From slashers to underrated new rom-coms, here are the best movies to watch on Prime Video.

Prime Video has all the cinematic goodness you could ever hope for, meaning you can transport yourself from your living room into hundreds of fun (or scary) worlds whenever you feel like it.

There are, of course, the classics, and it is chock full of them. Prime Video hosts the Lord of the Rings films, the Bond films, Cruel Intentions, and all the nostalgic rom-coms you could want (When Harry Met Sally!).

But those are obvious — so here is a list of more modern films, Prime originals and some must-watch cultural moments you can enjoy from the comfort of your couch.


Yes, this is a Ben Affleck and Matt Damon movie about a shoe.

But it’s a really, really good Ben Affleck and Matt Damon movie about a really, really good shoe. 

Air is about Nike reps trying to clinch the deal with Michael Jordan to launch his first line of basketball shoes in the 80s. 

Damon plays Sonny Vaccaro, a maverick Nike executive who sets his sights on Jordan to revitalise the company’s dying basketball division. Obviously, we know how the story goes (and this is just about shoes, so the stakes are not particularly high), but Sonny’s passion will have you rooting for a man hellbent on making millions of dollars for a multi-multi-million-dollar shoe company.

And the movie has a secret weapon in the incomparable Viola Davis as Deloris Jordan, the mother of the basketball GOAT, who is, as per usual, just incredible.
