Drive FilmDistrict

On Thursday, Amazon’s movie and TV database, IMDb, unveiled its free streaming video channel, IMDb Freedive.

The ad-supported channel is available on the IMDb site or through Amazon Fire TV devices, and is the latest destination where you can watch a collection of movies and TV shows for free, like Crackle or the Roku Channel.

We looked through its current library of movies and it’s not too shabby.

Along with TV shows like “Fringe” and “Heroes,” there are a bunch of movies ranging from the 1980s (“Body Double,” “Short Circuit”) to the mid 2010s (“Blue Jasmine,” “Drive”).

Here are 31 movies on Freedive we think are worth your time:

“1941” (1979)

It’s the movie that showed Steven Spielberg he wasn’t bulletproof. After making “Jaws” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” he made this comedy (penned by Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis) set in California days after the invasion of Peal Harbor, as hysteria is high that a similar attack could happen on American soil (sound hilarious, right?). With a huge cast of known stars at the time (Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi, Nancy Allen, John Candy), the movie is an interesting watch at something going off the rails before your eyes.

“2 Days in Paris” (2007)

An underappreciated gem of the early 2000s, Julie Delpy directs, writes, and stars in this dramedy starring opposite Adam Goldberg as a couple trying to rekindle their relationship in Paris. The problem is, because it’s the hometown of Delpy’s character, everywhere they go she runs into old boyfriends. Then there’s Delpy’s real-life father playing her dad in the movie, who steals every scene.

“Awakenings” (1990)

One of the best in the filmography of the late Penny Marshall, Robin Williams plays a doctor who discovers that a new drug awakens patients of his who were catatonic. Robert De Niro plays one of those patients, and the two give incredible performances as a friendship builds while De Niro’s character tries to get a handle on the world after decades of being in a hospital bed.
