Now we'll have to watch Season 1 to catch up. Fortunately it is on P+ (and interestingly in 4K).

I'll have to check out the doc. And I've thought about doing a super marathon of Bond. I have the time. But it's a lot.

This was just added to Prime Video



I actually thought this was one of Neeson’s better recent movies.

I know the vast majority of you won’t care about this news, but Prime Video will start producing daily sports talk shows.

Cari Champion is probably the best known. She worked for ESPN a very long time.

They want to make Prime Video sports a yearly operation, not seasonal. So they got to create content. But there are so many sports talk shows that I don’t know if anyone has time for these.

Almost certainly a way for Amazon to promote their Thursday Night Prime NFL Game. When they say sports talk, I imagine it will be 90% football.

FYI, since appears a bit under the radar, but The Great Courses channel on Prime Video currently has a $1.99 per month for two months (it looks like the promo ends in a couple of days).

I've watched some of their courses, and IMO they can be interesting to watch, though it depends on if you like the topic and the quality of the lecturer.

I don't know why one would link to a twitter post that's basically just a link to the actual article, instead of just linking directly to the article, but whatever.
https://deadline.com/2023/04/robocop...ip-1235243057/

I do have a tangential nitpick with one part of the article:
The nearly 100-year-old studio has had multiple owners as well as financing partners for many of its best-known movies. This is also a studio that reportedly kept much of its archive hundreds of feet underground in an actual salt mine in Kansas that housed deleted scenes of movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and unmade scripts from the likes of Woody Allen, Samuel Beckett and even Stanley Kubrickís infamous Napoleon script.
I've seen this "in an actual MINE!" sentiment mentioned in other articles before, not just for MGM, and the reality is that nearly every major studio, as well as most major record companies, and basically anyone who wants to long-term archive important items and data, stores at least some of their stuff in old mines. For proper preservation, you want year-round constant and consistent low temperature and humidity, and mines basically have that as a built-in feature. I don't know if people are picturing people just throwing boxes into random tunnels, but the mines are converted into spaces with lighting, walls, shelving, etc, and aren't cramped but quite big. They're basically underground warehouses.

See this video about the Iron Mountain facility in PA (guess what type of mine it was?):

I found the news on Twitter today and Twitter posts are a little more eye popping with a headline and graphics than just some link with commentary by me that a lot here would ignore.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

A Robocop TV series could be good as an Amazon Prime series. Unlike that horrible syndicated show from years ago. They could make it a really gritty and violent sci-fi show. I'm sure it would be really expensive to make.

and a new Stargate is a no-brainer. That's dying for a new version.

I would love some new Stargate. I wonder if it will be a complete reboot, or if they'll try to keep it in continuity with the previous shows.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Amazon's Prime Video debuted a new feature called Dialogue Boost, which lets viewers increase the volume of dialogue relative to background music and effects, available on a limited selection of originals. According to Amazon, it initially built the feature for Prime Video customers who are hard of hearing but anyone can use the feature to suit their personal listening preferences.
https://variety.com/2023/digital/new...ms-1235585694/

This is a welcome feature. I've certainly had times when I've watched something with the music/effects made the dialogue very hard to hear, and while I don't think it was Amazon's original programing, hopefully, this kind of feature will be adopted/supported by others as well.
