Amazon’s Prime Video this week (June 16-22, 2024) plans to add six new TV shows and movies to its Prime membership lineup. Here’s the two you should watch, in my humble opinion:

Federer: Twelve Final Days (Amazon Original)
Filmmakers Asif Kapadia and Joe Sabia were given exclusive access to tennis legend Roger Federer during his last 12 days of play in 2022 and the result is this Amazon original documentary which features private home videos and interviews with rivals and friends including Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokivic and Andy Murray. Debuts Thursday, June 20.

Oppenheimer (2023)
Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer opened in theaters last summer and it certainly wasn’t a bomb. The film, which generated rave reviews from critics and theatergoers, made roughly $1 billion worldwide. Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy as the brilliant but troubled scientist, J. Robert Oppenheimer, who led the U.S. mission to build the first atomic bomb. But the film is overflowing with great supporting performances from such top talents as Robert Downey, Jr., Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Casey Affleck, Florence Pugh, Josh Harnett and Gary Oldman. When critics begin assembling new lists of the best films of all time, Oppenheimer is sure to be included in the top 10 of many. It’s a master work from Chris Nolan who previously produced such classics as The Dark Knight, Inception and Memento.
