When we have so many options before us, it can be difficult to find the best options out of the lot. We are of course talking about a deluge of movies on a plethora of streaming platforms. If you’re looking for great movies on Amazon Prime, we’ve got you covered. In this list, we bring you some of the underrated but acclaimed movies that you can watch on the streaming platform.
No need to rummage through the library.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Child
Paul Newman and Robert Redford play the leaders of criminal gangs in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Child. The film follows their antics as their attempt to rob a bank goes awry and they flee to another country in an attempt to evade the law.
At the end of the film, which was riddled with jokes and sarcasm, relentlessly scathing dialogue, and the sharpest parody elements, we see the two outlaws disappear in a shootout. It seems ambiguous because it was done this way on purpose. People argued that the real Butch Cassidy had managed to escape the gunfire and lived long after that. Watch it for the thrills.
Let us leave aside the debate on whether or not Die hard is a Christmas movie for a hot second. Bruce Willis as New York cop John McClane makes the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone disappear in comparison.
We see McClane attempting to fend off the terrorists who hijacked the Nakatomi Tower, holding their employees – including McClane’s wife – hostage, and McClane’s solo battle continues in the face of the arrival of the other forces.
Watch it to see why Jake Peralta is so obsessed with McClane and his stunts. Hint: They both like to go solo, but for Jake, it only lasts until he realizes he could actually work better with the support of the Nine-Nines.
Edward Norton and Brad Pitt give performances of a lifetime in this film based on the eponymous novel by Chuck Palahniuk. The film – much like the novel – gives a sharp commentary on the commodification of culture, capitalism, and social isolation, all of which resonate in the post-pandemic world.
Fight Club had bombed at the box office, misinterpreted as glorification of violence, but has since found a fan base among viewers who love subverted narratives. Today, Fight Club has cult classic status.
Camila Cabello, Nicholas Galitzine, Idina Menzel, Pierce Brosnan come together in a modern take on the classic fairy tale. Except now we’re trying to embrace the idea of a fiercely independent Cinderella played by an ambitious Cabello and an empathetic stepmom (women are supporting each other now) played by Menzel.
The best part: Billy Porter plays a genderless version of the fairy godmother called Fab G. It’s really 2021. Porter later explained how it happened, “It evolved and the thing that came out of it. evolution was ‘magic has no gender’, so make it genderless, genderless, genre fluid whatever you want to say. There is no gender. “
John Travolta plays a bounty hunter, loan shark, or whatever evil name you want to call a debt collector. While on the hunt in Los Angeles, Travolta decides to have a taste of showbiz, only to realize that the city is full of crooks and false promises.
Get Shorty is not Bojack Horseman, but he still makes some astute observations on the craft of filmmaking and its components of overhead lunches and networking.
Spirit of adventure
The film has Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston as a couple. This should be reason enough for you to want to donate Spirit of adventure a watch. We also have Ken Marino as Rudd’s older brother. And Joe Lo Truglio being his Boyle-self.
