too late .....this all started when certain people were furloughed and got bored…
Grease Live is currently ‘free’ on Netflix. Might post that as a ‘deal’. That’s a free deal too right?
Great film, was on BBC a.couple.of weeks ago.
Seriously...! There are 2,000 films to watch 'free' on Prime apparently...anyone with far too much time on their hands care to list?
Not voting cold as I never do but...!
Was on tv last week

Well, Darkest Hour is free on iplayer and was posted in the last week and this is a far better film imo and has limited time being free to watch.

At least they tried.
Some people may not have realised it was available.
Thank you good sir... Is this not the whole point of this site... Making members aware of deals that may interest them?? 🤷

It’s not ‘free’ tho is it. Your point about BBC iPlayer is invalid because you don’t need a paid subscription to access iPlayer, but with Prime you do.
K-k-k-k-Ken!

Yeah, sorry...must have caught me in an uncommonly grumpy hour...I put it down to having to put up with three hormonal/moody teenage daughters during lockdown!!

I didn't vote either way earlier but have now voted hot...on reflection, of those 2,000 films 90% are probably not worth watching so bringing those few that are I concede should be highlighted especially if there presence is limited!

I like Amazon Prime, especially as its free, well sort of! But it can be pain finding a decent film to watch, and I remember this when it first came out and my kids won't have seen it so thank you for the heads up.

In term of my earlier post, I'm hoping you'll forgive any negative comments.

You're point is invalid in regards to darkest hour as you need to pay a TV licence fee that's far in excess of the yearly Prime fee actually do whats your point??

Not quite as some of us aren't lucky enough to be furloughed and have to keep working to keep society ticking along during this crisis....

Last I recall of him was Last Vegas alongside Freeman, De Niro and Michael Douglas but that's going back a good few years ago

Hey, my home tutoring doesn't extend to my HUKD posts so no worries re spelling/grammar LOL!
Abbsolute non deal. Voted Cold.
As a prime member voted cold
I pay for the privilege and can use the search, yeah
Is this good for kids? I cant remember.
@Jason@Dan another one left in deals excuse is its a limited time deal, sorry but same as every other film on any other service, only last week the two films slipped through the net and became hottest deals of the day, Eventually one was deleted the other moved to discussions like all the others since then.

Hey, has anyone noticed that all on Netflix is free too?!
Voted cold for obvious reasons.

Last time I checked it was £7.99/month. I suppose if you use a free one month trial then technically it's free to watch along with the other 100s of films on there.
