Ahh, Netflix. If there’s a better way to spend $8 a month on entertainment, we haven’t found it. But what good is that gloriously massive streaming content library if you can’t find anything to watch? We regularly try to point you toward new Netflix content as it arrives on Netflix as well as tools that will help you find good movies and shows to stream, and now we’re taking things one step further with a list of the 10 best movies you can stream on Netflix right now.
“Right now” is an important note, since these titles will change constantly. Why? Because this list is not some arbitrary pile of movies someone picked out of a hat and threw together. Truth be told, that’s about as scientific as most of the “best” lists out there are when it comes to Netflix content.
In this list, however, you’ll find the actual best movies, as rated by… you. And you. And also you.
This list of movies on Netflix is based on average ratings across three different massive sources including IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes and Netflix user ratings. As a result, it’s pretty safe to say that this is as good as it gets.
Here we go. You’ll find the average rating across all three sites next to each movie, and you can click each title to visit its Netflix page.
