Best Movies on Netflix: Movies Worth Rewatching


Just three days ago, Netflix made The Interview available for its subscribers. But you, and anyone with a social media account or chatty co-worker, already knew that. So what about the other movies Netflix has to offer? Netflix is the world’s leading Internet television network with more than two billion hours of TV shows and movies available per month. To help you dig through your options, we’ve created the following list of the Best Movies on Netflix that we think are worth rewatching:


rainmanRain Man (R, 1988)

Melt faster than the winter snow with this story of brotherhood and autism. Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise’s performances will make you laugh and cry as hard as you did the first time watching this heartwarming film. After all, the movie didn’t earn Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen to be watched just once!






notting hillNotting Hill
 (PG-13, 1999)

A common man (Hugh Grant) charms a Hollywood star (Julia Roberts) — it’s a timeless dream, set in the 90’s. Even the most resistant to romantic comedies will laugh at the absurdity of fame and family in this film.








cast awayCast Away (PG-13, 2000)

Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks) captured you heart when he fights to survive on a desert island. If the last time you’ve thought of this movie was initiated from a reference made in Bridesmaids, then it’s time to cry “Wilson” again soon.








silverSilver Linings Playbook (R, 2012)

When Pat (Bradley Cooper) loses his job, house and wife he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) who promises to reconnect him with his wife under one condition, which challenges and surprises them both. Lawrence brought mental health issues into the foreground with her convincing, moving performance. By winning the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, Lawrence proves she’s not limited to YA books adaptations (although Hunger Games 2 is available to stream on Netflix, too). Despite how memorable the performance is, you’ll want to get absorbed by the plot once again.





You loved them once, you’ll love them again. Which movie are you most excited to revisit on Netflix? How has your perception of these movies changed since the last time you saw them?
