Whether you just need to laugh or you’re into documentaries, there is something for everyone on Amazon in November. Here are five movies on Amazon Prime Video you need to watch.

There really is something for everyone when it comes to movies on Amazon Prime Video in November. The list of Amazon Originals is impressive, as the streamer seems to be picking up steam after a difficult start to the year thanks to the pandemic filming delays.

The list of movies isn’t just about the originals, although there are some must-watches on the list. There are also some great older and newer third-party movies worth checking out.

The full list can be quite overwhelming. That’s why we’ve broken it down to just five you definitely need to watch throughout the month. The list is in release date order because you know it’s impossible to compare genres.

5 must-watch movies on Amazon in November 2021


Just in case you don’t get enough horror throughout the weekend, you can start November off with something scary. Alien drops on the platform on Monday, Nov. 1.

The 1979 movie follows the crew of Nostromo, a spacecraft that intercepts a distress signal from a planet. The crew decides to head out to investigate, only to end up being attacked by an alien that invades the ship.

There are sequels, although none of them quite hit the fear that Alien offers. Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection are also coming to Amazon Prime Video on the same day.

Mrs. Doubtfire

Need a comedy? The late, great Robin Williams is always the man to turn to. His movies are classics, and one of them is making its way to Amazon Prime Video again. It’s all about Mrs. Doubtfire.

The movie follows a single man who wants to spend more time with his children. When he realizes that his ex-wife is hiring a nanny, he puts on an elaborate plan to become that nanny with some hilarious consequences.

Watch the hilarious comedy on Monday, Nov. 1.

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

Benedict Cumberbatch is a British actor to watch out for. When he takes on roles, he becomes those roles, and that’s going to be the case again with The Electrical Life of Louis Wain.

Based on a true story, the movie follows artist and inventor Louis Wain. When he adopts a stray kitten, he starts to paint some beautiful and extraordinary images of cats that draw people in. These paintings make him famous around the world, and this is his story.

Mayor Pete

Pete Buttigieg has one dream: to become the President of the United States. Not only would he become the youngest President, but he would also be the first openly gay President.

The documentary, Mayor Pete, looks into his life and his campaign. It’s time to see his fight for his dream, and the supportive husband by his side. There is a lot of work to do, but he’s willing to put it in.
