New movies are added to Amazon Prime Video every month, while some leave the streaming service. It’s challenging to make a schedule for viewing TV, especially at the end of the month, when many of these changes occur. If you want to see a movie, you should do so before it becomes unavailable. As June rolls in, it’s time to check your watchlist and catch up on some fantastic films before they leave Amazon Prime Video.

Here are five must-watch movies that will be departing the streaming service this month. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy these cinematic gems!

The first Amazon prime movie is “Wrath of men

Looking for an exciting action movie to get you pumped this month? “Wrath of Man,” featuring the dynamic duo of Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie, is just what you need. The narrative unfolds in four distinct acts, each set in a different time period surrounding a deadly armored truck heist. Statham stars as Patrick “H” Hill, an armored truck security guard suspected of involvement in the crime.

While “Wrath of Man” may not be an Oscar contender, it’s packed with thrilling action and unforgettable fight scenes. The film presents multiple perspectives, keeping you engaged as you piece together the mystery. Plus, you’ll enjoy fun cameos from Andy Garcia and Post Malone.

Second one is captivating thriller “The Imitation Game

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in this historical biographical thriller based on Andrew Hodges’ biography “Alan Turing: The Enigma.” The film offers a captivating look at Turing’s life, with Cumberbatch portraying the brilliant but notoriously difficult cryptanalyst who worked for the British government during World War II to decrypt German intelligence messages. Turing is considered a key figure in the development of modern computers and a pioneer in theoretical computer science.

“The Imitation Game” received eight Academy Award nominations, winning Best Adapted Screenplay. While it may not be entirely accurate to the facts, it remains entertaining, gripping, and intriguing, largely due to Cumberbatch’s compelling performance.

Anime lover can watch “Ghost in the Shell

Based on Masamune Shirow’s popular manga, “Ghost in the Shell” is an adult animated neo-noir cyberpunk action thriller that will thrill genre fans. Set in the futuristic year 2029, it follows Motoko Kusanagi (voiced by Atsuko Tanaka, with English dubbing by Mimi Woods), a cyborg public security agent tasked with hunting down a hacker known as Puppet Master.

This technologically rich film, created using both CGI and cel animation, explores themes of self-identity and technological advancement. Its setting, not far removed from our present, reflects contemporary issues surrounding AI and cybernetics.

Since its release nearly two decades ago, “Ghost in the Shell” has developed a cult following and is considered one of the best anime sci-fi films ever made. It has received praise from top directors, including James Cameron, who described it as a “stunning work of speculative fiction” and “the first to reach a level of literary excellence,” according to The Guardian.

If you are a fan of the comedy “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder

If you’re a fan of Ryan Reynolds and looking forward to seeing him in “Deadpool & Wolverine,” you might enjoy his signature sardonic comedic style in “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder.” In this raunchy, silly comedy, Reynolds plays the titular character, a college student who has been enrolled for far too long, spending his time partying and helping undergrads instead of studying. When his father discovers his lifestyle and cuts off his tuition, Wilder devises various schemes to gather the funds to remain the perpetual student.

“National Lampoon’s Van Wilder” was a hit with audiences. While it may not reach the iconic status of other National Lampoon films, it offers a fun, predictable college frat boy story filled with crude humor and ridiculous gags for entertainment.

Award-winning documentary “No End in Sight

For a timely political perspective, especially as Independence Day approaches, consider watching “No End in Sight,” an Academy Award-nominated documentary that delves into the American occupation of Iraq. Through interviews with key figures from the initial occupation and the Office for Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance (ORHA), the film portrays their journey from initial optimism to profound disillusionment.

The documentary also features interviews with former soldiers, authors, and journalists, offering a specific critique of the war. Regardless of your stance, it provides a compelling platform for those intimately involved to explain why they believe the conflict should never have occurred.

Highly acclaimed with nearly perfect scores on Rotten Tomatoes, “No End in Sight” has been praised by critics like David Ansen of Newsweek as a “must-see documentary” that presents a clear, dramatic narrative without resorting to partisan rhetoric. It meticulously exposes the catastrophic errors of the U.S. occupation of Iraq in disturbing detail.

These five films offer a range of genres and emotions, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Make sure to catch them before they leave Amazon Prime Video at the end of June. Grab some popcorn, settle in, and enjoy these cinematic gems!
