What is it
agoodmovietowatch suggests highly-rated yet little-known movies and shows.
Why highly-rated and little-known
Highly-rated: so that you know they’re good, and little-known: so there is little chance you’ve already seen them.
Our movies and shows all hold a viewer score higher than 70% (7/10 on IMDb for example) and at the same time a critic score higher than 70% (on Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, etc).
We also hunt down movies and shows that have low voting counts on those same platforms. That’s how we gauge the little-known criteria.
Why no algorithms
Netflix’s algorithm is a corporate algorithm. It’s often more interested in selling you what Netflix spent money on rather than recommending what’s actually good.
Not to mention, recommendation algorithms suggest content based on your past viewing. This means that you’ll rarely get exposed to new things outside of your pallet. We believe that being challenged by something new is always better than being told what to watch by a robot.
agoodmovietowatch is 100% human-curated. If you see it here, we’ve watched it and completely vouch for it.
