Since I can sticky things now I feel like it'd be pretty cool to have all the streaming topics combined the way rockus intended a while back.

Yeah, that was mostly because other than Netflix and Filmstruck I didn't see enough updates from things added to Prime and the like to keep my Amazon Prime topic going by itself. The Filmstruck topic seems to get enough traffic on its own though.

In recently added streaming news Amazon Prime added The Big Sick and Landline .

I try and keep up with what's added through just watch.com but sometimes I think things must slip through the cracks though because Prime now has Hou Hsiao-hsien's A Time to Live, A Time to Die which I'm pretty sure wasn't on there earlier. But it does keep up the trend of Taiwanese New Wave films finding availability on there. Joining the likes of The Terrorizers, The Sandwich Man, In Our Time, and Dust in the Wind.

I also noticed that Prime has the Battles Without Honor and Humanities films, which I still have yet to find time to get around to, I think both the first five films and the three New series.

So jealous of you all. Amazon Prime has a s***ty international selection. NetFlix has no English subtitles for non English films.

The joys of working abroad. >_>

Speaking of streaming sites, does anyone here have Mubi? It seems really cool, but I can't tell if it's cool enough to pay an extra $6 a month or not for it.

You like Streisand? I'm not a huge fan but her debut album is amazing.

I'm not really into her music all that much to be honest. I just found the title of that special kind of funny. I do like her movies well enough though. Like her directorial stuff like Prince of Tides and Yentl, and I love What's Up, Doc? and remember enjoying Funny Face and The Way We Were way back when I last saw them.

Yeah, it's nice to see earlier Hou available in some form at least. I'm surprised that Criterion hasn't grabbed up a few of his films like A Time to Live, A Time to Die or City of Sadness. I still need to see a number of his films and even some of the pre-2000s ones on DVD are getting harder to find. The Puppetmaster is the next one that I want to try and see if I can.

I'm in a similar boat with Amazon Prime Canada. It's got all the Amazon original TV shows (of course), but the movie selection is pathetic. No Taiwanese movies!
