  1. Amazon sometimes surprises us with the occasional big releases so here’s hoping they have something special lined up for this month.

  2. Although I’m a subscriber, there’s only one item which appeals to me in this entire month – The Rig. I see the future as being crammed with old movies most of us have already seen and are generally on other channels, plus nothing that is first rate or something to look up to.
