If you like cheesy b-movies with some boobs, this fills the bill. I watched it a year or two ago on Netflix.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

This is a little odd, but I'll see if this ever happened to someone else. I have a Samsung 4K 8000 series. Suddenly, my Prime Video is only showing up in "Full Screen" only, -that is, all the letter-boxed films are showing up in full screen (squashed) and 4:3 is window-boxed (black frame on all sides). Netflix seems just fine, this seems to be just Prime. Even my Roku shows Prime properly (it just doesn't output to 4K like my Samsung). I've fiddled with every setting I can, but it stays the same.

Yeah same thing happened when I was trying to watch IT . It was displayed in some sort of zoomed-in, full screen aspect ratio.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Have there always been ads on this? We had Prime a while back but let it expire and we’re doing the free trial thing for a while and there’s an ad before everything. Is this new?

I get "ads" for other Prime TV/Movies, but I don't know when it started.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I got ads for the first time ever during a movie-Something Beneath.

I have gotten them before movies but never during a movie.

At least you can fast-forward thru them... for now.

It looks like this is Amazon's free movies with ads package(Now TV) and it got mixed in with Amazon Prime(it's also known as ImDb. Freedive). ImDb Freedive is built in Amazon Fire TV.
