantic ground-hog day, 50 first dates, time-travel comedies are not generally my thing, but this was admittedly a lot of fun, with some genuine laughs. Struggling to find anything else worth watching on Prime.





  • Some great stuff on it...but the interface is a mess, I watched sicario again recently and the green knight.

    Justwatch is handy

  • If the 'Secrets in Their Eyes' film is the Argentinian original, this is terrific. (I didn't bother with the American remake).





  • It is the remake which I see is meant to be decent but does say it compares unfavourably when compared to the original.

  • I think the remake is meant to be fairly awful.





  • I've seen it and thought it was brilliant but I didn't know it was a remake not that it should make any difference.

  • Watched the Icelandic film 'Let Me Fall', a time shifting look on the spiral drug taking can have extracted from interviews of real life people and wrapped up in a lesbian romance.

    Obviously not a funhouse but a pretty decent drama, guy who directed it directed a few episodes of 'Trapped' and familar faces from that show pop up.

  • One word….chipindales …fairly sure i misspelled that……





  • Watched The Green Knight tonight. Enjoyed the first hour but it got a bit too trippy for me after that. Visually very impressive, think it was all filmed here too, but not for me on the whole.





  • I happened upon a movie called Black Medicine via the “customers also watched” which I took notice because it had Orla Brady’s name on it

    Did a quick GOOGLE to see if it was an Irish film I hadn’t heard of - Northern Ireland crime film - and I say the guy on the cars list than the traveller criminal from Love/Hate is it as a thug.

    He seems to play criminals a lot - not doing much the reputation of travelers
