The Big Short

IMDb Rating: 7.8
Director: Adam McKay

Genre: Comedy, Drama & Biography
Released: 2015

The Big Short is based on the book of the same name which tells the very true story of the small group of investors who, predicted that the housing market would crash, and, therefore, bet big and made a ton of cash when the economy did eventually crash. If you remember the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, this film manages to explain it in an enjoyable and insightful way.

With a stellar cast that includes Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt, if you’re after a smart comedy that’ll make you think, The Big Short is one of the best Netflix movie options for you.

Blade Runner 2049

Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures

IMDb rating: 8.0
Director: Ridley Scott
Starring: Harrison Ford & Ryan Gosling
Genre: Action & Drama
Released: 2017

It’s rare for a sequel to be as good as the first film, but Blade Runner 2049 managed to do so. It’s also excellent as a stand-alone movie to stream if you haven’t watched the original Blade Runner. Set 30 years after the first film, Gosling plays a Blade Runner (police officers who track and eliminate fugitive ‘replicants’ — robots that look just like humans) named K who discovers a long-kept secret that leads him to track down missing Blade Runner Rick Deckard.

Harrison Ford reprises his role, Deckard, from the first Blade Runner film (which unfortunately isn’t available to stream on Netflix) and whether you’re a fan of the cult classic Blade Runner or just love neo-noir sci-fi movies, you’ll highly enjoy Blade Runner 2049.

Starring: James Rolleston, Te Aho Aho Eketone-Whitu
Genre: Comedy & Drama

Set in New Zealand in the 80s, Boy is about a young child who finally gets the chance to know his estranged father. An unconventional coming of age story, that’s wonderfully hilarious with some truly heart-wrenching and gritty moments; something Taika Waititi excels at.

If you enjoyed Waititi’s more mainstream films like Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok, you’ll love Boy.

The Bourne Identity

IMDb rating: 7.9

Starring: Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Julia Stiles
Genre: Action, Mystery & Thriller
Released: 2002

After being rescued at sea, a man with no memory must quickly figure out who he is, as he soon realises he’s being pursued by assassins.

Breaker Morant

Image Credit: Public Domain

IMDb rating: 7.9
Director: Bruce Beresford
Starring: Edward Woodward, Jack Thompson, John Waters
Genre: Drama & War
Released: 1980

Based on a true story, Breaker Morant is compelling and bold. The film – available to stream now on Netflix –beautifully questions whether soldiers should be held accountable for their actions during war, and follows three Australian lieutenants as they face prosecution for killing prisoners. Despite the fact that they were acting under orders, their heads are put on the chopping block.

Breaker Morant is an unapologetically anti-war film but is so thought-provoking, every Australian should watch it on Netflix at least once in their lifetime.

Catch Me If You Can

Image Credit: DreamWorks Pictures

IMDb rating: 8.1
Director: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio
Genre: Crime & Drama
Released: 2002

Suspenseful, clever, and with some light comedy thrown in for good measure, Catch Me If You Can centres around the very true story of Frank Abagnale Jr; a 17-year-old con man who managed to pass millions of dollars through forged checks. The film has a cat and mouse feel to it as FBI agent Carl Hanratty, played by Hanks, tries to track down and arrest Abagnale Jr, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who relishes the chase.

Well-written and with impeccable acting Catch Me If You Can remains one of the best movies on Netflix Australia.

Dallas Buyers Club

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto
Genre: Biography & Drama
Released: 2013

Set in 1985, a racist and homophobic cowboy learns that he is HIV positive. He ends up partnering with a transgender woman to smuggle AIDS medication that works but is not yet FDA approved into the US, not just for himself, but for other AIDS patients too.

Both McConaughey and Leto turn in fantastic performances – they both won Oscars for this film – and the film provides an insightful look into the scary American health care system. Dallas Buyers Club isn’t just one of the best films on Netflix, but it’s one the best movies ever.

El Camino follows on from the events of the iconic and popular television series Breaking Bad. The film illuminates what happened to Jesse after the final episode and was written & directed by Breaking Bad’s creator, Vince Gilligan.

El Camino is engaging, well-acted and works as a perfect epilogue to Breaking Bad; although the film is also enjoyable for those who haven’t seen Breaking Bad.

Ex Machina

Thrilling and face-paced, Ex Machina is truly a brilliant film to stream on Netflix right now.

If you like Saving Private Ryan, you’ll love this film.

Going In Style

Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures

IMDb rating: 6.6
Director: Zach Braff
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin
Genre: Comedy
Released: 2017

It may not have the highest IMDb rating ever, but we think Going In Style is one of the best heist movies on Netflix. Incredibly amusing, Going In Style starts with three lifelong friends who are all the victims of a corporate, yet immoral, bank restructure. This consequently leaves all three strapped for cash in their old age, and so, desperate to provide for their retirement plans and families, they hatch a plan to rob the bank for the pension money that’s rightfully theirs. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin are all as brilliant as ever and clearly have fun in their respective roles.

If you’re looking for a light-hearted film to stream on Netflix that’ll give you a few good chuckles along the way, Going In Style is a perfect option.

Gone Girl

The Hangover

Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures

IMDb rating: 7.7
Director: Todd Phillips
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha
Genre: Comedy
Released: 2009

It’s the outrageous comedy that became an instant hit; if you haven’t seen The Hangover, what rock have you been living under? Four men go to Vegas for a bachelor party but in the morning the groom-to-be is missing and the remaining three men have no memory of the previous night. Many hi-jinx ensue as the men try to remember what happened and try to find their missing friend.

While some of the jokes haven’t aged well, The Hangover still has some hilarious moments and remains one of the best comedy movies on Netflix. It’s definitely one of those movies that you can watch over and over again; especially if you’re in the mood for a film that’s not so serious.

Hot Fuzz

Image Credit: Universal Pictures

IMDb rating: 7.8
Director: Edgar Wright
Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Bill Nighy
Genre: Action, Comedy, Mystery
Released: 2007

Hot Fuzz follows Nicholas Angel, a skilled London police officer who is transferred to the small, quiet town of Sandford because his brilliance makes the rest of the force look bad. Angel is paired with oafish Danny Butterman and the two clash when people from Sandford start turning up dead.

A hilarious but smart spoof of the buddy-cop genre, if you’re after a good chuckle, Hot Fuzz is the movie for you.


Image Credit: Netflix

IMDb rating: 7.4
Director: Jeremiah Zagar
Starring: Adam Sandler, Queen Latifah, Juancho Hernangomez
Genre: Comedy, Drama & Sport
Released: 2022

Hustle follows Sandler’s character, Stanley Sugerman – a pro basketball scout who gets fired. However, after seeing Bo Cruz, a Spanish amateur baller, play, Stanley makes it his mission to get Bo into the NBA. The plot is simple but compelling, especially for those who love basketball.

Plus, Sandler’s performance is next-level; many believe the actor should be nominated for an Oscar because of his performance in Hustle.

Inside Man

Image Credit: Universal Pictures

IMDb rating: 7.6
Director: Spike Lee
Starring: Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Willem Dafoe, Christopher Plummer, Chiwetel Ejiofor
Genre: Crime, Drama
Released: 2006

Directed by the iconic Spike Lee, this thriller heist film follows an elaborate bank heist that takes place in 24 hours. Inside Man stars Denzel Washington as Detective Keith Frazier, the hostage negotiator, and Clive Owen as the soft-spoken mastermind behind the heist. Smart with a few twists, this cat & mouse film is a must-watch.

With an ensemble cast that makes for iconic reading, Inside Man is easily one of the best thriller movies available to stream on Netflix Australia right now.

John Wick

Image Credit: Lionsgate

IMDb rating: 7.4
Director: Chad Stahleski
Starring: Keanue Reeves, Alfie Allen
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Released: 2014

A legendary assassin, named John Wick, comes out of retirement when his dog — a gift from his late wife — is killed by a mobster. One of the best and, to be honest, more original action movies to be released in recent years, John Wick is filled with violence. But unlike most films that focus on hitmen and mobsters, it’s not just bloody gore with no substance or plot. The characters in this film are nuanced and three-dimensional; especially John Wick himself, thanks to both excellent writing and Keanu Reeve’s flawless performance.

With some seriously sublime fight scene choreography and a clever story, John Wick is one of the best movies on Netflix right now. Better still, you can also watch the second and third John Wick movies on Netflix, to prepare yourself for John Wick: Chapter 4.


Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures

IMDb rating: 8.4
Director: Todd Phillips
Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Released: 2019

This gritty and grounded film explores the origin story behind Batman’s most famous nemesis, the Joker. With an Oscar-winning performance from Phoenix, stunning cinematography and a plot that leaves you feeling conflicted – the Joker does terrible things near the end of the film but you can kind of empathize with why he does them – this is one hell of a film.

If you’re a fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, you’ll love Joker.

Kindergarten Cop

Image Credit: Universal Pictures

IMDb rating: 6.2 IMDb score
Director: Ivan Reitman
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Penelope Ann Miller, Pamela Reed
Genre: Action, Comedy & Crime
Released: 1990

Kindergarten Cop is a classic Arnie movie – goofy but with some genuinely funny moments (“it’s not a tumour”) and a super simple plot; in an attempt to bust a drug kingpin, an LAPD detective goes undercover as a substitute kindergarten teacher. Is this movie the best and most cleverest movie of all time? No.

But it’s enjoyable and easy to watch; perfect to put on after a busy day as it’ll help you unwind.

King Richard

Image Credit: Warner Bros.

​​IMDb rating: 7.5
Director: Reinaldo Marcus Green
Starring: Will Smith, Aunjanue Ellis, Jon Bernthal
Genre: Biography, Drama & Sport
Released: 2021

Smith won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in King Richard, you know, moments after he infamously slapped Chris Rock at the Academy Awards’ 94th ceremony… But hey, the film is extremely good.

Based on a true story, Smith plays Richard Williams and the story focuses on how he coached his two daughters Venus and Serena in tennis.

Knives Out

Image Credit: Lionsgate

IMDb rating: 7.9
Director: Rian Johnson
Starring: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Released: 2019

The only way to describe Knives Out is clever. Within the first ten minutes, you’ll think you’ve figured the whole murder mystery out, even before Daniel Craig’s character Benoit Blanc. But then the rug is pulled out from under you and you’ll be so engrossed in this witty comedy trying to figure out the puzzle. Enjoyable, compelling and refreshingly original – plus every member of the stellar ensemble cast is on their A-game acting-wise – makes Knives Out one of the best movies on Netflix Australia.

Knives Out is arguably better written than an Agatha Christie novel and is a movie you have to see at least once before you die.

And, while Knives Out will have no relation with the sequel Knives Out 2 – which we expect to be released later in 2022 – it will see Daniel Craig reprise his role to solve an entirely new mystery.

The Lincoln Lawyer

Image Credit: Lionsgate

IMDb rating: 7.3 IMDb score
Director: Brad Furman
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe
Genre: Crime, Drama & Mystery
Released: 2011

McConaughey stars as Mick Haller, a defence lawyer working in Lincoln, who is asked to defend a wealthy playboy who’s been accused of assaulting a prostitute. However, when Haller discovers his client might be guilty of more than just this one crime, things turn sinister…

McConaughey turns in a great performance in The Lincoln Lawyer – which is compelling and definitely worth adding to your watch list.

Meet The Parents

Image Credit: Universal Pictures/DreamWorks Pictures

IMDb rating: 7.0
Director: Jay Roach
Starring: Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson
Genre: Comedy
Released: 2000

When male nurse Greg Focker, played by Stiller decides he wants to propose to his girlfriend, he seeks the permission of her father, Jack Byrnes. However, Jack, played by De Niro, takes an instant disliking to Greg and hilarity ensues.

With fantastic ‘awkward’ comedy that Stiller excels at and De Niro’s impressive performance, Meet The Parents is one of the best Netflix movies to watch if you’re in the mood to laugh.

IMDb rating: 7.4
Director: Oriol Paulo
Starring: Álbaro Morte, Adriana Ugarte, Chino Darín
Genre: Drama, Mystery
Released: 2018

This incredible film explores time travel themes and a compelling mystery. Mirage is a foreign film hailing from Spain and if you’ve watched Money Heist, you’ll recognise Álvaro Morte, who plays The Professor. Mirage centres on a 72-hour electrical storm that occurs in both 1989 and 2014. The main character Vera, whose present is 2014, seems to be able to save a boy from death in ‘89. However, preventing his death has terrible consequences for Vera.

Filled with suspense and intrigue, if you liked The Butterfly Effect, Mirage explores very similar themes in a very clever and emotional way. A must-watch Netflix movie.

The film was nominated for six Academy Awards and is critically acclaimed for its story, direction and acting; particularly the performances of Pitt and Hill. It’s easily one of the best movies to stream on Netflix Australia.

Released: 2001

With one of the greatest ensemble casts to ever appear on screen, Ocean’s Elevel is an excellently executed heist film. It follows Danny Ocean, played by Clooney, as he recruits a team to pull off the most elaborate heist of all time. There isn’t a single weak link, in terms of performance, in the stellar ensemble cast and even though you may know how everything comes together at the end, it doesn’t stop you from watching it over and over again.

Whether you’ve seen it or not, you better add Ocean’s Eleven to your must-watch Netflix Australia movies list.

Two Hands

Image Credit: REP Distribution

IMDb rating: 7.1
Director: Gregor Jordan
Starring: Heath Ledger, Rose Byrne

Ledger plays Jimmy, a nineteen-year-old who unwittingly gets himself into major debt with a local gangster. To pay off his debt, Jimmy decides to rob a bank. A young Rose Byrne, well before her successful Hollywood acting career took off, plays Ledger’s love interest.
