How to find the best movies to watch

Watching movies is a fantastic way to unwind after work, share a special experience with friends and loved ones, or consume artistic work, but it can often be hard to find new films.

Everyone can relate to the struggle of scrolling through streaming services for hours on end, unable to find or agree on anything to watch. 

Despite the mind-boggling array of films that you can choose from, it seems harder than ever to wade through average films to find the one gem you will revisit forever.

Therefore, it is worth having a few options at your disposal to make it easy to find the best films to watch, whether alone or with others.

Here are a few approaches you can use to help.

Use a website tracker to find the most popular streaming sites

One of the greatest breakthroughs in the modern film industry has also become one of its biggest problems for the average movie watcher – the abundance of choice.

Thanks largely to the increasing popularity of streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Plus, there have never been so many movies and shows to watch. 

If you love movies, this is an amazing prospect because there are thousands of old classics to choose from on-demand, alongside a litany of new releases being added to the platforms every month. 

However, this dizzying choice makes it different to pick one film to watch.

Everyone has different tastes, and when you are flicking through different genres, trying to choose one to dedicate two or three hours of your time to has never been trickier. 

Indeed, there is even an abundance of streaming platforms, so you will first have to choose which site to visit before you get to the films themselves.

To find the top streaming services, use a website tracker to find out which is best.

Make a list of your favorite films

If you want to find the best movies to watch, you need to know what you enjoy.

Start by making a list of your favorite films, no matter how long or short it ends up being. 

You will likely surprise yourself with the number of films that you enjoy in a particular genre or the work of a particular actor or director, which will help influence your next film choice. 

It might be that this list jogs your memory about a film that you used to enjoy but forgot about or shocks you with how similar all your choices are. Perhaps you will realize that you need to experiment more with your movie choices or that a particular streaming service has all the films you most enjoy.

When you get your favorite films down on paper, you will instantly find it easier to make the right choice.

Learn more about films as an art form

Of course, to find the best films to watch, you need to know what you are looking for. While many movies are throwaway entertainment, the very best films are elevated to an art form.

Like all forms of art, you must have a basic understanding of how a movie is constructed in order to derive the most satisfaction from it.

As a result, it might be worth finding out more about how directors, writers, and actors construct movies and convey their message, as well as common film tropes

It will add another dimension to your viewing experience and help you to make the right choice when it comes to choosing a movie to watch.
