There was quite a bit of shuffling around on the Amazon Prime Video Top 10 Movies and Shows list over the weekend, however, the new horror film Nanny was the only new entry on the chart, landing on the list at No. 6 on Monday. Dr. Seuss Baking Challenge, which rocketed up the charts in its first week with a peak position at No. 2 on Friday, fell completely off the charts. Jack Ryan moves all the way to the second spot as subscribers finish their rewatches in anticipation of Wednesday’s drop of Season 3, and Something From Tiffany’s gets the weekend Christmas movie bump all the way up to No. 4.

The most popular movies and shows on Amazon Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching.
