Take a look at our top 10 new Amazon Prime Video movies for November 2022.
One of Amazon Prime Video’s biggest new releases this month is the Bethan Roberts adaptation “My Policeman,” This film features Harry Styles portraying a cop in 1950s Brighton, who marries Emma Corrin (a schoolteacher) and has a romantic relationship with David Dawson (a man curator at a museum). The film was released in theaters in October before making its Prime Video streaming debut this month, and is a solid pick if you’re in the mood for a heavy drama.
These are the People we Hate on Weddings
Another major Prime Video movie this month is a romantic comedy starring an all-star cast. “The People We Hate at the Wedding” is based on the Grant Ginder novel of the same name and stars Kristen Bell and Ben Platt as siblings who reluctantly agree to attend their estranged half-sister’s wedding (played by Cynthia Addai-Robinson) alongside their mother (played by Allison Janney). Claire Scanlon (“The Good Place”From a screenplay of Lizzie Molyneux Logelin and Wendy Molyneux, he directs (“Bob’s Burgers”).
It’s officially Christmas movie viewing time. “Arthur Christmas” This holiday movie should make it into your annual rotation. Aardman Studios is behind this animated film. “Wallace and Gromit” The film follows Arthur, a poor but kind-hearted son of Santa Claus (voiced in James McAvoy). Arthur and his ragtag crew (including Bill Nighy’s grandfather) set out on Christmas Eve with Arthur to deliver one final present. This film gives a new spin to the Santa Claus myth, showing it more as a family enterprise with Arthur being the outcast.
The Cabin in the Woods
One of the greatest horror movies of this century. “The Cabin in the Woods” This is an exciting, original entry in the horror genre. It served as a challenge to other filmmakers not to rely on traditional tropes. A group of teenagers (including Jesse Williams and Chris Hemsworth) travel to remote cabins in the woods. All is not what it appears to be, however, as they’re hounded by haunted delights that seem like tropes straight out of a bad horror movie. That’s the point of this meta story, which takes a number of twists and turns before arriving at its bold, unforgettable ending. Drew Goddard directs the film from a screenplay that he wrote with Joss Whedon.
Kingdom of Heaven (Director’s Cut)
If you’ve never seen the director’s cut of Ridley Scott’s 2005 historical epic “Kingdom of Heaven,” This one should be a top priority. The film is Scott’s chronicle of the Crusades through the eyes of a French blacksmith played by Orlando Bloom, but the director’s cut of the film – which is nearly an hour longer – paints a more complete picture of the conflict and the characters involved, particularly Edward Norton’s masked King Baldwin. This is one of Scott’s best films, hands down.
The Road to Perdition
After being awarded the Oscar for Best Picture, “American Beauty,” Sam Mendes is a filmmaker who tackled a movie of a completely different type: the neonoir crime thriller “Road to Perdition.” Filmed in 1931 by Tom Hanks, it stars Tom Hanks, a mob enforcer, who must go on the runs with his son to seek revenge against the man who killed their whole family. Paul Newman is the mobster and Jude Law, a hired hitman who are on the hunt for them, plays Jude Law. It’s a gorgeously crafted crime drama, featuring Oscar-winning cinematography from Conrad L. Hall.
You can do a lot of things. “A Christmas Carol” around, but 1988’s “Scrooged” It remains a popular choice for many and with good reason. Bill Murray is the Scrooge TV executive, who has plans for a grandiose TV show. “hip” His network will air a live adaptation of Charles Dickens’ story on Christmas. As happens, he’s visited by three ghosts who force him to take a cold, hard look at his cold, hard life, Murray toes the line between comedy and drama in the vein of his performance in “Groundhog Day.” This one’s not only delightfully meta, but feels massive in scope thanks to having “Superman” and “The Goonies” director Richard Donner in the director’s chair.
