But, I was very surprised to discover that Aquaman actually came earlier to Europe. I actually got to watch Aquaman in the cinema yesterday (on December 13th) as it had its premiere in Hungary then. For a while I felt sad that I didn’t live in the USA, which would have made me eligible for the early Amazon premiere on December 15th, but then I discovered that I get it even faster in Europe (with or without a Prime subscription).
You have a lot to look forward to if you plan to watch Aquaman in the cinema. It might not be the best of all superhero movies, but it is still entertaining and a great move in the right direction for DC Comics. After this movie, they now have a great Aquaman that people like, in addition to Wonder Woman.
November might be a boring month, and kids can’t wait for December and Christmas to arrive. But, will there be any content coming to Amazon Prime that will cheer the kids up while waiting for Christmas in November 2018?
It might not be for kids, but a brand new Original Amazon series named Homecoming will be launched in November. It features Julia Roberts and is created by Sam Esneill (the guy behind Mr. Robot). Football fans can rejoice in quite a lot of matches that will be made available on Prime in November, but if you want to watch a great movie, then there isn’t such a wide selection.
Kids will be happy about the Holiday version of Creative Galaxy, while adults can look forward to Downsizing with Matt Damon, and to Sleepless, both great movies from 2017
Take a look at the full list of content coming to Amazon Prime in November 2018 right here.

The fourth season of Cuckoo has just been released by BBC. Cuckoo fans all across the world are happy, but is there a way to watch all four seasons on Amazon? Is it included with the Prime subscription?
Cuckoo is a British humor series created for/by BBC 3. It is a classic example of how BBC can create fantastic TV series, and it is one of my favorites series. I had to wait a long time for the fourth season to arrive, but on August 3rd it was released on BBC. Big fans of the series can watch all four seasons of Cuckoo on the BBC website, so if you are a big fan and want to stream Cuckoo online, I suggest you watch it on BBC. All seasons can be seen for free, the only requirement is that you are located in England. If you live outside England, follow these instructions to watch Cuckoo on BBC from abroad.
But, let us return to the original question. Is it possible to watch Cuckoo on Amazon? Is it included with the Prime subscription? The answer is yes, and no!
You can watch the first three seasons of Cuckoo on Amazon in the USA and in the UK. The fourth season is not available anywhere yet, but it will be released on DVD in the UK on December 31st in 2018. It will most likely turn available as an Instant Video a few weeks later both in the USA and in the UK, but I cannot say anything for sure about that, because the first three seasons are not available as Instant Videos now either. We can hope…
Cuckoo is not included in any Prime package
So, you can buy the seasons or stand-alone episodes, but Cuckoo is not available with the Prime subscription in any country. The reason is that it has been sold to Netflix (or something like that), and therefore it is shown as a Netflix original content in most nations where you can watch Cuckoo on Netflix. And as you probably know, original Netflix content will not show up as Amazon Prime content.
Again, I recommend you to use BBC if you want to watch Cuckoo online right now. You can watch all four seasons on BBC iPlayer, so why wait or pay for a Prime subscription or for a DVD, when you can watch all Cuckoo seasons (including the fourth season) on BBC right away?
I had great expectations as I prepared to watch Beatriz at Dinner. I have seen different trailers and written about it several times, and recently I finally got the chance to watch the movie.
The different trailers made it look really promising, and I decided a long time ago that this is a movie I would like to watch. As of August 2018, it is included on Amazon Prime, and it can also be seen in quite a lot of Netflix regions, so I decided to finally go ahead and watch the movie.
I mentioned Beatriz at Dinner in a recent article (before watching the movie), and there I mentioned the scores at Rotten Tomatoes. It has a critics score of 64%, while the audience score is “only” 55%. I do not really care about the audience score of 55%, but the fact that the critics’ score is much higher gave me a bad feeling. There is a general trend that tells me that if a movie has a higher critics score than audience score, then I normally do not like it.
I finally watched Beatriz at Dinner
And then I finally got to watch Beatriz at Dinner. I really wanted it to be an interesting movie, but I had a hard time concentrating. It had some great perspectives on things, and the actors all did a great job, but still… I had a hard time concentrating on the movie throughout the story. It had a fantastic potential, but somehow, it didn’t manage to live up to its full potential.
I can understand that the critics’ enjoy the movie and give it a high score, and I can also understand why the general audience finds this movie to be a bit boring.
I do not believe that we are all the same, but in a stereotype kind of world, I would say that this is a perfect movie for aged couples between 50-70 years who like watching movies with interesting conversations on topics such as politics, environment, and healthcare.
Have you seen Beatriz at Dinner on Amazon Prime, Netflix, or maybe somewhere else? How did you like the movie?
Last year I wrote a few articles about Manchester By The Sea, and I said, that it will probably never get to Netflix. I was wrong!
Manchester By The Sea is an Amazon Original Movie, and it is one of the most successful original Amazon movies so far. Casey Affleck won an Oscar statue for his performance as a highly depressed guy who has to move back to his hometown after his father dies. The film is completely depressing from start till end, but the critics often enjoy such stuff, so I guess that is the reason for its success.
Well, back then I said that this movie will never get to Netflix, simply because it is an Amazon Original Movie. In the same way, Orange is the New Black will never become a part of the Amazon Prime package, as it is a Netflix original.
But again, I was wrong. Not about Orange is the New Black, but about Manchester By The Sea. The movie can now be streamed on Netflix. It cannot be seen on US Netflix, so I guess Amazon has secured themselves. Instead, it can be seen by people with a Netflix subscription in South Korea. The reason might be that Amazon will not set their foot in South Korea (probably), and then it feels quite okay to let people watch their original content, even if it has to be on Netflix.
Now, I highly doubt that Manchester by the Sea will ever be added to Netflix in countries in which there exist an Amazon store, and especially an available Amazon Prime subscription. But, I was wrong once, and I might turn out to be wrong again. Who knows?
For more information on how to watch Netflix abroad, visit netflix.fromabroad.org. There is no method for watching South Korean Netflix there, but you can read about how to watch quite a lot of other regions.
Would you like to watch the action movie Death Wish on Amazon? It can be done, as it is available both for purchasing and borrowing!
I just watched Death Wish, and it is a fairly good action movie with Bruce Willis. It isn’t a movie I want to watch one more time, but as a one-time-stand on a boring evening, it is a nice movie to watch.
In Death Wish, we meet Bruce Willis playing the role of Dr. Kersey. He is working at the ER and every day he has to treat people coming in with gun wounds and other injuries. It doesn’t affect him a lot, but when his very own wife and daughter are attacked in their own house he decides to take fate into his own hands.
The doctor starts wearing a hoodie and he becomes the protector of the innocent. He isn’t a pro, but he still becomes a kind of protector of the weak in his neighborhood.
Would you like to watch Death Wish on Amazon Prime? It cannot be done, but you can still rent it as an Instant Movie, or buy it and watch it whenever you want to.
Death Wish cannot be streamed in any Netflix region yet, and it isn’t on HBO Now either, so you can just as well buy it or rent it if you are eager to watch it.
I just placed an order for eight books on Amazon.com, and yet again I was surprised to discover that the second best option was the cheapest. This is the second time I have seen this happen.
I am not sure what has exactly happened, but I have a feeling that the price of the cheapest shipping has increased, and thus the second best shipping version has turned into the cheapest. It is negative if you want shipping to be as cheap as possible, but if you still order and want to get it at soon as possible, you can at least order fast shipping with a clean conscience.
As I placed my order today, the price was approximately 80 USD, shipping included. The shipping cost was 31 USD, meaning that the books costed me 49 USD. It feels quite steep that I pay just as much for the shipping as for the books, but that is the way it is when you order from the United States to Europe.
What did I order?
A few weeks ago I wrote about the Where is Waldo books that I remember so well from my childhood. I ordered 3 books more than a month ago, and they became so popular, that I just had to order the rest of the Where is Waldo books. And because they are so popular, I ordered two examples of several of them, so I have books to give away as birthday gifts and Christmas gifts as well.
A few days ago Google had a cool thing happening. If you opened Google Maps you could see Waldo looking in on one side of your screen. If you pressed the picture of Waldo you got the chance to look for him at special maps/pictures made for Google.
I had a very good time looking for Waldo and his friends in the Google Maps task, and I also remembered what a good time I had when I was a child looking for Waldo here and there in books. So, guess what? I had some money left on my Amazon account, and now I have used quite a lot of them purchasing Where’s Waldo books for my children. Yeah, they deserve to have a fantastic time searching for Waldo in the books as well.
But, I did not only order Where’s Waldo books. As I looked for the Where’s Waldo books, Amazon kept recommending me Bigfoot Search and Find books. I have never heard about those before, but they sound cool, and thus, I ordered one such book as well. It will, of course, take a while for these books to be delivered to Europe, but I have plenty of time, so that should not cause me any trouble.
Until then, I guess I will wait and watch some great TV series. At the moment my favorite is the Scandinavian TV series The Bridge (Broen). You can watch the first three seasons on Amazon as Instant Video, and I guess the fourth (and final) season will be made available soon. They speak Swedish and Danish in the TV series, but it comes with English subtitles, so it is absolutely a thrill. I am soon finished with the fourth season, and my favorite season has been the first, but all the other seasons have been great as well!
Would you like to buy a brand new Kindle Paperwhite, or maybe something else for Easter? Do you live in Europe? Get hold of great products at amazing prices on Amazon.de.
It is a tradition every year for Amazon.de to have great offers before Christmas, and this is especially true about their Kindle Paperwhite. This is the leading Kindle version on the market, and it has a normal price at 120 Euro. When they do their regular Christmas discount the price is 99 Euro, and earlier years the Easter discount price has been 79 Euro. This year they are taking it even further, which means that you can get a brand new Kindle Paperwhite costing only 75 Euro at Amazon.de. Isn’t that simply amazing? If you have ever considered buying a Kindle, this is the time!
Are you a fan of the Star Wars? Have you seen the latest movie yet, The Last Jedi? If you did not see it in theaters, you can now buy it and stream it on Amazon.com and other streaming services.
You can not watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi with your Amazon Prime subscription (yet). The truth is, you will probably not be able to stream this movie ever with your Prime subscription, especially now that Disney will launch their very own streaming service. So, if you will be able to stream this movie somewhere, it will be on the Disney streaming service sometime in the future. But, until then, why not buy the movie on Amazon.com and stream it there right away? You can not rent the movie yet, but as we wrote about a few weeks ago, you will probably be able to rent the movie within two weeks.
I watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the cinema in December, and had a great time doing so. I love watching movies in the cinema, especially if I can combine it with some tortilla chips with salsa sauce. If I get the tortilla chips any movie will turn enjoyable! So, I did enjoy The Last Jedi, but I must say that I truly liked The Force Awakens more than I enjoyed The Last Jedi. That does not mean anything, that is just my very own opinion. So, go ahead and stream The Last Jedi on Amazon, and feel free to share your thoughts on the movie afterward.
How to stream The Last Jedi on Amazon.com from abroad?
Do you wonder how to buy and stream movies on Amazon.com from abroad? It can be quite hard considering that you need an American payment card to make it work, but later you will also need an American IP address (that is accepted by Amazon.com). Want to know more about how it can be done? Read my instructions on how to watch Amazon Instant Videos abroad in this article.
Wish you all a perfect day, and if you have some minutes left after watching The Last Jedi on Amazon, please write a comment to share your thoughts!
