The 90 Best Movies On Netflix (September 2023)


Netflix offers thousands of movies to stream, but it can be hard to figure out what’s worth the time. Here are the 90 best movies to watch right now.

In a competitive market, Netflix remains the streaming subscription service with the most subscribers, making the best movies on Netflix some of the best available anywhere. While Netflix’s selection of movies has waned somewhat, with the streamer increasingly opting to focus on its own original content, it still has a number of cinematic classics to complement its high-quality originals. Some Netflix original movies have been highlights of the last decade of cinema, making these exclusives almost enough of a reason to subscribe by themselves.



Despite a reduction in available third-party movies, Netflix still plays host to some truly great films, ranging all the way from relatively recent action thrillers like Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, to major award winners and undisputed classics, such as Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky. Such diversity, spanning every popular genre, ensures that Netflix always has a varied and impressive library. Here are the 90 best movies currently available on Netflix.
