If you want additional resources to complement your Kodi application. You can install an android application called Showbox, which allows access to a vast amount of movies and TV shows.

You can even access to movie trailers and movie ratings from IMDB on the app. So it’s definitely a good additional program to have.

To operate Showbox properly, you do need another android application called mouse toggle. It provides an option to have a mouse cursor, which you can control via your Firestick remote. Otherwise, you can really select anything without it.
