This blog is about finding something good for you to watch.

Conventional online interfaces only do so much: they sell the very latest product and provide computerised recommendations based on algorithms. film-authority.com is not like that. These are personal recommendations, watched and shared. The films featured are (almost all) online, and I saw something of merit in each of these films, so there’s few one or two star reviews; three means I enjoyed it, four means I really enjoyed it and five means a stone cold classic. A few get ripped apart for sport as No Awards.

When I started the blog, I tried to link to as many different streaming services as possible, but the way in which films drop in and out of availability made this hard to maintain. So the default is Amazon, who seem to have the largest and most reliable catalogue at the moment. If the film can’t be located there, I’ll put a link for where it can (iTunes, BFI, Vudu). These links can change so apologies if you happen upon a review which has no link or the link does not work, let me know and I’ll try and fix them.

Amazon are good at switching you to the right version of Amazon for your area, UK, US or anywhere else.

And there’s always a few free ones via You Tube if you’re keen to avoid spending cash right now.
