There are three types of Netflix viewers: 1) the type who choose movies to watch based on their plot descriptions, 2) the type whose decision to watch a particular movie is solely based on the ratings and reviews that movie received, and 3) the type who rely on a balance of both methods.

No matter what type of viewer you are, it's always nice (and even helpful at times) to see what critics and audiences had to say about a movie before watching it. Rotten Tomatoes is perhaps the most trustworthy source to use for that purpose, due to its use of wide range of critics that span from regular movie-goer to film studies expert.

Check out the extensive list of movies you can watch on Netflix Canada that managed to get the 90-100% stamp of approval from Rotten Tomatoes:
