Even if you're planning on staying curled up on the couch, you'll want to buckle up for some action, since a handful of adventure and action movies are hitting streaming. The first four installments of the Mission: Impossible series are coming to Prime, as does Fight Club, The Grand Budapest Hotel, the cult favorite spy movie The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and Nightcrawler. As for new stuff to watch, the Ben Affleck-starring dramedy The Tender Bar arrives on streaming, and a new comedy from Parenthood-creator Jason Kitims called As We See It, about a group of roommates on the Autism spectrum, premieres.
