Check out these five movies on Prime Video to say goodbye to 2023

We’re saying goodbye to another year. Not everyone will be in the celebration spirit. Is anyone walking into 2024 saying “it’s my year?” So, instead of watching the Ball Drop, you need to find something to check out on Prime Video.

The good news is Amazon has something for everyone. Whether you want a twisty psychological thriller or you’re in the mood for a rom-com, you’ll find something on the streamer to watch. The full list of movies can end up a little overwhelming, though.

We’ve got some great picks to get you started. Here are five movies that are more than worth watching, and they’re free with your Prime membership right now.
