Netflix’s Top 250 Best Movies To Watch In Lock down!

Netflix’s Top 250 Best Movies To Watch In Lockdown, According To Rotten Tomatoes
 

Everyone around the country is stuck inside playing video games and watching streams right now, and you may be starting to get desperate for content to consume to alleviate the boredom. Well, how does 250 movies on Netflix sound? Gotta make the most out of that subscription, I suppose.

Netflix is…generally not known for its top-notch movie selection, as many of the rights to films go to other services or stay on demand where you have to pay for them individually. But they do have a good amount of movies, and are starting to make rather good original films of their own.

The problem with Netflix is that it doesn’t have a rating system to actually tell you what’s good. You see a movie or show, you have to Google a review or a rating somewhere. That’s where Rotten Tomatoes comes in
