70 Hidden Gem Movies On Netflix

We know people are burning through their Netflix queues at a cracking pace right now, bingeing the buzziest movies and series as they drop and finally getting to those things you’ve been putting on the backburner for months. To help out – and calm the stress that you could run out of things to watch (ah!) – the Rotten Tomatoes team trawled through the streaming service’s movie offerings with one mission: to find some not-so-obvious hidden gems to help keep your watchlist topped up.

How did we define “hidden gems”? A little broadly, we’ll admit. The collection below is made up of movies with impressive Tomatometer scores that have gone criminally under-seen (Slow WestI Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore.Under the Shadow); movies that made a splash when they debuted but which you may have forgotten since (1922My Life As A ZucchiniObvious Child); under-appreciated gems – according to the RT staff (Good BurgerKingpingThe Foreigner); and some bigger movies you may be surprised to see are available on Netflix (The Adventures of TintinHot Rod). And we threw in a few surprise nostalgic favorites, too. Yes, even some Rotten ones.

We broke out the selections into five categories to help you find what you’re specifically looking for: Action and Adventure, Horror and Suspense, Drama, Comedy, and Kids and Family. If you’re after even more Netflix movie suggestions, check out our guides to the 250 Best Movies on Netflix, the Best Comedies on Netflix, the Best Romantic-Comedies on Netflix, and the Best Horror Movies on Netflix.
