Netflix’s Top 10 Original Films 

There are plenty of TV shows to binge-watch on Netflix, but these Originals should be at the top of the list if you want the best Netflix movies.

Table of Contents

Netflix invests billions in original content. Yes, billions, as in billions of dollars. It was projected to spend $15 billion on original content this year alone, Which is also higher than many countries’ gross domestic product.

Netflix produces a lot of content, but it also acquires the rights to a lot of films. Netflix would be flooded with hours and hours of pricey content as a result of this plan. People whine as their stuff leaves the service, which is humorous. Originals, on the other hand? They are more likely to stick around. And if there are fewer movies on Netflix than TV shows, there are already so many choices that it is difficult for Netflix to sell them all successfully. The only word of mouth would be effective.

Here’s where we can help. Here are our picks for the top ten Netflix movies as of this date. This is not a list of films for geeks; it is a different category. This is a showcase of absolute quality, as close to Oscar-caliber as Netflix Originals can come. If your pick is not on the list, launch a debate in the comments section. I am confident that I can count on you.

Always Be My Maybe

Always Be My Maybe was written by Ali Wong, a prodigious stand-up comedian (check out her Netflix specials for proof), with Fresh Off the Boat star Randall Park and Michael Golamco she is known since the 1990s. In the film, she and Park play childhood friends who reunite as adults after a tragic teen love affair. It hits all of the standard romantic comedy beats but adds something extra: genuine laughs, from how the characters interact to the ultimate cameo of the year 2019. (SPOILER ALERT: Keanu!)

Beasts of No Nation

First They Killed My Father and Beasts of No Nation, all from Netflix, are winners about a terrible subject: child soldiers. This one—the first Netflix’s major original film to receive widespread praise be the most terrifying. Idris Elba plays the commandant who kidnaps Agu (Abraham Attah) from his kin. This is an essential and challenging watch.

Bird Box

Bird Box: Isn’t it great that a thriller can be a big hit, a true scare-fest, and a well-acted quality film all at the same time? Sandra Bullock leads an ensemble cast in this post-apocalyptic series that travels back to depict the apocalypse as it occurs in real-time. It is not a plausible end-of-the-world scenario, but it is no more ridiculous than a zombie tale. The conceit that people must never get their eyes open when outside (and that birds in a box will alert them to danger) or risk killing themselves contributes to several awkward, Bullock and her co-stars, including John Malkovich, face harrowing blindfolded scenes. For motives that make perfect sense, she can refer to two young children as Boy and Girl.

The Fundamentals of Caring

Paul “Ant-Man” Rudd in a coming-of-age road trip movie? Of course, you would like to see it. Rudd plays the caretaker of a cynical, caustic boy who uses a wheelchair (Red Oaks’ Craig Roberts) on a road trip to visit the boy’s father and much more in lle The Fundamentals of Caring.

I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore.

Melanie Lynskey, who has been waiting for a leading role for a long time, stars in this crime thriller about a woman who has reached the end of her tether. Elijah “Frodo” Woods, a martial artist, is her next-door friend.

Marriage Story

Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson star as a couple in the final phases of their marriage in Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Tale, supported by a marriage counselor played by Laura Dern. It is a pair of spectacular works that remind you that these two are not only Kylo Ren and the Black Widow but serious actors. The film is currently on the American Film Institute’s top ten list for 2019, and it is up for a slew of awards, including Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe nominations, to name a few.

Mudbound

Mudbound is based on a novel by Hillary Jordan about two WWII veterans, one black and one white, who return home to the land where they grew up. It was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Supporting Actress (Mary J. Blige), as well as Best Original Song (“Mighty River,” sung by Blige). Men struggle with their problems, families deal with poverty, and everyone deals with bigotry before it bursts.

Okja

An action-adventure fantasy with a desire to make the world a happier place is one of the best Netflix Original films. Okja is a sci-fi twist on animal activism and science ethics and is Joon-Ho Bong’s follow-up to the legendary Snowpiercer. Jake Gyllenhaal’s job as a TV zoologist is epically weird, and having Tilda Swinton as your villain never hurts. The real star is Okja, a CGI “super-pig” creation that can make you reconsider your habits after seeing it.

Tallulah

Tallulah (Ellen Page) attempts to extort money from her ex-mother’s boyfriend while living out of her van. She comes across a child while stealing food from a hotel and, uh, kidnaps it. This thriller, written and directed by Sian Heder, an Orange Is the New Black writer who once had to babysit for guests at a high class Beverly Hills hotel, is not exactly a feel-good hit. Still, Page and the always-amazing Allison Janney slap some humor into it. Netflix snapped this one up before it had had a chance to screen at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Roma

Netflix has now entered the world of high-end awards with Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma. The semi-autobiographical black-and-white film about life in early 1970s Mexico City was written, directed, shot, produced, and co-edited. Allowing such a talented director—known for films ranging from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to Gravity—to tell his life story resulted in a nominated film for ten Academy Awards. It was the first Mexican film to win Best Foreign Language Film with three nominations.
