The Best Movies On Amazon Prime This March:

19. 'Chicago' (2002)

  • Director: Rob Marshall
  • Who's in it? Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere

When cabaret star Velma Kelly and aspiring star Roxie Hart find themselves both on death row for murdering their lovers in '20s Chicago, they must turn to a renowned attorney to help them out. A rousing and energetic spectacle, Rob Marshall's adaptation of the sexy Broadway musical will undoubtedly sprinkle Amazon Prime audiences with some much needed razzle-dazzle from March onwards.

18. 'What We Do In The Shadows'

  • Director: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi
  • Who's in it? Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer

Boasting the comedic genius of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, What We Do In The Shadows is another — and arguably the best — take on the vampire genre. The quirky mockumentary follows the low-key lives of three vampire flatmates as they attempt to blend into the modern world of humans. Naturally, things don't exactly go to plan.

17. 'Hook' (1991)

  • Who's in it? Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, Julia Roberts

A Robin Williams classic, 1991's Hook continues to be one of the most beloved family movies out there. Acting as a sequel to J.M.

It's available on Amazon Prime from February.

Nominated for an Academy Award, American History X is a hard-hitting crime drama that sees a former neo-Nazi and former white supremacist attempt to stop his brother from following the same wrong path in life. Currently streaming on Amazon Prime, this may well be one of the most powerful movies you will ever see.

14. 'Swiss Army Man' (2016)

  • Director: Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert
  • Who's in it? Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe and Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Who wouldn't want to see a flatulent Daniel Radcliffe playing a corpse in Swiss Army Man? As one of the most stand-out movies of 2016, the adventure comedy introduces a tale about a hopeless man stranded on a desert island with nothing but a talking dead body to make his journey home with. Yes, it's as batshit crazy and depressing as it sounds.

13. 'Café Society' (2016)

  • Director: Woody Allen
  • Who's in it? Steve Carell, Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg

Written and directed by Woody Allen, Café Society is a charming story about a young man who moves to 1930s Los Angeles to work for a talent agent, who also happens to be his uncle. While there, he also ends up falling in love with his assistant.

With wonderful performances from an array of big Hollywood names, this lightweight comedy falls in line with Allen's typical vibe and is once again, a film of rare beauty.

10. 'Fatal Attraction' (1987)

  • Director: Adrian Lyne
  • Who's in it? Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, Anne Archer

Perhaps one of the most hard-hitting thrillers of the late '80s, Fatal Attraction continues to haunt audiences all over the world to this day.

Before he was Heathcliff, Bane and Mad Max, Tom Hardy was a hot-headed man originally sentenced to seven years in prison for robbery, before having his time extended to three decades in solitary confinement.
