IMDb Top 250 Movies Available on Netflix

Note: This list will be updated periodically, so feel free to check in later for updated information.

If you watch more than five movies a year, you are probably aware of IMDb’s Top 250 list, which is undoubtedly the most famous movie list ever made. Regardless of your opinion on it, many feel it’s a fair representation of the best movies ever made because it’s composed of aggregated votes from millions of IMDb users, people like you and me.

Top 250 IMDb Movies on Netflix

The IMDb Top 250 list is a good example of the how our Netflix Switcher can be useful, because most Netflix regions have a portion of the movies in the IMDb Top 250, but if you search all the regions, the list of movies available becomes much bigger.

How does the Netflix Switcher help?

Netflix US only has 40 movies on the list and Netflix UK 20 movies, whereas you can see 72 top 250 movies on Netflix Brazil and 53 movies on Netflix Germany. Sometimes the content selection overlaps (Fargo, for one, is available in all the regions available via the Netflix Switcher). If you look at these 8 regions, 106 titles of 250 are not available on Netflix, most of which are older titles like Buster Keaton’s The General (1926).

We included a search form below, so you can enter a movie title or region, to see if it’s available. Now, let’s get to the list.
