These days Netflix may have serious competition from the likes of Amazon Prime and Now TV. But despite Amazon creating some great news shows and Now TV providing us with the best Sky has to offer, Netflix is still our favourite place for movies and TV shows.
There are lots of reasons why that's the case, including its (mostly) intuitive interface, offline modes, original series and films, huge catalogue of movies and, most importantly, the fact it's constantly updated week-on-week with some of the best entertainment on the planet.
Every day Netflix adds at least a movie or two, and every week at least three or four of them tend to be worth watching. This is what sets it apart from Amazon Prime, which has a great back catalogue, as well as lots of mediocre and, quite frankly, rubbish movies in its vaults.
March on Netflix sees the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hitting the streaming platform, as well as the 2017 remake of Beauty and the Beast.
You'll also be able to watch Ghost in the Shell, Rush Hour 2, and the recent BBC CGI adaptation of Watership Down.
If you're after a Netflix Original, check out The Highwayman, which follows Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson as two Texas detectives as they try to take down Bonnie and Clyde.

It's great news that Netflix keeps its catalogue of movies topped up with fresh, award-winning and super entertaining titles. But what this constant stream of great flicks also means is that many of us spend a lot of time scrolling through anything and everything the service has to offer.
And, as many of us are all too aware, often the dilemma of so much great stuff to choose from (which is known as ‘decision fatigue’ in psychology circles) leaves us feeling fed up.
In an attempt to put an end to what we’re coining ‘Netflix fatigue’ once and for all, we’ve created this extensive list to the best movies that Netflix UK has to offer you right now. That's right. No more endless scrolling and no more movie-induced anxiety that you've made the wrong choice.
We'll be updating this cinematic hall of fame at least once a week, so be sure to keep it bookmarked so you can find out what's hot and ready to be watched on Netflix in the UK right now.
Coming soon to Netflix
If you’ve been signed up to Netflix for a while now, you’ll be well aware there are lots of mediocre movie choices. But if you only have time for the best of the best, don't waste those all too precious minutes searching through the site's extensive and exhausting back catalogue. Instead, delve straight into this guide.
To make your life easier (and enable your worrying Netflix addiction), we’ve divided more than 40 movie recommendations up into categories that we're sure will suit every taste. We’ve got indie and horror through to kids and documentaries.
And make sure you keep checking back. Unlike Netflix's TV output, which seems to stay on the streaming platform for longer, movies on the streaming site tend to appear and disappear quickly. Enjoy!
