The 15 Best Movies on Amazon Prime [Summer of 2019]

Bored? Looking for something to stream? Tired of tanning and swimming? Here you will find the 15 best movies on Amazon Prime this summer!

It isn’t easy to compile a list of the best movies on Amazon Prime. There is so much to watch, and we are completely different when it comes to taste and requests. That is why I tried to include quite different movies in this list, meaning that you will hopefully find at least a couple of movies that you will find interesting!

Take a look at the trailer above from YouTube presenting the best summer movies on Amazon Prime in 2019 to find out more.

Some of the Amazon Prime highlights this summer

Are you tired of the typical Hollywood movies and want something that has a meaning, a purpose, and not always the happiest ending? The Private War tells the story of a photographer who has traveled into war zones and seen terrible things, all because she wanted to report and see with her own eyes what’s going on. This is a true story and one that might be a real eye-opener!

Even though I can Only Imagine is a Hollywood production, it is still based on an entirely true story, and it is a heart-melting story about love, forgiveness, compassion, hatred, and a beautiful song born out of all of this.

Would you rather watch some traditional Hollywood fun? Then you can go for Baywatch or Overboard for some lame, but still funny, summer movies on Amazon Prime.

Reese Witherspoon in Home Again is a good summer candidate on Amazon Prime this summer.
Do not miss out on Reese Witherspoon on Home Again, also available and recommended to stream on Amazon Prime during the summer of 2019.

In the mood for some action instead? Then Bruce Willis is quite amusing in the movie Death Wish, while Liam Neeson does his part to keep you stuck to the screen in the movie The Commuter. Neither of these movies are great, in fact, Death Wish actually won some Raspberry Awards (the opposite of the Academy Awards). But, that doesn’t mean that it is entirely terrible!

If you liked About Time, go ahead and watch Time Freak as well. It is almost a copy of the story, except for the fact that it doesn’t take the concept to include child-birth and so on.

These are just some of all the amazing content that you can stream on Amazon Prime this summer. Take a look at the entire clip above to get even more recommendations. If you have some personal recommendations that you would like to share with our readers, write a comment and let me know whatever might be on your heart.

Can I watch Amazon Prime during my summer holiday?

Lots of people travel to destinations inside the USA on their summer holidays, and others go abroad for their summer holidays. Is it possible to watch Amazon Prime content during the vacation?

Do you plan to watch some Amazon Prime content during your summer holiday? It is possible, but there are quite a lot of things you need to know.

Amazon Prime on my summer holiday

Worth knowing before you go on your summer vacation

Before you leave, think through these questions:

  • Do you have an Internet connection at your destination?
    Maybe you have forgotten about it, but streaming Amazon Prime content requires an Internet connection. Streaming a movie at Amazon Prime will need a lot of bandwidth, meaning that your mobile data connection will be emptied quickly if you plan on using that one.
  • Have you downloaded the content you need?
    If you do not have a valid Internet subscription, why not download the content you need beforehand? At Amazon Prime, you have the chance to download a lot of content to watch it offline. If you use this, then you can watch it on Android and iOS devices. This function can not be used in Windows, nor with Apple TV, nor with Chromecast.
  • Will you be on domestic or foreign soil?
    You might go to a hotel with a WiFi connection, but if that hotel is located in Mexico, you are still in trouble. That isn’t only true of Mexico, but anywhere in the world that is not the United States. Amazon Prime content is mostly available to US customers only. The consequence is error messages showing up if you try to watch the content abroad. There are ways to bypass such geo-blocks when streaming Amazon Prime abroad, but it makes things more complicated.

My final advises for those who want to stream Amazon Prime on the summer vacation

  • Read through the questions above, and make arrangements based on those. If you download content, you will be able to watch it abroad as well, as long as you do not have an active data connection or WiFi connection available in that given country. Turn off your data connection and WiFi for that to work.
  • Sign up for a VPN if you want to watch online Amazon Prime content when abroad.
  • Check whether you will have a WiFi connection available on your domestic/foreign location or not.

I hope you will have a fantastic holiday. If you have further questions or comments related to streaming Amazon Prime on your vacation, write in the comment field beneath.


Most popular movies at July 2017

Are you looking for a movie to rent or buy on Amazon this summer, and want to find out which are the most popular movies available at the moment? Look no further!

While preparing for Prime Day 2017, you might want to stream a movie on Amazon. If you have a Prime subscription (which you probably have, since you look forward to Prime Day), then you can find my list presenting the best Prime movies for the summer of 2017. But, not all movies are included with Amazon Prime, and if you want to actually buy or rent a movie, these are the most popular movies available at right now.

The movies presented in this list is based on the best sellers list at Things change all the time, so by the time you check the list at Amazon, these movies might no longer be among the best sellers, but currently these are some of the most popular movies at

Most popular movies on in July 2017

The Boss Baby

It might not be a surprise that this movie is at the top of the list. It did not receive that good critics really, but what is better than a children’s movie for the summer holiday. Parents and grandparents want to keep their children busy, and with a brand new movie released on DVD and Blu-Ray in this period, it is a sure success in family homes.

The Lego Batman Movie

Yet another movie that is an example of what I mentioned earlier. Children love to watch TV, and when you get a combination of Lego and Batman in the same movie, it is a guaranteed success. This movie actually received quite a lot of good critics, and currently has a 7,4/10 score at iMDB.

Beauty and the Beast

It wasn’t long ago that this movie brought millions of people to the theaters all across the world, and now it is available for purchase at The story of this girl who is taken captive by the beast has captivated audience for decades. Now it has returned, and Emma Watson is simply stunning in her role as the beauty. I did not expect much from the movie, but I actually liked it a lot as I watched it. No wonder it is a big success at Amazon as well!

Whenever Marvel does something, it sells. And when Hugh Jackman returns to play Logan in one more movie in the X-Men series, it has got to become a hit. The movie has a fantastic 8,2/10 score at iMDB and at it has a 4,1/5 stars as its score. In this movie Logan is trying to hide away from the world with Professor X, but when mutants start showing up pursued by dark forces, Logan has got to step up to help.


John Wick 2

I watched the first movie only a couple of months ago, and it was one crazy action movie with violence in every corner. It started slowly, but once it arrived, it was shooting and fighting all the time. Now the second movie with Keanu Reeves in the role as John Wick is back, and I will try to watch it myself within shortly. The movie has a 7,7/10 score at iMDB and a 4,1/5 score at Amazon. If you like action movies, this is gonna be a treat for you.

Table 19

Anna Kendrick plays the role as a girl who is placed at table 19 during a wedding. That is the table of the losers, and even though she dislikes it strongly in the start, things are about to change. This might not be the best movie ever (only 5,9/10 score at iMDB and 3,3/5 at Amazon), but it is a nice light movie to watch if you just want to relax.

The Zookeepers Wife

If you are in for a more serious movie, then The Zookeepers Wife might be perfect for you. Most of us have seen one or more movies about families hiding Jews during the Second World War. In this movie the same is happening, only that a family hide fugitives in their very own zoo. At Amazon this movie has a 4,4/5 score, meaning that the audience really finds this to be a good movie.

The movies mentioned so far have all been quite normal action movies or with serious stories. Would you rather stream a completely crazy cop comedy instead? Watch CHIPs. This movie stars Dax Shepard and  Michael Peña as two cops who does almost everything wrong. But, now they have to go undercover to find out who is leaking information from the inside of the police department. At the same time one officer has to work hard on his marriage with the beautiful Kristen Bell.


If you did not know it, then Dax Shepard is actually married to Kristen Bell in real life as well, and he was not only partaking in the movie, he also directed it.

Are you ready to face the summer?

If you have read through this list, I hope you have gotten some ideas for what to stream this evening. If I had to pick three of these movies to watch myself, I would probably pick The Zookeeper’s Wife, CHIPs and Logan. Which movies would you pick from this list?
