Movies with Alexa: Fun Movie Easter Eggs with Amazon’s Alexa

On Amazon Prime Day, I bought an Amazon Dot.  I wanted to get in on the Alexa game for such a long time, and I finally bought one when it was on crazy sale.  I justified it by saying that I would blog about it in some way.  I thought I would write some one-off post about a few fun things I found, but as I started compiling my list of Easter Eggs, I found sooooo many fun Easter eggs in a bunch of categories.  So I’ve decided to break it down into a few categories, and I’ll do weekly Alexa posts for the next few Fridays.

Alexa is clearly a cinefile.  There are so many movie related Easter Eggs that I can’t hope to find them all.  So if I missed something, post it in the comments, and tell me what movie it’s from.  (You don’t have to spoil the answer, I just want to know what category to put it under.)  I’ll add them as I go along (and as I find more, I’ll keep updating.)

Here are some of the Easter Eggs I’ve found so far…

General Movie information:

  • Alexa, what is the IMDB rating for ____?
  • Alexa, who played [character] in [movie or show]?
  • Alexa, what are the showtimes for ____?  (Will give local showtimes for specific movie)

  • Alexa, what is your quest?

    1. I had it on my wishlist, so Amazon alerted me when it was on sale. Also, the Dot is the least expensive option, compared to the Echo and the tablets.

      Mine ended up being “free” because I used gift cards that I earned doing online surveys. It takes a little time to earn them, but they helped me get my Dot for free!
