Netflix is one of the biggest premium streaming video services worldwide, with over 150 million subscribers. It has a massive content library that attracts everyone. Often this makes it a task to find what to watch on Netflix. To help you out, I’ve rounded up the best 8 all-time-hit movies on Netflix you should consider checking out.
1. Avengers: Infinity War (action)
Released in 2018, The Marvel Cinematic Universe took 10 years and 19 movies to reach the first part of its concluding story. It features all the superheroes of the MCU, including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and more against the Mad Titan, Thanos.
This guy is gathering the six Infinity Stones so that he can kill off half the universe’s population on having them all as it’s all in a good cause, at least according to Thanos. The Avengers want to stop him from making the big snap, this makes us watch some of the biggest superhero action sequences of all time. This is the story of this super hit movie that is one of the most popular and best of all time.
2. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (comedy)
The group of comedians in this movie blew audiences away with their first original film. This movie is one of the funniest movies ever made. This may be the best movie ever made about the myth of King Arthur as well.
You can also watch the group’s earlier work on Netflix, which is streaming the entire run of the Monty Python’s Flying Circus TV series.
3. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (comedy)
Netflix has hit it big with original young adult romantic comedy movies, and this has made its actors into major social media hits. Perhaps the best movie in this category is To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Inspired by the best selling book of the same name, it was released on Netflix in 2018. This is the story of a teenage girl and her letters to all of her past secret crushes, but she’s written these notes for herself. However, these letters get leaked and have to deal with the fallout.
The movie has a decent premise, but it’s made more relatable because of the performances of Lana Condor, who played the role of letter-writing girl Lara Jean, along with breakout teenage male heartthrob star Noah Centineo, who plays one of her crushes.
4. The Matrix (action)
Released in 1999, this movie changed movies forever. Wachowskis is the writer and director of this movie who presented a world that at first appeared to be our own. However, as Keanu Reeves (the lead actor) learns, the world he has been living in is false.
It’s been created by a ruthless AI that uses humans for energy in the far future and makes its subject believe they are living in the late 20th century. With the progress of the movie, Reeves and his band of rebels want to free the human race of this virtual prison. This leads to an action movie that combined Japanese kung-fu flicks, Hong Kong movie gunplay, and revolutionary special effects.
5. Freaks (drama)
Released in 2019, this movie is getting more and more popular on Netflix, and it’s easy to see why. It revolves around a seven-year-old girl who has been kept inside an abandoned house all of her life by her father. You might think the father to be crazy or abusive. But, as the movie progresses, you see that there might be a big reason why he wants to keep her daughter away from the outside world.
6. Her (sci-fi)
It is a romantic drama, part hipster-fest, with just sufficient sci-fi that makes it even better. This is the story about a timid man (Joaquin Phoenix) who makes his virtual assistant artificially intelligent. Over time he develops a romantic relationship with the AI’s disembodied voice, which names herself Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). Despite the lack of any physical contact, the film gives you a feeling of love and affection with an interesting commentary on modern human relationships.
This film made by Jonze earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, plus a nomination for Best Picture.
7. Minority Report (sci-fi)
Tom Cruise is the lead character in this amazing sci-fi movie from 2002. It still holds the same craze, as we see a near-future world where murder has been eradicated in Washington DC. That’s due to the three psychics who can foresee and predict if murder is going to take place. Cruise plays the head of the “PreCrime Division,” and is a firm believer in it. The psychics predict he will soon murder someone in the city. Directed by Steven Spielberg, this movie runs fast pace as Cruise goes on the run, and even kidnaps one of the PreCrime psychics to prove his pre-innocence.
8. Incredibles 2 (kids and family)
This is the sequel to The Incredibles which is as good as the original and is a joy to watch. A rich brother and sister team want to help improve the image of superheroes, with the assistance of Elastigirl.
Whereas, a new villain wants to spoil those plans. Writer-director Brad Bird keeps the action going as you see a new batch of heroes. In this movie, you get some really funny scenes with baby Jack Jack. This is one of the best kids movies on Netflix you can watch.
These are some of the most popular and 8 all-time hit movies on Netflix that you cannot miss out watching whenever you get time or anytime.
