The Best Movies on Netflix Instant

best of netflix instant movies

Below you can learn more about the very best out there on Netflix Instant.

It may seem strange, but it's actually harder than you think to find great movies on Netflix Instant Watch. There's a ton of great options, both well-known and hidden gems, but you may find you don't just stumble upon them. Well, that's where we've got you covered.

You can add the movie directly to your Instant Queue (a Netflix login may be required if you aren't logged in) by just clicking the "add to instant queue" link next to the movie.

The list is divided into must see movies, new movies on instant watch, hidden gems you may not have seen, and a collection of well-known or noteworthy titles (not all of these were fantastic, but you know them).

On this page you can find some new featured films as well as some of our staff picks!

Don't forget to check back if you can't find anything to watch, this page will be updated consistently.
