Prime Video has just added 20 very big movies to its library
From Oscar-winning blockbusters to some absolute must-avoids...
Hot off the back of Netflix adding big movies to its library this week, Amazon Prime Video is not going to be outdone!
So here are 20 big movies that have just been added to the Prime Video streaming service, including some absolute classics, and some that need to be completely avoided...
Mel Gibson's historical epic is still massively entertaining, despite... y'know... everything.
CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC
A rom-com about a shopping addict (Isla Fisher) who takes a job as a financial specialist to make ends meet. It isn't very funny, or very romantic. Fisher always deserved better than this.
The pairing of Steve Carrell and Tina Fey should've been dynamite. Instead, this is just another okay comedy that seems to confuse action scenes with LOLs.
THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW
A disaster movie about terrible weather, with Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal as father and son, which they're returning to do in Disney's new movie in cinemas this week.
George Clooney and his daughter Shailene Woodley try to find the man his wife/her mother was having an affair with after she slips into a coma.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
"This… 'stuff'? Oh, okay. I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You… go to your closet, and you select… I don’t know, that lumpy blue sweater for instance, because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back, but what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean.
"You’re also blithely unaware of the fact that, in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns, and then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent, wasn’t it?… who showed cerulean military jackets. I think we need a jacket here.
"And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores, and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin.
"However, that blue represents millions of dollars of countless jobs, and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry, when in fact, you’re wearing a sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room… from a pile of 'stuff'."
Dodge. Duck. Dip. Dive. And dodge.
EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE
Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock star in this mawkish post-9/11 drama. It isn't AWFUL, it just should've been A LOT better.
2017 comedy starring Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, Christopher Walker, Glenn Close, J.K. Simmons and Ving Rhames. Never heard of it? The 17% score on Rotten Tomatoes might explain that...
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
Set within a New York real estate office, where the staff have been told that all but two will be fired before the end of the week. Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Jonathan Pryce... a very good movie.
A GOOD YEAR
After they made Gladiator together, Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott made this very different movie about a man who moves to France to check out a vineyard he's inherited. Nobody likes this movie.
GONE IN 60 SECONDS
Nic Cage tried to continue his reign of action megastar (The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off) with this car chase movie. It didn't work out.
A technical tour-de-force and often extremely tense sci-fi thriller with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney left abandoned in space.
Timothy Olyphant heads this video game adaptation. Pretty bad.
THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN
Sean Connery's last on-screen performance. From the director of Blade, who also never directed anything again after this one. A very interesting misfire.
MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD
Russell Crowe again, but in a much better movie this time, an old-school swashbuckling action-adventure.
OCEAN'S ELEVEN / TWELVE / THIRTEEN
First one is great. Second one is bad. Third one is okay.
THE WEDDING SINGER
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in one of the most loved rom-coms ever made.
