Have you tried the (Net)Flix Roulette? Is it worth it?

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about the nEnhancer. Today, I have tried the so-called Flix Roulette, a tool that will help you find random content on Netflix based on your preferences.

We live in a world in which it is quite easy to get bored, at least if you have too much time left-over after work (or instead of work). Maybe you are a super smart student who has a lot of time besides your studies, and you love watching movies. But, what are you going to stream on Netflix tonight? That is a question we often ask ourselves, and for that reason, someone created a tool which will help you find random content on Netflix.

The Netflix Roulette

The Netflix Roulette, also known as the Flix Roulette, or the Reelgood Roulette, is a tool that will help you find random content on Netflix. In fact, if you create a profile you can tell them which streaming services you use, and then find random content in all of those (for example, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO Now, CBS All Access). When you have done all of this, visit the Netflix Roulette.

Here you can tell which kind of genre you are interested in, and then filter the quality of the movie by setting rating levels on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes.

I have used it a couple of times, and I wish there would be some more filters added to this tool. What about a filter that would deal with the release date of a movie. I might want to watch an action movie with a high score on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes, but I do not want it to be an old Godfather movie. What about creating a filter for “released in … or newer” or something like that.

The Netflix Roulette is useful after all!

I anyway like the idea of the Flix roulette, and it will for sure help people looking for a random movie or TV series to watch on Netflix find something they wouldn’t find elsehow.

The Reelgood page is very nice, so make sure to visit it. Create a user as well, and put an X next to the streaming platforms you have a valid subscription to. You can then add movies you want to see, and get a notification whenever it has been added to the platforms you use. This and other functions can be really useful!

There is only information about US Netflix on the site, meaning that you will still have to visit netflix.fromabrad.org to find information on new movies on Canadian Netflix. But, if you live in the USA, or have followed my instructions on how to access US Netflix abroad, the tool is still really helpful!
