Liam Neeson has a new movie on Prime Video in which he shoots bad guys, so naturally it’s climbing the charts despite it being awful. Blacklight debuts at No. 4 on Amazon Prime Video’s Top 10 Shows and Movies list, knocking off another Liam Neeson action film, Memory, from the leaderboard. India’s attempt at a Sex and the Citythe boozily named Four More Shots Please!, also cracks the top 10 after its third season premiered on Prime Video earlier this week. And after just two days in the No. 1 spot, the new sci-fi series The Peripheral relinquishes the top spot to The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching.
