The weasel flies west at midnight… OK, so this line isn’t actually in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, but I can’t help but think it might have been better for it. Not much, just a little. Or maybe it would have been more at home in spy spoof Top Secret! (you can stream this, you know).
Either way, last week’s Tinker Tailor premiere was huge fun, and – to begin this post of pointers towards our best streaming content – you can find the Tinker Tailor cast members in various other movies, all ready to watch instantly, in our Tinker Tailor cast collection.
Double DiCaprio this month sees Leo in the explosive actioner Blood Diamond, set during the 1999 Sierra Leone civil war, and as a CIA agent in Body of Lies, opposite Russell Crowe and – in fantastic form – TTSS cast member Mark Strong.
A pair of Pirates movies are available too. Watch the joyous, off-kilter voyage that launched the whole escapade, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, at no extra cost. And get the fourth film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, on pay-per-view, as Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush go back to basics, and add Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane (Lovejoy, as far as I’m concerned) into the mix.
There’s more from the chameleonic Depp, in animated form in animal-comedy-western Rango, plus ghostly scare-fare Insidious, and Marion Cotillard in drama Little White Lies – all also on a pay-per-view basis.
And in the no-extra-cost camp, some films that have always proved really popular when we’ve streamed them before: De Niro, Liotta, Pesci and co in Scorsese’s all-time gangster classic Goodfellas. Al Pacino and Colin Farrell up to CIA shenanigans in The Recruit. Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson in genre-bending buddy movie Shanghai Noon. And The Matrix – why wouldn’t you?!
Caped cartoon capers abound in Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (it’s really good, and it’s not the only one we’ve got, actually), plus animated ants in The Ant Bully. And it might be worth checking out Daniel Craig playing a washed-up Hollywood star in Flashbacks of a Fool.
Oh, and from October 1, you can stream Twilight: Eclipse. As part of your normal subscription. At no extra cost. As if anyone’s going to be interested in that…
