    FOR GOD SAKES TELL US WHAT IS IN THE IMAGE FOR THIS ARTICLE FOR ONCE

  • 1wifwaf  

    *puts on pedantic hat* documentary is misspelled as 'Documetnary' for the two March 25 entries (Luci and Desi; Dear Mr. Brody)

    *takes off pedantic hat*

  • MIchaelBuss  

    Very good list. I didn't know this exists. So it helped to find right movies

  • moviestica  

    I didn't know amazon prime has a nice round collection of movies there are so many I couldn't easily find on other streaming websites. Most of these are still on my to watch list but I always seem to keep delaying...

  • behamilton  

    Love these lists. But how about when you hover over a title, instead of the cast, you got the plot summary? That would make your lists ever so much more useful. Everyone wants to know the plot, many don't care that much about the cast. Maybe poll the site users on this and see what they have to say.

  • Vycyous  

    Thank you for maintaining these lists. It's very helpful.

    If at all possible, there really needs to be a "Last Chance to Stream/Watch" section like there is with the Netflix and HBO Go lists.

  • Marginality  

    Best fresh comments and not trolls

  • Jungstir  

    Thanks Amazon streaming Mad Dogs I had to binge watch! It was well worth the ride, hoping for more episodes.

  • GustavoWoltmann  

    Thanks for the info, definitely have to watch those

    Gleason (2016 movie) coming December 29th http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=176060&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=2230901
