What’s New on Amazon: October 2016

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Amazon Prime and Amazon Instant Video add new movies and TV shows to their libraries. Some of these may also have previously been on Amazon, only to have been removed and then added back. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Amazon and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

The spirit of Peggy Olson lives on: Good Girls Revolt (2016)

Let’s transport ourselves back to New York City in 1969, shall we? Good Girls Revolt tells the story about what happens when a group of women demand equal treatment at the newspaper where they work, spawning the perfect crossover between Mad Men and The Newsroom. Never mess with driven, determined female researchers, y’all.

The end of a teen dystopian dynasty: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (2015)

Try not to get too emotional while watching the final outing of The Hunger Games franchise, because Jennifer Lawrence shooting fiery arrows and running around the Capitol will live on in teen dystopialandia for all of eternity. (You may get emotional watching Philip Seymour Hoffman, though.)

Darcy vs. Bennet: Pride and Prejudice (2005)

It’s a scientific fact that you can never watch too many Jane Austen adaptations. This is certainly no exception, with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen portraying the admirable Elizabeth Bennet and the aloof Fitzwilliam Darcy, a.k.a. the greatest slow-burning romance of the Georgian era. Swoooon!

Trial and error: Goliath (2016)

Billy Bob Thornton headlines this prestige legal drama, which finds him portraying a disgraced lawyer turned ambulance chaser who’s tasked with a difficult wrongful-death lawsuit. His one last shot at redemption contains a deadly conspiracy  of course!  but he’ll stop at nothing to discover the truth, even if that means sparring away with his old firm, who may or not not be involved.

Never too old for this shit: Lethal Weapon (1987)

Three sequels and one television show later, Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh continue to prosper in pop culture. Revisit the film where the buddy-cop extravaganza began, with the lethal duo (Mel Gibson! Danny Glover!) finding themselves deep in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles drug and prostitution rings. Naturally, they coin many a catchphrase in the process.
