Amazon's Top 10 New Movies

Here is my round up of Amazon’s Top 10 New Movies In May 2017.

You won’t regret watching any one of these amazing films.


Lion is about a 5 year old Indian boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta and later gets adopted by a lovely Australian couple. I don’t want to spoil themovie for you so I won’t say any more than that. I will say that this movie made me ball my eyes out the entire time. I have never seen a movie quite as inspiring as this one. I only watched this movie a couple days ago but I still can;t stop thinking about it!



Moonlight is a chronicle of three periods of a boy named Chiron’s life. You will watch Chiron grow from being an adolescent, to a teenager and finally to a man. That is all I can say because I hate giving away the whole story before you watch it. Another one of those cry your eyes out movies because of how much I felt from the characters. This movie makes you feel all of the characters emotions, but times 100. It is definitely one of those movies that changes your perspective.

Get Out

get out

Get Out is about an African American man visiting his Caucasian girlfriend’s mysterious family and their estate. You might think this movie is controversial, but it’s not. Throw away your judgement before you watch this movie and see the truth that underlies in it. This is the best psychological thriller I have seen in a long time. Jordan Peele did an AMAZING job with this movie.



Passengers is about a group of passengers traveling to a distant colony when a glitch occurs and wakes up one of them. The rest you will have to find out for yourself and watch the movie! It is another one of those movies where I can’t give away too much. This is definitely worth the watch. I use to hate Jennifer Lawrence before this movie, now I actually like her.

The Founder


The Founder gives the backstory on how McDonald’s was founded. This one has some twists and turns you didn’t expect..or did you? This movie is inspiring as it is heart breaking. McDonald’s wasn’t exactly founded on all innocence, but what is?

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures gives a different perspective of the people behind some America’s greatest accomplishments during the space race. I cried and laughed so many times in this movie. If you thought you loved Taraji P. Henson before this movie, you are going to be obsessed with her after you watch this film!

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

The final chapter of Resident Evil is here and it is just as awesome as you think it is. If you are a Resident Evil fan, you have to get closure on the story! Check out the final chapter and be blown away.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

fantastic beasts

From J.K. Rowling’s wizard world comes this amazing Harry Potter spin off. I personally liked it better than Harry Potter. There are so many ‘fantastic’ beasts and critters featured in this movie. This film spews creativity and the magical essence is enticing.

Underworld: Blood Wars


Underworld: Blood Wars is by far the BEST Underworld movie, in my opinion. It is the fifth installment in the Underworld franchise, following Underworld: Awakening. If you thought Kate Beckinsale was a bad ass before, you are going to be blown away during this movie. Kate Beckinsale is at her absolute best in this movie and kicks more ass than ever!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

rogue one

What I love most about Rogue One, is the main character is a normal human being. I also love how they make the main character an empowered young woman and not one that plays the victim. Hollywood is really starting to evolve roles these days in all genres of movies and you can see that in Rogue One. Rogue One is a Star Wars story but you don’t have to see the other Star Wars franchise movies to be able to follow along in this one!

  1. I saw Moonlight and Get Out. Get Out was good but CRAZY! Moonlight was good but had NO plot and the ending was disappointing. I am excited to watch Hidden Figures and Fantastic Beasts.

  2. Great list! I haven’t seen fantastic beasts yet. I would love to catch up on some of these movies. I have some oldies that I need to catch up on as well.

  3. I know my husband would go through all these and pick the Star Wars movie but I need to see Hidden Figures or Passengers. Thanks for the ideas for date night.

  4. I cannot wait to watch Passengers – it didn’t get a very good review by critics I don’t think but I still wanna watch it so bad haha! x

  5. Wow you’ve just added 10 more movies to my list! I am behind on movie watching, but hoping to make up for it this summer!

  6. I am actually going to do a movie tonight, so perfect timing with reading your post! I might try the Get Out movie first, because i love psychological thrillers. I hope I’m not too scared watching it…

  7. There are so many of these that I need to see! Rogue One was AMAZING though, we watched it the other day and I was really impressed. As a fan of the Ip Man movies, I loved Donnie Yen.

  8. Omg, i love watching new movies! I watched the passengers in the movie theatre, and totally loved it. I also would love to watch other ones! I didn’t know amazon had movies until I was a prime member!

  9. I can not wait to see Hidden Figures! So sad I missed seeing it in theaters! I haven’t heard of all of these and now I want to check out Lion and Moonlight

  10. I saw a couple of these avaialbe already on Amazon for streaming – aren’t they for a price though? I will have to see if these are free now. There are a few I really want to see

  11. So many great movies. I recently watched Hidden Figures and really liked it. It was a bit slow but such an interesting story. Lion, Rogue One and Moonlight are also at the top of my list. They were are all worth a watch.

  12. I’ve only seen a couple of these but added the rest to my watchlist. We rarely make it out to the theaters so movie nights at home with new releases happen often here. Great suggestions!

  13. Way too many good movies were released in May! I have seen Rogue One, Fantastic Beasts, and Hidden Figures already, but I need to catch up on so many more of these!

  14. I LOVE amazon stream – have no idea what I would do without it!!! I love that it basically has every single title under the sun, unlike Netflix. I have most of these under my “watchlist” but definitely going to look into the ones I don’t!

  15. I need to see LION! I have been hearing so much about it and I know it’s going to be an amazing movie! Plus my husband has lived in India before so it’s going to be great!

  16. WOW! What an awesome line up of movies from Amazon. I love that there are movies that I would enjoy and there are movies that I could watch with the kids. We always have movie nights and these are perfect.

  17. I haven’t been able to watch all the movies that was released this year and last year. It would be nice to catch up and this line up is perfect! I think it’s awesome!

  18. So many movies to watch and it seems like so little time! Thanks so much for sharing the new ones that I have to look forward to.
