Looking for free movies? The best ones to watch on Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime! It feels like everyone has one of these accounts nowadays. You can’t beat that two-day free shipping, after all. Not to mention with your Prime account, you get access to a whole host of content included with Prime Video. That means you also get a lot of movies on Prime as well. Technically, they’re free movies to watch. (Even though you’re paying 100 dollars a year, but technically free.)
But what are the best free movies on Amazon Prime? What are the ones that you should really check out? While we all love free stuff, sometimes you get what you don’t pay for. Here are some really great movies that come included with your Amazon Prime account. They’re technically free, so might as well enjoy them. After all, we have no movie theatres to go to right now.
One Night in Miami (2020)
One Night in Miami is definitely the movie that everyone is talking about. With your Amazon Prime account, it’s yours to stream for free. In the gorgeous directorial debut by Regina King (Watchmen), the film is a fictionalized meeting of Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Muhammad Ali (Eli Goree), Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge), and Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr) in a room at the Hampton House in February 1964.
One Night in Miami has been rapturously praised by critics & audiences alike. It’s definitely worth logging into your Prime account to watch. Seriously, if there is a film to beat at this year’s Oscars, then it’s going to be One Night in Miami.
The Farewell (2019)
The Farewell shows that Awkwafina is more than just a great comedic actress. She’s a powerhouse dramatic performer as well. The Farewell is about a family reunited in China to say goodbye to their beloved family matriarch (Zhao Shu-zhen) who only has a short time left to live. Instead of telling her the diagnosis, however, the family decides to plan a fake wedding in order to say their goodbyes.
What follows in The Farewell is a story about cultural differences, family ties, and the duties that we feel toward each other. Awkwafina delivers one powerful performance and, seriously, gives her some more dramatic roles because she’s going to wreck you.
Train to Busan (2016)
K-dramas have been slowly yet steadily gathering a following in the West. We, however, believe that Train to Busan definitely helped break South Korean movies big time to Western audiences. Taking place on a train that is becoming infested by the undead (먹튀검증), this is a great and thrilling ride with some truly excellent character development. Definitely worth a watch after you check out Parasite.
Train to Busan is seriously one of the best horror movies out there. If you want something that is genuinely scary while also balancing some excellent action, then it’s definitely a great film to check out.
Dear Zachary: A Letter to A Son About His Father (2008)
If you love true crime as much as we do, then prepare yourself to get wrecked by Dear Zachary. After his best friend, Dr. Andrew Bagby was killed by his jealous ex-girlfriend Dr. Shirley Turner, documentary filmmaker Kurt Kuenne sets out to tell the story about his life. Why? Because Shirley Turner fled to Canada while pregnant with Zachary, Andrew’s son.
It ended in tragedy when, after being released from jail, Shirley Turner committed murder-suicide by jumping into the Alantic Ocean with 13-month-old Zachary in her arms. Kuenne documents the entire journey of the Bagbys, and it will ruin you while also highlighting flaws in the legal system. Even so, it’s probably one of the most moving true crime documentaries out there with the focus on the victims, where it belongs.
