Prime Video is the streaming service offered by Amazon, it is a direct competitor to Netflix which is probably the most popular paid streaming service in the world right now. Compared to Netflix, Prime Video is a bit cheaper and brings more options when it comes to movie selection, specially after the company made a deal to stream Disney movies right after launch in the theaters.
Also to complement it's catalog, Amazon brings its own productions to the selection, some of which are adaptations of very famous movies and some that are 100% original productions, and as a result you'll end up with a very large movie selection. To make things easier for you here is a list the best movies you can watch on Prime Video right now, in no specific order.
The best movies on Prime Video
This movie is set in the first world war, 2 friends of the same squad are sent to a mission to which they think is a suicide one. The story unfolds in what seems to be in real time as there are many one-shot scenes. The movie is a perfect fit for anyone who has image quality as a high priority and likes suspense movies.
Glass is the third and last movie of the trilogy, the first is Unbreakable and the second Split (Both are also available). In this movie the three main characters reunite for the first time as their special skills are put to test one more time.
The First Purge
The Purge is a series that is set in an alternate version of the USA, in this "universe" there is one night a year when people can "Purge" themselves, there are no laws whatsoever and chaos reigns supreme during the night and most services are disabled. Actually this is the last movie of the series released, the first one is "The Purge" and was released in 2013.
Sonic The Hedgehog
If you are a gamer from before the 2000's you probably have played the game Sonic, and now we have an adaptation to the big screens. The movie received severe criticism in the first trailer, but the producers listened and has now become a movie that most people enjoy and you can easily watch it with your whole family on the couch.
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum
If what you are looking for is pure action with bullets going everywhere and a lot of blood on the screen this is one of the best choices you have. On the third movie John now fights to survive - with some help - after the consequences of what he has done in the first movies reach him.
The movie that broke almost all records of Box Offices is also available in the platform, 11 years after the first movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe it ends with a lot of emotions, action and many characters that we learned to love through the years. The older movies are available as well, so you do not have to begin with the last one if you haven't watched any yet.
Birds Of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
This is the first standalone movie about one of the most famous female characters from comic books: Harley Quinn. The character first appeared in 1992 with a romantic interest in The Joker, Batman's biggest and most famous enemies, although the movie itself has nothing to do with those two.Birds of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
The Day After Tomorrow
This has certainly become a classic from the 2000's movie, it is about a natural catastrophe that happens all around the globe, it shows what people have to go through to survive the extreme conditions that come after a series of natural disasters.
Guadians of the Galaxy
Even though this movie is inside the same universe as Avengers: Endgame, the movie has a completely different mood. A mix of comedy, action, space travel and classical rock brings together a movie that has very weird but at the same time fun story telling that you'll probably enjoy if you like Sci-Fi movies.
The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
It wouldn't be a complete list if one of the most loved movies of all time wasn't in it, The Lord of The Rings is a fan favorite of epic fantasy adventure stories, along with long-lasting friendships and the incredible cinematography that the movie offers, specially when considering it is from 2001. The trilogy is based on the novels by J.R.R. Tolkien and should entertain you for the whole 3 hours of screen time.
A classic animation movie that captivated many people at launch is also available in the Amazon streaming service. The story is about a son who gets lost and his father has to go through the whole ocean to find and bring his son back home.
Bad Boys For Life
Reliving the older movies, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence play two cops who have managed to send a drug dealer to jail. When he is released from prison, he goes after them to try and kill them.
Winner of many Oscars, Green Book is the story of a famous African American pianist who is going to do a concert tour in the south of the country. In that time racism was still strong and Dr Don Shirley needed some protection as well as some transport, so he hired Tony Lip for the job.
Many still consider this part of the greatest movies ever made, the movie is about Don Vito Corleone, head of a Mafia family in the 40's and it is set in New York. You have probably studied about this in School but the movie is still very interesting and attention grabbing.
Ford V Ferrari
And to end the list here is one of the best movies that came out in the theaters in a while. As a car lover, Ford V Ferrari brings everything a gearhead would want to watch in a movie: nice cars, lots of racing, iconic tracks and lots of mechanical work. Another great thing about this movie is that people who aren't that into cars can also enjoy it, and the 8.1 IMDB score and 92% at Rotten Tomatoes just reinforce it.
