The best movies to binge-watch on deployment on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2022
Fire up the external hard drive and make your deployment suck a little bit less.
Binge-watching movies and TV shows is a time-honored tradition among U.S. service members. At least an hour of every day during deployment used to be spent tracking down bootlegged entertainment, but you can do it legally with Prime Day deals that cut the price of some of the best movies in half. Check out some of our favorites, available as streaming or physical copies on DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K.
While you’re at it, grab a swanky new 48-inch LG smart TV for 47 percent off to take advantage of all that high-res goodness when you’re not jetting around the globe for Uncle Sam.
Calling “1917” a war movie is actually a disservice. It’s also a masterful exploration of how movies can be made. It’s a great story. It’ll put its hooks into you and make you want to watch it again and again –– which is good, because you’ll definitely have time. It’s also on sale for 67 percent off.
Watch World War II heroics to pass the time when you’re not you spending your deployment suffering through safety briefs about wearing your glow belt in the chow hall or something stupid like that. The 4K version is normally $41.99, but you can get it today for $10.99.
You might not be on an epic quest, but you can at least be entertained by someone who is. Watch your favorite little hobbit (and by that I obviously mean Sam) save the day in this trilogy. Grab it on Blu-Ray for $24.99 instead of the usual $45.09 on Prime Day.

This one ought to keep you occupied for a long, long time. Escape the monotony of your earthly life with nine Star Wars movies and all the bonus content you could ask for. This incredible collection retails for $244.99, but a Prime Day discount has it down to $186.41.
