In recent years, Amazon Prime Video has exploded in terms of popularity when it comes to viewers’ favorite shows and movies. Some of the platform’s original content like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Fleabag have become surefire hits, raking up critical acclaim and awards alike.

The platform, like other streaming services such as Netflix and Disney+, has a mix of both original content and non-original content it acquired. Read on for some of the best programs to hit the platform this month.

Cloverfield made waves when it came out in 2008 due to its usage of “shaky cam,” creating an unsettling and realistic effect for viewers watching the sci-fi film. The J.J. Abrams-produced movie takes places in New York City, showing people going through a catastrophic night on the island.

‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’

Confessions of a Shopaholic is a delightful watch about what happens when a debt-filled shopaholic starts giving advice via a financial magazine. And of course, there’s added romance between leads played by Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy.

‘The Interview’

Amazon just added The Interview to its roster, and movie fans will remember the accompanying chaos this film brought on in 2014 when Sony experienced a data leak due to the controversial film’s subject matter: two journalists being sent to North Korea to assassinate Kim Jong Un. Seth Rogen and James Franco star in the 2014 comedy.

‘The Truman Show’


What is the Difference Between Amazon Prime Video and Amazon IMDb TV?

The Truman Show is about Truman Burbank’s (Jim Carrey) Big Brother-esque life, which has been documented as a reality show unbeknownst to him since his birth. His entire neighborhood is in on the scheme, and his whole life has been scripted from the start.
