Are you searching for good movies to watch on Amazon? You’ve probably come across a handful of movies on Amazon Prime Video that you haven’t seen before and you’re thinking of giving them a watch. But here’s the thing – the time is important and you don’t have a lot. So instead of wasting time on something terribly boring, why don’t you trust our recommendations and give them a go?

Amazon Prime has rights to some of the best movies of all time and we can help you find the top movies for small screen experience!

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Kazakh journalist and TV personality Borat is back on our screen after 15 years to play ridiculous pranks on unsuspecting Americans meanwhile delivering spot-on cultural commentary! Also known as Borat 2, the movie is about Borat who is visiting the US to offer his daughter to the Vice President of America Mike Pence during the 2020 presidential elections. No, we’re not joking, that is actually the premise of the film! Thus, prepare yourself for a trip down political incorrectness – you’re going to enjoy some outrageous laughs!

Selah and the Spades

We’ve grown up watching movies with boarding schools as the backdrop – a place where all bad things happen. If you’re a fan of that particular genre, you must give Selah and the Spades a shot! So what exactly is this movie about? Well, you have a senior who leads a faction known as Spades and they sell drugs to other students in the school. Since Selah is about to graduate, the school is in need of another candidate who can take her place and carry on her legacy. The movie is directed by Tayarisha Poe, a promising, new director!

The Big Sick

Kumail Nanjiani co-wrote and starred in The Big Sick. It is based on his real-life romance with wife Emily V. Gordon. The movie is about a serious illness that Emily experiences only after a few dates. At one point, she also has to go into a medically-induced coma. Kumail spends all his time at the hospital meanwhile his Pakistani parents arrange dates for him with other Pakistani women. This cultural comedy hides a heartfelt love story of an interracial couple – a movie you should watch during the holidays!

You Were Never Really Here

Are you a fan of Joaquin Phoenix? Well, you should be because there’s something terribly wrong with you if you aren’t! This psychological thriller is a treat for all his fans. It’s a story about a hitman who has been hired by a politician to rescue his daughter from a human trafficking network. The movie is brutal and starkly haunting. The screenplay is tight and with only 90 minutes running period – you’ll be hooked till the last minute! Of course, the actor pulls off his character with finesse and takes an average thrilling plot to another level.

Brittany Runs a Marathon

You need comedy in life to truly live it – Brittany Runs a Marathon is well-written and clever. It ponders on our relationship with everything we’re obsessed with – food, exercise, and body image, etc. Jillian Bell steps in to play the role of Brittany who is advised by her doctor to lose weight by cutting down all the junk and making subtle but important lifestyle changes. Next thing you know, she starts running – something we all like watching on screen but not doing practically ourselves. But hey, this movie is quite inspirational and will compel you to take the first step.


We love Dakota Johnson! She will surprise you in this fantastically woven film by Luca Guadagnino. It’s got suspense, bleak horror, and an art-house vibe. Watch this movie to go down the rabbit hole of a reputable Berlin dance school Dakota will be mentored by a majestic teacher and it will be twisted and freaky. The dancers will be uncomfortably flexible, and as the movie moves forward, you’ll witness the addition of new contortions to body horror. However, it’s a long movie with two and a half hours running time. There are some spectacular, jaw-dropping sequences that will blow your mind!

The Lost City of Z

The movie is based on the life of Percy Fawcett – a British adventurer. You’ll get to see the Amazon Rainforest where the man is searching for an ancient lost city. If the general setup f the film isn’t enticing enough, you must know that Robert Pattinson, Charlie Hunnam and Tom Holland are also in this film. Of course, the movie has missed a few things, like the overall pace of the film is slow. However, the intense slow motion will only add to the enthralling psychological layers.

Manchester by the Sea

This movie will break your heart into a million pieces! The performances are heartbreaking – each character experiences a terrible loss that is almost impossible to overcome. It’s one of those punch-in-the-gut kinds of stories. Once you’re done with the movie, the feeling will stay with you. It’s definitely an unforgettable storyline and beautiful cinematography.

The Handmaiden

You must’ve heard of this movie on social media but nothing will beat the first-hand experience. This movie carries insane twists and turns and exquisite thrilling sequences. The movie has some explicit scenes so make sure you don’t watch it with family because some moments can be uncomfortable. There is a Japanese heiress and a pickpocket partner– sounds strange? So just give it a watch! Look, if you enjoyed watching Parasite, it’s time you delve into other Korean movies and enjoy heartland films.


Adam Driver is one of the most underrated actors of Hollywood. He’s done some fantastic films in the last few years and the man must get appreciation from mainstream media. Now here’s why you should watch this movie – it’s humorous and an easy watch. Driver is playing the role of Paterson who is a bus driver. He likes listening to stories and taking his dog out for walks. He is wise beyond his years and his personal setbacks only add to his character.
