The 5 best Amazon movies for the weekend

Here are some great Amazon movies to enjoy on New Year’s Eve.

Lady of the Manor (December 31)

The comedy Lady of the Manor was written and directed by brothers Justin Long and Christian Long. This movie is a comedy of friends starring Melanie Lynskey, Judy Greer, Justin Long, Ryan Phillippe, Luis Guzmán and Patrick Duffy.

Hannah (Lynskey), whose life is a mess, takes a job at Wadsworth Manor as a tour guide portraying Lady Wadsworth, a former mansion resident. When he encounters the ghost of Lady Wandsworth, he tells Hannah that he must fix her ways, otherwise he will haunt her forever.

End of time (December 31)

End of time is a new romantic film starring Bella Thorne, Benjamin Mascolo, Nikolay Moss, Roberto Davide, Sebastiano Pigazzi and Giulio Brizzi.

Vivien (Thorne) is a physics student who feels that life is a formula to follow, putting her happiness on the sidelines as she tries to get accepted to a recognized university. Roy (Mascolo) is troubled by a childhood injury that prevents him from making the most of his potential. They will both experience something that will help them start living their lives now instead of postponing it for things they think they should do.

13 Spooky (Departure 31 December)

The horror movie 13 Spooky was originally released in 2013 and is Lowell Dean’s directorial debut. Six undergraduates head to the desert island of Eerie Strait, which was used to hold lifers. Unknown to the students, illegal biological experiments were performed on the prisoners on the island. The students travel to the island to conduct scientific on-site examinations on the bodies of the detainees.

Of course, things go wrong, walkies malfunction and all sorts of other misfortunes turn what should have been a simple field test into a complete horror.

We were soldiers

We were soldiers is a dramatization of the battle of Ia Drang based on the novel We used to be soldiers… and young (1992) by Lieutenant General (Ret.) Hal Moore and reporter Joseph L. Galloway.

Set during the Vietnam War, the film shows the horrific mission of soldiers as they are ordered to exterminate the North Vietnamese attackers responsible for an attack on a US base. Unaware of how many soldiers the enemy consists of, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Hal Moore (Mel Gibson) must lead his men blindly into battle.

Back at the base, Moore’s wife, Julia (Madeleine Stowe), takes responsibility for the army’s wives and delivers telegrams alerting their closest relatives to the soldiers’s deaths. This story is heartbreaking and moving to see women being tied up during this horrible time.

If you’ve never watched this movie, you really should watch it.

Under the Tuscan sun

The romantic comedy of 2003 Under the Tuscan sun is an enjoyable film based on the 1996 memoirs of Frances Mayes.

Francis (Diane Lane), a recently divorced writer from San Francisco, embarks on a life-changing trip to Tuscany. After her divorce, she loses her writing inspiration and her boyfriend encourages her to take a trip to find some inspiration. When she arrives, she sees some signs that she feels her future is showing her.

This is a wonderful romantic comedy and Diane Lane shines in this story.
