Between Hulu, Netflix, HBO NOW, and Amazon, selecting which streaming service to use can feel a little like Game of Thrones: A small group of worthy contenders with genuine claims to the throne, armed with an arsenal of fire content, are all fighting for the right to automatically take a small fee out of your bank account every month. Depending on the size of your wallet, it could become a matter of having to pick just one. And, the quest of comparing the massive list of offerings on each service is a massive undertaking that changes constantly. It's a daunting task. But don’t worry, because that’s exactly what we are here for.
For years now, Amazon Video in particular has been making strategic moves to claim its spot as king of the streaming services, and with all the recent competition the spot is truly theirs for the taking. As far as TV goes, Amazon has a huge stake in the game with its stellar original content (the stand-outs include Transparent, Fleabag, and One Mississippi). But Amazon is also definitely serious in its commitment to providing a wide array of great movies for instant streaming. Case in point: Amazon has procured the rights to stream freakin’ Moonlight. Like, Academy Award Winner for Best Picture Moonlight! The company also funded last year’s Manchester by the Sea, and it became the first movie from a streaming service to be nominated for Best Picture. Even besides original content, though, Amazon has curated a healthy selection of blockbuster hits and indie flicks that will keep you entertained for hours. It seems Jeff Bezos has his sights on total world domination, and it’s hard to put up a fight when the selection is this good.
Here is a list of the best movies on Amazon Prime you can watch with just the click of a button.
