Prime April
By  · Published on March 29th, 2020

Amazon Prime Video is the only streaming service with a cost that also gets you free shipping, and that my friends is a deal. They’re in the original programming game, but their biggest offering remains the ton of films available to watch anytime for Prime members.

The complete list of titles hitting Amazon Prime this month — April 2020 — is below, but first I’m going to shower some affection and point some eyeballs towards a few specific titles.

Amazon Prime Pick of the Month

I Am Legend

What, too on the nose? I don’t care. I Am Legend (2007) is a solid watch under even the best of circumstances because it’s a thrilling, well-made post-apocalyptic tale with a terrific Will Smith performance at its heart. My favorite adaptation of Richard Matheson’s novel remains 1971’s The Omega Man, but this Francis Lawrence-directed feature finds its own glories, traumas, and excitement. Watch it and pretend we’re not all the damn German Shepherd.

New Movies and TV Seasons!

The Lighthouse

April brings plenty of new arrivals in the form of brand new titles, and some look pretty appealing. Tales from the Loop (Amazon Original – Season 1) premieres on April 3rd and offers a sci-fi experience as a small town deals with the scientific experiment beneath their feet. Les Misérables (Amazon Original movie, 2019) makes itself heard on April 10th and is a modern day take on the classic tale set amid the Parisian riots from a few years ago. The Lighthouse (2019) starts shining on April 16th, and by then we should all be familiar with the growing sense of madness and fart smell in our own homes. Finally, Bosch (Amazon Original – Season 6) arrives on April 17th, and if you’re like me, this series will continue to be a comfort as Titus Welliver nails the character and the show kills it with the tone of an unfolding mystery.

Remakes You Probably Missed Because They’re Meh But Now You Have Plenty of Time to Watch


Bangkok Dangerous (2010) is a remake of the Pang Brothers’ own Thai release from 2000, and while it’s not necessarily an improvement it does add Nicolas Cage into the mix which is rarely a bad thing. Starting April 29th, you can also go dancing with Footloose (2011) which, while a big step down in the charisma and personality department, does feature a stern-faced turn from Dennis Quaid.
