Looking for something to watch on Netflix? Well, you’re in luck. These are my picks for the 101 best movies on Netflix right now. These movies range from blockbusters to indie gems, from action to drama to horror. I have also included some grouped movies, which are either franchises, a series of remakes, or a batch of movies from a specific director. I have also highlighted ten movies that I consider “priority watches”, which could be seasonally relevant movies, anniversary viewings, or great movies that deserved to be watched.
