Amazon Prime Video now offers a choice of movies and series. What are the essentials of the broadcasting platform? Here are our recommendations, sorted by category.
How to subscribe
Amazon Prime Video is a service included in the Amazon Premium subscription. We have summarized all the options for this subscription here.
Each month, the Amazon Prime Video platform welcomes new content. Today, despite an interface still as dusty, the rival of Netflix, which weighs 150 million subscribers, has thousands of hours of entertainment to offer. But how do you sort out what you absolutely have to see and what could be a waste of time? We help you see more clearly.
We have made our selection in several genres which seem relevant to us. For each, we have chosen a series and a film to satisfy all your desires for evenings. These recommendations are brought to evolve according to the changes within the Amazon Prime Video catalog (some programs end up disappearing).
Series: This is Us
Center on members of the same family having the distinction of being born on the same day, the series This is Us surprises by the moving simplicity of the intrigues what sharing. This is what makes her successful: rather than forcing the features, she strives to hang up the spectators of situations that could happen to everyone. Between joys and misfortunes. Between laughter and tears. We let ourselves be carried.
Movie: Top Gun
Guilty pleasure, Top Gun? Certainly. But the fact remains that the film by the late Tony Scott brother of Ridley gave birth to certain vocations in teenagers (who all wanted to look like Maverick and become a fighter pilot). Worn by a Tom Cruise in sex symbol mode, Top Gun looks like a harmless nanard. He has everything to be loved and we await the rest with some impatience.
PS: we see you singing Take my Breath Away in the shower.
The series that deal with issues related to transidentity do not run the streets and even less those who do so with accuracy, humility and success. Transparent is one of them. He follows a mother of a transgender family in his daily life, with his doubts and his joys. Jill Soloway signs a series on the touching family and masterfully interpreted and directed.
Movie: I met the devil
A secret agent helplessly witnesses the murder of his pregnant fiancé by telephone. Decided to track down the killer, he will gradually tip over and become the monster he is chasing, using questioning methods of torture. Under these airs of revenge film as we have seen so many, I met the devil reveals a melancholy blackness embodied wonderfully by star actor Lee Byung-hun.
Series: Friday Night Lights
Produced by Peter Berg, Friday Night Lights follows the daily life of a high school American football team located in Texas. You don't need to know the rules of the sport to appreciate this series, which is much more interested in the complicated relationships that punctuate the lives of students dragged between their dreams and their disappointments. Not to mention the birth of many stars, such as Taylor Kitsch and Michael B. Jordan. Friday Night Lights, these are five seasons rich in motions.
Movie: American History X
American History X is certainly one of the most significant films of the 1990s, showing racism with raw and raw violence. In 2020, humanity is far from having learned about tolerance and deserves a reminder.
Series: The Office
Do you want to laugh endlessly? Immerse yourself in the daily life of Dunder-Mifflin Paper, where comic actor Steve Carrell plays the bosses in a fake documentary on the life of his business. Exaggerated photograph of what we live in the office (except Humanoid), nourished by endearing characters, The office is a real breath of fresh air.
Movie: The Big Lebowski
In 1998, we celebrated the victory of the Blues at the World Cup. And we also watched in a loop The Big Lebowski, summit of humor of the Coen brothers in which a lazy nickname the Duke is taken for a millionaire by thugs. Sen follows a palanque of situations all more wacky than the other centers on a loser nerv because we have urine on his carpet. There are fights that really deserve to be told.
Series: The Boys
The Amazon punch series. While Disney has never raised as much money as it did with its Marvel Cinematic Universe, the platform adapts irreverent comics The boys. The result is an acidic, bloody, sometimes shocking series. Do you hate superheroes? You will like The boys, which turns them into rednecks concerned with their image, like vulgar marketing products of a sick society become cynical. Strongly season 2.
If people waited impatiently The Irishman, it is because, a few years earlier, we had already had the right to a meeting between Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, two monuments of the Septime Art. It was for Heat, where Michael Mann confronts a cop Al Pacino, obsd and a thug Robert De Niro, disillusioned in the streets of Los Angeles. For almost three hours, we attend the cat and mouse game, until the meeting, worship. Never really gal, Heat later became a source of inspiration.
Series: The Expanse
Cancel by SyFy, The Expanse Was saved by Amazon Prime Video for a season 4 which acts as conscration. Season 5 is already confirmed. In this future, humanity has colonized space, from Mars to the introductory belt. Far from being a utopia, this configuration has led to deep divisions. Between high-level political and diplomatic issues, solid scientific odyssey and sublime special effects, The Expanse is quite simply the panthon of the biggest science fiction series.
Movie: Minority Report
Adapted from a novel by Philip K. Dick, considered leprous of the founding principles of contemporary SF, Minority Report anticipate the near future where crimes could be stopped before they are committed. Everything is going well until a plot involving the hero interpreted by Tom Cruise is revealed. Excellent entertainment by Steven Spielberg.
The essentials at the start of 2020
Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy, respectively creator and author / producer of BoJack Horseman, totally change universe with Undone. It is an animated series using the principle of rotoscopy (which uses real shots to reproduce them in animation, which gives a comic side). Besides this aesthetic distinction already seen in the film A Scanner Darkly, Undone has a brilliant and captivating flavor in the background. Where a young woman surviving an accident develops a new relationship with time.
Movie: Fight Club
Unclassifiable, Fight Club involves Edward Norton and Brad Pitt in a summit of self-destruction. Where a person with a double personality sinks little by little into an anarchic delirium, to the sound of the Pixies. Real trip the plastic as perfect as the abdominals of Brad Pitt, Fight Club is a must and you must see it to be able to talk about it in the evening.
Super Size Me
A daring man sets himself up for a dangerous challenge: for 30 days, under the supervision of three doctors, he will only eat within the McDonalds brand to see the impact of these products on health. It will take several months to recover. Either what we definitely eat fast food.
