It's easy to forget that Amazon Prime is good for more than just super fast shipping. With a huge library of movies and TV streaming on demand, including some original titles, it's an added benefit for when you've exhausted your Netflix queue.

Here are ten titles streaming on Amazon Prime for free that you don't want to miss:

1. Thelma and Louise

Revenge stories aren't just fun — they feel good in your gut. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are at their very best in this 1991 classic about getting even.

2. Raging Bull

This film earned Robert De Niro a Best Actor Oscar, and it's ridiculously easy to see why. He's never been more intense or more fun to watch.

3. The Usual Suspects

This ensemble cast really shines. They're so much better together than any individual actor would be apart. Together, they deliver more heart than your average crime flick.

4. West Side Story

If you've never seen the original West Side Story, you're really missing out. While the iterations over the last 50 years have been fun, nothing quite compares to the near-perfect version that started it all.

5. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

There are plenty of great performances on this list, but Jack Nicholson's is easily one of the best. He's impossibly good in this 1975 classic.

6. Vicky Cristina Barcelona

This cast is hard to dislike, and their chemistry is unparalleled. It's easy to see why the Academy and audiences responded so positively to this twisted love story.

7. Caddyshack

If you've been avoiding Caddyshack because your dad loved it when you were a kid, then get over it and get on board. This movie is just plain funny, and darn quotable too.

8. Mystic Pizza

Julia Roberts seems ageless to me, so it's always interesting when I get to see her as a young woman. In Mystic Pizza, it's easy to see why Roberts became one of the most famous actors of her generation.

9. The Secret of Nimh

Children of the 80s will love re-watching this beautiful story. It's not just sweet, it's downright emotional.

10. Funny Girl

There's no one quite like Barbra Streisand. And many would say it was this 60s classic that put her on the map and made her unforgettable.
