Best Movies on Netflix Right Now

With a streaming catalog mixed between Netflix original movies and endless amounts of well-known movies like Collateral, The Power of the Dog, and Austin Powers, there’s no shortage of potential viewing options when it comes to Netflix’s impressive lineup of movies.

Here are some of the movies you can currently find streaming on Netflix that we’d recommend checking out.

The movie’s second half is touch and go, but Collateral is a movie well worth watching for fans of crime movies — made all the better by superb editing, writing, direction, and Foxx and Cruise’s venerable performances.

Thriller: Collateral

There’s a reason James Baldwin is commonly considered one of the finest writers in the English language. Drawing on his experiences as a Black man in a time of racial tension and segregation in the US, Baldwin explored issues of race and prejudice throughout his illustrious career.

Romance: If Beale Street Could Talk

Director David Fincher has found a welcome home at Netflix in recent years, leading perhaps to some of his best and most accoladed work to date. Proof of this fact can be found in his 2020 biopic, Mank, a passion project of Fincher’s dating all the way back to the late 1990s.

Biopic: Mank

Groovy, baby! Ahem, sorry, I couldn’t help it. But in all seriousness, all three Austin Powers being on Netflix is indeed something to celebrate.

Comedy: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Sam Montgomery (Hilary Duff) is a seventeen-year-old high schooler who works at a diner owned by her greedy, manipulative stepmother (Jennifer Coolidge). Her only means of escape is writing letters to her pen pal (Chad Michael Murray), her school’s star athlete, who she agrees to meet at the annual Halloween dance.

Family: A Cinderella Story

Many of the movie’s cast play genuine personages from the 18th century that tragically are not as often remembered as their white counterparts like Jesse James or Wild Bill Hickock — figures like lawman Bass Reeves, outlaw Cherokee Bill, or Wild West showman Bill Pickett.

Western: The Harder They Fall
