A great mix of classics and hidden gems.

We recently gave a run down of all the movies quietly added to Netflix in recent weeks, now we are doing the same for Prime Video:

Almost Famous

This acclaimed semi-autobiographical comedy-drama centres around a teenage journalist (Patrick Fugit) as he writes for Rolling Stone magazine in the early 1970s and tours with a rock band.

American Made

In this very fun action comedy loosely based on true events, Tom Cruise plays an American pilot in the ’70s and ’80s who gets recruited to fly clandestine reconnaissance missions for the CIA before becoming a drug smuggler for the Medellín Cartel.


Jack Black gives maybe his best performance to date in this black comedy-drama based on a true events about a Texan mortician (Black) whose relationship with a wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine) takes a dark turn.

Matthew McConaughey co-stars.

Blow Out

In this ’80s thriller, John Travolta plays a movie sounds effect technician who witnesses a car crash and stumbles into a political conspiracy.

Directed by Brian De Palma (Carrie, Scarface, The Untouchables), Blow Out is one of the greatest thrillers ever made.

Ex Machina

A programmer (Domhnall Gleeson) is invited to a luxurious, isolated home by his CEO (Oscar Isaac) to participate in a ground-breaking experiment involving an intelligent humanoid robot (Alicia Vikander).

Written and directed by Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Annihilation), Ex Machina is one of the best sci-fi movies of the past 10 years.

Fifty Dead Men Walking

A Troubles-set crime thriller starring Jim Sturgess, Ben Kingsley and Rose McGowan that JOE previously called “really underappreciated”.

This Mel Gibson-directed film starring Andrew Garfield was recently named as one of the 10 best war movies of all time.

The Hummingbird Project

Two cousins and high-frequency traders (Alexander Skarsgård and Jesse Eisenberg) go up against their old boss (Salma Hayek) in an effort to make millions in a fiber-optic cable deal in this drama thriller.

Igby Goes Down

Throughout the course of their investigation, the agents are met with hostility by the town’s residents, local police and the Ku Klux Klan.
