Movies That Are Not Usually Recommended

Reddit is where a lot of people go to get movie recommendations. Recently someone posted in a Netflix subreddit, “{Request} Best Netflix movie that you have NOT seen recommended on this subreddit.”

They continued, “This sub is great but I often see the same movies being floated around. Give us some films y’all love but do not see many people talking about!”

The answers were so niche I only have heard of one and never watched any of them but I certainly have more movies to check out on my next night in!

How many have you seen?

The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir

One person wrote, “I only see this recommended once, 7 years ago, so I’ll say The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir. If you’re a musician, even if you’re not a fan of the Dead, you’ll find parts of this really interesting. I found how he crafted rhythm parts that filled in spaces in the music enthralling.”

One person answered, “Spectral. I never see it mentioned here, but I thought it was so good.”

Others added, “Loved it! One of the better sci-fi movies Netflix has made,” and “Low key LOVE this movie so much.”

Gerald’s Game

One person wrote, “Gerald’s Game is really good. You have to be into that type of storytelling, though. ”

Another responded later, “Just went in blindly to Gerald’s Game after your recommendation. Holy smokes, I had no idea what to expect but that was pretty wild. The last half hour especially. Surprised I hadn’t ever heard of this movie, definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a trip.”

“Calibre. Watched it a few years ago and it blew me away,” someone responded.

Someone else said, “Calibre is one of those movies that when it ends and everything is quiet again you go “holy…

The Perfection

“Not sure how often it is recommended but The Perfection doesn’t get near enough love. Wonderful horror movie and the less you know going in the better it is,” someone wrote.

Another added, “This movie is so wild, I had no idea what to expect and I loved every minute of it. Always keeps you guessing.”

Fear Street

One person recommended Fear Street. Another said, “Yes!!! A masterclass in slasher flicks with the right amount of campy.”

This movie is a trilogy, so there is plenty to watch!

“I love this movie! Family and friends have literally told me to stop recommending it to them. Best new Christmas movie in a while,” raved one commenter.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things

Someone said, “I’m Thinking of Ending Things. Kaufman’s best, IMO.” Another added, “That movie was such a trip. I loved it but I have no way of explaining to someone why I did other than the overall uneasy vibe.”

The King

“Nice cinematography, great music, good actors, and a good story,” wrote one person. “Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape.’

The Lost Daughter


One person wrote, “It’s a psychological thriller starring Olivia Coleman, about a woman who becomes obsessed with a mother and her daughter while on vacation in Italy. Very unique story.”

The Adam Project

Someone commented, ” I haven’t seen this mentioned as much as I expected, given the push it got on release. It feels like an 80s movie to me, and it’s become a comfort watch because it’s amusing and not too demanding.”

Happy as Lazaro

“There was something so unique, so beautiful about this film that I’m not quite sure how to express it. It’s like a slice of life movie…until it isn’t. In general, Netflix’s Italian films have been quite good,” someone wrote.

What Happened, Miss Simone?

“I’ve been familiar with Nina Simone’s work and some of her personal history, but this connected a lot of dots,” someone wrote.
