Amazon has got a nice assortment of gifts coming your way next month, in the form of new movies and TV shows on the company's Amazon Prime streaming service. You can look at this as fresh material for those warm, snuggly, family binge-watching evenings. Or consider it a much-needed respite from the hubbub of the holidays — just you and your laptop.

What we're looking forward to watching the most (with or without our families) is the second season of Transparent. The groundbreaking series took home the Golden Globe for Best Comedy last year. And of course, star Jeffrey Tambor snagged a statue for his fantastic portrayal of family matriarch Maura Pfefferman. From what we've seen so far, season 2 looks just as hilarious, heartbreaking, and authentic as the first.

Another Amazon original, Mozart in the Jungle, is also returning. The show is billed as a comedy about sex, drugs, and classical music — and it's definitely worth catching up on before December 30.

Bedazzled (2000)
If there are two actors we haven’t seen enough of lately, they are definitely Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley. Here, Fraser plays a not-so-smooth guy who makes a deal with a devil to get his dream girl.

The Details (2011)
This is one of those movies that we just can't figure out how it nabbed the star power it did. In this case, Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks, and Laura Linney debase themselves in this dark "rom-com" about a family that discovers a family of raccoons living on their lot. Cheating and murder follow, obviously.

Meet Me in Montenegro (2015)
There's a reason you didn't hear about this movie this year: the whirlwind international love story made a grand total of $8,612 in the U.S. The only thing going for it? Rupert Friend. He counts for a lot.

Transparent Season 2 (2015)
We’ve been waiting a year for the return of the Pfeffermans, and it’s finally here. If you didn’t catch the award-winning first season, where we first meet recently transitioned Maura and her lovably dysfunctional family, it’s a quick and worthy binge!

Interstellar (2014)
This star-studded Christopher Nolan flick — with Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine — drew worship and ire alike from moviegoers with its wonky, wormhole plot and heartbreaking (if confounding) ending.

Cutie and the Boxer (2013)
This offbeat, Oscar-nominated documentary tells the story of Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, a pair of Japanese immigrants who've been married for four decades. The doc provides a fascinating look at their creative ambitions and unconventional relationship.

Selma (2014)
A year after the release of Ava DuVernay’s stunning Martin Luther King biopic, the civil rights masterpiece is still painfully relevant and already a modern classic — no matter how little love it got from the Academy. The film is quiet and sparse, yet powerful and stirring. And David Oyelowo's performance is riveting.

The Gambler (2014)
Mark Wahlberg stars as an English professor with a crippling gambling addiction. The film is subpar, even for Mark Wahlberg action-thriller fare. But the supporting cast, including Jessica Lange and John Goodman, rocks.

Pusher (2012)
This British remake of the 1996 Danish crime drama is very, very bad. It stars Richard Coyle as an English street dealer who gets himself into a dangerous situation. Who saw that coming?

Free Willy (1993)
This heartwarming ‘90s classic finds a young troublemaker befriending an orphaned orca whale named Willy. Just as likely as Blackfish to make you feel for the gentle giant — and boycott SeaWorld.
