Amazon this month (January 2023) plans to add 190 new TV shows and movies to its Prime and Freevee lineups, including 165 movies today.

The new films added today include eight (a film series here is counted once) we really, really love:

* Four Indiana Jones movies, including the original, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, starring Harrison Ford as the swashbuckling archaeologist who uncovers ancient artifacts and Nazi plots. Thrill a minute moviemaking from director Steven Spielberg.

* In the Heat of the Night, the 1967 drama starring Sidney Poitier as an African-American detective from Philadelphia who’s ‘recruited’ to solve a murder in a small racist Southern town. Rod Steiger won the Academy Award for Best Actor, but it’s Poitier’s picture. Sensational performance. (Poitier’s other 1967 gem, To Sir With Love, was also added today to Amazon.)

* Election, the 1999 comedy starring Matthew Broderick as a high school teacher whose ethics are challenged when an all-too-perfect student (Reese Witherspoon) runs for class president. Broderick’s best since Ferris Bueller, but Witherspoon is pitch perfect in her role.

* Four Mission Impossible films, including the original from 1996, directed by Brian De Palma. Tom Cruise plays the double-crossed secret agent, Ethan Hunt, and, well, you know the rest. Hijinks. Death-defying stunts. Dangerous deceptions. Explosions. And that’s just the first five minutes.

* Serpico, the 1973 drama based on the real-life New York police officer Frank Serpico who exposed widespread corruption on the force. Al Pacino is at his messianic best as Serpico in this iconic film.

* Out of Sight, the 1998 comedy/drama from director Steven Soderbergh which stars George Clooney as a bank robber who’s tracked (and, uh, pursued) by a federal agent played wonderfully by Jennifer Lopez. The great cast also includes Michael Keaton, Albert Brooks, Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames, Nancy Allen, Samuel L. Jackson…and too many more wonderful folks to name here. Watch this movie. It’s classic Soderbergh.

* Rosemary’s Baby, the spooky 1968 drama from director Roman Polanski which stars Mia Farrow as a pregnant young woman who suspects a mysterious group wants to kidnap her baby. Farrow is brilliant and haunting as the paranoid (or is she?) mother and film auteur John Cassavetes plays her loving (but possibly suspicious) hubbie to perfection.

* Tombstone, the 1993 western starring Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer as Doc ‘I’m Your Huckleberry’ Holliday. Russell is good, but Kilmer is masterful in the role of the terminally ill gunslinger who seems to tempt (and cheat) death at every turn.
