The Best Worst Movies to Stream & Record Now

Some movies are amazingly brilliant, and some are so amazingly bad that it’s a wonder how they were ever conceptualized. Today, we’d like to honor some of those horrible, yet somehow captivating, films available online.

You can stream all of the terrible/awesome movies your heart can handle straight from your browser, then use Replay Video Capture to keep them forever. To get started, just fire up the software, start playing your top picks on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime, and start recording.

Take a look at some of our favorite worst movies to stream and save on Netflix right now:

1. Gigli

If you’ve ever wanted to see J. Lo pretend to be a “fatally gorgeous” gangster, please record and save this movie from Netflix. Ben Affleck (Gigli) also stars in this quintessentially awful/amazing movie from the early 2000’s, in which a kidnapping goes terribly awry. Sloppy, bizarre and yet somehow amazing.

2. Killer Mermaid

Somewhat creepy and terribly written, this flick is perfect for you horror lovers – if you want to laugh rather than being scared. The general plot line involves two American women on a vacation in the Mediterranean, where they stumble upon the lair of (you guessed it) a killer mermaid. This film is available to stream on Netflix, and definitely worth it for your next movie night.

3. Left Behind

Nicolas Cage is reason enough to watch and save this Armageddon based masterpiece from Netflix. In Left Behind, a handful of survivors are “left behind” after millions vanish; the world is plunged into chaos. And then there was Nic Cage.

4. John Dies at the End

Comedy meets terror in this dark flick on Netflix. A new drug, referred to as Soy Sauce, promises an out-of-body experience like no other. People are scrambling for it, but there are (obviously) consequences. We won’t give you any other spoilers — this movie is perfect for livening up a boring evening.

5. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

This movie is actually pretty good if you’re into martial arts flicks, though still laughable compared to the original. Jason Scott Lee stars as a warlord hell-bent on stealing a sword from the good guys (and martial arts masters). Get a hold of this one on Netflix before your next kung fu binge!

How to Stream Media Anywhere with a Secure VPN

Fans around the world rejoiced when Netflix announced it would expand service to 130 additional countries, making the streaming video giant available in almost every country (except for China).

Their bubble was soon after burst, however, when they discovered Netflix wouldn’t be including the full catalog in those countries. Content licenses are mainly to blame for the gap between countries’ catalogs, as studios and production companies stipulate where their content can be streamed. However, customers can take matters into their own hand — even before the global rollout, Netflix subscribers living abroad used VPNs (virtual private networks) to evade the geographic restrictions on streaming services like Netflix.

Why Virtual Private Networks?

VPN providers supply the software and servers needed to route an Internet connection through a proxy location, making it appear to Netflix as though the user is somewhere else. ExpressVPN is one such provider with hundreds of servers scattered across 78 countries. It offers apps, media consoles and routers with every subscription, and each server is optimized for web streaming for unlimited bandwidth.

An Imminent Ban on VPNs?

Shortly after its global roll-out, the company announced it would take steps to stop VPN users. While we’ve yet to see exactly what Netflix will do, it’s certain to be an uphill battle; the company can’t tell the difference between someone connecting from a VPN and someone connecting directly without knowing each specific VPN server’s IP address.

For Netflix, blocking VPNs will be a reluctant necessity to appease content publishers. Blocking VPN servers one by one is likely to result in a costly game of cat and mouse – Hulu attempted a similar ban in 2014 and gave up in defeat after less than a year.

Because Netflix actually gains from letting VPNs slip through the cracks, critics speculate if and when it will throw in the towel on such a profitless endeavor.

More Benefits than Just Netflix

Aside from unblocking Netflix, VPNs give users a slew of added security and other features. All traffic is encrypted and anonymous, so ISPs and hackers can’t monitor user activity. VPNs can also speed up streaming services in places that throttle bandwidth, because censors can’t identify the traffic; location restrictions on Spotify, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, and more can all be easily accessed with a VPN.

ExpressVPN goes the extra mile when it comes to user privacy by never logging or monitoring user activity. On top of that, the company is based in the British Virgin Islands, beyond the legal jurisdiction of the US, UK, and EU. The right VPN provider can significantly boost a user’s privacy protection. If you value your privacy, or even if you just want to unblock geo-restricted content, you need a VPN.
