However, and lest we forget, Netflix has its very origins in a wealth of pretty cracking award-winning movies.
With the weekend now upon us, we've rounded-up ten recent blockbusters that are absolutely worth a watch..
1) Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
Riggan Thomson is a faded Hollywood actor best known for playing the superhero "Birdman" continues his struggle to mount a Broadway adaptation of a short story by Raymond Carver.
The film won four Academy Awards. Michael Keaton was awarded a Golden Globe for Best Actor and the film was awarded a Golden Globe for Best Screenplay.

With speculation intensifying over Taryn Manning's addiction issues, the Orange Is The New Black star has decided to address the reports head-on.
According to TMZ, the actress, who plays Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett in the Netflix original, has acknowledged that a particular media outlet is planning to run a story on her, so decided to beat them at their own game by refusing to hide from the publicity.
"I am truly grateful for what some may call hitting rock bottom. Some days it sucks and some days it sucks worse," she admitted.
Taryn, who will turn 38 next month, is adamant her demons will not get the better of her, adding: "I am not ashamed of this obstacle because I have accepted that it is okay to not be okay."
Paying tribute to her co-stars on the smash-hit prison show, Taryn, who has appeared in numerous box office hits including 8 Mile and Cold Mountain, insisted her personal struggles have not had a negative effect on her professional relationships.
"I've never felt more accepted, forgiven, and supported than during this period of my life. This is not easy," she admitted.
And while the tweet was liked more than 2,000 times, some Twitter users struggled to understand Danielle's perspective on the issue.
"Have some humility. Not everyone knows who you are," wrote one Twitter user while another tweeted: "There are people who have to be offended by something so they find anything. You are one of those people."
Stunned that some individuals seemed incapable of acknowledging the possible motivation for the agents' surprise, a fan of the actress wrote: "Spoken like a tru white dude. Do u think white people get astonishment and 'lucky you' comments when flying 1º class?" (sic)
"Say man, I suggest u stop telling black folks how they should feel about certain things," wrote another. "Ur not qualified to do so." (sic)
Debate raged beneath Danielle's post with some Twitter users insisting that the actress was reading too much into the comment while others maintained that 'casual racism' shouldn't be ignored.
Big time red carpet events have been scrutinised of late for their rather boring and obvious fashion sense – but last night's Emmy Awards certainly turned the style game up a notch.
Never have we seen so many innovative, daring and risky-yet-classy choices from our favourite stars on TV.
From well established labels to never-before-mentioned designers, here's a look at our top ten looks:
This metallic dot lace number from Marc Jacobs was a brilliant choice for Kerry. Extravagant yet elegant, her look is a top player for us.
Laura looked like she was a Grecian Queen last night in this Christian Siriano number. Her black hair contrasted with the red and gold beautifully. She was certainly dressed to kill.
The pencil-thin, slick-sequined stripes combined with heavy chain detail straps was an unconventional choice for Claire, yet we love this Prada number on her so much.
This Dior combination is odd, but dreamy. The delicately embroidered, lavishly gilded top with black pencil trousers is a refreshing take for the young Hollywood star. Will Kiernan be out next style crush?
Game of Thrones actress, Sophie went for sophisticated-cool last night. With mostly all attendees wearing dresses, we love this Galvan jumpsuit with a blue velvet top.
Hugging her in all the right places, Sofia looked like an old Hollywood movie star last night. The Saint John number was the perfect combination of sexy yet classy.
Taraji P. Henson
We're obsessed with Taraji's custom Alexander Wang dress. Detailing a little transparency through the skirt and a keyhole cut-out with chain straps – it sent us to style heaven.
Uzo won an Emmy last night and to collect her award she graced the stage in a pink (and fabulous) Jonathan Cohen gown. This is definitely one for innovation and we love the grey detail across her waist. Very art deco.
Another OITNB actress wowed on the red carpet last night. Danielle shined like the sun in this Christian Siriano number. Top marks for jumping out of the safe colour zones.
Sarah wore a Zac Posen dress last night ans we're crushing on the autumn colour. She styled it perfectly with a short, choppy hair do' and matching jewellery. Brownie points for the same colour nails!
Ruby Rose became a household name overnight… Literally, overnight. One day she was an Australian TV presenter and then season 3 of OITNB aired and BAM – she was a global sensation.
But as with all rapid rises to fame, there are most certainly its drawbacks.
For the 29-year-old model, this includes having to postpone her wedding to her fiancée, Phoebe Dahl.
Ruby, also known as Justin Bieber’s doppelgänger, explained to People that when she initially signed up for the show she thought things would be a little bit more hectic but that she never anticipated the level of fame that she would reach.
“I don’t think anyone knew that my character would be taken so well. We want to find the time to plan the wedding, but now I think it’s going to be, like, next year.
“Originally it was going to be this year, but I feel like that’s a bit too ambitious,” the actress explained.
The DJ also revealed just how much she is enjoying being engaged to Roald Dahl’s granddaughter. “As it turns out we love being engaged, and I love the word ‘fiancée’.”
