One of the movies that stand out is definitely "Reservoir Dogs". This flick aged really well, and although first, it's one of Quentin Tarantino's finest and most popular works. If you don't enjoy bloodshed and would like to watch one of the great drama/mystery movies of the 90's, "Six Degrees of Separation" should be one of your top picks. Young Will Smith will induce a little comedy to the mix in one of the pictures that made his name in Holywood. However, if you would like something more action-packed, try out "American Ninja" as he takes on a bunch of mercenaries with the mix of martial art techniques and good old American kick-assery. One of the most exciting crime movies on the list is definitely David Fincher's "Zodiac", a story about an amateur detective obsessed with finding a mysterious San Francisco killer from the 60's and 70's.

Not all new releases will be from the previous decades. If you want to check out some newer titles that got made in the year behind us, you can watch "A Ghost Story", "The Midwife", or "Wonderstruck", which is an Amazon Original. Kids have something to be excited for as well since Harry Potter movies will be available on Amazon Channels.
