The Best Movies On Amazon Prime: Watching a movie is like therapy nowadays. With all the things going on in the world, Cinema came to us like an escape route. 2 hours of entertainment will allow us to forget all the other things happening in the world.

Last year had an impact on cinema too, rather than focusing on action and CGI, the storytellers decided to focus on authenticity. OTT platforms like Netflix and Amazon are more important than ever now.

They are acquiring more and more movies and shows and adding them to their library. Selecting what to watch is one of the hardest things to do, so here is a list of the best movies on Prime you can watch and enjoy.

The Best Movies on Amazon Prime


Let’s start this list with a very underrated film. People don’t rate this movie and I don’t know why. It is one of the best comedy movies of all time. Little Trivia:- This movie has three endings and was a flop because of that.

Each hall showed different endings of the movie and fans were really confused. Other than that movie is a real treat for comedy fans, the overwriting really helped the movie. It is on Amazon Prime with all the endings so watch it as soon as possible. 

Shutter Island

Are you into slow movies? If yes, this movie is for you. Leo should have won the Oscar for this movie and you can’t change my mind. It is still one of the best standout performances of his career.

The movie is a perfect example of a slow-burning experience. The plot moves so slowly yet so perfectly that when it reaches the climax, you will be in awe.

The Big Sick

This movie is everything I want it to be. The film is simple, easy to watch, and is captivating, and ambitious at the same time. When I watched it on the big screen, there were only 7-8 people other than me sitting there.

And that is sad because we don’t appreciate good movies when it comes out. This movie is pure magic. The performances are stellar, The music is perfect and I can’t focus on how good the plot is.

The only downside this movie face was its direction but it doesn’t take anything away from the movie in any sense. 

Fight Club

Fight Club defines David Fincher’s filmography perfectly. It is so twisted and so unique that it is regarded as one of the best movies of all time. This movie is not perfect in any sense. It has so many flaws, but the good parts are so good that you can’t help but fall in love with this movie.

Brad Pitt gave a career-defining performance, Edward Norton and Helena shows why they are the very best. Saying that it is one of the best movies on Prime won’t be an exaggeration.

Batman Begins 

Let’s talk about the first movie of the trilogy that changed the whole superhero genre. The Dark Knight might be the most famous because of the Joker, but this is where it all started. In a way, this might be the best Batman movie.

All the villains get their parts to be scary and impactful. The origin story of Batman was rock solid, and for the first time, Gotham felt like Gotham in a live-action movie, rather than poor man’s New York. 


Let’s keep the Superhero trend going. The first movie of MCU where it all came together. The movie is nothing to write home about but it is still a very fun watch. This was the start of Thor being a badass until he was nerfed in Ragnarok and Endgame.

Robert Downey Jr. showed his perfect comedic timing, Chris Evans gave a stellar performance and Scarlett Johansson stole every man’s heart.

Wonder Woman 

Let’s end the superhero series with the best superhero origin movie. Yes, it is better than Black Panther. This movie pointed DCEU in the right direction and it hasn’t looked back since.

The cast is perfect, the Hans-Zimmer music rules, the comedic scenes are really really good, and doesn’t feel forced, and the romance arc between Diana and Steve was a real surprise.

Usually, love angles in these kinds of movies feel forced and cringe, but that was not the case with this movie. If you can’t find any reason to watch the movie, just watch it for Gal Gadot. 

Gangs Of Wasseypur 

Gangs Of Wasseypur is the only movie to feature on the Guardian’s list of top 100 movies of the 21st century and that says something. Not only it is one of the best Indian movies out there, but it is also definitely one of the best movies in the whole world.

The thing that makes this movie unique from other gangster dramas is the humor.  Which is completely realistic and gives this movie more credibility. 

The Best Korean Drama On Netflix


Newton does a job that other Indian movies fail to do. Showing you the reality. It doesn’t feed you with the false hope that everything will be alright at the end or something. It might be the rawest and authentic Indian movie.

And that is why it is so good. Rajkumar Rao is brilliant as always and other cast members give solid performances too. This one is definitely one of The best movies on Amazon Prime and you all should go and watch it now. 

The Godfather

The Godfather is considered the best film of all time. And it sure feels like it. Over the years so many parodies of the movie have been released that it might not be as impactful as it once was, but it is still good.

Legends like Al Pacino Marlon Brando, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and Diane Keaton gave legendary performances. The direction is just outstanding and we can’t stress enough the quality of the plot. It is one of the Best movies on Prime to watch, so do yourself a favor and watch it.

Hera Pheri 

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with the best Bollywood comedy movie of all time. There might not be a single person in India who doesn’t know about this movie. This movie was so ahead of its time.

Even after 20 years since its release, it’s still fresh in the mind of every person. This movie dominated the Indian meme scene for almost a decade. It is a must-watch movie for all the comedy genre fans. 

Mad Max: Fury Road 

What a wild ride this movie is. George Miller is the master of telling a story without dialogues. Just watch the movie and you will know what I am talking about. The cinematography is amazing, Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron were amazing.

The action sequences were well choreographed and executed. This movie feels fresh from all the generic action movies we usually watch. Give it a try and you will definitely love it.

Knives Out 

Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer, Ana De Armas, Katherine Langford, what more do I need to say to sell this movie. I just wish that they re-release the movie in the halls, so I can go and watch it. Knives Out are quirky, funny, thrilling, and a delight.

This is one of the Best movies on Prime in its genre and it will confuse you, surprise you, scare you, and in the end will satisfy you as a watcher. 

Manchester By The Sea

The movie that made Casey Affleck a star overnight. He has always been an amazing actor, but this was a career-defining performance. This might be the most gut-wrenching movie you will watch. Just a warning, if you are watching this movie, keep tissues ready at your side, because those tears will not stop.

It is one of the best horror movies out there. The drama and execution were brilliant and at no point, you will be bored. The climax might have been the best thing I have ever seen in horror movies. It is one of the best movies to watch on Amazon Prime or in general. So go and watch it.

The Lighthouse

Both William Defoe and Robert Pattinson gave performances of their life. Robert Pattinson showed why he was selected to play the role of Batman. The music just adds to the tension, They really went all out to make it feel like the 1800s. The movie is slow and that is done deliberately. I don’t know how none of the actors won Oscars for their role, because they deserved it.
