The Other Zoey (2023)

The Other Zoey | Official Trailer | Prime Video

Zoey Miller (Josephine Langford) doesn’t really believe in romantic love. She’s more into practical love and focused on her university studies anyway. But when Zach (Drew Starkey), the school’s soccer star, is injured and gets amnesia, she’s the first face he sees when he comes to. He immediately thinks she’s his girlfriend, who is also coincidentally named Zoey. To make things worse, the doctors tell her that to avoid upsetting him until he officially heals and regains his memory, she should just go along with it.

Unsurprisingly, Zoey starts to realize that she and Zach actually have a lot in common. She becomes close with his family, though things get hairy when the “real” Zoey arrives. The Other Zoey is a sweet, heartwarming, predictable rom-com that’s the perfect distraction when you need one.

Yesterday (2019)

Yesterday Trailer #1 (2019) | Movieclips Trailers

If you love The Beatles and haven’t yet watched Yesterday, you’re missing out. Himesh Patel is perfect as Jack, a struggling musician who, following a power outage and being hit by a bus, suddenly discovers that the world has turned upside down: The Beatles never existed, and when he sings their songs, everyone goes nuts, believing him to be an incredible songwriter. He’s even being invited to perform on big stages with people like Ed Sheeran.

Jack struggles with whether to go along with it or tell the truth — though who would believe him anyway? Imagine telling people that the songs you’re performing were actually written and performed decades ago by one of the greatest bands of all time, and no one remembers but you! The movie sees Jack travel to iconic locations relating to The Beatles, from Strawberry Fields to Penny Lane and the grave of Eleanor Rigby. The romantic part comes from Jack’s childhood friend and manager Ellie (The Iron Claw‘s Lily James), who, it turns out, was his inspiration all along. By the end, Jack realizes what’s truly important in life. But it’s the musical numbers and interesting plot that make Yesterday a heartwarmingly entertaining watch.

Stream Yesterday on Amazon Prime Video.

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021)

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things - Official Trailer

Mark (Kyle Allen) finds himself stuck in a Groundhog Day-like time loop, living the same day over and over again. When he meets a young woman named Margaret (Kathryn Newton) who is enduring the same fate, they begin to lean on one another. Together, they try and break the time loop. But oddly, it seems Margaret is fine reliving this same day over and over again and has no interest in getting out.

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a wonderful sci-fi rom-com that will remind you to stop and smell the roses, soaking in every moment of every day. It’s a familiar and heartfelt story about two people on different paths, each with their own reasons for being there.

3 TV shows like Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender you should watch now
The cast of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

The first season of Avatar: The Last Airbender has arrived, and as predicted, it's already No. 1 on the list of the most popular shows on Netflix. However, unlike the beloved animated series that inspired this live-action show, Avatar's first season has only eight episodes. Knowing Netflix, a gap of two or more years between seasons is not uncommon, so it could be quite a while before a second season of Avatar: The Last Airbender arrives.

If you're looking for something else to watch in the meantime, you won't have to go far. Netflix is the streaming home for both the original Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series and its spinoff sequel show, The Legend of Korra. Netflix also has a few live-action options, which we picked for the three TV shows like Avatar: The Last Airbender that you should watch.

The best anime on Amazon Prime Video right now
Still of Fushi and their white wolf in To Your Eternity.

Amazon Prime Video is one of the most consistent platforms for watching new content, and that includes plenty of content for anime fans looking for a diverse selection of TV shows and movies alike. The offerings have only gotten better as of late, as Prime Video bolstered its anime catalog thanks to the addition of Crunchyroll, making it an optional premium channel that lets customers streamline both subscriptions in one app.

While it's the same as paying for both separately, this makes streaming anime even more accessible. Still, despite the genre's greater accessibility in general in recent years, it can come across as intimidating for beginners to know where to start. We've curated a monthly updated guide on some of the best anime to watch on Amazon Prime Video. That includes the service's native offerings, plus those available through the premium Crunchyroll channel.
