Sometimes, the best way to spend the weekend is at home on your couch. The days are getting shorter and colder, making a comfy blanket, a hot cup of tea and your couch all the more appealing.

But what should you watch? With what seems like a million titles on Netflix, there's plenty to choose from, but that can also be the problem.

You could try your luck with Netflix Roulette, but I've found a list of 15 movies you probably haven't seen before and will enjoy.

A site called "A Good Movie to Watch" suggests movies you probably haven't seen, and takes ratings from IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes to find you great titles to watch that are loved by both regular viewers and critics.

Note: Most of these movies are rated R. Proceed with caution.
