6. Midnight in Paris (2011)
Woody Allen won his fourth Oscar for the Midnight in Paris screenplay. Often hailed as one of the prolific director’s best, Midnight in Paris is a rom-com with a touch of magical realism where Owen Wilson’s Gil is inexplicably transported to the 1920s every time midnight rolls around while visiting Paris.

5. The Devil’s Rejects (2005)
Musician turned director Rob Zombie’s best film is easily his sophomore effort The Devil’s Rejects. This is a strong horror film with well-drawn characters, interesting themes, and original concepts. Seems to pull a fair bit of inspiration from Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Plenty of filmmakers pull inspiration from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre but it’s a special kind of horror fan that draws from the sequel.

1. Cold War (2013)
Not the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film nominee (though that Cold War is also on Prime) but rather the 2013 Hong Kong actioner starring Andy Lau, Tony Leung, and Aaron Kwok. This is a solid action film that, chances are, might not have been on your radar. Give it a watch if you’re in the mood for some well-choreographed action scenes.
