The best 50 movies on Netflix?

Scribol.com, the website claiming to offer “snackable content that delights, informs and entertains” has compiled its 50 best movies currently available on Netflix. Since 2015, Scribol says it has built an audience that now numbers 20 million visitors per month, making it a top-200 site as rated by Alexa.

Netflix currently has more than 4,000 movies on its platform, but Scribol says it will save members time with this “definitive” list of top-rated cinema release fare. If you also find it frustrating attempting to seek out movie content that will appeal on Netflix – and in addition to this list published on March 28th – the Scribol website includes other lists such as “The 25 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now” and “The 25 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix Right Now”.

Within the article, Luke Paton describes the methodology for selecting Scribol’s top 50. Not surprisingly, titles like Pulp Fiction, Jaws and Apocalypse Now easily make the grade, but discerning HTF members wishing to dig a little deeper might want to consider titles like Cuarón’s extraordinary Y Tu Mamá Tambien (2001), the 2006 Bollywood spectacular Lagaan (it’s not what you think), Polanski’s Holocaust masterpiece The Pianist (2002), or Carol Reed’s brilliant The Third Man (1949).

With Netflix having once boasted that it could provide every DVD ever produced for delivery straight to your door during its formative years, the ongoing decline of its movie library has been sad to witness while it has continued to channel ever more resources into its own TV and film production, and acquisition of third-party episodics.
