What are the top movies and TV shows that are banned from Netflix?

Netflix has long been considered a top streaming choice for all sorts of movies and TV shows. Since it took over the world of subscription-based entertainment, one can simply say that it has everything you need to engage in any content that you may think of. It features all sorts of movies from every genre and every country imaginable. When you think of original content and a stacked catalog, Netflix will certainly be on top of the list. While certain movies may go over the board in terms of different ethical standards, Netflix, most of the time, still maintains its autonomy and liberality in terms of managing its titles. After all, who among us does like censorship?

Apparently, cinemas are not the only ones targeted by selective screenings. Over recent years, Netflix has produced and showcased some of the most outrageous entertainment content. Although as rational beings, we are all entitled to judge what is good or bad or distinguish right from wrong. However, some institutions from different countries have made efforts to ban some movies and TV shows from being available on Netflix, in their respective territories, at least. Culture and customs vary from place to place and respecting certain groups of people is certainly a priority for everyone. One can argue how great a movie or TV series is, but if it doesn't pass a certain countries moral standards, then it could simply be cut from Netflix's roster of titles. In this list, you will find some of the top movies and TV shows that were banned from Netflix, in one country at least. Whether it was censored due to violence, contrasting religious opinions, or simply diplomatic issues, you can be the judge. So dive into the list and enjoy these titles.

    "Yep Singapore has some of the strangest prohibitions in their country. So this banning from Netflix in their country seems not surprising at all. But, this is one of the most realistic depictions of Christ in movies ever!"
