    "Larry David is back at it again after his hit show, Curb Your Enthusiasm. The overall vibe and humor are very similar to that show and that's not a bad thing at all. I had fun watching this comedy on Amazon Prime and you probably will too."

    "This movie deserves more attention as it really is very funny and is one of my favorites ever since watching it. It's a mockumentary about vampires living together in a flat. That doesn't sound like much but give it a shot."

    "This movie is quite dated but it came out around the time when the concept of gender roles and equality was a big deal making it all the more interesting when I watched it on Amazon Prime."


The first single-lens camera that got movies started got its patent in 1888? This was by a French inventor named Louis Le Prince. The first moving picture show was a homemade movie done by Max and Emil Skladanowsky. They were the first to make movies for paying audiences throughout Europe. Silent movies ruled the early years of cinema. The most significant early movie is generally regarded German masterpiece “Metropolis.” It released back in 1927 and took several years and the use of special effects on the film. The ability to put sound on the actual movie film got its patent by American Lee De Forest in 1919. Along with the help of inventor Theodore Case, De Forest and debuted and first heard in 1927. The rest, as they say, is history.

Today, movies come in all sorts of formats and resolutions. As well as paired with amazing sound effects and designs. Some of the best movies have also diversified since then and cover many topics and themes. With the ubiquitous nature of the Internet today, streaming services have also appeared. Internet speeds have improved a lot over the past decade. They leverage this fact to offer streaming services for movies and TV shows. There are many quality streaming sites available right now. The most popular ones though would have to be the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. Amazon, in particular, has seen much-improved service and content. From action to romance, and the best comedies on Amazon Prime to now, even anime. The service's catalog has grown quite a bit. It can't quite keep up with the best Netflix shows but it's getting there.

    "Daniel Radcliffe can be so much more than Harry Potter and this movie, while not his best, is a good example of what he can and his range as an actor. Hoping to see performances like this from him in the future."
