Weekend is here and we can finally sit down and binge watch some shows we like. Streaming sites came as a saviour for people like us who have no plans of going out on weekends. So if you are a person like me who would just crawl into their beds with a box of pizza and million packets of chips and everything unhealthy then here is something interesting for you. By now you must have seen everything that interests you on Amazon Prime but don’t just limit yourself to some of the shows. If you are bored at home why don’t you check out these awesome regional movies there and maybe you will like them.
