Films to watch on Amazon Prime and Netflix

Recommended Posts

I thought as many of us are stuck indoors, it might be a good idea to share films available for those who subscribe to these two purveyors of entertainment.

The one thing that annoys me most about Prime is that there are a lot of good films on there, but they're difficult to find unless you know to search for them by name. IMDb lists are quite a good way to do that, btw.

Anyway I'm currently watching To End All Wars, with Robert Carlyle.

I don't currently use either. Which would you recommend I start with for Films and Drama Series?

Well I like them both. I subscribed to Prime so I'd get free deliveries, but then discovered it gave me access to lots of films and drama. However, as Dickson stated, Netflix is the online film provider.

Netflix. And start with Sunderland Till I Die. The Jack Ross series starts on April 1st which is fitting!

Unlike you to have a dig at a former St Mirren employee. Given his inexperience in the game he did pretty well at that clusterfcuk of a club taking them to Wembley twice. Looking at the table right now you can hardly say his successor has performed better can you?

Yep, absolutely. Parkinson had a slow start as manager, but the club is only 3 points off 2nd place. 

Clusterf**k of a club it may be, but Jack Ross had many international players to call on during his time as manager. He had players on the books for the season that were taking in five figure weekly salaries. He was given money to spend and wasted it on Will Grigg FFS! And the most telling factor about Ross was after he took the Hibs job he did a BBC interview boasting about his record at Sunderland because he only lost a handful of games. Quite clearly he didn't grasp at any point that Sunderland are a club with an annual turnover larger than that of Celtic playing at an all time low level for the club against sides where NINETEEN!!!! draws were simply never going to be good enough. 

The first Wembley final, the EPL Trophy, you talk about shows the true potential of the club. That day at Wembley drew the biggest football crowd (85,021) of that weekend anywhere in the world. Sunderland v Portsmouth in a diddy cup final! Yet they came off that final and won just 3 of the last 9 league matches and in the last four matches of the season they took just 2 points. 

It'll be very interesting to see what the issues were off the park. Many suspect that Ross had an over reliance on Aiden McGeady who played out the season with a broken toe. Some also claim McGeady was a disruptive force in the dressing room that Ross failed to deal with. I suspect that quite simply it was as I predicted it would be when he first went there - quite simply far too big a step up for a football manager of limited ability.      

I’d like to see the leagues finish now in EFL and that club you support have to endure another year in the lower leagues.

Not really a film, but if anyone's looking for content - try watching Yes Theory on Youtube. Some of their stuff is really entertaining

 

I've been following these guys on Facebook. Some really cool stuff.

The Bobby Robson documentary on Netflix is pretty good. I think One Night in Turin is still on Amazon Prime. It's about England at Italia 90, has a tremendous soundtrack and ends with them going out on penalties. What's not to like?

If you like motorsport, Drive to Survive on Netflix is essential viewing as is Uppity about Willy T Ribbs.

For stuff that isn't documentaries, Darkest Hour was good as was, surprisingly, Peter Rabbit 😂

Just about to watch The Platform on Netflix. The one saving grace about working from home is I don't need to be out of my bed until 9:25 am! Other than that, I absolutely despise it. Stay safe, folks!

Loved The Hunters on Prime, starring Al Pacino.

Very Tarantino like.

70s New York Nazi hunters

Have to agree about the Tarantino similarities. 
 

Good ending or a new series in the pipeline?

Ross pleaded with Douglas NOT to sign Grigg, and promised to get him half a dozen better players for that fee.
You are as I'll informed as off the ball.

Douglas panicked (familiar theme to his stewardship) at fan reaction to selling Maja when he was scoring goals.

Evidence of this?

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel on Prime is great.  Set in the late 50's - early 60's, it's all about an upper middle class NY Jewish housewife, who sort of by accident, discovers she has a talent for stand-up.  It's American (obviously) which means there is an element of "drama" to help the plot along but it's none the worse for it.  Highly recommended.

I love it but my other half can't get into it.
