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.

People always say the books are better, but they also weigh about a trillion pounds in this case. Get the entire eight-film “Harry Potter” collection on Blu-Ray for 72 percent off on Prime Day.

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.

I honestly didn’t know there were this many movies in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise. That just means there’s more to enjoy while you’re in your rack with nothing else to do. It’s half-price for Prime Day, so now is the time to buy.

“Jesus Christ, that’s Jason Bourne.” And right now, all his movies are 57 percent off thanks to a Prime Day discount.

Relive the movies that propelled Keanu Reeves from time-traveling goofball to lead-slinging action hero. All three movies can be yours in 4K for a discount of – wait for it – 69 percent. Nice.

Having this entire five-movie collection can really transform your deployment or a lonely weekend in the barracks, am I right? Having the price cut in half for Prime Day makes it that much better.

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.

In hindsight, the whole situation with Marty and his mom was very weird. The kid definitely has some therapy in his future. See what I mean in vivid 4K with this three-movie set, available for less than half price today.

No, you are not obligated to watch the fourth one. You kind of don’t even have to pay for it, because the Prime Day discount has this four-movie collection marked down from $90.99 to $39.99 in 4K.
