The quartet recoils in horror after having watched "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows."


When you think of "Cabin Fever 2," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" or "Bait Shop" (starring Bill Engvall and Billy Ray Cyrus), only one thought enters your brain. That thought is, "I'm glad I am under no requirement to ever watch any of those movies when Amazon adds them in May."

However, there are good titles to catch. Amazon bolstered its James Bond collection by bringing back a whole bunch of titles including "Thunderball," "Goldeneye" and "For Your Eyes Only." In the comedy classic section, you've got "A Christmas Story," "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" and the Naked Gun trilogy.

Then there are some all-time greats like "Gone with the Wind," "Wizard of Oz" and "A Fistful of Dollars." That's a whole lot of quality movies to watch. Check out the full list below:
