They probably got removed by the license holder for the holidays, so that those prompted by the holidays to watch them would have to buy/rent it.

I'm really looking forward to Bone Tomahawk and Goodnight Mommy.
The review hasn't gone up yet but people should enjoy Bone Tomahawk if they like throwback Westerns. There's a tiny bit of horror mixed in that should excite younger audiences.

I noticed it said "TV, phone, or tablet"... I wonder if a streaming device like Roku qualifies.... Obviously a PC does not...

The official rules state "any compatible device including smart TVs, Fire TV, video game console, tablets and mobile devices, but excluding PCs and laptops. "

I would think a Roku would qualify, but if you have some other device you could play it safe and use that too.

In the Roku menu, there's an ad for the sweepstakes. So I'm sure Roku viewing qualifies.

The only thing on that list I can recommend without hesitation is Solomon Kane. Medieval fantasy fans should enjoy it, the film didn't receive the right kind of marketing here in the States.

I've enjoyed The Americans (and curse the studio for no BD treatment for S2). I also want to see Poldark as I usually enjoy Masterpiece.

They've added the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, but it's out of order and seems to be missing an episode.

It looks the episodes are "TV movie" versions, which combined two episodes into one, editing out the bookends of old Indy. Of those versions, it's missing "Chapter 20: Mystery of the Blues (Chicago, 1920)"

As for "out of order," the TV movies are basically re-ordered chronologically, instead of the original broadcast order, so it's hard to say what the "correct" order really is.
