In this week's selection of films and shows on Amazon Prime, we start with an old cowboy who nobody believed in must deliver justice for his murdered partner by putting together a posse to hunt down and capture an outlaw. A young James T. Kirk embarks on his first mission aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise when a Romulan from the future heads back in time to destroy the United Federation of Planets in its younger days. Finally, a pair of brothers scheme to turn their fortunes around by robbing the Charlotte Motor Speedway with the help of their sister and a safecracker that they bust out of prison in time for the Memorial Day Coca-Cola 600 race.

  • The Ballad of Lefty Brown - An old cowboy that nobody believes in sets out on a mission of justice after his friend, a U.S. Marshal, is murdered right in front of him. Along the way, he gathers a posse that must work together in order to bring the outlaw in from the brutal western wilderness in order to face his punishment.
  • Star Trek - This 2009 film follows an alternate version of the Star Trek universe from the one most of us know, and follows the early adventures of James T. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, and the other members of the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise and their efforts to stop a renegade Romulan who has traveled back in time in order to destroy the Federation.
  • Logan Lucky - Jimmy and Clyde Logan plan an elaborate robbery of the Charlotte Motor Speedway in an effort to reverse a curse that they believe is on their family. To pull the robbery off, they recruit a team that includes their sister Mellie and convicted safecracker Joe Bang. Things get complicated when construction plans at the speedway force the brothers to move up their timetable to the much busier Coca-Cola 600 race that takes place on Memorial Day.
