There’s nothing quite like a good movie. Grabbing some popcorn, pouring a drink, and sitting down with the lights turned low can make for an immersive, theatrical experience at any time of day. And guess what? It doesn’t even have to be in a movie theater!
Thanks to streaming services like Amazon Prime, there are more movies and TV shows available for streaming than ever before. On Amazon Prime alone there are over 24,000 movies to choose from – nearly anything and everything cinema. Sure, there are some stinkers, but by and large you’ll find a wide range of blockbuster masterpieces and award-winning films for your viewing pleasure. (On Amazon and elsewhere, here are Best Picture nominees and winners you can stream right now.)
In the ever-changing pandemic, streaming a movie is often a better option than going to a theater. Plus, you get to make the choice of what you want to see – anytime! (And it’s not just movies. Here are now-streaming classic TV shows that will keep you on the edge of your seat.)
To determine the best movies to watch on Amazon Prime this April, 24/7 Tempo developed an index using average ratings on IMDb, an online movie database owned by Amazon, and a combination of audience scores and Tomatometer scores on Rotten Tomatoes, an online movie and TV review aggregator, as of April 2022, weighting all ratings equally. We considered only movies with at least 5,000 audience votes on either IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes, and ruled out documentaries. (Data on streaming availability, current as of this month, comes from the streaming guide Reelgood, and directorial credits are from IMDb.)
