Best Movies to Stream on Amazon Prime This Month

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, a nice perk is included along with free overnight package delivery: access to countless streaming films and original series. (On Amazon and elsewhere, here are now-streaming classic TV shows that will keep you on the edge of your seat.)

But if you’ve ever found yourself scrolling through the streamer’s selection of films on the hunt for the perfect movie, you know how daunting a task it can be. With an astounding 24,000 movies in its catalog, it’s conceivable that you could spend more time sorting through the library, looking for the right movie to watch, than watching the actual movie itself. And even after you make your selection, there’s no guarantee that you’re actually going to enjoy your chosen film. (One safe bet might be to stick to the Best Picture nominees and winners you can stream right now.)

To determine the best movies to stream on Amazon Prime this May, 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. Documentaries were not considered. Data on streaming availability, current as of this month, comes from the streaming guide Reelgood.
