agoodmovietowatch is a database of highly-rated movies. Because of this, we know that while Netflix US may have a larger catalog of titles, Netflix Canada actually has a larger catalog of good titles. Our latest count shows that we have 134 good movies for Netflix Canada, and only 98 for Netflix US (to find all the movies we suggest for Canada use the region selector in the top bar to choose your country).
When you end up on a list like this, you must be accustomed with the confusion and frustration that come with browsing Netflix aimlessly. From our research, this is caused by two things. First, something called the paradox of choice, where the larger the options you have to choose from the harder it is to choose. Second, recommendation algorithms. A few months ago Netflix removed their ratings and replaced them with match percentages. What this means is that if you watched a cop movie, you will have a 100% match record with other cop movies, good or bad.
Our solution to both issues is a simple website that has a very limited selection of only good titles. We know they’re good because they’re loved by both critics and viewers at the same time. Below is a list of the best ones currently on Netflix Canada as rated by our users.
Netflix algorithms are hiding good movies from you. Our weekly newsletter uncovers them.
