Plan your movie nights wisely.

No matter how cool modern movies look thanks to all the wonders of technology available to the industry, sometimes we still look back with a sense of nostalgia. There is something about the movies of the 2000s that will always captivate audiences, and luckily, they are now just as easy to revisit as any new release.

In April 2024, Amazon Prime Video will be adding a whole bunch of great nostalgic movies from two decades ago. So get your subscription ready and pick the ones you want to revisit first from the list below.

The Notebook ( 2004)

Even though it's been 20 years since the release of The Notebook, it remains one of the greatest romantic films of all time. The story of a young couple falling in love in the 1940s, retold from the Notebook and elevated by the performances of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, will forever remain a must-see classic.

We Were Soldiers (2002)

Based on the book We Were Soldiers Once... and Young, the movie stars Mel Gibson and tells a dramatized story of the Battle of Ia Drang, which took place on November 14, 1965 during the Vietnam War. This is a perfect choice for those who love war movies and want to see a human face of soldiers on both sides.

The Ring Two (2005)

If you love the American remake of the original Japanese horror story Ring, you'll be happy to know that the sequel is now available to watch on Prime Video. While it may not be for everyone, The Ring Two is a solid second installment for a franchise, and it's every bit as scary as you'd expect. So turn off the lights and enjoy the ride.

It's Complicated (2009)

Starring Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski, this romantic comedy is full of surprises. It follows the complicated love life of Jane Adler, a successful bakery owner and single mother of three, who is caught in a love triangle between herself, her ex-husband Jacob, and architect Adam.

Constantine ( 2005)

Directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Keanu Reeves as the cynical exorcist John Constantine, this epic superhero movie is based on the DC Comics Hellblazer graphic novels. Even though Constantine couldn't escape constant comparisons to the wildly popular Matrix in its day, it still makes for a very entertaining movie night these days.

Memoirs of a Geisha (2005)

Taking viewers back to 1929, Memoirs of a Geisha is an adaptation of Arthur Golden's famous novel of the same name. Although the film has received mixed reviews from both critics and audiences, it tackles a number of important moments in history through the prism of geisha society, which still is rarely seen on screen.

Disturbia (2007)

For those who enjoy the thrilling movies with no deeper meaning hidden behind numerous metaphors, Disturbia is a perfect choice. Beware, this neo-noir psychological thriller about a teenage boy under house arrest who spies on his neighbors may make you a little paranoid about the people around you.

The Aviator (2004)

If you wanted to expand your knowledge of Martin Scorsese 's filmography after the success of Killers of the Flower Moon, The Aviator might be an interesting movie to spend an evening with. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Scorsese retells the life story of Howard Hughes, an aviation pioneer and director of the film Hell's Angels.

The Truth About Charlie (2002)

While many prefer the original 1960s Charade to its 2000s remake, it still deserves a chance. While the story remains true to its source, the more modern version allows for some technical improvements. Also, The Truth About Charlie stars Mark Wahlberg as Lewis Bartholomew, and his performance elevates the movie.

White Noise (2005)

If anything, White Noise is more interesting for the history of its release and its legacy than for its content. As the first movie to make the studios realize how much money January releases could make, regardless of quality, it pushed many other mid-range horrors forward by the same token. However, it can also be enjoyed as a cringy ghost story.

Snatch (2001)

This would be a perfect choice for anyone still riding the hype of The Gentlemen. Another fun and dynamic Guy Ritchie crime comedy with a whole bunch of great action actors as a bonus. So if you want to see Brad Pitt, Jason Statham and Alan Ford all looking for a stolen diamond, Snatch is a great movie.

Cloverfield (2008)

Cloverfield is one of the movies that followed in the footsteps of White Noise, choosing January to ensure its box office success. However, this movie, produced by J.J. Abrams, has more to offer, especially for those who love the found footage genre. The movie has an approval rating of 78%, so there is a good chance that you will enjoy it as well.
