What we’re learning from these Amazon Prime Video Top 10 Movies and Shows lists is that you all love movies, but aren’t really into Prime Video original movies. Following the no-show on the list by Naomi Watts’ Goodnight Mommythe new Prime Video original film My Best Friend’s Exorcism, which was just released on Friday, also failed to make the list. Meanwhile, Ambulance and Firestarterwhich were both released in theaters (Firestarter was also released on Peacock), made the list after debuting on Prime Video on Friday. Of the five films on today’s list, only one — Samaritan — is a Prime Video original. You guys ever hear of movie theaters?
