5 must-watch Amazon movies on Prime Video this weekend


The first on the list has to be the new Amazon Original Movie that dropped on the service on Feb. 5, Bliss. Owen Wilson stars as Greg, a man who is in a depressing and monotonous job and doesn’t have the strongest relationship with his daughter.

He learns from Isabel (Salma Hayek) that his world is a simulation designed to appreciate the perfect world he comes from. When the two realities start to combine, he has to figure out which one is the real one.


What would you do if you learn the comet heading for Earth is much more dangerous than you previously thought? Gerald Butler stars in Greeland, where that is the case, and he learns that the comet is going to end the world.

It’s okay, he’s got the chance to head to a bunker with his family. There they can wait out the comet storm and get the world back on track afterward. It’s just going to be a mission to get there.

Moulin Rouge

Need a romance and a musical in one? Moulin Rouge is the movie for you. It’s one of the Feb. 1 drops on the list, and you’ve probably seen it before. It’s just one of the best Amazon movies for the lead up to Valentine’s Day.

Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman star in this movie that brings all your favorite pop songs to 18th-century France. Just get the tissues ready.

The Prestige

How about a mystery movie? Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale star in this period drama about two magicians. They used to be best friends, but they end up fighting and deciding to work against each other.

When one of them comes up with a perfect trick, the other is obsessed to beat it. Will he ever find out the secret?

Coming to America

With Coming 2 America on its way in March 2021, there’s no better time to watch the first movie. It just arrived on Amazon Prime Video at the start of the month, and it’s the basis for the sequel that’s arriving soon.

Eddie Murphy stars in this movie about a pampered African Prince who heads to Queens, NY to find a wife. He wants someone who he can respect, but he learns a lot more about the life outside his own little bubble.
