Amazon Prime Video is making both series and movie fans happy today. For the former, there’s finally the highly-anticipated third season of the acclaimed sci-fi series “Uplaod.” And the latter can now stream “Moonage Daydream” by subscription.
Equally with the first season, the sci-fi comedy “Upload” won the hearts of the FILMSTARTS and Moviepilot editors – the Amazon series secured a place in our list of the best series of 2020. Season 2 of the series, which combines an original vision of the future with satirically accurate humor, was in no way inferior to the quality of the first season, even coming in at 100 percent positive reviews on the reviews aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.
Fans of the series can now finally look forward to season 3 of “Upload” on Amazon Prime Video starting today, October 20, 2023 – and if you only became aware of the sci-fi highlight through this article, we suggest that you definitely put “Upload” on your watchlist on Prime Video.
The approximately half-hour episodes (the only exception being episode 1 at 47 minutes) are also quickly snacked away, and after season 1 with ten episodes, season 2 also only included a crisp seven episodes. Season 3 will now feature eight episodes.
In the series from “The Office” and “Parks And Recreation” creator Greg Daniels, it is possible in a near future with the appropriate financial means to upload one’s consciousness to a virtual afterlife after death and live an idyllic “life” there.
“UPLOAD”: DRAMAS IN THE DIGITAL AFTERLIFE
In such a digital world also ends up programmer Nathan (Robbie Amell), whose consciousness was shipped there by his filthy rich girlfriend after his accidental death – and how he fares in his version of the afterlife is now dependent on his wife’s wallet. Nathan is also concerned that he is missing some memories, especially of his mysterious accident.
So he can’t really get involved in his new existence at the luxury resort Lake View. Customer service representative Nora (Andy Allo) is supposed to remedy the situation and make sure that the upload customers are happy with their new situation from the real world. Soon there is a sizzle between Nathan and Nora…
4.5-STAR MOTION PICTURE: THIS IS “MOONAGE DAYDREAM “
With 4.5 stars out of a possible 5, “Moonage Daydream” is one of the best motion pictures of 2022, and both movie and music fans shouldn’t miss the exhilarating experience, as the ultimate David Bowie trip awaits them. And it’s as colorful and fascinating as Bowie himself – “Moonage Daydream” is not a dry documentary simply recounting the life of the star, who died in 2016, but an expressive collage of images and music, thoughts and inspirations.
In our FILMSTARTS review, author Michael Meyns concludes, “An always rousing, fantastically edited tribute, crowned by David Bowie’s terrific music.” So tuning in is virtually mandatory, especially for Bowie fans – and with a Prime subscription, there’s no additional cost.
“THE OTHER ZOEY”: ROM-COM SUSPENSE WITH JOSEPHINE LANGFORD
Of course, we don’t want to deprive you of the rom-com newcom “The Other Zoey,” which fans of “After Passion” star Josephine Langford will be especially excited about, as she stars here.
Bookworm Zoey Miller (Josephine Langford) is at the top of her class, always studying hard and rather reserved around boys. While her classmates are in a flirting fever, she has other priorities. But then daredevil and heartthrob Zach (Drew Starkey) has an accident in front of her eyes, in which he loses his memory, and from then on she thinks she is his girlfriend with the same name (Maggie Thurmon) – the other Zoey!
Zoey is flattered and realizes that maybe she doesn’t care about boys as much as she always thought – so she agrees to play the game, not least so as not to jeopardize Zach’s recovery. But then Zoey meets Zach’s sensitive cousin Miles (Archie Renaux from “Shadow And Bone), who shares her interest in books and knowledge – and suddenly Zoey finds herself in absolute emotional chaos…
