About agoodmovietowatch

What is it

agoodmovietowatch suggests “highly-rated, but little-known” movies.

This website is your gateway to great titles on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.

Why highly-rated and little-known

We believe that looking for something to watch almost always translates to looking for something you haven’t yet seen, which you will love. To us, that is equivalent to highly-rated but little-known.

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 that didn’t make a huge splash at the box office, or little-watched shows. That’s how we calculate our little-known criteria.

Why no algorithms

Netflix’s algorithm is a corporate algorithm. This means that it’s more interested in selling you new titles that 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 biased corporate robot.

We don’t use an algorithm and never will. agoodmovietowatch is 100% human-curated. If you see it here, we’ve watched it and completely vouch for it.

 Who we are

My name is Bilal, I learned English through movies growing up in Morocco.

I founded agoodmovietowatch a few years ago, and I also write the premium newsletter every week.

I put in it the best things I’ve watched every week, together with an overview of what’s expiring and new but worth your time.

You can subscribe to get my picks every week here.

I am helped by a few other writers and a lovely editor. The design concept for the website was done by Sheena Antonios.
