As much as I enjoyed the first Reds, I was looking forward to this one. And It might actually be a good movie -- in the farcical way the first one was -- but alas, I will never know. Because Amazon is offering it via Prime -- which I pay for, every month -- but with commercial interruptions. Movie, movie, movie -- then blam, three or so commercials outta nowhere, flow interrupted. Then, sudden resumption of movie, and just when you're getting back into the rhythm of it, blam again, just like someone came into the room while you were watching pay TV, and clicked you over onto the home and garden network. This hybrid is neither fish nor fowl, but sort of like a feathered flatworm.
So, Amazon, not only am I going to find something else to watch, without commercial interruption, but it won't be on Amazon at ALL. After an experience like this, I'm going over to Netflix. Is that what you had in mind, Amazon?
You have wasted my time. And, as little as I use Amazon Prime's home-delivery of products, yet pay about $7 a month for the "privilege" of subscribing, I'm rethinking the whole Amazon Prime cocktail.
I pay, to watch movies filled with commercials? Do you think we're nuts?
Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich: Do you want to have your efforts sliced and diced like this? Because late in your careers, your box-office take is dependent on your reputations, and this hybrid disserves them.
