Amazon Prime Film/TV Series Recommendations

    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.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,072 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985

    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).

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,072 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985

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

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,322 ✭✭✭ Man Vs ManUre

    I think the remake is meant to be fairly awful.

    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.

    Actually going through it myself at the mo for first time, not on Prime here though (can purchase separately on UK platform alright). Great show indeed.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,406 ✭✭✭ billyhead

    Has it aged well? Never seen it before myself.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,394 ✭✭✭✭ Charlie19

    It's excellent, I've recently rewatched and literally few through it. It's that good.

    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.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,566 ✭✭✭ Need a Username

    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
