How to use a VPN to watch ‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Forrest Gump,’ ‘The Shining’ and more on Netflix

This far into the pandemic, we’re all running out of things to watch. You’ve scoured your DVDs, plowed through your “must-watch list” and now what?

You can unlock thousands of new movies and TV shows, just with the click of a button. All you need is a VPN and a Netflix account.

We’ll show you how to do it, and we’ve got a list of some of the best movies you can watch right now.

Why you need a VPN to unlock content

If you subscribe to Netflix or any other streaming service, you know how often new titles are added and removed. An old favorite you’ve seen in your Netflix or Hulu recommendations can disappear, and then you’re left having to pony up to rent or buy the movie or skip it altogether.

But sometimes your favorites are available to subscribers of the same service who live in another country. With a VPN, you can essentially trick your streaming service of choice into believing you’re somewhere else in the world.

We’ll walk you through how to do this with ExpressVPN, a sponsor of Kim’s national radio show. ExpressVPN is fast and reliable, and connecting is simple. You don’t just have to take our word for it. Try it yourself for 30 days and if you aren’t happy, you’ll get your money back. Use this link to save money and get three months free!

Wait, what movies are we talking about?

Good question. Now, we’d never tell you to do this if it was a waste of time. There really are some great movies on this list. Note: As with Netflix in the U.S., these titles can change. Keep reading for a site you can use to see where a specific title is streaming (and in what country).
