Movies on Amazon Prime Video
No matter how you feel this week, you may find the perfect movie in Amazon Prime’s labyrinth-like movie library. This month, from Saving Private Ryan to 127 hours, Napoleon Dynamite and Hotel Transylvania: expand the spectrum with some of the most intense dramas ever shot at Transformers. Netflix has all the glory about streaming services, but most people don’t even know that Prime Video comes with Prime membership, so a nice pillow to hide while watching Predator.
But first you have to decide what you really want to see. That’s why we update our list of the best movies on Amazon Prime every week. Each film has its own expertise and Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, and IMDb.
- The Terminator:
With so many sequels, reboots, adaptations, and other ephemeras produced, James Cameron’s original Terminator movie was, as our reviewer said, a “talented b movie.” It is easy to forget. A director who knows great core ideas, carefully selected casts, and how to make money. Linda Hamilton is charismatic and likable. Sarah Connor is the woman who discovered the cyborg (horrible Arnold Schwarzenegger) from the future sent to hunt her down.
- 2 Days in New York:
Julie Delpy, who plays the female leader in Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy, created her own couple series in 2007 “2 Days in Paris, Lovers” and this hilarious sequel. She creates a contrasting story for her cheeky and neurotic French woman and her Brooklyn boyfriend, often played by the slightly understated Chris Rock. Then we see their unstable and balanced relationship smash under the stress of the visiting family. It’s a romantic comedy, a comedy of manners, the politeness of family interactions is shortened by its subtext, and relationships bend until they collapse.
- The Prestige:
During the first and second pranks at Batman, director Christopher Nolan slipped into this curvy stylish exercise with a sleight of hand. This time, the term “trick” literally means. In Prestige, Nolan tells the story of two stages of magicians in London in the 1890s, where friendly rivals become tense and deadly. Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale are the protagonists, properly intriguing and deceiving. Outstanding supporting characters include Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, Rebecca Hall, and David Bowie.
- Do the right thing:
Spike Lee wrote, directed and starred in this drama about rising racial tensions on the hottest summer days. Lee tells his story in Brooklyn’s block when a small dispute at a local pizzeria escalated into a full-blown riot, but it’s not just a dispute. When violence begins, he fills the frame with liveliness and humor that makes it look like an intestinal kick. Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Samuel L. Jackson, Giancarlo Esposito, John Turturro and Rosie Perez were selected as four-star casts, and Danny Aiello was a complex job as a pizzeria owner. Nominated for the Academy Award.
- The Red shoes:
Great British directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger have directed this fascinating drama about ballet, with a rough introduction to Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales. Combining behind-the-scenes drama practices with the opera sentiment of the dance itself, the filmmaker (and screenwriter Keith Winter) is between the company’s powerful owner (Anton Walbrook) and … the composer. Tells the story of a captive ballerina (Moirasialer, Divine) She loves (Marius Goling). Our critics considered it to be “a visual and emotional understanding of all the elegance, rhythm and power of ballet.”
- House of Games:
The acclaimed playwright David Mamet made his directorial debut in the story and trajectory of this extremely sharp, “surprisingly evil” scammer. Joe Mantegna is inspiring as a master of card bluffing, sleight of hand, and other mind manipulation. Lindsay Crouse is a cool psychiatrist who has been fascinated by his world, and his observations immediately sympathize with him. Mamet uses thriller tools-a gun, a briefcase full of money, and a big score to complete-but the real thrill is in his dialogue, and every line has at least two meanings. And all interactions are loaded like a gun.
- The sapphires:
Four young Aboriginal women form an unlikely but effective R & B quartet in a musical drama inspired by Wayne Blair’s true story. Chris O’Dowd (“Bride Made”) is convinced that he can make good money by touring a U.S. military base in Vietnam that belts Motown songs after hearing the group sing a country song at a talent show. Plays an Irish music promoter. Sounds like a simple rugged reach jukebox musical, but “The Sapphires” goes beyond the lyrics, following a thoughtful, often tragic thread about race, identity, colonialism, and war. Can be said. And beyond that, the song is God. AO Scott praised the movie’s “overflowing charm.”
- The thin red line:
The “memorable epic” adaptation of Terrence Malick’s James Jones novel (dotted with fragments of another novel “From Here to Eternity” in his novel) is his first film in 20 years and his He prolonged his departure from the tendency of the simple story of the badlands of his functional debut. Embarked. Sounds like the atrocities of the war story, but Malick pulls it off: of the prominent cast (including Sean Penn, Nick Norti, Woody Harrellson, Jared Lett, and many others). With the help, he makes a movie that is intoxicated with the possibilities that beauty and bloodshed can coexist.
- Train to Busan:
Riding a train speeding up to possible safety, this zombie apocalypse thriller directed by South Korean director Yeon Sang-ho is a relentless close combat. The pace is energetic, the make-up effect is compelling, and the storytelling is ruthless. (Don’t be too obsessed with anyone.) But it’s not all blood and noise. There is patience and careful preparation before the blood and mayhem orgy that leads to an amazing emotional outburst at the end of the story. Our reviewers praised the “energetic set piece”, feeling it “often cluttered, but never confusing”.
- Love and Friendship:
It become handiest a rely of time earlier than Whit Stillman, the author and director of such literate comedies as “Metropolitan” and “Barcelona,” tailored Jane Austen, whose dissections of upper-magnificence relationships had constantly been an influence. This “howlingly funny” growth on Austen`s novella “Lady Susan” merges their voices seamlessly, with Kate Beckinsale`s sly, scheming heroine, the Lady Susan Vernon, imposing a tone of pleased irreverence.
After a long time of extraordinarily benign diversifications of Austen`s novels, “Love and Friendship” is a reminder that her paintings is a part of the culture of lacerating British comedy, and this whip-clever model favors slashing wit and ruthless gamesmanship over swooning romance.
