It’s never too late to celebrate Women’s History Month. The month-long celebration happens every March, and this year, Max has decided to honor women everywhere with a programming schedule designed to highlight movies, TV shows, and documentaries that place women in front of and behind the camera, as well as subjects and themes that showcase the female experience.

Across its multiple brands and franchises, Max has refreshed its “In Her Voice” collection and broken the considerable library down into such categories as “Strong Leading Ladies,” “Comedy Showcase,” “Iconic Ensembles,” and more. Some highlights include recent TV shows such as True Detective: Night Country starring Jodie Foster and Kali Reis and The Regime with Kate Winslet, as well as past seasons of such popular series as And Just Like That…, Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Insecure, Selena + Chef, Hacks, Abbott Elementary, and The Sex Lives of College Girls.

Max has movies too, with plenty of women-centric stories driving such recent hits as Barbie and The Color Purple, as well as modern classics like The Devil Wears Prada, Legally Blonde, and A Star is Born. Documentaries are also available to watch, with Tina (about the iconic singer and actress Tina Turner), Being Mary Tyler Moore, and We Will Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educate being notable standouts in a stellar lineup of nonfiction hits.

The following is a complete list of titles that Max has curated to celebrate Women’s History Month in 2024. All are worth a watch (or two, or three …):

Zombies infiltrate a train in Train to Busan.

If you love horror, sometimes all you really need to know about a movie is what it's about. Train to Busan, a 2016 Korean zombie movie, is admittedly a great movie for those who love horror as a genre. But the film, which is set to leave Amazon Prime Video at the end of March, is also much more than just the basics of the zombie genre.

Since its release nearly a decade ago, the film has become one of the most beloved foreign films ever to come to America, and it's easy to see why. Here are three reasons you should be sure to check it out on Prime Video before it leaves at the end of March:

Like Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill? Then watch these 3 great action movies right now
Uma Thurman with a sword in 'Kill Bill Vol. 1'

Over the course of his decades-long career, Quentin Tarantino has been open about the many genres he has riffed on. One of his most obvious riffs came with the Kill Bill movies, which were released in 2003 and 2004. The films follow Uma Thurman as a female assassin who is out for revenge against the team that betrayed her.

The movies were a riff on Hong Kong action films and featured some genuinely great action in and of themselves. If you were bewitched by those films upon their release, there are plenty of other movies like them that you should be sure to check out. Here are three of the very best.

When it comes to finding great movies to watch, from high-profile new titles to classics and even obscure films, Amazon Prime Video is a great resource. But the selection of titles is always changing. Some movies are only available for a limited time. They might be removed from the streaming service due to licensing expirations, or perhaps they are moving to another streaming service. Whatever the case, the list of titles you have bookmarked to watch when you get around to it might be thinner once you actually sit down to queue them up.

To help make sure you don’t miss out on some classic titles, perhaps movies you’d love, but haven’t heard of, we have put together this list of five movies leaving Prime Video in March you have to watch. Each of these brings something unique to the table, from thought-provoking commentary to knee-slapping comedy.
