SALMA Hayek as Frida Kahlo.

Spending the Holy Week break at home and looking for fresh titles to stream? Here are some interesting offerings from Prime Video Philippines.


An intimately raw and magical journey through the life, mind and heart of iconic artist Frida Kahlo, Frida is told through her own words for the very first time. It is drawn from her famed illustrated diary, revealing letters, essays and candid print interviews — and brought vividly to life by lyrical animation inspired by her unforgettable artwork. The feature film directorial debut of acclaimed editor Carla Gutiérrez (RBG, La Corona), Frida posits a striking context as to why the artist — and her art — remains as powerful as ever.

‘Invincible’ (Season 2, Part 2)

Based on the groundbreaking comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, Invincible revolves around 18-year-old Mark Grayson, who’s just like every other guy his age — except his father is (or was) the most powerful superhero on the planet. Still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season One, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear — that he might become his father without even knowing it.

‘Road House’

Road House stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Dalton, an ex-UFC fighter trying to escape his dark past and his penchant for violence, in this adrenaline-fueled actioner.

She hires him to be her new bouncer in hopes of stopping a violent gang, which works for crime boss Brandt (Billy Magnussen), from destroying her beloved bar.

Even five to one, Brandt’s crew is no match for Dalton’s skills. But the stakes get higher with the arrival of ruthless gun-for-hire, Knox (Conor McGregor). As the brutal brawls and bloodshed escalate, the tropical Keys prove more dangerous than anything Dalton ever faced in the Octagon. Also starring Daniela Melchior, Joaquim de Almeida and Lukas Gage.
