See the list of the best new movies on Amazon Prime Video in June below.
There is no time to die
Daniel Craig’s latest film about Bond is both epic and intimate. “No Time to Die” puts an emotional button on an emotional ride, as Craig finally inspired 007 permission to feel through his widely acclaimed series. In his final course, we begin with an extensive prologue that puts a button (for now) on his relationship with Dr. Madeleine Swan (played by Lea Seydoux) after her debut in “Specter”. But when a figure from Swan’s past returns years later (played by Rami Malek), Bond is drawn back into a cat-and-mouse game with the highest stakes he has ever faced. The rich supportive turns of Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas, as well as a refreshing visual taste by director Cary Joji Fukunaga ensure that with “No Time to Die”, Bond comes out on a high note.
A classic comedy, “Groundhog Day” is also probably the best “time loop” movie ever made. Bill Murray stars as a distracted meteorologist trapped in a small town wondering if the iconic piglet will see his shadow or not. After a very long and miserable day, Murray’s character falls asleep, only to wake up and relive the same day – Groundhog Day – over and over again. The film is definitely hilarious, but also philosophically fascinating as it examines questions about the ethics and legitimacy of a selfless act. And Andie MacDowell is wonderful.
Call me by your name
While Armie Hammer is impossible to ignore, “Call Me by Your Name” is also one of the most captivating and deeply felt love stories in recent memory. Director Luca Guadagnino recalls a summer in 1983, when a young boy named Elio (Timothee Chalamet) travels with his parents to spend a few months in northern Italy. While there, a slightly older man (played by Hamer) comes to study under Elio’s father, and he and Elio play a game of will that / they will not do until their passions are too intense to ignore. Guadagnino’s film production is amazing and brings an empathy to this heartbreaking story.
Widely regarded by Star Trek fans as one of the best “Trek” movies ever made – despite not actually being a “Star Trek” movie – “Galaxy Quest” is a hilarious riff in the iconic science fiction franchise fantasy. Tim Allen stars as the disgraced star of a popular science fiction TV show that now appears in conferences (unfavorably) with his former co-stars. But when the crew is chased by real aliens who have confused their TV series with “historical documents”, these selfish actors come over their heads.
The Wolf of Wall Street
You’ve seen the memes, now watch the real movie. Director Martin Scorsese’s 2013 epic “The Wolf of Wall Street” is a strong accusation of greed and capitalism as it tells the true story of stockbroker Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo Di Caprio in Leonardo DiCaprio. Almost three hours long, this dark comedy is sure to give you your money, but in addition to being hilarious it is also a masterfully crafted look at the culture of toxic wealth. Margot Robbie, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bernthal and others also make up the film’s A-list ensemble.
If you’re looking for a fun, female movie to watch, take a look at “Whip It!” The 2009 sports drama marks Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut and takes place in the world of roller derby, with a cast full of colorful characters, as he follows a teenager from Texas (played by Elliot Page) who joins a roller derby team from a whim. The cast also includes Juliette Lewis, Kristen Wiig, Jimmy Fallon and Barrymore herself.
Mr. Fox is fantastic
One for children and for adults, Wes Anderson’s first animated film “Fantastic Mr. Fox” is a delight and a wonderful sight to behold. Based on the eponymous story by Roald Dahl, the film follows a fox (voiced by George Clooney) who is always in trouble, putting his family in danger. When he steals a trio of farmers, he endangers the entire furry community. Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe and Owen Wilson also appear in this amazing stop-motion animated film.
