There are simply too many movies streaming online. It’s almost impossible to know which are good or bad by the short summaries these services provide, and scrolling endlessly through the available titles separated by genre can frustrate the movie fan who just wants to find something good to watch for the evening.
To spare the film fan from wasting hours researching the titles that appear on Netflix to see if they are worth the time, here are 10 of the best movies from the 2010s that are currently available on Netflix right now.
1. The Founder (2016)
Ray Kroc wasn’t doing so well as a traveling milkshake mixer salesman. In fact, he wasn’t doing so well in his career, having tried a number of schemes to get rich. Then in 1954, he traveled across the country to a single hamburger stand that was ordering an inordinate amount of mixers, and in the process found his dream business in the McDonald brothers’ fast food operation. The rest is history, but the story of how Kroc managed to swindle two hard-working, honest brothers for their idea, business model, and very name may just make your next meal at McDonald’s taste a little sour.
Michael Keaton plays the ambitious and more than a little ruthless Ray Kroc with steely resolve as he claws his way to the top to establish the largest fast-food chain in the world and make hundreds of millions of dollars in the process, burning nearly everyone involved in the process. This slick biographical film keeps the story moving at a fast clip and is an entertaining–and revealing–look at how ruthlessness capitalistic ambition can change someone for the worse, all while revolutionizing the food industry.
2. Cloud Atlas (2012)
