The Golden Gem Movies Waiting for You On Netflix

Netflix is hard at work uploading new movies daily for your entertainment. We understand the hardship that it is having to stay in-tune to what the latest and greatest movies are available on Netflix. This is why we have listed, the 50 greatest.

Netflix has thousands of movies within their sub-categorised portfolio, and truly, we don't want you to miss a thing.

The list that you will find just below, has been updated, and will continue to be updated every month to renew the movies that are no longer streaming on Netflix, to the greatest and latest that are currently streaming on Netflix.

We made the long awaited decision back in 2010 to sign-up with Netflix, and we have been amazed by the transitions that the service has gone through to keep up to date with the latest movie and TV series trends.

Loving life, loving movies, loving TV shows, then you will be sure to love what Netflix has to offer. The red faced angel is back.

No.1 - Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

"Get ready for an improved super-villain who is hardwired to cause world destruction, and everyone agrees that Tom Hiddleston is a great villain, but just does not satisfy the darkness that is evil."

For the Netflix Buffs

Are you an official advocate for the Netflix movement, and if so, do you agree with our list. We would love to hear any additions that you feel would be monumental for a list as this one.

Plus, what is your favourite movie on Netflix that has brought you back countless times, just to watch that single movie?

Ours is Drive, released in 2011, starring Ryan Gosling as a full-time mechanic, part time stuntman in the movies, and his most skilled work as a part time getaway driver. What's best about Drive is that no one could have expected (spoiler-ahead!) Gosling's character would have his final skill, the ability to beat down pretty much anybody who gets in his way.

Thanks!

      Not a fan of Marvel but there are some decent movies on this list. I live in Tokyo so I'm not sure if Japanese Netflix is the same, but I've definitely seen a few on there such as World War Z and Fight Club. The Descent is a good one for sure; I didn't know it was on Netflix at the moment.

      I was always disappointed they don't have Disney movies on Netflix, but it's still an excellent time-waster!
