A lot of people think “older” movies are just plain boring.
I couldn’t disagree more. Especially now that some movies from the 1980s are now considered “classics.” Man, I’m getting old…but I guess those flicks are 30-something-years old so when I thought movies from the 1950s and 1960s were classics when I was growing up, the previous generation probably thought I was nuts.
ANYWAY, the point is that you should use these codes from Netflix to watch different classics. And they’re even broken down into helpful categories.
To access each of these individual categories, sign into Netflix and replace the “xxx” in this web address (www.netflix.com/browse/genre/xxx) with the corresponding code number below OR just click directly on the links we provided.
