A Simple Favor review

A Simple Favor is a movie from 2018 starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. It was directed by Paul Feig, and people had high expectations for the movie before watching it. Did they end up disappointed, or was the movie just as good (or even better) than people expected?

I came to the cinema with great expectations as I got ready to watch A Simple Favor. It sounded really promising, and I expected an exciting movie that would be packed with intensity, smart movies, and a tricky plot. Well, the movie kind of gave all of this to me, but still, I left the cinema quite disappointed. And, I am not the only one who felt that way.

A Simple Favor feedback in general

Based on more than 100,000 votes on IMDb, the movie currently has a rating of 6.8. That is an okay rating, but not at all an especially good one.

The Rotten Tomatoes audience has been fairly nicer to the movie, and it has an 85% critics score, while the audience score is 73%. Now, these scores might give you a hint about the quality of a movie, but I have often discovered that I don’t agree with such ratings at all, so let me share with you my thought about the movie!

My thoughts on A Simple Favor (2018)

A few words about the story (no spoilers)

Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) plays the role of a naive mother who meets up with Blake (Emily Nelson). The latter is a rich person, she has everything, she has style, she has a nice house, and everything seems to be extremely perfect. Stephanie enjoys the relationship, but one day Blake just disappears. What is going on? Stephanie is out on a quest to discover what has happened, and together with the husband of Blake (whom she somehow likes a bit too much), they try to understand what is going on.

Great potential without the power to reach its destiny

When I went to the cinema to watch A Simple Favor, I had watched another movie a few weeks earlier named Searching. It was a kind-of similar movie, and the plot reminded me of A Simple Favor. The only difference was that Searching was more of a B-movie with no big names, while A Simple Favor has Anna Kendrick and a bigger Hollywood budget.

But, as I left the cinema, I knew for sure that I preferred Searching to A Simple Favor. It is hard to put words on what I didn’t like about A Simple Favor, but it just felt as if it never managed to come through. It had such great potential, but for some reason, it remained flat and almost boring.

And as the movie came to an end, I also felt as if the plot in itself ended up being quite boring.

A Simple Favor rating

I would give this movie a 5/10 score. It should have been way better, but at the same time, it could have been way worse!


A Simple Favor can now be streamed on Amazon Prime in the United States. I don’t know for how long it will be available on the platform, so if you have the intention of streaming the movie, I strongly suggest that you get started straight away!

What to watch on Amazon Prime for Christmas in 2019?

Christmas is a season of love, of joy, and of having a wonderful time together with those that we love. Watching a great movie together can be a wonderful time to spend such precious moments together, but what does Amazon Prime do to help you on your quest for the precious Christmas atmosphere in 2019?

I seem to remember from earlier years that Amazon Prime isn’t the best place to be if you want to stream awesome movies before Christmas. Has anything changed in 2019? I have just spent some hours looking through the movies available on Amazon Prime, and to be honest, the most interesting Christmas title will be removed from Amazon Prime on November 21st (The Man Who Invented Christmas).

There are a couple of movies that might be of interest to some, but the only quality content available is for kids and animated stuff.

Christmas content on Amazon Prime in 2019

There are lots of results if you search for Christmas movies available for Prime subscribers, but if you look at the quality of the actual results, you will almost be disgusted. Most of the productions have so bad quality that I would have made a better movie with my mobile phone at home (at least it feels as if I would have). Some of them haven’t even got trailers available, meaning that they were never meant to reach a large audience.

Luckily, there are a few exceptions. One such exception is the movie Noel, starring Penelope Cruz, Susan Sarandon, Paul Walker, and Alan Arkin. For some reason, this never reached the big audience either, but still – there are at least some famous actors taking part in the movie.

The second Christmas movie with some celebrities on Amazon Prime is A Merry Friggin Christmas. Here we meet Robin Williams, Pierce Gagnon, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Lauren Graham, and Joel McHale, in something that looks like a B- production. Still, it is one of the best options for those looking for a Christmas movie to stream on Amazon Prime in 2019.

What to watch on Amazon Prime for Christmas then?

That is the question I keep asking myself as well. If you have some kids in the house, show them an old mixture for classics which is available with the Prime subscription. You can also watch If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

If you check the little clip above presenting the best Christmas content on Amazon Prime in 2019, you should definitely see it through. How come? After the presentation of lousy and poor Christmas movies available, you will see three movie recommendations that can be streamed on Amazon Prime that has nothing to do with Christmas. I guess they will give you a way better mood than those poor Christmas movies, so I would just go ahead and stream those instead.

Are you ready then? Or have you found a Christmas movie worth watching on Amazon Prime? Write a comment and let me know what’s on your heart!

Movies that should have been available on Amazon Prime

There are so many Christmas classics that should have been on Amazon Prime, but that is nowhere to be found. The Holiday and Love Actually might be the two biggest Christmas classics from modern times. And then you have lots of other Christmas movies that I would call B movies (4 Christmases, Christmas with the Kranks, and others). These are not really good movies, but compared to what’s available on Amazon Prime currently, it would be a dream to have these movies available.

I wish you all a fantastic Christmas and a happy new year!

Coming to Amazon Prime November 2019

What’s coming to Amazon Prime in November 2019? To be honest, one of the best months in a long time. So, take a look at the list and see if you will get something to look forward to as well!

I normally don’t stream much content on Amazon.com. In fact, I much rather use Hulu and Netflix, simply because there are more movies and TV shows available on those platforms that I love and that I enjoy. But, when I scrolled through the list of what’s coming to Amazon Prime in November 2019, I was surprised to see that there are at least 3-4 titles that made me curious and that I want to watch in November.

The Report (2019) – Amazon Original movie
Low Tide (2019)

I have written four titles in bold, and those are the four most interesting arrivals on Amazon Prime in November (the way I see it). The Report is a movie starring Adam Driver, a fantastic actor. He is working on unveiling the truth about the interrogations and what took place after September 11th.

Man in the High Castle season 4 will come to Amazon Prime in November
From Man in the High Castle season 4

But, Adam Driver isn’t the only person trying to unveil crimes. Jack Ryan, is also out there to solve the trouble. Even though it is a computer analyst, he is doing so much more, and in the second season of this action series from Amazon, he is dealing a lot with Venezuela and possible attacks and trouble coming from the country. I have watched the entire first season of the show, and I do hope they will manage to make the second season even better!

What would have happened if the Germans won the Second World War? Well, the final season of The Man in the High Castle will come to Amazon Prime in November 2019. This will, hopefully, be a worthy end to this very popular Amazon original series.

If I had to say which titles I look forward to the most, then it would probably be Jack Ryan season 2, and Brittany Runs a Marathon. The latter sounds and looks quite funny, and it makes me think of similar movies like I Feel Pretty (with Amy Schumer). So, here we have a girl with some trouble and who feels like nobody pays attention to her. One day, she decides to make a change and soon it turns into preparation for a marathon. Will she succeed? And will she feel more happy about herself after all of this?

How to watch Amazon Prime abroad?

Do you have an Amazon Prime subscription, but you don’t know how you can stream it and watch all the Prime content when outside the United States? It is quite easy. I have written detailed instructions at amazonprime.fromabroad.org, so check the article and get ready to stream everything you want to on Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, on your Android phone/tablet, on your iPhone/iPad, on your Windows computer, or maybe on your Playstation, no matter where you might be in the world.

What will you stream on Amazon Prime in November?

Do you have any favorite movies or TV shows that will come to Amazon Prime in November 2019? I would love to hear your thoughts and comments!

How many people subscribe to Amazon Prime in the United States?

Would you like to know how many people subscribe to Amazon Prime in the United States? Do you have a guess? When I first created this page, the number was 10,000,000 people. Do you know how many people subscribe to Amazon Prime in the USA as of June 2019? You are about to know!

It is quite amazing to see that the number in June 2018 was 95,000,000 subscribers. That is a stunning number and considering that these all pay 10 USD per month (or more) for the service, it is amazing. But, the stagnation hasn’t started, because Amazon Prime seems to be growing and growing.

How many people subscribe to Amazon Prime in the Untied States?
How many people subscribe to Amazon Prime in the Untied States?

As a matter of fact… numbers from June 2019

The truth is, in June 2019, Amazon Prime in the United States had more than 105,000,000 subscribers. If all these numbers are correct, Amazon Prime had an increase of 10,000,000 subscribers in the USA in one year. That means, almost 30,000 new subscribers come to Amazon Prime every day (by average). That is just a crazy number!

There is no wonder why so many people come to this page to discover how they can watch Amazon Prime abroad. After all, with more than 105,000,000 subscribers, thousands and thousands of these reside outside the USA at all times, meaning that they need to find other ways to access Amazon Prime videos and content abroad.

What is even more interesting about these numbers is that an average Prime member spends 1400 USD on the platform every year. So, if they spend 150 USD on average paying for their Amazon Prime subscription, that is only 10% of the actual amount they spend on Amazon.com every single year.

How much did Amazon earn from Amazon Prime member subscriptions in 2018?
Would you like to know how much money was paid to Amazon in Amazon Prime membership fees in 2018? The number is 14.2 billion U.S. dollars.

It can also be seen that Prime members spend more, maybe because they are Prime members, or maybe they are Prime members because they spend more… I am not sure about that. However, those shopping at Amazon.com without a Prime subscription spend 600 USD on the platform on average annually, which is a much lower amount than those with a Prime subscription.

There is a trend that Amazon customers do most of their shopping from Amazon. That is why many people order groceries and daily necessities from Amazon, leading to several orders from the online store per weak. That is a very different mentality compared to those who only visit Amazon when they want to buy a certain product or something like that.

When will the amount of Amazon Prime subscribers start to decrease?

There is no sign of decrease when it comes to Amazon Prime subscription yet. The general trend is that the biggest get bigger, and it gets harder and harder to come forth with a little store in this world.

I will pay attention to what’s going on and write more articles in the future!


Coming to Amazon Prime in September 2019

I hope you have lots of programs planned for September 2019, because Amazon Prime in the United States will not bring lots of content worth streaming. Curious about what’s coming to Amazon Prime Video in September? Check the full list here!

I guess I should be enthusiastic and spread the joys of owning an Amazon Prime subscription. But, as I looked through the list of what’s coming to Amazon Prime on September 2019, I simply couldn’t find many reasons to smile and to rejoice. So, I guess I have got to go with honest instead, and to be honest, September on Amazon Prime is really crappy.

Coming to Prime Video in September
Undone – a new Amazon series coming in September 2019

Of course, the fact that Leslie Nielsen will come to Amazon Prime in September with his Naked Gun movies might be cool… but, we are in 2019, and it shouldn’t be a highlight when more than 20-year-old movies are added to a streaming platform. In the same way, the original Mad Max movies from the 80s will come to Amazon Prime, but should that really be a highlight?

If I should mention two more movies, it will be Face/Off and Event Horizon, both from 1997. These are awesome movies, and when I watched Event Horizon, I had trouble sleeping for a couple of days… it was really scary. Face/Off is a very different movie, but a truly brilliant one starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. It is really well made, and it is such a brilliant plot that I feel like watching it again thinking about the story and the plot of the movie.

Besides the mentioned movies, I would probably go to HBO or Netflix to watch some great content on those streaming services instead.

Those bad superheroes surprised me (The Boys on Amazon)

I have just watched the first episode of The Boys on Amazon. I didn’t know what to expect before the first episode, only that it was supposed to be about superheroes not only fighting on the good side. I watched the trailer as well, but I had a hard time really understanding what to expect based on the trailer. But, after watching one single episode, I know have a better grip on the story!

Hughie Campbel in The Boys
Hughie Campbel in The Boys

I thought The Boys would be about a group of superheroes doing good, but also having trouble with their own personalities. After watching the first episode on Amazon, I got to say that I was kind of correct. But, not entirely.

Who are The Boys?

To my surprise, The Boys isn’t the title of those superheroes, but about a small group of some people actually going against the superheroes. But, why would they need to fight against them or go against the superheroes? Well, it seems as if they aren’t really as good as one would expect.

Hughie Campbell is one of the boys. We meet him at the start of the first episode as he stands with his girlfriend chatting on the street. Suddenly, A-Train (a superhero moving with superspeeds) runs by them and the girlfriend ends up dead after being “torn to pieces” by the superhero moving with superspeed. Hughie isn’t able to be at peace with this, and as he meets Billy Butcher, they decide to go for “The Seven” to get them down. But, it isn’t gonna be that easy.

At the same time, we also meet the brand new member of The Seven, Erin Moriarty, better known as Starlight. She comes with entirely pure intentions to the superhero-assembly, and she is greatly surprised to discover the corrupted morale among the people she had adored until she became one of them. Where will this take her in the coming episode? I don’t know yet!

Why The Boys surprised me (in a positive way)?

After watching the trailer, I didn’t feel like watching The Boys at all. It looked like a mess to me, but I took the time to watch the first episode. And to be honest, it threw me so many curveballs that it caught my attention, and actually made me curious about how this will continue from here.

Yes, the fact that it is so different makes it good. I still have seven more episodes to watch before I get to the end of season 1, and we already know that The Boys has been renewed for a second season. But, based on the pilot episode, this for sure looks good!

Where can you watch The Boys online?

If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, then stream it on Amazon Prime. If you have a Prime Video subscription, stream it on Prime Video. If you do not have either, you better get one of them. You can find out more on how to stream Amazon Prime videos abroad, and those instructions will also help you actually buy an Amazon Prime subscription in the United States.

I do not know of any other TV channels showing this Amazon show currently, so this is the way to watch it. There are some Amazon shows that you can stream on other platforms, but this is not one of them!

How did you like The Boys?

Have you seen the first episode? Have you seen several episodes? How did you like The Boys? I would love to hear your thoughts!

I thought Under the Silver Lake was worth watching…

Every month I write articles about what’s coming to Amazon Prime. One of the highlights for me in July was the arrival of Under the Silver Lake. At least, I thought it was going to be a highlight!

It might sound strange from someone writing blog posts about Amazon Prime, but I normally don’t find the selection of movies and TV shows available on Amazon Prime to be satisfying. It is almost identical to what you can stream on Hulu, only with fewer TV shows available. But, Under the Silver Lake was a movie that was added to Amazon Prime that couldn’t be streamed on Hulu, nor on HBO Now or on Netflix, so this gave me a chance to enjoy the membership. But, was the evening spent watching Under the Silver Lake a success?

Should you watch Under the Silver Lake on Amazon Prime?

If you already have an Amazon Prime membership, feel free to give the movie a try. But, if you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership yet, I would not get one because of this movie. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, except for the fact that I thought it would contain interesting twists and an interesting story. I did get some twists, but they were simply too crazy and ended up being boring. As a result, we were three who watched the first hour of the movie, and I ended up finishing it all by myself. I didn’t watch it till the end because I liked it, but because I am like Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory. Maybe you don’t know what that means? I simply have to finish what I start to have peace in my mind. So, I finished it, and as I finished, I felt as if I had wasted a couple of hours of my life.

Well, I didn’t exactly throw them away, because they helped me write this negative article. But, still – this wasn’t the best movie experience I have had. In fact, it was one of the most boring and disappointing movie experiences I have had in a long time. Maybe it would have been easier if I didn’t look so much forward to watching it?

Have you seen Under the Silver Lake on Amazon Prime? How did you like it?

Do you need help watching Amazon Prime abroad? You can read more about how it can be done at amazonprime.fromabroad.org.

I thought this would be one of the great summer movies on Amazon Prime in 2019, but I was wrong. I guess I should watch The Spy Who Dumped Me instead? Or do you have some other recommendation for me?

New on Amazon Prime in August 2019

What has Amazon Prime got to offer their customers in the United States in August 2019? Are they giving them many reasons to start their Fire TV or to start their laptop or their Prime Video application on a mobile device in August? Find out as you check the list of what’s new on Amazon Prime in August 2019.

I am actually a bit surprised by the list presenting what’s coming to Amazon Prime in August. Do you know why? It feels better and more interesting than it normally does.

If you want action taking place at beautiful sights all around the world, make sure to stream Mission Impossible: Fallout on Amazon Prime in August. I have seen it myself, and it is so great to see Tom Cruise in this series. The movies are funny, and they are still making your palms sweat as he faces challenges all across the world, like when he hangs from the Preachers Pulpit in Norway at the end of the movie (the story tells that it is in Kashmir, but the true location of recording was in Norway). You can also see them parachute above Paris and much more in this quite new action movie!

A Simple Favor is another blockbuster movie coming quickly to Amazon Prime (something we are not very used to). This is a thriller like we know them and love them, packed with curves and interesting turns in the story. I watched this is in the cinema, and even though I didn’t love the movie, I still had a great time watching it. A perfect treat for those who love mysterious thrillers, without getting too scared.

Photograph is the name of an Amazon Original movie. I hadn’t heard about it before writing this article, but it looks like a really nice and romantic movie, ideal for women and for couples. We meet a man who has never really found a girl (and he always wants the approval of his grandmother), and we also get exposed to a girl looking for the one true love. Will they meet?

I have watched quite a lot of Hanna recently, but as Good Omens also popped up on my screen in ads before a Hanna episode, I decided to take a look at this show as well.

I had no clue at all what Good Omens was about, but the official description at the Prime Video website says:

Aziraphale and Crowley, of Heaven and Hell respectively, have grown rather fond of the Earth. So it’s terrible news that it’s about to end. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing. The Four Horsemen are ready to ride. Everything is going according to the Divine Plan…except that someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. Can our heroes find him and stop Armageddon before it’s too late?

Maybe you expect Good Omens to be some sort of dark and action filled armageddon series. Well, think again? You do not need more than one minute of this show to understand that this is meant to be a comedy, amusing its viewers and also having fun with the basic principles of good and evil.

From the first minutes of Good Omens

In the first scenes of Good Omens, we meet the two angels Aziraphale and Crowley. One is meant to be the messenger of good while the other is meant to be the messenger of evil. But, as the evil (Crowley) tempt Adam and Eve into eating of the apple, they actually start to think about whether he actually did good by giving them the knowledge. After all, if it wasn’t bad, then why would Crowley tempt them to eat from the tree?

And as the two creatures keep on speaking, they both fear that they have done wrong. What if Crowley did well as he tempted them to eat from the tree, and what if Aziraphale did wrong in sending them away?

As you can understand, this is a real soup of a story, but it has some funny points to it. And as we get to know these two creatures, we understand that they actually appreciate their place on earth and they have little interested in seeing the world come to an end. So, what can they do about it?

That is what you will find out if you decide to watch Good Omens on Amazon Prime.

The 15 Best Movies on Amazon Prime [Summer of 2019]

Bored? Looking for something to stream? Tired of tanning and swimming? Here you will find the 15 best movies on Amazon Prime this summer!

It isn’t easy to compile a list of the best movies on Amazon Prime. There is so much to watch, and we are completely different when it comes to taste and requests. That is why I tried to include quite different movies in this list, meaning that you will hopefully find at least a couple of movies that you will find interesting!

Take a look at the trailer above from YouTube presenting the best summer movies on Amazon Prime in 2019 to find out more.

Some of the Amazon Prime highlights this summer

Are you tired of the typical Hollywood movies and want something that has a meaning, a purpose, and not always the happiest ending? The Private War tells the story of a photographer who has traveled into war zones and seen terrible things, all because she wanted to report and see with her own eyes what’s going on. This is a true story and one that might be a real eye-opener!

Even though I can Only Imagine is a Hollywood production, it is still based on an entirely true story, and it is a heart-melting story about love, forgiveness, compassion, hatred, and a beautiful song born out of all of this.

Would you rather watch some traditional Hollywood fun? Then you can go for Baywatch or Overboard for some lame, but still funny, summer movies on Amazon Prime.

Reese Witherspoon in Home Again is a good summer candidate on Amazon Prime this summer.
Do not miss out on Reese Witherspoon on Home Again, also available and recommended to stream on Amazon Prime during the summer of 2019.

In the mood for some action instead? Then Bruce Willis is quite amusing in the movie Death Wish, while Liam Neeson does his part to keep you stuck to the screen in the movie The Commuter. Neither of these movies are great, in fact, Death Wish actually won some Raspberry Awards (the opposite of the Academy Awards). But, that doesn’t mean that it is entirely terrible!

If you liked About Time, go ahead and watch Time Freak as well. It is almost a copy of the story, except for the fact that it doesn’t take the concept to include child-birth and so on.

These are just some of all the amazing content that you can stream on Amazon Prime this summer. Take a look at the entire clip above to get even more recommendations.
