Amazon Prime may still be the lesser-known Robin to Netflix’ Batman in the streaming service world, but it might be worth picking up a subscription if any of these new March titles are among your favorites. Check out the 18 new titles below, plus Indiewire’s picks on what to watch:

Available 3/1
“The Alamo” (1960)
“Blue Lagoon: The Awakening” (2012)
“Comet Encounter Season 1” (2013)
“NOVA Season 12: Volumes 11 and 12” (2014)

Indiewire Pick: “Drunk History Season 2” (2014)

If you haven’t been watching this web-show-turned-Comedy-Central-hit, the premise is incredibly simple and hilariously effective: get someone drunk and ask them to recount a well-known event from history. Then have well-known actors in quality period costumes re-enact the drunken ramblings. The cast is a little different every episode and you don’t need to know anything about history to enjoy the show, though it does sometimes hit that AP-USH nerd funny bone.

Available 3/4
“The Nanny Diaries” (2007)

Available 3/5
“Center Stage: Turn It Up” (2008)
“Donnie Brasco” (1997)
Taxi Driver” (1976)

Available 3/6
The Kill Team” (2014)

Indiewire Pick “Listen Up Philip” (2014)

As we wrote from Sundance 2014, “Alex Ross Perry’s third directorial effort marries the best of showing and telling. Its titular character is a cantankerous novelist played by a hirsute and well-styled Jason Schwartzman. Petty, self-obsessed, and fixated on a very recognizable form of success, Philip’s increasing solipsism is defined by his relationships with those around him. Importantly, the protagonist disappears for a sizeable chunk of the film’s mid section (a device Perry borrowed from William Gaddis’ novel, “Recognitions”) and we learn as much about him in absentia as we do from being in his overwhelming presence. A languorous yet methodical comedy, ‘Listen Up Phillip’ unfolds like a sociological proof of Einstein’s theory of relativity.”

Available 3/8
“Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story” (2014)

Available 3/9
The Angriest Man In Brooklyn” (2014)
“Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club” (2014)

Available 3/19
“Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets” (2014)

Available 3/20
God’s Not Dead” (2014)
The Zero Theorem” (2014)

Available 3/27
“Frankie & Alice” (2014)
