OK, Amazon Prime Video. We see you.


The streaming service is holding its own at the start of the new year as it brings on a long list classic and recent films, new series, and a handful of Prime Originals definitely worth watching.

One Prime Original film in particular that already has Oscar buzz is ​One Night in Miami​, Regina King's directorial debut. The film reflects on a fictional, but powerful meeting between Malcom X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Cassius Clay (Eli Goree), Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge), and Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) on the night of Feb. 25, 1964 as they discuss their role as successful Black men during the Civil Rights Movement.


Another timely and powerful Prime Original film to watch is ​Herself,​ about a mother who escapes the abuse of her husband and struggles to keep a job and find a home for her kids—so she builds one herself.
