Who doesn’t love a movie that’s won the coveted Oscars….duh…movies like this speak volume. They steal headlines. They’ve won millions of hearts and still continue to.
They have joined the extraordinary league of “top-highest-engrossing-movies.” It is why everyone wants to get their hands on it and the fact that against all the odds, they will always have a place in our hearts.
Anyways, just in case you are still thinking about what to watch, start with the Oscars. This will help you narrow your search.

Start Reviewing Movies and TV Shows:-
Still, getting the same boring recommendations as before? Well, it’s probably because you never rate the movies you have watched, or you intentionally ignore the rating icon on Netflix.
Netflix is not like Merlin, you know. It doesn’t read minds. If you jump reviews and refuse to rate movies you have watched previously or in the past months, its algorithms will assume you are okay with it.
To get better recommendations on Netflix, star rating the movies you watch.
However, Netflix has pulled down its five-star rating icon. You get a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down” icon.
If you like a movie, give it a thumbs-up, and you’ll get more of that. If you don’t, thumb down anyway, and it will stop shoving such movies into your queue.

Watch Foreign Movies With Subtitles-
Once in a while, we get tired of being served the same dish over and over again. And like monotony, boredom sets in. Movies are no exception.
If you have been longing and craving to watch some foreign films on Netflix, you are spot-on on time. Virtually all movies on Netflix now have subtitles.
So, grab some popcorn, go to your favourite seat, and browse through any foreign flick of your choice.
Unfortunately, some, if not most, of the subtitles, are intelligible. To solve this, log in to your Netflix account on desktop or android (the iOS app doesn’t support this).
Go to accounts, then subtitle appearance. You will find a list of options for changing letter colouring, text size, etc.
Watching movies on-the-go is undoubtedly fun. But when you have a heaping load of work needing your attention at the office or books begging to be opened and studied, you can only wish to postpone your view for later.
Netflix allows you to do just that. Most TV shows and movies exclusive to Netflix can be downloaded and viewed offline.
This way, you won’t lose them in the massive traffic of movies hitting the streaming network. To watch a movie offline, click on the title and hit the download icon.
Or at the bottom of your screen, hover over the menu and tap the downloads button. Next, tap “find something to download.”

How to find the perfect TV Shows and Movies on Netflix?
Netflix’s endless curated list of exciting TV shows and movies will leave flushed and overwhelmed.
It can be difficult trying to pick a movie or TV show for yourself; we know that. We understand Netflix has an annoying way of pushing recommendations that are just not the “it” for the moment.
Sometimes you want something different, but Netflix keeps pushing boring recommendations to you that are not really your taste. As nifty as those algorithms on Netflix might be, they still can’t get it right.
Therefore, we have dug a way out for you to get the best in your search when using the online streaming service.
This way, you can narrow your search as your home in on the particular kind of movie you want.
These curated tips are exclusive for the desktop version. Since search varies and some handy features are missing on the apps, especially on the iOS version, our suggestions are focused on optimizing your search experience using Netflix’s desktop interface.
Search by Genre-
When one’s options are narrowed, it’s easier to weave your way through, ignore things that are unhelpful, focus on what’s necessary.
In the same manner, filtering your selections through genre will effectively and efficiently give you a better search result on Netflix.
The streaming service has huddled movies that have similar storylines and plots in one place. This way, when you search using the genre tool, you will find more films in their appropriate niche.
To find and access the genre feature on your desktop, on top of the Netflix page, click on Movies or TV shows. This will reveal a genre menu. Click again to reveal a tray of genres. And from here, you are good to go.
Search by Year or Rating-
Ratings shape our opinions about a particular movie. If the ratings are not off the roof or eclipse the average rating mark, they are not worth watching the least.
The best movies are usually the ones with the best of praise. They steal the top spot on the movie’s charts.
Filtering your choices by rating on Netflix can leave you scratching your head a bit if you don’t know how to go about it.
To get faster and better results, type Instantwatcher.com into your URL box on your browser. InstantWatcher doesn’t just allow you to narrow your Search on Netflix using their rating tool but also yearly too.
Click search on the website’s homepage to reveal sliders that enable you to sift through Netflix horde of movies by year. Besides, each film is attached to its IMDb rating, Netflix rating, runtime, etc.
Aside from filtering by rating and year, Instantwatcher has sweetened the deal on its search tool. You get to see movies that have been handpicking by critics or movie experts for your viewing pleasure.

Find Similar Movies-
There’s nothing we love more than seeing a good bunch of related movies clustered in one area to the movie we have watched or about to.
It saves us from trying to browse harder for movies like that. All we have do is click on them, save and pin them to be watched or downloaded at a later hour.
Netflix is spot on when it comes to making recommendations on related movies. However, this feature isn’t available on all platforms.
It has surprisingly been clipped from Apple TV, whilst still visible on the Netflix iOS app. It is tagged as “More Like This” section nailed to the title page of the movie.
If the Netflix app is a little bugged up and can’t seem to serve you the result you want, quickly visit Netflix on desktop.
Hover your mouse icon over the movie you want to watch to reveal a drop-down arrow that’s sitting at the bottom of the video or tv show.
Next, click on “More Like This” to bring up videos and TV shows like the one you’ve just watched.
Thinking of a romantic getaway at someplace on a beach or you want to chillax at home instead. Movies are an excellent choice for starting a great day off work. Our brilliant selection is a great place to start.
Our recommendation: Don’t stop watching until you are tired.
Binge-watch all you want, after all, it’s your time off.
