10 best Prime Video movies and TV shows: March 2024

Key Takeaways

  • Amazon Prime offers great value with free shipping, deals, and excellent streaming options on Prime Video.
  • Prime Video’s selection competes with Netflix, featuring new shows and movies constantly being added.
  • For a night in, ditch endless scrolling by checking out top picks like Fleabag, The Expanse, and Inglourious Basterds.



The value you get from your Amazon Prime subscription already more than justifies the yearly fee, especially if you shop online as much as I do. Beyond free shipping and deals, Prime Video is almost overlooked for how excellent its selection of shows and movies is. By diving into its offerings, there’s no doubt it can compete with Netflix and others for the title of best streaming service.

With new shows and movies added every month, it’s almost impossible to keep up with the latest and greatest on Prime Video. Between big blockbusters and original content, Prime Video has built an impressive library. I always face choice paralysis when I boot up a streaming service and browse the seemingly endless lists of content. Don’t waste your precious free time scrolling through dozens of shows and movies, only to lose half an hour or more. Let me direct you to ten amazing shows and movies for your next night inside.

4 things to know about Prime Video’s controversial ad-free plan

Amazon signaled it would show ads in shows and movies for months, but, of course, there were a few surprises with the rollout.

1 Fleabag

Dry British humor

Fleabag

Number of Seasons
2

Creator
Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Starring
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sian Clifford, Olivia Colman

Format
TV Series

British humor has a distinct taste, which Fleabag perfectly embodies. The main character is not likable, nor is she meant to be, but you love watching her continue to make terrible decisions that only accelerate her downward spiral. It’s a hilarious slice-of-life story about a woman in London attempting to navigate her thoughts and her relationship with the world after the death of her best friend. It’s funny, sad, inspiring, and will keep you hooked from start to finish.

2 The Legend of Vox Machina

Not for children


The Legend of Vox Machina

Cast
Laura Bailey , Taliesin Jaffe , Ashley Johnson

Seasons
3

Story By
Critical Role

Format
TV Series

Based on the hit online Dungeons and Dragons series Critical Role, The Legend of Vox Machina is an animated adaptation of one such adventure. It stars an unlikely group of not-so-heroic heroes in their attempt to free the City of Whitestone from the evil Lord and Lady Briarwood. Full of humor and gore, you need no experience with Critical Role or Dungeons and Dragons to enjoy this raunchy medieval comedy.

3 The Devil’s Hour

Watch after dark

The Devil’s Hour

Cast
Peter Capaldi , Jessica Raine , Nikesh Patel

Seasons
3

Format
TV Series

There’s something captivating about a gripping mystery with a possible supernatural twist. I won’t give anything away here, since unraveling the story is the entire point, but the story kicks off with a woman who inexplicably keeps waking up at 3:33 am every morning, plagued by terrifying nightmares. She ends up getting embroiled in an ongoing murder and kidnapping investigation that is somehow connected.


4 Invincible

No more heroes

Invincible

Cast
Steven Yeun , J.K. Simmons , Sandra Oh

Seasons
2

Format
TV Series

Story By
Robert Kirkman

I promise I’m not intentionally putting two animated shows on this list that aren’t meant for kids as a joke. Invincible is a show that resonates particularly well with people who grew up watching classic superhero cartoons because of how it deconstructs that genre. It begins as a coming-of-age story about the son of the most powerful superhero on Earth but quickly changes tone. It’s a fascinating examination of what the world would really be like with superheroes in it, yet it offers a different take than The Boys, which could have easily taken this slot itself.​​​​​​​


5 The Expanse

Hardcore sci-fi

The Expanse

Cast
Steven Strait , Dominique Tipper , Wes Chatham

Seasons
6

Format
TV Series

The Expanse had a rough first few years, being bounced around before finally finding a home on Prime. This ambitious and unabashedly hardcore sci-fi series fully invests in its lore, characters, politics, and universe. It is a character-driven piece at its core, yet it’s filled with social, political, and militaristic conflicts. This is one of the standout sci-fi series of the past decade, and it will reward you the more you allow yourself to buy into this very possible future.​​​​​​​

6 Fast X

Enjoy the ride


Fast X

Director
Louis Leterrier , Justin Lin

Cast
Vin Diesel , Justin Lin , Zach Dean

Runtime
2h 21m

Format
Movie

The Fast and the Furious franchise has become so over the top and bombastic that it might as well just be a roller coaster ride at this point. Yes, there’s an ongoing story, but it’s mainly just background texture and a flimsy justification for whatever insane stunts and scenarios the crew find themselves in. This is an action movie made by and for action movie fans. You can’t find a better pick on Prime if you want a jolt of adrenaline.​​​​​​​

7 Saltburn

Keeps you guessing


Saltburn

Director
Emerald Fennell

Cast
Barry Keoghan , Jacob Elordi , Rosamund Pike

Runtime
2h 11m

Format
Movie

If you’ll pardon the pun, Saltburn is a slow burn of a movie but never boring. The moment you think you understand what it and its characters are about, everything gets turned on its head. It follows a new Oxford student who struggles to fit in until he befriends a wealthy upperclassman who eventually invites him to stay with him over the summer. What follows is a tense, funny, and dark series of events that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

8 Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

A fantastic adventure

Dungeons and Dragons: Honor among Thieves

Director
John Francis Daley , Jonathan Goldstein

Cast
Chris Pine , Michelle Rodriguez , Rege-Jean Page

Runtime
2h 14m

Format
Movie

Despite being widely ignored while in theaters, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has started to get the recognition it always deserved now that it has hit streaming. If you can look past the name, you will find a film with a lot of heart and charming characters who have a ton of chemistry on an exciting heist adventure that just happens to take place in a fantasy setting. Nothing is too far-fetched or overly “nerdy” in a way that makes it any less fun for the average person to enjoy.


9 Tár

Outstanding character study

TÁR (2022)

Director
Todd Field

Cast
Cate Blanchett , Noemie Merlant , Nina Hoss

Runtime
2h 38m

Format
Movie

While not based on a true story, TÁR could easily fool you into believing it was inspired by actual events. The story centers around a conductor of a Berlin orchestra named Lydia Tár, who is in the conversation for the greatest composer of all time and the first female director of a German orchestra. What follows is a deep and thrilling character study of what the mind of this genius is really like as more and more of her personal scandals come to light. Cate Blanchett’s performance alone is enough to make the nearly two-and-a-half-hour-long runtime fly by.


10 Inglourious Basterds

Unbeatable performances

Inglourious Basterds

Director
Quentin Tarantino

Cast
Brad Pitt , Diane Kruger , Eli Roth

Runtime
2h 33m

Format
Movie

This is yet another long movie, as most Tarantino films are, but it’s absolutely worth the investment. This is arguably the acclaimed director’s best work, combining his compelling writing, tense situations, and interweaving plots into a masterful tale within the well-trodden setting of World War II. The entire film hinges on a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, but the way the multiple pieces and forces move never makes it clear if or how it will end up happening. The first scene alone will give you a perfect example of what you’re in for here, and why Christoph Waltz won an Oscar for his chilling performance.
