Top Netflix Films

Got Netflix and cant decide what you want to watch? Here are the best films to watch that would satisfy any genre mood you crave for this evening.
After a failed charge on the German Trenches, three British soldiers find themselves stranded in No Man's Land. The trio now have to find their way back to allied trenches. Dodging enemy snipers, artillery fire and the constant threat of a German offensive charge, the real fear is being mistakenly shot by their own forces. Forbidden Ground (2013) captures the tragedy of human sacrifice and experience of trench warfare.

When four police officers raid a gang hideout to avenge the death of their colleague, they soon find themselves trapped in the apartment complex when a legion of vicious zombies swarms through the building. Out numbered and trapped, the two groups have to settle their differences and work together if they want to survive the nightmare. A zombie apocalypse movie filled with tension and terror mixed with gangster crime violence. 

A rundown spaceship and its crew find themselves at the centre of a cosmic conflict. Caught up in a conspiracy involving a galactic superpower “The Alliance”, the captain and his mercenaries are pursued by a galactic military force lead by a unstoppable assassin and space-roaming savages. This wild wild west sci-fi is stuffed with dazzling space travel and space action.

When a young suburban couple arrive to their family vacation home, their peaceful and quite retreat is disturbed when three mask invaders, stalk and terrorize the couple. In this heart pounding tense tale of survival, living in such isolation can have its downfall. A perfect film for eerie tension and cheap scares.

Winner of four Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actress, Annie Hall (1977) is known to be Woody Allen’s most iconic romantic comedies about a neurotic writer Alvy Singer and quirky aspiring singer Annie Hall. Both witty and in touch with the basic human thoughts and feelings, Annie Hall is a true reflection on the theme of relationships and the examination of the process of falling in love, then  falling out of love but only to be dragged back.

A science-fiction French horror, a virus has spread across the country and transforms humanity into bloodthirsty creatures. When a couple head to a military base in the mountains, the husband becomes infected. As the wife stands by his side trying to prevent the mutation, he slowly transforms and the wife begins to fear for her life and for the future of their unborn child. Directed by  David Morlet, Mutants (2009) certainly does infuse its own emotional horror by a story that is driven by futile hope.

A Walt Disney Pictures action packed sci-fi adventure takes us on a stylish journey of a young stunt pilot who comes across an experimental Nazi jet pack. Transforming him into a one man air force with light-speed, our Rocketeer soon becomes a target for mobsters, government spies, FBI agents and millionaire Howard Hughes. The Rocketeer (1991) is certainly a charming adventure sci-fi and one of Disney's most underrated films.

A coming age journey of a young man desire to join the marines like his father and grandfather and become somewhat of a war hero but instead takes a nose dive into madness and obsession for his first kill. Based on Marine Anthony Swofford's biting memoir about his stint as a sniper in Operation Desert Storm.

Steven Spielberg’s Munich (2005) is certainly one of the most gripping thrillers and dramas that is politically impartial. Based on the actual events of the Palestinian terrorists who held and killed Israeli athletes during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, thus prompting a Mossad agent (Eric Bana) to track down and kill alleged members of the group Black September.

A rock-bound maximum security prison located off the shore from the San Francisco Bay. Clint Eastwood stars in a brilliant dramatization of the one most successful escape from the notorious  Alcatraz. A prison where no has ever escaped, or ever will. Until now!

A hijacked Air Force One with plenty of close quarter shooting and combat, Harrison Ford as the president of the United States and Gary Oldman as a sadistic ultra nationalist Russian terrorist. What more can you ask for in one of the greatest 90’s action thrillers?

A wacky satire on the fashion world industry follows Derek Zoolander as his career hits so last year. Even worst his world is turned upside down when he discovers that a fashion mogul is behind an assassination plot to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The brainwashed assassin to commit the crime is Zoolander himself.

Going to stay in and celebrate the New Year watching a movie? Why not watch 2012 and witness a series of global catastrophes that threatens to annihilate mankind. You can look back and tell your kids in the future “That really happened, I survived that”.

Why not spend the last weekend of 2013 with George A. Romero’s third film in Romero's Dead Series Day Of The Dead (1985). When a small group of military officers and scientists settle in an underground bunker as the world above is overrun by flesh eating zombies, it seems that time is all they have before the zombies or their insanity rips them apart.

A movie adaptation of George Orwell's novel, follows two people who break the law by falling in love in a totalitarian state. Directed by Michael Radford 1984 is a chilling reminder of how easily authoritarian ideology can grip society and use fear as a weapon.

If you loved Baz Luhrmann modern take on Romeo + Juliet (1996) then you would certainly enjoy Ralph Fiennes directorial debut of his modern update of Shakespeare's tale Coriolanus (2011). A story about a supercilious general who is banished by his own Republic that he served all his life. Now he joins his foes to seek out a bloody vengeance.

It has been 10 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger's last lead role from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines back in 2003. The Last Stand is what exactly what you expect from Arnie film. Guns, blood, explosions and a American Sheriff that has a odd Austrian accent. 

Sylvester Stallone action packed, crime, sci-fi, thriller, will definitely fill the empty void and lust for action. In a dystopian future, Dredd, the most famous street judge in his futuristic megalopolis is framed for murder and the system he defended and lived for turns on him.

You’re not a true Sci-Fi fan until you watch Mel Brooks’s 1987 Spaceballs. A science fiction parody from influential Sci-Fi films like the Star Wars trilogy, Star Trek, Alien, and the Planet of the Apes.  This is certainly a cult classic that you have to watch.

A British crime thriller directed by Luis Prieto. Mid-level drug-dealer Frank (Richard Coyle) life spins out of control when he borrows £48,000 worth of cocaine from a dangerous Turkish drug lord. What was supposed to be a sure thing now ends up empty handed. With no cash or drugs, Frank has one week to pay his debt.

A popular game show host, producer and creator of the The Gong Show. Barris also claimed to be an assassin for the CIA, going on secret and dangerous missions. 

A romantic comedy drama written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Punch Drunk Love is the first major picture that marked Adam Sandler's acting career away from the goofy comedy.

A post apocalyptic horror directed by Xavier Gens. When a nuclear attack sends a groups of survivors sheltering in basement apartment building. With no sign of any rescue and supplies dwindling away. It seems "the lucky ones died in the blast"

  1. “Serenity” is one of the best sci fi movies on netflix. It is actually a continuation of the TV series “Firefly” and continues after the final episode with the same cast.
