I'm not the biggest film person, but I do watch a lot of TV and some movies on Netflix. In my reading life, I read women almost exclusively, but I assumed similarly limiting my movie consumption would be all but impossible. It turns out, per this blog post by Cinema_Fanatic Marya Gates, it's possible. Gates watched over 300 movies in 2015. With Marya's permission, I've copied her list, alphabetized it and bolded the films you can stream on Netflix (as of 1/2/16).
