UPDATE: It's getting hot in here, all thanks to the inclusion of Michael Mann's crime film masterpiece Heat to our list, which is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. Find out why you should add it to your watchlist on page 6! 

And, if you're in the mood for a historically (and scientifically) accurate space film, you should also check out Salyut-7, an impressive film about Russian Cosmonauts that gives Hollywood a run for its money! You can read more about that on Page 2!

When it comes to streaming media, Australians now have access to an incredible wealth of video content that can be instantly viewed with only a few screen taps or button presses. 

Much like Netflix, Stan and Foxtel Now, Amazon Prime Video has a huge selection of movies on offer, with something for absolutely everybody. The problem is, the sheer amount of titles in the service's content library can be a little overwhelming for those who want to jump in and start watching immediately. 

If you're sick of browsing endlessly, you've come to the right place – we've done the job for you, selecting a number of fantastic films (as well as some delightfully trashy ones) for every occasion, so all you have to do is sit back and start your viewing odyssey.

Most of the films on this list, which has been curated by TechRadar editors, are backed up with ratings from IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes – so that you don't have to sift through the muck. That said, if you want to switch your brain off and get stuck into some cheesy, low-brow entertainment, we've got that stuff, too. 

Here are ten of the best movies found within the following pages of our best movies on Amazon Prime video list:

1) The Big Lebowski

2) How to Train Your Dragon

3) A Quiet Place

4) No Country For Old Men

5) Heat

6) The Godfather

7) The Social Network

8) Taxi Driver

9) Men in Black

10) Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

That's just a taste of the awesome library that Amazon Prime Video has to offer in Australia – and it can only continue to grow from here!

We'll keep this best-of list up to date with the latest movies that are must-watch, so make sure you keep checking back to see all the great stuff that's been added.
