Gone are the days when everyone had to set alarms to make sure they don’t miss their favorite movies that are scheduled to play on cable TV. So is the endless waiting for movie downloads to complete, as well as the perpetual freeing up of space on computers for users to make way for their favorite flicks.

But with great freedom comes great problems.

Now that everyone has the capability to watch practically anything they want to watch on Netflix, the biggest dilemma will always be deciding on which movie to watch.

But fret not — we’ve come up with a list of the best Netflix movies that no one should ever miss.

Best Netflix Movies

In Bruges

This rather unpopular movie was gravely overlooked by many moviegoers when it was first shown back in 2008. Starring Colin Farrell, the movie focuses on a hired gun impatiently waiting for his next assignment. In Bruges features a lot of plot twists and turns that will leave you laughing — and crying — so hard.

It’s definitely a movie not to miss.

Good Will Hunting

Definitely, a classic, 1997’s Good Will Hunting is without a doubt one of those movies worth watching time and again. This timeless piece was created during the earlier days in the careers of many big shot movie stars including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

Django Unchained

A rather unpopular movie that’s definitely worth watching, Django Unchained features one of the best performances of Leonardo DiCaprio during his younger years.

American Beauty

American Beauty is a drama film that many people have watched at least once in their lives. If this is a movie you haven’t watched yet, it may be something you may want to view on Netflix.

Inglourious Basterds

If there is a Brad Pitt movie that one must never miss, it has to be this one. Inglourious Basterds is an extremely entertaining movie set in the World War II era that mixes both gore and fun — something that definitely says the movie was directed by no less than Quentin Tarantino himself.

Kill Bill Volume 1 & 2

Now that we’ve mentioned legendary director Quentin Tarantino, it is definitely impossible not to bring up the glorious days of Kill Bill — a movie starring Uma Thurman that certainly redefined “girl power” in Hollywood history.

Pulp Fiction

And while we’re at it, let’s not forget Mr. Tarantino’s 1994 classic, ‘Pulp Fiction.’ This movie can be considered one of those that redefined Hollywood movie history. Starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, and Bruce Willis, ‘Pulp Fiction’ is definitely one of the movies not to miss on Netflix.

The Sixth Sense

“I see dead people.”

Who can ever forget about that famous goosebumps-inducing line from the 1999 blockbuster, ‘The Sixth Sense’?

Written and directed by the famed M. Night Shyamalan, this scary movie is definitely a classic worth watching time and time again.

The Terminator

Who doesn’t want to watch the movie that mostly made both the movie and political careers of former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger? This 1984 classic is definitely something worth watching, despite the fact that it was a futuristic movie created over three decades ago.

Cruel Intentions

Before ‘Gossip Girl’ and other wannabe mean-rich-children-movies were even conceived — there was Cruel Intentions. Launched in 1999, the movie features Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Philippe, together with ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ star Sarah Michelle Gellar. The film tells the twisted story of affluent teens of the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the very same location where ‘Gossip Girl’ characters lived. Fans who were able to watch this fascinating film before ‘Gossip Girl’ was even launched could very easily point out the uncanny similarities between the two. The film is definitely a must-watch.

Mean Girls

More than a decade after Regina George has taken the world by storm, the queen bee of all teen flicks remains ultra-popular and undoubtedly unforgettable. ‘Mean Girls’ is definitely one of those films that you just can’t help watching over and over again — and you can find it on Netflix.

For those with way too much time on their hands and the classics in this best Netflix movies list just won’t do, we’ve also come up with a list of movies to watch out for on Netflix this year.

Ellis (2015)

The discovery unexpectedly unravels the haunting history of generations upon generations of migrants in the island.

The film features a 900-pound domesticated grizzly bear named Boog, who, due to unfortunate circumstances, found himself trapped in the woods just three days before the open season.

This film features the voices of Martin Lawrence (who plays Boog), Ashton Kutcher (who plays Elliot), and Gary Sinise (who plays the voice of Shaw).

Kitten Party (2010)

How interesting can a movie about a kitten party, entitled ‘Kitten Party’, get exactly? Very, apparently. According to (extremely) surprising rave reviews by Netflix users, this severely overlooked film might just be what we all need to live a better life. The movie follows the life of Whiskers, a kitten who decided to invite 50 of his best friends to an epic party that neither they nor we can forget for the rest of our lives.

Violet & Daisy (2010)

Starring Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel, Violet & Daisy is a 2010 film about two teenage hired guns who took a mission they both thought was going to be easy in hopes of getting quick cash that they were planning to use on buying dresses that they’ve been eyeing. Problems arose, however, once the two saw an unexpected target show up in the scene.

This movie is definitely one to watch from this best Netflix movies list.

Cartel Land

Cartel Land is a documentary film from last year that has been nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars. The movie chronicles the battle of two groups of vigilantes against the notorious Mexican drug cartels.

The two group of vigilantes fighting for a common cause hail from the opposite sides of the Mexican border. One group hails from the Arizona Recon Border in America, and the other one, a rebel uprising — from Michoacán, Mexico. This film opens viewers’ eyes to the harsh reality that showcases the power of drug syndicates over corrupt officials, and how the process of uprising also breeds corruption among those who choose to rebel against the Mexican government.

One of the best movies ever made, Cartel Land is definitely a must-watch on Netflix.
