Top 70 Movies and Shows to Watch on Netflix

If you're anything like me you'll have spent the last few months scrolling endlessly through any and all streaming services you have a subscription for. You've had more movie nights than ever and spent hours on end moaning that 'there is nothing to waaaatch' when there clearly is because you've just scrolled through pages and pages of things you could watch. Yep, you're not alone.

One of my favourite things to do at the weekend is to go to the cinema and see what's out, but I will say I'm a sucker for a classic and anything starring Hugh Grant in the late '90s is a big hit with me. There is something extremely comforting in watching a film you've already seen. Maybe it's knowing that you won't be surprised by how the story unfolds. That there are no twists and turns in the story line that you aren't already emotionally prepared for and you can look forward to your favourite parts. You can really relax and immerse yourself in what is happening and you will still laugh at the jokes and cry at the sad bits. It's the perfect rainy day recipe. 1 cup of blankets, 5 cups of tea and a good film to finish it off.

I'm just as in love with shows, I love that feeling when you're 3 seasons in and it's all just so exciting that you can't stop. Netflix is like 'are you still watching?' and you shamefully click yes and tell yourself just one more episode before bed. Except it never is because every episode ends with you wanting to know more and you're torn because the sensible part of your brain is telling you to pace yourself, spread it over a few days and take your time! But the other half of your brain, the side you will likely listen to, is telling you that you need to know what happens NOW. It's not much of an argument though because you've already clicked play and are 5 minutes in.

When there is so much out there and you don't know what is good and what is bad, you just need a little nudge in the right direction. Even though I've watched so many films and shows, quite a lot of the time when I'm in the mood I seem to forget them all. Because of that, I began compiling a list every time I am reminded of one. Every time I say 'oh I love that show!' and 'aw, that's such a good film'. I've been storing it all in a note on my phone but that note is becoming quite heavy so it makes sense for me to share it with you.

I've narrowed this down to all that's on Netflix, but I can definitely make another!

So next time your brain has gone blank too you can refer to this list for some inspiration. I'm still bitter that they took off Notting Hill.
