A lot of things come in threes, like movies. The 1990 version of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and its sequels hit Amazon at the same time. Back then, there were no computer-generated turtles like the new films. The characters come to life thanks to practical costumes and puppetry. The first film is probably the best one, but who can hate "The Secret of the Ooze" with its introduction of "Ninja Rap?"

Three "Matrix" films will stream on Amazon in August as well. If you've never seen the sequels, why start now? They were terrible.

Also coming to Amazon is the best US-based "Godzilla" movie not starring Godzilla, "Cloverfield." Maybe J.J. Abrams can helm an actual Godzilla movie one day. Fix all the things, J.J.! Check out the full list below:
