Based on a short story written by Robert A. Heinlein, Predestination is a film that shows the story of an agent whose last mission involves preventing a bombing.
Sounds easy, right? However, the agent has to travel back in time to prevent the incident and thus falls several challenges in his path making it seem impossible. Ethan Hawke also catches the attention of the audience with his thrilling performance.
Another series revolving around time travel, Undone is the first-ever adult animated series on Prime Video.

Discovering the mysteries of this world, this short series is for people who do not allow realistic aspects to hinder their dreams.
When you see the show, you will wonder if all of us are just a part of a social experience. Although it is a fascinating watch for adults, some children may find the content to be disturbing.
5. The Expanse
Spreading across six enormous seasons, The Expanse is not similar to anything you’ve watched before.
It is set in a world where the people of planet Earth have colonized the entire universe bringing everything under their control with the UN Security Council at its head.

6. Source Code
Not a good watch if you have only 2 brain cells left late at night, Source Code is a sci-fi movie featuring Jake Gyllenhaal who takes the role of a pilot in the U.S army with a mysterious mission involving the discovery behind the bombing of a train under eight minutes.
Now the crazy part is, that Gyllenhaal has been transported in another person’s body who died in that incident. Not a movie you see every day, Source Code is an interesting watch with a complex plot.
7. 10 Cloverfield Lane
If you are someone who likes movies with small spaces set in rooms or similar areas, 10 Cloverfield Lane doesn’t have big themes- it shows the story of Michelle who is stuck in a bunker with a stranger who is trying to convince her that the world outside has become catastrophic and that she is safe inside the space.
Confused about the reality, Michelle plans to escape. This movie has the power to keep you hooked to the screen and if you are a thriller fan, do check it out.
8. Ex Machina
Starring talented actors like Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, Ex Machina shows the life of a young programmer who is funded by a billionaire to be a part of a strange experiment where he is supposed to interact with a female robot.
