The first of which is 7 Things To Do Before I'm 30 starring Amber as Lori Maddison
After her life hits some bumps in the road Lori decides to return home to try and figure out her next move. While exploring a childhood bedroom she discovers a list of 7 things she planned to do before turning 30 written years earlier. With just a few days left before her birthday she challenges herself to finish this list. To do it she’ll have to face her fears, confront her past and dare to do something new and hopefully get her life back on track.
7 Things To Do Before I'm 30 years is still one of my all-time favourite movies starring Amber. The part of Lori was written specifically for her and she gets a rare opportunity to lead a cast. Lori is charming, funny and kind the only problem is she doesn't believe in herself, Amber brings her to life brilliantly and this is a must see for Amber fans.
The film was originally released in 2008 made for the Lifetime Network. It has never been shown on UK TV (to the best of my knowledge) nor is it available on DVD in the UK although it could be imported from Australia. Thanks to Amazon Instant Video it’s widely available in the UK for what I believe to be the very first time. Click the link below and you'll see a variety of options. You can buy the movie, rent it for a limited time and it's even currently available for free to customers with an Amazon prime subscription.
The second movie is The Griddle House
The Griddle House was released earlier this year, starring alongside Amber is her former Buffy The Vampire Slayer co star Clare Kramer and fellow Buffyverse actor Charisma Carpenter. The Griddle House is actually the first opportunity Charisma and Amber have had to work together.
The movie tells the story of Jack Benson (Alex Shaffer) who’s on a search for his birth mother believing her to be one of three women Tiny (Amber Benson), Mae-Bee (Charisma Carpenter), Francis (Clare Kramer) all of whom are connected to a diner known as The Griddle House.
The Griddle House was released on region one DVD this summer and while it can be shipped to the UK I know some people prefer to buy only region 2 DVDs. At the moment as far as I'm aware there are no plans for a UK DVD release. As with 7 Things To Do Before I'm 30 it is available to buy, rent and it's also available free to Amazon prime customers. With Amazon Instant Video you can stream and/or download these movies to watch on a variety of different devices including smartphones, smart TVs, tablets and desktop computers and more.

I'm delighted these movies are now more widely available to UK fans and if you haven't been able to see them before check them out you won't be disappointed.
