So if you've got Amazon Prime Video, here are the big movies that have just been added to the library...

10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU

The iconic 1999 teen rom-com remake of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew features Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a full-on charm offensive.

27 DRESSES

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride, Katherine Heigl goes into a tailspin when her own little sister announces her engagement. A fairly decent rom-com.

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER

Joseph Gordon-Levitt again, this time paired with Zooey Deschanel in a rom-com about people falling in and then painfully out of love.

AIR FORCE ONE

President Harrison Ford does a Die Hard when Russian terrorists led by Gary Oldman take his plane and all its passengers hostage.

AMERICAN SNIPER

The true story of an infamously brilliant sniper for the US Navy Seals (played by Bradley Cooper) who is finding it increasingly difficult to let go of the horrors he witnessed in Iraq.

ARMAGGEDON

Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck and some other oil-rig diggers are tasked with saving the world from an incoming asteroid. One of the stupidest (and most enjoyable) action movies of all time.

THE A-TEAM

Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and more attempt to remake the hit TV show by bumping the action set-pieces up hugely. It only kinda works.

THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL

A hotel host (Dev Patel) invites a group of tourists (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, etc.) to his rundown location in India. A cute comedy drama.

BLACK SWAN

A psychological horror about a perfectionist ballet dancer (Natalie Portman) who is pushed to the brink by a new arrival (Mila Kunis) brimming over with raw talent.

THE BOOK THIEF

The adaptation of the much-loved novel resulted in this very average period drama.

CALENDAR GIRLS

A group of friends (Helen Mirren, Julie Walters, etc.) decide to pose nude for a calendar photo shoot in order to raise funds for their local hospital. A successfully funny and sad comedy-drama.

COCKTAIL

This is apparently the worst reviewed movie of Tom Cruise's career. Do with that information what you will.

CON AIR

When violent prisoners take over a prison plane, nice guy Nic Cage has to save the day. Again, one of the stupidest (and most enjoyable) action movies of all time.

THE COUNSELOR

Directed by Ridley Scott, from the writer of No Country For Old Men, starring Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt. It should have been great. It wasn't.

COYOTE UGLY

"You can try to resist, Try to hide from my kiss, But you know but you know that you, Can't fight the moonlight." Banger.

DEAD POETS SOCIETY

Robin Williams got an Oscar nomination for his role as a teacher trying to show his students how to dream big.

DEJA VU

Following a terrorist attack, Denzel Washington is shown a time-travel machine that could potentially be used to view the past and catch the attacker. A very high-concept sci-fi action thriller.

DOMINO

The once-brilliant director Brian De Palma is behind this weirdly low-key action thriller headlined by Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in a chase between ISIS members and shady CIA agents.

HAVOC

Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (again!) and Freddy Rodriguez star in this thriller about a group of affluent LA teenagers who cross paths with some dangerous drug dealers. We've literally never even heard of it before. 45% on Rotten Tomatoes probably explains why.

MILK

Sean Penn headlines this Oscar-winning biopic of California's first openly gay politician to be elected into office, and the specific difficulties he faced during his career.

MOTHER & CHILD

Another movie we'd literally never heard of until right now. Naomi Watts, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington and Annette Bening star in this drama about families separated by adoption. 78% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it must be actually be pretty good.

THE MUMMY

The good one from 1999 with Brendan Fraser, not the bad one from 2017 with Tom Cruise.

THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR

The threequel mixes up the setting by taking us to China, but it is still far and away the worst of the bunch.

THE SCORPION KING

Despite the shoddy CGI marking his arrival in The Mummy Returns (which is already available on Prime Video), The Rock still got his own spin-off, pretty much kickstarting his entire Hollywood career.

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in this classic rom-com. Still brilliant to this day.

SUPPORTING THE GIRLS

A complete and total hidden gem (91% on Rotten Tomatoes!), it stars Regina Hall as the manager of a Hooters-esque sports bar who always puts the protection of her staff first.
