IMDb: 7.2/10

Clive Owen, Julia Roberts, Jude Law, and Natalie Portman star in this relationship drama from director Mike Nichols about two couples sharing a relationship-ending secret. Roberts plays Anna, a photographer who makes a connection with Law’s Dan. Their attraction is complicated by Dan’s long-term relationship with Alice, a former stripper, and Anna’s recent marriage to Larry, a doctor. Everyone ends up hooking up with everyone else by the end of this thing, and as depressing as the overall message is when it comes to monogamy and commitment, the names attached act the hell out of it.

The 50 best movies on Amazon Prime Video Canada

NOW critics pick the best recent movies and essential classics available on the streaming platform right now


Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard kiss in Annette

Amazon Studios

Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard play celebrities in love in Leos Carax's Annette.

Of the thousands upon thousands of movies available to stream on Amazon Prime Video Canada, these are the movies we think are worth your time. NOW’s writers have spent weeks combing through the offerings to find some new arrivals, forgotten classics and canonical greats that are available at the tap of a tile, and we’ll be updating this post every month as movies cycle on and off the service. You’re welcome!

50/50

Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in this intentionally uncomfortable comedy about illness and mortality, based on screenwriter and real-life Rogen buddy Will Reiser’s own experiences. Gordon-Levitt plays Adam, a journalist diagnosed with a rare spinal tumour in his late 20s, who undergoes chemo and counselling while his best friend Kyle (Rogen provides some very inappropriate moral support. It’s a shaggy and entertaining buddy movie that just happens to have life-or-death stakes, with great work from Gordon-Levitt, Rogen and Anna Kendrick – as Adam’s rookie therapist – as three people who are all in way over their heads and doing their best to deal. It’s also Rogen’s first project with director Jonathan Levine, with whom he’d make The Night Before (co-starring Gordon-Levitt!) and Long Shot. 

Affliction

Nick Nolte gives one of his finest performances as a small-town sheriff disintegrating under the weight of a murder investigation – and his own repressed history of abuse – in Paul Schrader’s chilly adaptation of Russell Banks’s novel, which was doomed to cult status by a botched release plan that kept it shelved for more than a year after its premiere at the 1997 Venice Film Festival. It’s possible that the U.S. distributor wanted to put some space between it and that year’s other, much more acclaimed Banks adaptation, Atom Egoyan’s The Sweet Hereafter; that happened, but by the time the movie arrived it was treated like an afterthought. Still, reviews were strong enough to see Nolte and James Coburn nominated for Oscars for best actor and best supporting actor, respectively; Coburn won his, while Nolte lost to Roberto Benigni in Life Is Beautiful. We’re still mad about that.

A photo from the movie Ammonite

Ammonite 

Francis Lee’s period romance – which casts Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan as two very different women who forge an unexpected connection in a remote seaside village in 19th century Dorset – had the misfortune to arrive on the heels of Céline Sciamma’s masterpiece Portrait Of A Lady On Fire. But with a little more distance, people might be impressed with Lee’s film as well: as real-life paleontologist Mary Anning, Winslet is as good as she’s ever been, her clipped line readings suggesting a lifetime spent denying herself in the name of a larger duty, while Ronan finds a steely determination as the ailing Charlotte Murchison, whose sea cure leads to a very different sort of recovery. And as he did in his shattering first feature God’s Own Country, Lee isolates his characters in natural settings and lets the story play out in his actors’ faces and bodies; there’s dialogue, but it’s rarely necessary. Everything we need to understand Ammonite is right there on the screen.

Amy Winehouse claps in front of a cake

Amy

Like his earlier film about racing driver Ayrton Senna, Asif Kapadia’s documentary about the short life and tragic death of Amy Winehouse tells its subject’s story entirely through archival footage, set to a soundtrack of present-day audio interviews with friends and family. But he also finds the real person inside the tabloid caricature, and that’s where Amy becomes a work of profound empathy. It brings Winehouse back to life, and forces us to lose her all over again.

Adam Driver in Annette

Annette

French director Leos Carax’s English-language musical drama is about a misanthropic standup comedian (Adam Driver) and superstar soprano (Marion Cotillard) whose tabloid love affair results in a puppet child prodigy, the titular baby Annette. Based on a story by Ron and Russell Mael of Sparks (who also did the music), Annette is a manic blend of absurd comedy, operatic melodrama and gothic horror that creates a heightend fantasy world to exaggerate the ways celebrity mythologizing can become very real – and lucrative – for some. It’s full of Carax’s typically arresting setpieces and sequences and possibly Adam Driver’s Adam Driver-est performance.

Back To The Future

Most directors would give their eye teeth to make a popular entertainment as smart, funny and exciting as Back To The Future, a practically perfect comedy starring Michael J. Fox as 80s kid Marty McFly, who’s zapped back to 1955 and must make sure his teenage parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson) fall in love as scheduled – while also convincing the younger version of his mad-scientist pal (Christopher Lloyd) to send him back home. Robert Zemeckis’s box-office champion manages to be both heartfelt and thrilling, with wonderful work from all concerned – and Thomas F. Wilson playing one of the all-time great buttheads as the bully Biff Tannen. Seriously, why haven’t you seen this yet?

Battle Royale

Netflix may have Squid Game, but Amazon has the movie that inspired it: Kinji Fukasaku’s dystopian 2000 masterwork, set in a near-future Japan where once a year, a class of schoolchildren is selected for transport to an island arena, fitted with explosive collars and pitted against each other until only one is left alive. Featuring unrelenting violence and dark comedy – with screen legend Takeshi Kitano balancing the two in his performance as the kids’ morally ambiguous teacher, who’s also the “host” of the murder game – it was slapped with an NC-17 rating in the U.S. and unavailable for years to North American audiences, emerging only in certain video stores that dared to import it. Now you can just click “play” and watch it whenever! Isn’t progress wonderful?

The Big Sick

The Big Sick

Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon had a classic meet-cute: they met, they clicked, she went almost immediately into hospital with a life-threatening malady that led to her being placed in a medically induced coma, leaving new maybe-boyfriend Kumail to sit and worry with her parents for days on end. Obviously everything worked out, and years later they turned their ordeal into a screenplay that lets Nanjiani play a version of himself opposite Zoe Kazan as Emily, with Holly Hunter and Ray Romano as her parents. The result is a sweet, prickly tweak of the romantic comedy, with director Michael Showalter keeping an eye out for moments of genuine feeling among the cast. Check it out to see what Nanjiani looked like before he got all jacked for Marvel’s Eternals.

Brittany Runs A Marathon 

Jillian Bell is the eponymous hero of Paul Downs Colaizzo’s first feature: a hard-living Brooklynite who resolves to get into shape after a diagnosis of terrible health, only to find herself backsliding at every opportunity. What could have been little more than a goofy comedy turns out to be a little more thoughtful than its elevator pitch, as Brittany’s situation plays out realistically rather than as a string of workout jokes. (Bell lost some 40 pounds over the course of the shoot, but we never get the feeling we’re watching a stunt.) The characters who enter her orbit – played by Never Have I Ever’s Utkarsh Ambudkar and Bell’s Sword Of Trust co-star Michaela Watkins – are similarly complex people rather than types. And even though Brittany Runs A Marathon goes exactly where it says it will, it gets there on its own prickly terms. Just like its hero.

Call Her Ganda

Call Her Ganda

PJ Raval’s doc about a trans woman in the Philippines who was murdered by a U.S. Marine in 2014 is an unflinching and eye-opening investigation into the emotional, physical and political toll continued American military presence is having in that country. It’s clear that Jennifer Laude’s killer is a Marine, but the country’s Visiting Forces Agreement essentially grants immunity to American officers, and the ensuing trial becomes a flash point that blows up politically. Raval makes clear and compelling connections between personal stories and institutional violence. This is a film that doesn’t shy away from challenging anyone’s attitudes about trans people and the ongoing effects of colonialism.

Celeste Jesse Forever

Celeste And Jesse Forever 

Hollywood couldn’t figure out what to do with Rashida Jones, so after four years on Parks And Recreation the actor and her writing partner Will McCormack came up with her own star vehicle: this bittersweet comedy, directed by Lee Toland Krieger, about two exes who haven’t quite figured out how to disconnect from one another. Andy Samberg is perfectly cast as Jesse, who’s kind of a lightweight but comfortable within his own sphere, and Jones is simply terrific as Celeste – a conflicted, confused young woman just beginning to realize she isn’t as okay with moving on as she first thought. In the middle of all the rom-com packaging, Jones delivers a great dramatic performance.

Coherence

The premise of James Ward Byrkit’s ingenious 2013 film is very simple: eight friends have gotten together for a dinner party in northern California, just as a passing comet knocks out the planet’s power – and maybe also cracks the multiverse open. (Maybe.) Eight actors – including Emily Baldoni, filmmaker Lorene Scafaria and Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s Nicholas Brendon (though in this reality he’s the former star of Roswell) – improvise their way through a series of mind-bending complications involving glowsticks, identical handwritten notes and the paradox of Schrödinger’s cat. Just watch it, and see if you can unscramble the puzzle before they do. Not that it’ll help, necessarily.

A photo from the movie Colossal

Colossal

Nacho Vigalondo’s 2016 mashup of kaiju movie and recovery drama is like nothing else around, with Anne Hathaway as an alcoholic New Yorker who returns to her childhood town to dry out and decide whether to patch things up with her boyfriend (Dan Stevens). Once there, she runs into an old friend (Jason Sudeikis) and drinks some more, and the next day she wakes up to discover a giant monster has stomped through Seoul – and she’s somehow connected to it. Hathaway is terrific, riding Vigalondo’s metaphor for all it’s worth – giant-monster rampages equating nicely to the damage her character does to herself on a bender – and if you only know Sudeikis as the fount of human kindness that is Theodore Lasso, you’ll never be able to look at him the same way again after this one.

Dead Ringers

David Cronenberg’s 1988 masterwork – a tragedy about twin gynecologists who descend into addiction and madness after one falls in love with a neurotic actor – marked the end of his early period, defined by stately perversity, deranged science and unflinching body horror. But it also signaled the beginning of Cronenberg’s pure-artist phase, when financial and creative conditions lined up to allow him to make complex, challenging projects like this, Naked Lunch and Crash. It’s also the film that best defines his style as a filmmaker: Dead Ringers is beautiful, grotesque, elegant and ultimately mournful, sometimes all at once. That it should also be built around the magnificent dual performance of Jeremy Irons – with invaluable support from Geneviève Bujold as the woman who comes between the doomed Mantle brothers – is almost a grace note.

The Farewell

The Farewell

Director Lulu Wang’s second feature is a thoughtful, moving meditation on the burden of family expectations, with a revelatory Awkwafina as a struggling Brooklyn artist who flies back to Changchun to join her family for a cousin’s wedding – which has been hastily organized to let everyone spend some time with grandmother Nai Nai (Shuzhen Zhou), who’s been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer but not informed of her condition. Wang, who based the story on her own relationship with her grandmother, gives every character some measure of depth and history, and in doing so she gets at something else: the way all children are powerless in the face of their parents’ decisions, and how that affects us as adults.

The Father 

Anthony Hopkins won his second Oscar for his alternately flailing and furious performance in Florian Zeller’s brutal adaptation of his stage play about an aging Londoner who can’t understand why the world around him refuses to make sense – and why people keep trying to get him to leave his beloved flat. (Olivia Colman, Rufus Sewell, Imogen Poots, Olivia Williams and Mark Gatiss co-star, but it’s Hopkins’s show all the way: he’s in every scene, and practically every shot, of this meticulously crafted film. (Zeller won an Oscar for adapted screenplay, too. 

First Reformed

Paul Schrader’s reinterpretation of Robert Bresson’s Diary Of A Country Priest for the age of the American mega-church is his best film in decades: like Martin Scorsese’s Silence, it’s the work of a man who’s spent a very long time thinking about his subject. Here, it’s the conflict between modern evangelical Christianity and the actual teachings of Christ, as experienced by a tormented priest (Ethan Hawke, in a career-best performance) trying to minister to his congregation while enduring his own profound suffering. It’s brilliant cinema.

The F Word

The F Word

Miss the Toronto of 2013? Check out this love letter to the city, written by Elan Mastai and directed by Michael Dowse, which riffs on When Harry Met Sally… to tell the story of an emotionally prickly young man (Daniel Radcliffe) who meets a delightful young woman (Zoe Kazan), discovers she’s in a long-term relationship and resigns himself to the friend zone – for a while, anyway. It’s funny, sharp and sweet, with Radcliffe and Kazan exchanging rapid-fire dialogue that they also share with a lively circle of supporting players including Mackenzie Davis, Rafe Spall, Megan Park, an unbilled, terrific Sarah Gadon and a pre-superstardom Adam Driver. And Dowse and DP Rogier Stoffers use the city’s streets, stores and spaces to create a sense of constant promise, all thrumming to the beat of AC Newman’s infectious score. 

Greenland

Greenland

Gerard Butler and his Angel Has Fallen director Ric Roman Waugh reunite for a ground-level thriller about the end of the world. A comet is on a collision course with the Earth, its impact expected to cause an extinction-level event in a day or so, and Butler’s character – a structural engineer – must race against the clock to get himself and his family (Morena Baccarin, Roger Dale Floyd) to a secure shelter. The problem? They’re in Atlanta, the shelter is in Greenland, and there are like a billion obstacles standing between them and survival. Buckle up.

The Hunt For Red October 

John McTiernan’s 1990 adaptation of the Tom Clancy cold-war novel is one of the very best studio action movies of its age, juggling multiple characters and a complex storyline without ever missing a trick. In his only outing as Jack Ryan, Alec Baldwin layers some entirely understandable notes of self-consciousness into Clancy’s everyman hero, while Sean Connery is all gruff conviction as Marko Ramius, the Soviet sub captain who’s either preparing to nuke America or defect to it. Really, the entire cast (which includes Sam Neill, James Earl Jones, Scott Glenn, Stellan Skarsgård, Courtney B. Vance, a pre-GOP Fred Dalton Thompson and half a dozen That Guy character actors) is perfectly on point in every role, and McTiernan – in concert with his Die Hard cinematographer Jan de Bont – makes the whole thing flow like a symphony. 

I Care A Lot

I Care A Lot

You know how you’ve been waiting for Rosamund Pike to re-embrace her inner amoral monster? It’s been far too long since Gone Girl, we deserve a treat. This arch thriller from writer/director J Blakeson (The Disappearance Of Alice Creed) casts Pike as Marla Grayson, a professional legal guardian who preys on vulnerable senior citizens – dumping them into care homes, selling off their assets and moving on to her next mark. And then, one day, she snares the wrong victim – a grandmotherly widow (Dianne Wiest) whose institutionalization leads her son (Peter Dinklage) to declare war on Marla. Also, as TIFF viewers can attest, this is a comedy.

I’m Your Woman

Julia Hart’s Miss Stevens and Fast Color played long games with high-school movies and superhero tropes, using viewers’ expectations of those narratives against them. Her third feature remixes the 70s crime picture in much the same way, following a wife and mother (Rachel Brosnahan of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) who finds herself on the run as a result of her husband’s actions, forced to navigate a world she doesn’t understand at all. Brosnahan’s performance is unlike anything you’ve seen from her before, and the relatively unknown British actor Arinzé Kene (Crazyhead, Flacks) provides crackling support as the enigmatic criminal determined to keep her safe.

Ingrid Goes West

Aubrey Plaza gives a hell of a performance in Matt Spicer’s unnerving tale of an outsider who becomes an influencer, playing the eponymous social-media stalker who goes from trolling the Instagram of a Venice Beach photographer (Elisabeth Olsen) to insinuating herself into the lives of her quarry and her artist husband (Wyatt Russell). Before too long she’s a guest in their home, and that’s when things get really complicated. Imagine the predatory tension of Single White Female crossed with the new-BFF energy of I Love You, Man, with unexpectedly textured performances from all concerned. No Time To Die’s Billy Magnussen is in there too, as is O’Shea Jackson as a screenwriter who channels all his creativity into his Batman obsession.

Jolt

The new thriller from Hysteria director Tanya Wexler stars Kate Beckinsale as a woman who… you know what, we’re just going to quote the synopsis here: “due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device.” And then she gets framed for her boyfriend’s murder, forcing her to go on the run to find the real killer and clear her name. Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Bobby Cannavale and Laverne Cox are all in it, hopefully having a good time, and after five Underworld movies it’ll be nice to see Beckinsale do action stuff without all the dopey vampire-assassin trappings.

Kanehsatake- 270 Years Of Resistance

Kanehsatake: 270 Years Of Resistance

As Alanis Obomsawin marks 50 years of urgent, impassioned filmmaking, there’s no better time to revisit her 1993 doc Kanehsatake: 270 Years Of Resistance, which chronicles the Mohawk standoff at Oka, Quebec, that lasted 78 days in the summer of 1990, bringing tensions between the local Indigenous peoples and the Canadian government to the boiling point. Obomsawin was there for all of it, capturing people on both sides of the conflict at their best and worst, and breaking up her reportage with social and historical context that explores the centuries of political betrayals and resentment that led to the current situation. Writer/director Tracey Deer’s Beans lightly fictionalizes the same events; Obomsawin’s film shows us that Deer isn’t exaggerating either the rage or the ugliness of the showdown in the slightest.

Kill Bill, Vol. 1

Both halves of Quentin Tarantino’s 70s-inflected revenge epic are tremendous popcorn entertainment – and both are currently streaming on Amazon – but the first half is the best half, following Uma Thurman’s entirely justified Bride as she begins her single-minded quest for vengeance, with David Carradine’s Bill glimpsed only in flashbacks or present as a disembodied voice for the devastating cliffhanger. It’s gloriously stylized action, with beautifully choreographed set pieces riffing on the pulpy Japanese gangster and samurai movies Tarantino gorged himself upon as a kid. The Bride gets more layered in the second volume, but there’s something truly wonderful about the economy of Thurman’s performance here: she’s simultaneously aware of the movie’s cartoonishness while playing things absolutely straight. And Lucy Liu has a blast matching her tone as formidable opponent O-Ren Ishii.

The King Of Comedy

After the triumph of Raging Bull, Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro re-teamed for this sinister character study starring De Niro as Rupert Pupkin, a wannabe comedian who becomes fixated on popular talk-show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis), which ultimately leads to Pupkin taking Langford hostage. Marketed as a comedy despite being not funny in the slightest – it’s really more of a companion piece to Taxi Driver – the movie’s best known nowadays as the inspiration for about a third of Todd Phillips’s Joker, which tipped its hat by casting De Niro himself as the Jerry Langford character. But Joker doesn’t come close to capturing the seething sense of envy and desperation upon which The King Of Comedy is built. This is the real stuff.

Knives Out

Knives Out

Rian Johnson’s self-aware spin on the stuffy old Agatha Christie murder mystery is a delight from beginning to end, and it rewards repeat viewings, since you can just enjoy watching Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Michael Shannon and Don Johnson rip into their roles (and each other) while Ana de Armas holds the centre – and our sympathy – as Marta, the understandably panicked nurse trying to stay one step ahead of Daniel Craig’s peacocking investigator Benoit Blanc. Johnson has announced a sequel, hopefully revolving around the revelation that Blanc was really Joe Bang from Logan Lucky all along.

The Lighthouse

Robert Eggers’s delirious period drama is a study in simple character conflict, starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as two 19th-century lighthouse keepers going slowly mad on an unforgiving New England isle. Sure, it’s shot in black-and-white 35mm and framed in the squarish aspect ratio of the silent era, but after our shared pandemic experience its concerns now seem entirely contemporary: time slows to a crawl, going outside doesn’t fix anything and the other person’s habits are starting to grate on you. The saving grace is that The Lighthouse is a comedy, with Eggers milking Dafoe and Pattinson’s anti-chemistry for huge, weird laughs – and using that laughter to disarm us regarding his larger intentions with the narrative. Just enjoy the ride, and watch out for angry seagulls.

Little Women

Little Women

Greta Gerwig’s Little Women might seem like just another generic costume drama – and yet another adaptation of the much-filmed Louisa May Alcott novel. It’s anything but. Recognizing that the novel’s Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) is herself an aspiring writer, the director has made the movie self-reflexive, bookending the narrative to tell the tale about how Little Women itself was published. Gradually, through deft, psychologically weighty flashbacks that feel true to the way memories work, we get the story we know so well about Jo and her siblings’ attempts to forge identities while being raised by their tireless mother. This isn’t a cozy, sentimental movie, but a fierce, angry look at the constraints on women during Alcott’s era – and, of course, our own.

Lovers Rock Small Axe

Lovers Rock

The best entry in British filmmaker Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology series, Lovers Rock is also one of the best dramatic movies about club culture. The movie methodically shows us the collective energy and labour that goes into throwing a blues party in 80s London and then ditches us in the middle of the dancefloor – and the drama – like a fairweather wingman. It’s a short, deliberately paced and richly atmospheric film that enjoyably elucidates how dancing can be a form of rebellion, personally and politically.

Lost City of Z

The Lost City Of Z

It seems strange that a filmmaker as distinctly American as James Gray would make a period drama about an Englishman who spent most of his life obsessed with finding the eponymous Amazonian ruin. Stranger still that it should result in the best film of his career, lacing an intimate character study into a sprawling old-school epic and finally giving Charlie Hunnam and Sienna Miller roles that make them feel like proper movie stars.

Macgruber

There are movies that disappoint, there are movies that underperform, and then there are movies that flat-out bomb. In May of 2010, Will Forte and Jorma Taccone’s deadpan salute to the films of Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal, and reveled in their own clichés with none of that annoying ironic distance you get from 21st century action heroes – was deemed a failure, swept under the rug and never spoken of again. Until the DVD came out, and people realized that Forte and Taccone – and Kristen Wiig and Ryan Phillippe and Maya Rudolph and Val Kilmer and everyone else involved with this genius spoof of late 80s action cheese – had made a damn masterpiece. Don’t believe us? You have 10 seconds to hit play and find out.

The Master

Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2012 drama tells the story of a battle of wills between an unstable WWII veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) and a charismatic writer (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who claims to have discovered the cure for pretty much everything – as long as you do exactly what he says. Is it a fictionalization of L. Ron Hubbard’s development of Scientology? Some strange telepod fusion of John Ford’s WWII documentaries and Stanley Kubrick’s cinema of Earthbound alienation? Almost a decade later, The Master remains entirely its own thing, resisting all interpretations and explanations to focus almost exclusively on Phoenix’s sinewy performance and Hoffman’s megalomaniacal magnetism. Whatever Anderson is doing, just try to look away.

A still from the movie Minari

Minari

Set in the mid 80s, Lee Isaac Chung’s autobiographical drama follows a Korean family trying to start a farm in Arkansas. Named for the vegetable that flourishes in even the harshest of conditions, Minari is an unhurried, beautifully observed drama that invites us to live and breathe alongside its characters as they put down roots, worry about each other and find their way through a culture utterly alien to them. Steven Yeun is flinty and charismatic as the driven father; newcomer Alan S. Kim is a natural charmer as the young, impulsive David, who’s our guide to most of the drama. And while Chung doesn’t flinch from the darker aspects of this story, he always makes sure to show us where the light is. 

Monster Hunter

Having put their Resident Evil series to bed, videogame-adaptation power couple Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich turn their attention to another beloved Capcom creation, the one where players hunt monsters in a supernatural dimension. Jovovich plays Natalie Artemis, an Army ranger pulled with her team into the New World; Tony Jaa is Hunter, a merciless, resourceful warrior who becomes her ally. Together, they hunt monsters while Anderson sets up a new franchise. One with monsters! And hunting! And Ron Perlman!

One child Nation

One Child Nation

This jaw-dropping account of China’s birth control policy deservedly won the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at Sundance. Directors Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang impressively distill the major documentary genres of the past decade (memoir, investigative thriller, social history) into a film that lands like a gut punch. They capture the enormity of collective trauma in a variety of visual and emotional ways while posing difficult questions about nationalism and personal accountability versus structural conditions.

A photo from the movie One Night In Miami...

One Night In Miami…

Regina King’s directorial debut – adapted from the 2013 stage play by Kemp Powers – imagines an evening in the company of Cassius Clay (Eli Goree), Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge) and Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom, Jr.) in February, 1964, the night Clay beat Sonny Liston and became the world heavyweight champion. It’s an examination of celebrity, social responsibility and identity – as well as politics – played out between four Black cultural figures who understood one another’s circumstances as few others could.

Painter And The Thief

The Painter And The Thief

Benjamin Ree’s documentary about Czech artist Barbora Kysilkova and Norwegian addict Karl-Bertil Nordland – who in 2015 broke into an Oslo gallery with another man and stole two of Kysilkova’s best-known works in broad daylight – was one of the highlights of Hot Docs in 2020. It’s a gripping, thorny look at empathy and transference, framed through the bond that develops between an artist and her subject, neither of whom can quite articulate the nature of their relationship as it evolves over the three years Ree spends shooting them.

A photo from the movie Palm Springs, which hits Amazon Prime Video Canada in December 2020

Palm Springs

Palm Springs is a time-loop movie about a young woman named Sarah (Cristin Milioti) who gets stuck repeating the day of her sister’s wedding, over and over and over again. Worse, she’s stuck in there with Nyles (Andy Samberg), who’s been trapped in the loop for so long that he’s resigned to his fate. Nyles has no patience for Sarah’s existential horror; Sarah has no patience for Nyles’s over-it attitude. And the movie is a love story – a little gem of a romantic comedy, as well as a really clever variation on the Groundhog Day genre. Palm Springs could have been a fun little diversion, but it evolves into something so much more: a movie about relationships and commitment, and about growing with someone – and what it takes to choose to be a better person when the world doesn’t really care what you do.

A Serious Man

When people talk about Joel and Ethan Coen’s best films, this 2009 comedy rarely comes up – but it should. It’s the brothers’ most personal work, a clockwork farce built upon the premise that it might be possible for a mathematician to understand the mind of God and rooted in the Minnesota Jewish culture of their childhood. Michael Stuhlbarg is human punching bag Larry Gopnik, a put-upon academic whose entire world comes crashing down on him over the course of one awful week in 1967. 

Jane Adams in She Dies Tomorrow

She Dies Tomorrow

Imagine a world where depression is a contagious disease that overcomes even the most high-strung members of society. That’s the simple yet surprisingly hilarious premise of Amy Seimetz’s She Dies Tomorrow, an extremely dry comedy that uses clever shifts in perspective to heighten tension. The movie often feels like it is taking place underwater and is comprised of long, loaded pauses that give us lots of time to drink in Kate Lyn Sheil and Jane Adams’ subtly expressive performances.

Shirley

Shirley

Elisabeth Moss is a literary terror in director Josephine Decker’s fictional account of a specific period in the life of horror author Shirley Jackson. Best known for the New Yorker short story The Lottery, Shirley doesn’t exactly fit the gender-role expectations of the 1950s, and when a younger couple (Odessa Young, Logan Lerman) turn up, invited by her professor husband (Michael Stuhlbarg), the stage is set for a full-tilt dive into the writer’s interior life that finds Moss at her most unpredictable (coming off Her Smell, that’s saying something). Making a move to bigger-budget territory, Decker upends typical biopic conventions, exploring the couple’s relationship with a wild energy and intimate granularity.

Silence 

Martin Scorsese’s elegant, deliberately paced adaptation of Shûsaku Endô’s novel (which was previously filmed by Masahiro Shinoda in 1971) stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as Rodrigues and Garrpe, Portuguese Jesuits circa 1640 who travel to Japan in search of their vanished mentor, Father Ferreira (Liam Neeson). Garfield is revelatory as a naïve, prideful priest willing to sacrifice anything to stand on principle, but Issei Ogata (Yi Yi, Tony Takitani) is just as compelling as the Imperial inquisitor who becomes his nemesis: a man with unlimited patience and terrifying resolve. It’s a study of faith from the inside out, made by a man who’s far less certain about things than he used to be. And five years after its release, Silence feels like the crowning achievement of Scorsese’s career.

Stowaway

Director Joe Penna and editor Ryan Morrison made a splash with their Mads Mikkelsen survival drama Arctic. Now, they’re bringing their knack for tense, terse storytelling into space. Scarborough’s own Shamier Anderson – whom you may have seen in Wynonna Earp and Destroyer – stars as a NASA launch support engineer who’s accidentally included on Mars mission that’ll take two years to complete; Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim and Toni Collette are the astronauts who weren’t expecting a fourth crew member. And no, that’s not the only twist Penna and Morrison have up their sleeves.

Time

Time

Garrett Bradley’s documentary captures the emotional rippling-out effect of mass incarceration. The film is an intimate profile of the charismatic Sibil Richardson, a Louisiana, woman who is fighting to get her husband Rob released from a 60-year prison sentence for armed robbery (in which no one was hurt). But while she makes daily phone calls and advocates for prison abolition at speaking events, life continues. The Richardson family presents a strong, upwardly mobile front, but behind closed doors there is a lot of pain. Bradley uses slow zooms, a leisurely, jazzy piano score and black-and-white photography to show time is experienced differently but some people. It’s sharp and empathetic family portrait that subtly asks profound philosophical questions.

Train To Busan

Train To Busan

Yeon Sang-ho’s Train To Busan is the best fast-zombie picture since the Dawn Of The Dead remake. It has a particularly high concept: almost the entire film takes place on a speeding train travelling from Seoul to Busan, and its focus is on a handful of passengers trying to survive an outbreak already in progress.  Director Yeon efficiently establishes his characters, using instantly recognizable pairings – a workaholic father (Gong Yoo) and his young daughter, an expectant couple – to map out the conflicting motives that will drive his human drama. Visually, the action is exaggerated without ever tipping over into cartoonishness. Complications arise, panic escalates and things go terribly wrong in just the right way

The Tomorrow War

Chris McKay’s time-bending action adventure is basically Terminator in reverse, with soldiers from the year 2050 arriving in 2022 to warn us that the Earth of their time has been overtaken by alien chomp monsters, and only present-day humanity can stop them … by traveling to the future and joining the battle. Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski, Sam Richardson, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Mike Mitchell, Betty Gilpin and an extremely jacked J.K. Simmons come at their fairly straightforward genre roles from unexpected angles, and the action sequences are clever and engaging. And, of course, there are the chomp monsters. You can’t go wrong with chomp monsters.

Val Kilmer

Val

The actor Val Kilmer has been recording himself over the course of his entire life, accumulating hundreds of hours of footage on every film and video format imaginable. Organized into a feature-length narrative by directors Leo Scott and Poo Ting, and written and produced by Kilmer himself with his son Jack reading his father’s words in voiceover (Val’s own vocal cords are no longer up to the job) it’s a film of startling intimacy. All actors age on film, of course, but there’s something powerful about one specific actor owning his own deterioration. Kilmer was a singularly beautiful man in the first decade of his career, but he was also savvy enough about it to choose roles that pushed back against his built-in packaging. And in clips pulled from a lifetime of performance, we see that self-awareness over and over again, shaped in a tragic arc – but one that’s not self-pitying.

You Were Never Really Here 

Yeah, yeah, Joaquin Phoenix won his Oscar for Joker, but his definitive performance as a broken soul who finds purpose in violence arrived a year earlier, as the hero of Lynne Ramsay’s deconstructed revenge movie. Ramsay’s oblique adaptation of Jonathan Ames’s more straightforward novella about a finder of lost children infuses standard action beats with queasy dread and an unnerving ambiguity; more often than not, the worst things happen just off-screen, where we can conjure our own awful visuals to accompany the sounds of Phoenix’s trusty ball-peen hammer.

IMDb: 7.3/10

The 90s sure loved the “literary classics masquerading as teen dramas” genre but this comedy starring Julia Stiles and a still relatively unknown Heath Ledger is one of the better entries of the decade. A Taming of the Shrew retelling, Stiles plays Kat, a beautiful, smart senior in high school who doesn’t have time for any guy’s bullsh*t. Ledger plays the handsome new kid, Patrick. A plot is hatched to get the two together so that Kat’s younger sister can start dating and things devolve from there.

#BongHive rejoice! Amazon Prime’s giving us even more reasons to tap into the director’s eclectic collection of genre films with this monster-run-amock movie, which was first inspired by reports of a fish with an S-shaped spine being caught in the Han River. For The Host, Bong Joon-Ho made the creature significantly more menacing, as it eventually emerges from the Han River and causes immense havoc. Local snack bar vendor Park Gang-du (Song Kang-ho) tries to escape with his daughter, before realizing he’s escaped with the wrong girl. Soon, the U.S. military arrives and quarantines all those who’ve come into contact with the creature, making Park Gang-du’s attempts to rescuing his daughter from the creature’s lair significantly more difficult.

Val (2021)

Run Time: 109 min IMDb: 8.8/10

There are timeless classics and then there’s David Fincher’s exercise in understanding modern masculinity (a.k.a. Fight Club). The film has managed to remain relevant over the decades, with fans finding new themes and messages to dig into when it comes to Edward Norton’s depressed, unfulfilled office worker and his machismo friend, Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). The two start an underground fight club — with a now-famous set of rules — and wreak havoc on the city as they let loose their aggression and search for meaning in life. But it’s the film’s surprise, introspective ending that really elevates this bloody drama.

Edgar Cervantes / Android Authority

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you’ve got plenty of family-oriented titles to choose from. We’ve taken the time to curate some of the best family movies on Amazon Prime Video so you and the Brady Bunch don’t have to sift through the entire exhaustive library. Keep in mind some of these movies are more for older kids and teens, as opposed to little ones.

Don’t have Amazon Prime already? You can sign up for $12.99 a month or $119 a year. There’s also a cheaper option if you just want Amazon Prime Video without the shopping perks. Also, don’t forget there’s a 30-day free trial for new members.


Best family movies on Amazon Prime:

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best Amazon Prime family movies regularly as new ones are released.


1. Troop Zero

Troop Zero is an Amazon original family film that is perfect for a fun movie date with the young ‘uns. It follows the story of a group of misfit elementary school children trying to win a talent show so that their voices can be recorded and sent to space. The movie is a light-hearted comedy, full of zest and spunk. It stars Mckenna Grace of Gifted fame in the lead role of Christian Flint as well as veteran actor Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) as the troop leader.


2. The Map of Tiny Perfect Things

A 2021 title, this movie is a sci-fi teen romance about two teenagers — Margaret and Mark — who find themselves stuck in a time loop. They relive the same day over and over again. As they start spending time together, they discuss their life goals and dreams and look for perfect moments in their city to try and escape the loop. Of course, they also fall in love during the whole process. 


3. E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial

This cult science fiction movie produced and directed by Steven Spielberg is something children and adults from all generations have appreciated over the past 40 years since its release. It chronicles a troubled child’s relationship with a friendly alien and how he helps the creature return home from Earth. The concept of the film was based on an imaginary friend Spielberg created when his parents divorced. Back in the day, the title surpassed Star Wars to become the highest grossing film of all time. So tas you can see, there’s more than one reason the movie should be on your family’s watchlist.


4. The Aeronauts

Inspired by actual events, The Aeronauts is a movie that narrates the adventures of a meteorologist and a professional aeronaut who are out to prove that the weather can be predicted. It’s based on a historic hot-air balloon expedition from circa 1862 in which scientist James Glashier and aeronaut Henry Coxwell rose to a height of 30,000 feet, the highest any human had ever been in a gas balloon. Only in the film, Coxwell is replaced by the fictional character of Amelia Wren, played by Felicity Jones. While the movie does take some creative liberties with the facts, it’s still a remarkable visual journey and an engaging watch, one that’s best enjoyed on a large screen.


5. Madeline

This 1998 family comedy film is a must-watch if you have little girls and boys around. Adapted from the children’s book by the same name, Madeline follows the adventures of a young orphan girl who, despite having a tough upbringing, is ever positive and extremely mischievous. When her beloved school is on the verge of being shut down, she uses her wit, craftiness, and friends to attempt to save it.


6. Brittany Runs A Marathon

This Amazon Prime original movie is all about self-motivation and feeling good about your life. The plot of the movie revolves around a party girl named Brittany, who tries to reinvent herself and her choices after a visit to the doctor scares her into becoming more healthy. The film is funny, light-hearted, and thought-provoking at the same time. A must watch for the family if you’re looking for some inspiration and a good ol’ pick-me-up story.


7. My Spy

This is an Amazon original action-comedy movie that you’ll probably have fun watching with your little ones. An undercover CIA operative is caught spying by a nine-year-old girl who then blackmails him into teaching her the basics of espionage. They form a close bond in the time they spend together and eventually become family.


8. Fathers & Daughters

This is a 2016 family drama starring Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Kylie Rogers, and Aron Paul. It’s a powerful and touching story of the bond between a father and his daughter. Crowe plays a Pulitzer-winning author who has a mental breakdown after the untimely death of his wife. He struggles to take care of his daughter Katie as a single father and the pressure also affects his work negatively. With a burst of inspiration, he manages to write his last book titled “Fathers and Daughters” and dies because of injuries he sustained in the car accident. 25 years later, his grown-up daughter is seen making some questionable decisions and having intimacy issues. The movie alternates between the past and the present and shows how Katie’s behavior and choices as an adult are influenced by her relationship with her father as a girl.


9. Knives Out

Knives Out is a family movie about a wealthy family and its secrets. It’s a classic whodunit mystery movie speckled with comic flavor. The plot revolves around the murder investigation of the patriarch of an eccentric and competitive family. All family members are suspects and it’s up to a private investigator to find the culprit. But the truth is hugely convoluted and many unexpected twists make the chase even more enthralling. The movie also has a great ensemble cast, including names like Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, and others.


10. The Peanut Butter Falcon

Starring Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, and newcomer Zack Gottsagen, this feel-good adventure-comedy tells the story of a young man with Down syndrome (Gottsagen) who escapes from a residential nursing home to go to a wrestling school. Along the way, he befriends a fisherman on the run (LaBeouf). The two men quickly form a bond and the film tracks their various adventures as a social worker (Johnson) attempts to track them down.


11. Soul Surfer

Soul Surfer is an inspiring true story of Bethany Hamilton, a teen surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack. The film is based on Bethany’s autobiography wherein she recalls her recovery journey and how she got back on the board despite all odds stacked up against her.

Horror movies on Amazon Prime Video

I’m a big horror fan, and I’ve watched tons of horror movies on Amazon Prime Video Canada (the good, the bad, and the ugly).

I’ve included some of the best ones here, but I’ve also got a separate blog post all about the best horror movies on Prime Video, with even more great films for my fellow horror fans.

Scream (1996, 1997, 2000, & 2011)

Can you call yourself a horror fan without having seen Scream?

The Scream franchise revolves around Sidney Prescott, who constantly gets chased by psychopaths in ghostface masks.

It’s definitely one of my favourite horror franchises of all-time, and all 4 of the movies are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video!

It’s the ultimate slasher franchise that never gets old or boring, and I never get tired of re-watching it.

While Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger may be the OG slasher villains, I find myself laughing too much since both franchises started in the 70s and 80s.

There’s also a Netflix series version of Scream, but it’s definitely not the same or as good as the films.

Train to Busan (2016)

Train to Busan is without a doubt the best zombie horror film I have ever seen.

While Seok-woo and his daughter are aboard a train to the city of Busan, they get trapped in the middle of a zombie outbreak.

It’s absolutely terrifying, especially since the zombies actually run fast.

The film is in Korean, so you’ll have to read subtitles, but it’s absolutely worth it.

There’s also a sequel, but it’s a completely different story and I didn’t love it as much as the first movie.

If you like Train to Busan, you should also watch Kingdom, a Netflix series about zombies invading ancient Korea (who also run fast), and #Alive, another South Korean Netflix movie about zombies!

The Descent series (2005 & feel good movies on amazon prime creatures prey on people who dare to wander into their caves.

Let’s just say that you won’t want to venture into any caves after watching The Descent. *shudders*

And maybe don’t watch the Descent films if you’re claustrophobic.

There are two movies, and both are available on Prime Video!

American Psycho (2000)

Patrick Bateman is a wealthy investment banker with a secret psychopathic side, and his bloodlust gets increasingly violent as he indulges in his dark desires.

American Psycho is a gory one, so shield your eyes from this one if too much blood freaks you out.

It was good the first time watching it, but I think I liked it even better the second time around.

Some big names are in this horror classic, including Christian Bale, Reese Witherspoon, and Jared Leto!

There’s actually a sequel with Mila Kunis, but it’s more of a comedy horror and isn’t as good.

The Blair Witch Project (1999)

The Blair Witch Project is the OG found footage film.

Basically, three film students visit a small town to document a legendary local murderer named Blair Witch, and they start to witness strange things.

I’m honestly not crazy about the whole found footage genre, but I can definitely appreciate a good one.

I also really enjoyed the Paranormal Activity series, and you can watch parts 2-4 on Netflix!

The Grudge (2004 & 2020)

You’ve definitely heard of The Grudge horror franchise, and it’s an American remake of the Japanese movie.

Ju-On: The Grudge is one of the Japanese movies, and it’s also on Prime Video!

The Grudge curse starts when someone dies in extreme rage or sorrow, and it gets passed on when someone encounters the entity, which then passes onto that person, and continues repeatedly.

You can watch the first and fourth Grudge movies on Prime Video.

The 2020 version is a sort of sidequel, and honestly it was pretty terrible, although I do really like Lin Shaye (Elise in Insidious – you can watch all the movies on Netflix) and John Cho (Harold in Harold and Kumar, which you can also watch on Netflix).

3 films available on Amazon Prime Video

Countdown (2019)

Would you download an app that could tell you ecuador south america when you were going to die?

I sure wouldn’t, but that’s what all the peeps in Countdowndo.

A nurse downloads the app and finds out she only has 3 days left to live, and she rushes against time to save herself.

Fantasy Island (2020)

It’s a fun watch with a pretty decent twist at the end!

A Perfect Getaway (2009)

Newlyweds Cliff and Cydney travel to Hawaii for their honeymoon, and things take a turn for the worse when they find out tourists are being murdered on the island.

A Perfect Getaway has an incredible ending if you’re a fan of good twists.

Don’t Hang Up (2016)

Two pranksters have the tables turned on them when a stranger’s prank call turns into a deadly game.

Don’t Hang Up is an interesting concept, and it’s definitely a creepy watch.

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

A group of friends visit a remote cabin for a little getaway, and strange things start to happen.

I loved this movie so much when I first watched it, and I’ve seen it many times since.

Just when you think the movie is over, you realize it’s not – and it happens more than once lol.

Plus, the twist at the end is pretty awesome!

Jessica Lam IMDb: 6.6/10</strong></p><p>Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson team up for this comedy that imagines the grit and humor it takes to lead a late-night talk show as a woman. Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, an accomplished TV personality who fears she may lose her talk show because of declining ratings and competition from a younger, male comedian. She hires Molly (Kaling) a comedy writer with little experience to diversify her team, and the two women weather hilarious mishaps and a few scandals to bring the show back on track.</p><p><strong>Add To Watchlist</strong></p></div><div><figure><img src=

Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

Run Time: 101 min IMDb: 7.4/10

Jimmie Fails plays himself in this semi-autobiographical drama about a young man’s attempts to reclaim his childhood home. Fails and his best friend, Mont (Jonathan Majors), visit the old Victorian house where Fails grew up, only to find it in disarray. When the current tenants find themselves embroiled in a fight for ownership, forced to move out while the battle plays out in court, Jimmy and Mont move in, fixing up the place and fighting to restore some of the neighborhood’s old school charm.

Closer (2004)

Run Time: 104 min IMDb: 6.6/10

Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson star in an adventurous retelling of the true-life drama of Col. Percival Fawcett. Fawcett (Hunnam) was a British explorer who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s. This adaptation of David Grann’s popular book is the slowest of burns and takes liberties with Fawcett’s tale if only because no one really knows what happened to the man and his son when they went missing in the jungle, but stick around for some fantastic cinematography and a few thrilling action sequences — along with the sense of mystery that comes with a look at old-world exploration expeditions.

We Need To Talk About Kevin (2011)

Run Time: 110 min IMDb: 7.7/10

Comprised of some truly unique archival footage from the actor himself and his famous friends, this documentary tells the singular story of Val Kilmer, a mysterious and incredibly interesting Hollywood celebrity who seemed to vanish from the screen for years following a stint of blockbuster success. The doc shows a different side to Kilmer, his relationship to his art, to fame, and his battle with throat cancer all taking center stage as he uses self-filmed footage to pull back the curtain on his life. It’s one of the most addictively watchable biopic docs we’ve seen in a long time.

Feel good movies on amazon prime -

IMDb: 8.8/10

There are timeless classics and then there’s David Fincher’s exercise in understanding modern masculinity (a.k.a. Fight Club). The film has managed to remain relevant over the decades, with fans finding new themes and messages to dig into when it comes to Edward Norton’s depressed, unfulfilled office worker and his machismo friend, Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). The two start an underground fight club — with a now-famous set of rules — and wreak havoc on the city as they let loose their aggression and search for meaning in life. But it’s the film’s surprise, introspective ending that really elevates this bloody drama.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Run Time: 158 min IMDb: 7.7/10

Awkwafina stars in this dramedy from director Lulu Wang that got a fair amount of Oscar buzz this season. The story follows a Chinese family, who discovers their beloved grandmother has only a short time to live. Instead of telling her, they keep the news to themselves, planning a wedding so that everyone can gather to say their goodbyes. It’s a dark comedy to be sure, but it’s given heart by some brilliant performances including Shuzhen Zhao as the central Nai Nai.

Midsommar (2019)

Run Time: 147 min IMDb: 8.1/10

Based on a historical crime novel set in Victoria-Era England, Park Chan-wook’s lavish, mesmerizing thriller focuses on two young women fighting to escape oppression by the men in their lives. Chan-woo has traded the stuffy British countryside for Japanese-occupied Korea, telling the stories of Lady Hideko and her handmaiden Sook-hee in three parts, weaving a tale of passion, betrayal, dark secrets, and revenge with grander themes of imperialism, colonial rule, and patriarchal corruption. The two women are the draw of the film with both resorting to illicit, illegal, morally compromising schemes in order to gain their freedom, but love is an unintended consequence that leaves the third act — one you might think you have figured out halfway through the film — completely unpredictable.

The Big Sick (2017)

Run Time: 120 min IMDb: 7.3/10

The 90s sure loved the “literary classics masquerading as teen dramas” genre but this comedy starring Julia Stiles and a still relatively unknown Heath Ledger is one of the better entries of the decade. A Taming of the Shrew retelling, Stiles plays Kat, a beautiful, smart senior in high school who doesn’t have time for any guy’s bullsh*t. Ledger plays the handsome new kid, Patrick. A plot is hatched to get the two together so that Kat’s younger sister can start dating and things devolve from there.

Die Hard (1988)

Run Time: 132 min

Life can be heavy. Some days, it might have you wishing you could just Amazon Prime ship yourself into outer space and never come back. (Sadly, for now, that right is reserved exclusively for Mr. Bezos and his motley crew of space explorers.)

But while you’re stuck down here on earth, there’s still plenty of ways to make the gravity of the world feel a bit lighter. Like, for instance, watching a comedy movie on Amazon Prime. With a wide range of award-winning blockbusters, slapstick favorites, and satires as dark as the fate of our world, Amazon is sure to have something to turn that existential dread upside down. Or, at least keep you entertained for a few hours.

Take a load off and get some laughs out. You deserve it. These are the best comedies on Amazon Prime, available right now.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Based on the experiences of writer Cameron Crowe while undercover at a San Diego high school, Fast Times at Ridgemont High has become an iconic teen comedy of the 80s. Featuring young lovers, rebels, slackers, and stoners, the film offers a slice of teenaged life—and a stellar performance from a young Sean Penn.

Watch Now

My Best Friend’s Wedding

There are some rom-coms that stop you in your tracks no matter how many times you’ve watched reruns of it on cable, and My Best Friend’s Wedding is one of them. Hilarious and heartbreaking, the film stars Julia Roberts as a single 27-year-old whose marriage pact with her best friend (played by Dermot Mulroney) goes awry just days before their ultimatum arrives. Now forced to cope with her latent feelings for him, she must also cope with being maid of honor to her best friend’s fiancée, played by Cameron Diaz.

Watch Now

Sideways

Nothing says bachelor party quite like a midlife crisis road trip to wine country. Directed by Alexander Payne and starring Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, Sandra Oh, and Virginia Madsen, Sideways follows Miles and Jack, two forty-somethings determined to have one last hurrah before Jack’s wedding. As the trip, and an affair, unfold, the two friends realize they might have had different itineraries in mind.

Watch Now

Something's Gotta Give

Only such seasoned vets as Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson could make a classic rom-com feel this refreshing. In the most unlikely (and unsettling) of meet-cutes, Keaton and Nicholson star as Harry and Erica, two middle-aged people whose paths cross over a heart attack. More specifically, the heart attack that Harry has suffered while having sex with Erica’s twenty-something daughter. Boy meets girl, boy meets girl’s mom…you get the gist.

Watch Now

His Girl Friday

If you’re on the market for some time-tested, perennial punchlines, you can’t go wrong with heading back to the classics. And the 1940s screwball hit His Girl Friday might be as classic as comedies come. Starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell, the film follows Walter, a news editor, as he attempts to revive his marriage with Hildy, his ex-wife and fellow journalist, by pursuing one final story together. As Hildy begins to uncover unexpected details about their subject, though, the story Walter had envisioned might be in need of a re-write.

Watch Now

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

A classic early aughts comedy, Dodgeball sees a stacked cast of comedy power players take the court for a raunchy, wacky, and ultimately charming underdog tale. Vince Vaughn stars as the owner of Average Joe’s, a gym down on its luck seeking a financial Hail Mary pass. When Average Joe’s is threatened with being taken over by luxurious Globo Gym and its owner White Goodman, played by Ben Stiller, the gym enters a local dodgeball competition in hopes of securing the cash prize.

Watch Now

Burn After Reading

(Insert the Brad Pitt dancing gif you’ve used thousands of times without ever knowing the origin.) Burn After Reading is a star-studded dark comedy from the Coen brothers starring Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, and J.K. Simmons. Pitt and McDormand star as two gym employees who, upon finding memoirs from a former CIA analyst, try to cash out thinking they’ve found confidential information.

Watch Now

Harold and Maude

A cult classic from Hal Ashby, this beloved 1970s dark comedy about an unlikely friendship between Harold, a death-obsessed young man, and Maude, an elderly woman with a profound appreciation for life. Somewhat controversial to this day, it's a staple in the niche canon of eyebrow-raising romantic comedies. Opposites attract.

Watch Now

The House Bunny

Don’t let the poor reviews fool you: If you’re looking for a laugh without a lot of leg work, House Bunny is an easy watch with some hidden comedic gold. With stellar early-career performances from Anna Faris and Emma Stone, among others, The House Bunny follows Farris as ex-Playboy Bunny Shelley who unexpectedly finds herself in a new house full of women—the nerdy Zeta Alpha Zeta sorority. Needing new pledges, the house enlists Shelley to be their saving grace in revamping their misfit community.

Watch Now

Step Brothers

If you’re late to the Step Brothers bandwagon, one watch of this buddy comedy will probably open you to a world of one-liners that had been going over your head for years. As entertaining as it is quotable, Step Brothers sees comedy duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in arguably their best performance together. The duo stars as Brennan and Dale, two thirty-something year-olds who are newly step brothers after their divorced parents marry one another. Reckoning with their immaturity, Brennan and Dale experience something of a latent coming-of-age that’s packed with hilarity and strange sincerity.

Watch Now

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Just when saying “My wife!” for the past fourteen years was starting to get old, envelope-pushing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has reprised Borat Sagdiyev when we needed him most. While the mockumentary packs its signature over-the-top comedy, Cohen’s on-the-ground satire “reporting” brings a deeply analytical lens to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 election, and Trump’s America. Perhaps the most memorable of all, though, is the breakout performance from Maria Bakalova, who stars as Borat’s daughter Tutar whom Borat is determined to offer as a bride to Mike Pence.

Watch Now

Parasite

A dark comedy to its core, Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite received worldwide acclaim from Cannes to the Oscars for its inventive commentary on late-stage capitalism. The film follows a lower-income family on their mission to infiltrate a wealthy family’s home by picking up household jobs for them. The film is an urgent watch, as its message applies not just to its setting of South Korea, but to our ever-growing wealth gap worldwide.

Watch Now

The Farewell

In a deft balance of drama and comedy, Lulu Wang’s semi-autobiographical The Farewell is arguably one of the most memorable and moving dramedies of the past few years. With a stunning performance from Awkwafina at its core, the film moves through the decision process of a Chinese-American family who, upon learning that their grandmother is nearing her death, must decide whether or not to tell her about her diagnosis.

Watch Now

Uncle Frank

Another moving dramedy, Uncle Frank stars Paul Bettany as a gay literature professor living in New York in the 1970s. Upon receiving news that his father has passed, he must journey back to the less-than-accepting home in South Carolina he’d sought refuge from so many years ago. The somber journey is uplifted, though, by the unexpected company of his niece, played by Sophia Lillis, and boyfriend, played by Peter Macdissi.

Watch Now

Knives Out

Knives Out did us the long overdue favor of breathing life back into the traditional whodunnit film.This murder mystery ensemble comedy is the perfect off-kilter thriller for your next movie night.

IMDb: 8.4/10

Ridley Scott basically invented sci-fi horror with this alien thriller about a crew on a commercial space tug who must battle a violent extraterrestrial being that’s infiltrated their ship. Sigourney Weaver plays Ripley, an officer aboard the Nostromo, who’s forced to face down the titular Alien, an aggressive life form intent upon killing the ship’s human crew. Most of the action revolves around Weaver’s attempts to destroy the creature and save her shipmates, but it’s Scott’s direction behind the camera that creates the suspense and terror this film has become known for.

The Tomorrow War(2021)

Joaquin Phoenix stars as a troubled hitman with a dark past in this thrilling crime flick from Lynne Ramsay. Phoenix plays Joe, a gun for hire, former military man and FBI agent, who spends most of his time rescuing victims of sex trafficking. He’s recruited to save a Senator’s daughter from a brothel that caters to high-end clientele, but the job thrusts him into the center of a conspiracy that costs him everything and ends in blood and tragedy. It’s a relentless slog to be sure, but it works because Ramsay is more interested in profiling the man, not the hits he makes.
