There's a way to get Knives Out totally free but I'm not promoting it as it may go against the ToS of the website, maybe, I'm not sure. Just one word: Torrents

I have to Rent or Buy to watch Knives Out.

I did find a sequel - Knives Out 2, but not available yet.

I've never rented from Prime - have no idea how to go about it. Would I still be able to cast it to the TV?

Prime has a companion outlet called "freevee". Its a no charge site and you don't have to have Prime to watch it. Just Google and join.

I cancelled my Prime subscription, a while back and enjoy what freevee offers. A few commercials but, doesn't take away from the movies and TV shows.

We found the site to watch Bosch Legacy. Loved the original Bosch series. :)

OK! Super thanks guys! - I'll have to sit and study my choices now.

I thought when we retired and left the farm things were supposed to be quieter.
How come I'm so busy? and can't find time to do everything?

Didn't know about this. Nice. Thanks.
However in my circumstances I would prefer something which tells me how much data I have to spend per film, and therefore I prefer to download them and watch. But it's really great to have a choice like this, it adds to the options. And a great addition too.

Had nothing else to watch. So I watched "Clarkson's Farm" again. Watched all 6 episodes.

If I can't find a good film for tomorrow I'll be watching "The Great Escapists" again.

I've been goofing off with movies the last couple of weeks. Just to be clear, Himself is always goofing off. :glare: Two weeks ago he watched "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" through Roku somewhere, something he's wanted to see for a while. I had no interest in it. He really enjoyed it.

Taking advantage of DVDs through the library, in the last couple of weeks we first watched "My Cousin Vinny", a very old (30 years) movie. While Himself thought that he had seen it before, he was wrong. We both enjoyed it and laughed our supper calories off. Next up was "The 100 Foot Journey". While I really enjoyed it, he said it was "okay, good, I guess". There's a definitive answer for you. :LOL: Last night we watched "Book Club" with a whole bunch of old actors. Right from the start, Himself said "we saw this already". It took me about five or ten minutes before I remembered the story line enough to agree - right after Don Johnson entered the show. Neither one of us wanted to bother getting up to switch to a different movie, however, so we watched it again. It wasn't a waste of time because we liked it enough.

Since you mention DVDs thru the library...have you signed up for Kanopy - streaming movies thru your local library? It is free too, but you need a library card (you can get that online too, for those that don't have one): https://www.kanopy.com/en/fvrl/

Every Friday, they send me an email with new movies for the weekend. I suppose I could opt out of that email, but it is only once a week.

WOW!
That's so cool Ginny!
Our library participates in Kanapy, who'd thunk it, here in Cowboyville!!!
Now I need to find my card ;)

Woo hoo! If you have a Smart TV, DVD Player or other streaming equipment, it is pretty easy to find the channel and set it up. I use Roku, but there are plenty of options out there, these days.

Ginny, no Kanapy here. Besides, I need to quit goofing off, and Himself doesn't need any encouragement. LOL!

That's 'cuz it's too far to get to civilization to see movies? Our library offers a lot of ancestry search links. No use to me - I like Himself's side of the family better.

We watched the old ancient 1947 movie "The Ghost and Mrs.Muir" with Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison, and a very young Natalie Wood. I loved the TV series in the late 1960s, so I thought I would see this classic movie. Himself, a lover of old movies, had seen it several times - but he still watched it with me. I was disappointed. I remembered the series as being very light-hearted and endearingly funny. This was not that.

On the plus side, I found all 50 episodes of the TV series are on Youtube! I watched episode one just now. Still as sweet as I remember. Hope Lange was quite a beauty. And Charles Nelson Reilly kills it as the realtor! :ROFLMAO: As of right now, I think I'll be watching the other 49. (Just not tonight)

I remember back as a kid there was a radio give away to the local(ish) theme park and my brother was the right caller. The clue was "The ghost and ____"

We had a lovely day at the park. My mom gave him the answer.

I've never seen the movie.

Well, this is Cowboyville after all ;)
I can't find my library card, but I'll stop by there later in the week I think and also chat them up on Kanapy...

Another old movie tonight, but it was made after Himself and I were. :LOL: From 1958, we watched Rosalind Russell in "Auntie Mame". Himself said that he watched it when he was around ten and didn't understand much of it. When we finished laughing tonight, he said he knew why he didn't get it as a kid - it was full of adult double entendre. :LOL:

Can't remember...I watch them all...and frequently refer to them in the course of conversation...OH! Not a movie. Been watching "The Boys" new season. Tonight will be "Westworld". Eagerly awaiting "House of the Dragon".

CG: Auntie Mame, one of my all time faves, both versions. Big musicals fan here.
