In the world of streaming services, it can sometimes be confusing to understand what can be streamed on which platforms? What is the reality when it comes to Uncut Gems? Can you stream the Adam Sandler movie on Amazon Prime?
Uncut Gems is a masterpiece by Adam Sandler. I know, those words don’t normally fit into the same sentence, because Adam Sandler isn’t really known to be a guy for the masterpieces. He is the funny clown who takes part in low-budget comedies that make half the population laugh, while the rest just sits annoyed in front of their screens. But, when we start to write about Uncut Gems, it is time to forget about his past, and actually focus on the awesome job he did in the movie. Many people shouted Oscar when they considered the job he did in the movie, but the majority says that Adam Sandler has done so many lousy movies, that he cannot really be considered for an Oscar, simply because of his past. I hope that is just crap, because who cares about his past. If it is good, then it is good! Give the man an Oscar if he deserves one!
But, is Uncut Gems on Amazon Prime?
Now, in the middle of the streaming wars, one would believe that Uncut Gems would remain on Netflix alone as a Netflix original movie. But, this movie can actually be streamed on Amazon.com as well. It isn’t included with your Amazon Prime subscription, but if you are willing to pay, then you can both rent the movie or purchase the movie. How come?
This is not originally a Netflix original movie. It was shown in theaters in a few places, and it is an A24 movie (actually their highest-grossing movie ever). They might have sold it to Netflix so that they could make it available to their customers worldwide really quickly, but I guess it wasn’t really an “all-alone” Netflix deal.
Because, most other Netflix original movies like Birdbox, Murder Mystery, and A Marriage Story, cannot be found on Amazon at all. But, that is when we can see that Uncut Gems is an exception, making it not an entirely 100% pure Netflix production.
As a result, you can watch Uncut Gems on Amazon if you want to. It isn’t included in your Prime subscription, but you can purchase the movie or rent it!
What else to stream on Amazon?
Amazon is getting more and more about their very own original productions as well, just like Netflix. The content from other big providers is getting more and more limited, while the original stuff, that is what makes the platform interesting. There are some exceptions, but in general, look for those Amazon original productions like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, Jack Ryan, Hanna, and other similar productions!
Have you seen Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler? How did you enjoy the movie? Would he have deserved an Oscar for his role as Howard Ratner, a Jewish jeweler and gambling addict in New York City? I would love to hear your thoughts!
