Terminator: Dark Fate is on NowTV. It's underrated IMO and worth a watch. Probably the best terminator film since T2, although to be honest I kinda enjoyed all the sequels.

The Gentlemen is on Prime. It's Richie playing his greatest hits but he knows what his strengths are.

The Gentleman is a great film
Saw it in cinema, wasn’t too sure for first few minutes but before long was loving it. And first time in years that whole cinema laughed out loud, lots.

Ideal Friday / Saturday night film

Dark Fate is essentially a T2 remake. Which is no bad thing IMO.

Not saying any of the sequels were as good as T2, not much is to be fair. But I've not seen a Terminator film that wasn't worth watching. I've enjoyed them all, also.

I wouldn't say Dark Fate is a T2 remake, it is pretty much a direct sequel to T2 along with a soft reboot.

The Gentleman is excellent, was the last film I saw at the cinema before lockdown. Definitely worth a watch if you like Guy Ritchie gangster comedy type movies.

Was this an error ? (maybe quality control )
Yeah, this was weird. They added 1917, too, and then hours later it mysteriously vanished. No idea what happened.

Dark Fate is underrated. It's very re-watchable.

Oh yeah, so they did. Until you posted that I didn't realise it had gone. It was certainly there for a few days, they even promoted it on the banner at the top!

Surely they're not just getting these titles for super short windows? Who sees something has been added to a streaming service and rushes to then watch it? I imagine most are like me, stick it on the "To Watch" list and come back to it in the next few weeks/months.

Amazon Prime and their business decisions for Prime Movies often feels like they're just making it up as they go along.

As it's Amazon, I would speculate they stick it on for a day or so, wait for you to want to watch it and assume you'll pay £4.49 for a rental.

Same, I added it to my list to watch last weekend, and then it just vanished. The new Charlie's Angles was also strange as they added it to Prime, it vanished, and then appeared as NOWTV's new premier that same week.

I watched the first one. It's OK I guess. Haven't felt compelled to watch any more.

The caricatured British just jars a bit for me.

Could it be a licensing issue, Charlie's angels was only recently added to nowtv. They might have a period of exclusivity

There is nothing you will not have seen before. There are no twists or turns that you will not see coming but itís just a real sweet show.

The character of Ted is impossible not to like. The world actually needs more Teds.

Itís a good nice show

Yeah I think that's what I like no matter what happens Ted is just nice and charming and doesn't let any negativity bring him down.

We need more Ted Lasso's in the world right now.

Animated Jurassic World spin-off Camp Creataceous is worth a look if you're a fan of the movies.

Set at the same time as the first JW film, it starts off quite kiddie-friendly, with irritating characters, poop jokes & cute baby dinos, but then the Indominus Rex escapes & people start getting eaten. Cue lots of running & screaming...

I imagine it'll get complaints from parents watching it with their younguns for how dark it gets at times, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
