This post, Good Movie to Watch on Netflix, is part of my participation with the Netflix #StreamTeam. Opinions are my own.
Have you ever opened up Netflix on your TV or device and been sort of overwhelmed? There is a lot of options, which is great, but when you aren’t sure what you want to watch, it can be a little like channel surfing. By the time you do find something to watch, you’ve wasted so much time searching. So I decided to put together a list of good movies to watch on Netflix to help save you some time.
Keep in mind that Netflix offerings change frequently, so a movie that is there now, might be gone tomorrow, so if you see a “must-watch” make sure to catch it sooner rather than later. I chose movies from a wide range of audience levels, family friendly through R rates films.
There are 30 good movies to watch on Netflix below. Make sure you scroll down to see all of them.
Good Movies to Watch on Netflix

How do you watch Netflix? Do you stream it on a mobile device? Smart TV? Roku player? We have a smart TV but it’s very slow and fussy. I just recently discovered the Roku Express HD Streaming Player that I’m considering trying out.
- Forrest Gump
- Full Metal Jacket
- The Shining
- Young Frankenstein
- Pulp Fiction
- Adventures in Babysitting
- Newsies: The Broadway Musical
- Dead Poets Society
With the holidays coming, a Netflix gift card makes a fantastic gift. You could even combine it with the Roku Express I mentioned above. You can get them delivered by email or get a physical gift card.
