Amazon Prime Video has quietly added 10 big new movies to its library
Need a movie in a minute?
At JOE, we understand that searching for a new movie to watch on your streaming platform of choice can actually equate to a strangely stressful experience.
There's a lot of second-guessing involved. Perhaps you're watching with a friend or a loved one and you just can't meet in the middle. Maybe you're just not in the mood for Die Hard for the 100th time.
Seconds turn into minutes and before you know it you've wasted an hour and it's too late. Tragic stuff, really.
In any event, when a bunch of new movies get uploaded without much ceremony, we're all over that.
For instance, Netflix added a few good ones just last weekend – get those here if you haven't already.
But we're here to talk about Amazon Prime Video and the latest additions there, aren't we?
If you're a subscriber, you can now take your pick from...
Christopher Nolan's twisty tale of two magicians and their fierce escalating rivalry boasts a strong cast in the form of Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, Rebecca Hall and David Bowie.
David Fincher's dark-as-hell-itself thriller has rarely, if ever, been bettered.
Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman play two detectives – one something of a cocky rookie, one a seen-it-all veteran – on the trail of an inventive serial killer who is using the seven deadly sins as his guide.
Crazy Stupid Love
Ryan Gosling turns the charm up to 11 alongside Emma Stone, Steve Carrell, Julianne Moore, Kevin Bacon and Marisa Tomei in this popular romantic comedy from 2011.
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
The second one.
Austin Powers in Goldmember
The third one.
The 2000 vintage in which Samuel L. Jackson says things like "It's my duty to please that booty" while also somehow finding the time to take down bad guys.
An on-the-rise Christian Bale co-stars as a particularly nasty villain.
The Good Liar
Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen lend a con artist thriller a touch of class.
The Wedding Singer
Classic 1980s-set comedy with Adam Sandler – as the depressed wedding singer in question – and Drew Barrymore.
Rock of Ages
Tom Cruise steals the show in this raucous big-screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
David Fincher again, this time providing his version of the best-selling Swedish crime novel.
In the American version, Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara deliver excellent performances against a supremely moody backdrop – a superb score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross certainly helps – and a complex murder mystery.
