There are always action movies on Amazon Prime Video, just not necessarily the ones you’ve been looking for. Because of films coming and going, the action lineup can be a little erratic on Prime Video, especially when even flicks like the latest James Bond movie, No To Time Die, don’t stick around for long.

One new addition that won’t be going anywhere else is Prime Video’s remake of Road House. Action lovers will also enjoy Payback, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and The Covenant. Those are just a few of the titles on our list of the best action movies on Amazon Prime Video right now. To find the rest, just keep scrolling down.

The best shows on Disney+ right now (May 2024)

The landscape for new shows on Disney+ is about as barren as the deserts of Tatooine in the Star Wars universe. That's what happens when corporate mandates demand profitability at all costs, even if it means cutting the original programming down to almost nothing. In May, Disney+ subscribers only have a new season of Doctor Who and Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi. No other shows are premiering this month, not even via National Geographic.

There is a new series, Star Wars: The Acolyte, coming next month. Our only question is simple: Will there be any other new Disney+ shows to go along with it? Or is a nearly empty programing slate the new normal?  We'll find out soon. In the meantime, keep reading for the rest of our picks for the best shows on Disney+ right now.

The 50 best anime on Hulu right now

Between its fantasy, sci-fi, and comedy offerings, fans can rest assured they will find an anime TV series or movie to suit their interests.

Customers should also consider the Disney Bundle if they want more on top of Hulu's anime library. Audiences will get access to content spanning Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu's ad-based tier. That means all the Star Wars, Marvel Studios, National Geographic, and sports content fans could want alongside Hulu's anime catalog.
