Admittedly, I have a hard time paying attention to movies. I'll often put Netflix on as background noise while I'm working and not watch the movie on the screen at all. After the movie finishes, I couldn't even tell you what the plot was about or the main characters' name.

In order to capture my attention, a movie's plot needs to be seriously thrilling. Something about thriller movies never fails to keep me on the edge of my seat and constantly wondering what's happening next. If you're the type who also requires an intersting plot, here are some amazing recommendations worth watching on Netflix Canada:
