Best Movies on Netflix Right Now

With a streaming catalog mixed between Netflix original movies and endless amounts of well-known movies like Captain Phillips, Skyfall, and The Bad Guys, 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.

Tom Hanks has starred in many, many films over the years, many of which have gone on to achieve major critical acclaim. Arguably one of his best and most believable performances over the years, though, came with his 2013 biographical film, Captain Phillips.

The Coen brothers may be more well-known for their earlier films and their 2007 Oscar winner, No Country for Old Men. However, it’s also worth checking out some of the sibling’s most recent films, such as the 2016 satirical comedy, Hail, Caesar!

Comedy: Hail, Caesar!

With how popular Enola Holmes 2 has been on Netflix, it seems worth revisiting some earlier takes on her intrepid detective older brother, Sherlock Holmes — including this 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

Based on the successful 1987 play of the same name, Steel Magnolias finds a deft blend between comedy and drama, focusing on how a group of women are able to bond with each other, joking during the good times of their lives and grieving together during the bad.

Drama: Steel Magnolias

Paying homage to the numerous Bond films that came before it, Skyfall is a darker and more mature exploration of 007, as well as his immediate superior, M (the only movie that truly explores M and the complex relationship she has with her agents).

Action: Skyfall

The newest true crime series that has been making its rounds on Netflix, Killer Sally is an engrossing look at a wholly under-acknowledged murder case that received a ton of media attention in the ‘90s, but has since faded from the public mind.
