In that case, I’d say mark it as spam so they’re automatically deleted.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

The emails should come from different addresses, like [email protected], [email protected], [email protected].

Check and see what address it’s from. It’s it’s unimportant, spam it. Or if there’s some common phrasing in the subject line (“new episodes” or whatever) block that phrase.

Where the boys are (1984)

is now on Amazon Prime. I've been wanting to see this for 30+ years. I remember seeing the VHS as a kid on shelves at the video store, but it was Rated R, so that was a no go.

Now I'm watching it now on Prime. Sure it's cheesy as hell and tame by today's standards, but it's nice seeing a very young Lynn Holly Johnson and Lisa Hartman in their 80's hair and bikinis.

The only thing that makes this Rated R is a few minor boob shots. No sex or nudity.

Only drawback it's in 4:3 and SD. But, it's certainly watchable.

Yes, I really liked this one also! Regarding the fact that Amazon is streaming this in 4:3, there is a widescreen version on YouTube that interestingly runs about 4 minutes longer that the Amazon version (94 minutes vs. 90 minutes) although the YT version isn't quite as sharp and pleasing to the eye. I watched both versions almost back-to-back, and I couldn't spot any differences between the two. IMDb says 94 minutes is the correct running time. Perhaps Amazon's version is sped up or something.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

so why does one service have the HD version and the other service have only SD when they are UV/MA compatible?

I just bought Papillon (73 version of course) on AP in HD. figured it wasn't MA and wouldn't transfer since Vudu was only SD. didn't bother checking the bottom. but, it is and transferred so i own the SD copy on Vudu and HD on AP.

how come they both don't have this in HD? i mean i'm glad i have both, but Vudu interface for me is just more user friendly and don't love the AP app. so while tempted to watch in Vudu, i don't see why i would do that when better quality on AP...

It's what they're given by the studios.

but, is there a reason one gets the better over the other, especially since the price for both is the same?

Probably, but they haven’t shared a reason with the public.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Papillon (1973) is both MA and UV according to Vudu:
https://www.vudu.com/content/movies/.../Papillon/9302

Amazon doesn't indicate whether a title is MA eligible anywhere on their site.

There's a thread on the Vudu forums of titles that are only SD on Vudu but HD elsewhere. Papillon (1973) is already on the list.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Not really. What benefit do they have to say something like “Univerersal gave us a bad transfer because we rank their releases lower in search results than WB titles,” or whatever the reasoning is?

It’s too inside baseball for most buyers and could be potentially damaging to existing relationships.

amazon.com/MoviesAnywhereTitles should provide all MA eligible titles.
