Rotten Tomatoes recently put together a truly epic list of films for FandangoNOW they’re calling ‘200 Essential Movies to Watch Now’ so get ready to get your binge on this weekend.

The 200 films, hand-picked by Rotten Tomatoes editors from their “Certified Fresh” titles (films which have scored at least 75% on the Tomatometer), range from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) to Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) to Jordan Peele’s Get Out (2017).

“We are obsessed with movies so a lot of love went into creating this list,” said Rotten Tomatoes Editor Alex Vo. “It was important to us to find best-in-category films covering a wide range of genres, diversity in casts and subject matter, including coming of age stories. Above all, we wanted this list to present a fun challenge where people can share the Rotten Tomatoes ‘200 Essentials’ list with others, check off which classics they’ve seen, and discover great new movies with friends and family.”
