Watching foreign movies resembles travelling in many aspects: you get to see new cities and surroundings, hear new languages or accents, and be exposed to new ideas, issues, and ways of thinking. The only difference between travelling and foreign films may just be that the latter doesn't cost nearly as much.Sounds great, right? Except that this is also exactly the reason we don't watch them. We don't want to spend two hours struggling to understand, or trying to develop new interests, when what we want from a movie most of all is to relax and be entertained.This is a misconception, and it came either from stereotypes or weird movie viewing in language classes. Most good foreign movies are in fact as agreeable as any American movie, if not more.So here is the deal: we are not asking you to take our word for how mind-blowingly great foreign films can be, instead, we have gathered 10 of the best films on Netflix, watch any one of them, and let us know.All 10 are highly-rated on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes and are widely recognized as "good", like all movies on agoodmovietowatch.

Tough week? Instead of aimlessly binging a crappy TV show you can turn to good ol' movies. Here is a list of no-brainer, easy, happy, lighthearted, and satisfying movies to watch. All of these are not only vouched for by our staff, they are highly-rated by critics and viewers.

It always sucks to have to wait a long time between when movie is released and when it's available on Netflix. Unfortunately, other than the Originals, that's the streaming platform's model. Ironically, by the time these movies do hit the catalog, we've either forgotten about them or didn't even know they existed. We now all just follow the latest releases on Netflix, not the latest non-blockbuster theatrical releases. To help you navigate through all of this, we've ranked our favourite movies from the past 4 years that are available for streaming right now. All of these movies generated a lot of attention when they were released theatrically, but now are not very talked about. Don't miss them.

We asked our 83,000 Facebook followers about the last thing they watched and loved. There were some "it's so bad it's good" titles, which we had to skip - but once those were weeded out, the result was pretty amazing. There are hidden gems like the British crime show Marcella, the powerful yet little-known Diane Lane movie Secretariat, and many others. But there are also new sleeper hits like Ozark, Mindhunter, Wild Wild Country... All in all, we're not the least bit surprised but we're happy to report that our Facebook followers have a good taste. If you're looking for the next movies or show to watch, look no further, these are amazing picks. Please note that they are not ordered.1. HostilesMOVIE (pictured above) suggested by By Jessica D.2.

We all procrastinate on watching documentaries and understandably so. If you're coming home from work, why risk frying your brain with two hours of Indonesian ethnic cleansing when you can watch teenagers fall in love and wonder what's going to happen to their relationship after high school? That said, documentaries are not always on ethnic cleansing and we're not always tired after work. So when in the mood for one, the next obstacle becomes finding something worthy of your time on Netflix. This is proving harder and harder with all the new crappy movies and countless pseudo intellectual design shows they keep putting out into the world. This list is your guide to the true best documentary movies on Netflix right now. It is ranked by staff rating, what we call "vouch percentage". Like all suggestions on agoodmovietowatch.com, it only has highly-rated titles. Now, there is no real excuse to not watch documentaries (except for coming home from work of course).

After our list for the best movies on Netflix was shared to reach millions of subscribers, we have compiled another list for shows, with just as much care. Like all entries on agoodmovietowatch.com, these are highly-rated and little-known recommendations; they're shows you have yet to watch, and you'll love them once you do. You can find all the highly-rated, little-known show suggestions here. agoodmovietowatch is your gateway to on-demand streaming services, but instead of recommending the same movies and shows to you you've been hearing about for the past 20 years, we focus on the good ones that were overlooked. To do this, we only recommend titles that have received a high rating from viewers combined with a high score from critics. This means that these entries have been appreciated by both, so you can trust that they’re awesome. We also only suggest titles  that didn’t make a huge splash at the box office or which didn’t get the attention they deserved, so there is little chance you have already seen them.  

Netflix's homepage has become a mix of new titles that are there just because of that (being new) and bad titles recommended to you after you watched good titles (of the same genre). To bypass this you might need to hit the search bar. The catalog is actually quite rich and has a lot to offer, but the homepage remains an obstacle that most fall for. Most movies on Netflix remain little-known. Below is our longest list of hidden gems on Netflix, a diversified selection of handpicked good titles. This list is plugged directly to our Netflix database, which means that it will be updated as soon as a title leaves or comes to Netflix. Enjoy.
