  1. Don't do this again, ever

    I god damn agree this list is terrible. The best are 20+ and everything else is english biased. The grey was damn good i admit but why isnt the man from nowhere on this list. Its one of the only few movies to be liked by 100 percent of all critics registered to rotten tomatoes. You know what that means? A too damn good movie and it didnt make your list chances are because your too narrow to bother watching from the foreign list which pretty much holds a majority of great movies. Shaolin beig one of them as well, god that movie is awesome and didnt make your list. Holy hell Neither did any of the Ip man movies made your list. Now before you try to defend yourself with. “Everyone holds their own opinion and likes their own genre” i encourage you to shut the hell up because you have the the liver to watch the walking dead(which IMO is goddamn amazing) but obviously refuse to add any ASIAN movie that was/is ON netflix that fit the same if not more tags compared to the walking dead. The ratings for Ip Man 2 alone exceeds mostly every other movie on netflix as of now if not it is the best user rated that is currently on netflix. Then again you wouldnt know because your too busy taping off the foreign and asian sections of your screen.
    PS no one try to defend kristie here because that would be just pathetic.
    Thumbs up to Sean who before me expressed in one sentence how ridiculous kristie’s whole post is(no dont try and act smart i know he wrote 3 sentences, but one of which gets the point across the most strongly over the other)

    • Sean

      Dude, seriously? “I encourage you to shut the hell up because you have the liver to watch the walking dead but obviously refuse to add any Asian movie that is/was on Netflix…” Where do you see some kind of connection between likes the walking dead and refuses to include Asian movies? Maybe because they speak english, they simply havent watched a lot of foreign movies, or because there are tons more american movies on netflix. Whoever wrote this list simply made a list of some movies to gives people ideas of stuff to watch, nowhere did it say “these are the absolute greatest movies ever made in the world, everyone agrees and if you don’t, you’re wrong” You don’t need to get all butt hurt and write a whole freaking essay about how the reviewer is an awful racist just because some of your favorite movies aren’t on their list

  2. Sean

    I’ve seen most of these. Hated 90% of them. The only ones I liked were in the 20’s

  3. bruske

    Breaking Bad should be towards the top of the list if not #1 IMO.

  4. Austinot

    A Bronx Tale is one of my all time favorite films. Great choice Kristie! I’d be interested to see a review strictly of TV series on Netflix. I’ve enjoyed Tudors, Dexter, Hell on Wheels, Sherlock, Revenge and many others. Would love to know your take.

  5. Hey, some movies that i actually never heard of. I’ll check these out!

  6. Toaster Strudel

  9. Kay
