On the film side, Amazon Studios produces and acquires original movies for theatrical release and early window distribution exclusively for their Amazon Prime members. At the 2017 Academy Awards, Amazon Studios became the first streaming service to win Oscars for Manchester by the Sea.

After DC FanDome and mulling over the new concept behind Superman & Lois as working parents struggling to balance their professional and personal lives. I started thinking of parenting in pop culture and how it is often represented in terms of our heroes. Spoiler? It is not always a good thing. It must be tough […]
Okay, we need to get that whole thing about spoilers out of the way first, because there's no way to discuss what we're about to discuss without spilling some serious intel on this weekend's episode of Amazon Prime's The Boys." So if you haven't seen "The Bloody Doors Off" yet, now would be a good […]
Looks like Amazon Prime was so upset with Eric Kripke's weekly release schedule for The Boys that they punished him with a spinoff series. That's right, coming off the international success of the second season, the streaming service has given a fast-track series order for a superhero college-based series (no title announced) written The Boys […]
In less than twenty-four hours, the world of Utopia will unleash its secrets as Amazon Prime and Gillian Flynn's fantasy-conspiracy-action-thriller-adventure series (trust us, all of those and more are accurate descriptors). Having been treated to a "red band" trailer (which gave us a completely different impression of the series) as well as a look at the […]
During the summer's Comic-Con@Home, Amazon Prime offered viewers their first teaser look at Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End) upcoming horror-comedy series Truth Seekers. Directed by Jim Field Smith (Criminal), and written by Pegg, Frost, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz, the series focuses on a team of questionable […]
With "The Wheel of Time on Amazon Prime Book Club" closing up shop two weeks ago, we had convinced ourselves that our Wednesdays would be lacking in casting news and production updates moving forward. Thankfully, series star Rosamund Pike understood our pain and had a few things to share about the streaming service's upcoming adaptation […]
Last weekend's episode of Amazon Prime's The Boys felt like it was a breakthrough in a way for Butcher (Karl Urban), who got a hard lesson in "family" when Hughie (Jack Quaid) and Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso) go searching for him- only for the rescuers and rescuees to find themselves in need of some rescuing […]
It's pretty safe to say (and we don't think we're treading into MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! territory) that Homelander (Antony Starr) has some serious issues that are coming dangerously close to turning us off to milk altogether. Add to that his psychotic, "vengeful messiah" complex, how he's turning into a supes version of "Mommy Dearest", and […]
Welcome back for another edition of BCTV Sunday Slices, on what is a very special day across the television landscape: The Emmys. To no one's surprise, this year's ceremony is being done virtually- which means it will end up being something innovative and groundbreaking, or a bunch of famous people telling the same "look how […]
Away, the new Netflix series starring Hilary Swank is the latest show about angst-ridden astronauts heading into space. Before that, there was 2018's The First, the Hulu series starring Sean Penn which was about a bunch of angsty astronauts training to go to Mars. These two shows are mainly soap operas about astronauts and the latest […]
So this weekend brought us the fifth episode of Amazon Prime's The Boys, and without diving into spoilers? Let's just say we're impressed with just how dark things have gotten this season at the hands of series showrunner/EP Eric Kripke and the team. For this update, we'll be looking at a friendly face making its […]
With Amazon Studios and Gone Girl scribe-screenwriter Gillian Flynn's Utopia ready to spill out into our world on September 25, we've been impressed with how the streaming service is promoting the series. Yesterday, we had the violent, funny, violently funny, and disturbingly wacky at just the right time vibe (think Preacher) official "red band" trailer that […]
The last time we checked in on Amazon Prime's upcoming (and massive) The Lord of the Rings prequel series, series writer Gennifer Hutchison (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) was reminding us that no one had any intention of discussing the series outside of official press announcements. Thankfully, series star Morfydd Clark thought different during her […]
In what we're guessing could be seen as one of those "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" type of situations, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke and ex-presidential candidate/current prominent political/social activist Andrew Yang have found themselves an ally in… wait for it… Homelander?!? Just a quick flashback, Kripke and Yang became bonded over […]
Well, we didn't see this coming. Amazon Studios and Gone Girl author-screenwriter Gillian Flynn's Utopia has been ramping up its marketing machine ahead of the series' premiere on September 25. If you checked out our post from earlier today, you had a chance to sample 13 of the righteously huge amount of images released for the […]
Up to now, we've been covering Amazon Studios and Gone Girl author-screenwriter Gillian Flynn's Utopia to give viewers a better sense of what they can expect when the mystery-thriller-fantasy series (with a whole lot more adjectives we could add) premieres on the streaming service on September 25. But this time, we're trying a little something different. […]
Earlier today, we reported on how some viewers of Amazon Prime's The Boys have been bashing the series because they're a bit perturbed that the 8-episode season went with a binge/staggered release schedule with the episodes. We're on record as being pro-staggered release because it helps build the show's fan community and makes it easier […]
With a Rotten Tomatoes' "Tomatometer" score of 98%, it's safe to say that the second season of Amazon Prime's The Boys took the baton it was handed by the first season and never looked back. But then you look at the "Audience Score" and you see 80%- why? Turns out, there are people out there […]
With "We Gotta Go Now" set to drop this Friday, it's pretty clear that Amazon Prime's The Boys has been moving the chess pieces around in such a way that we are already begging for any number of potential face-offs. Homelander (Antony Starr) and Butcher (Karl Urban) is the first one that comes to mind, but Stormfront […]
With Amazon Prime's The Boys officially at the midpoint of its second season return, the show hasn't let up on the pedal and viewers are quickly realizing that what they thought they knew about the series based on what they'd seen and heard didn't even scratch the surface. One of the biggest shocks/surprises had to […]
