  • Netflix’s original movies range from ones that have won Oscars to ones with a 0% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes.
  • We turned to Rotten Tomatoes to rank Netflix’s notable original movies from best to worst, according to critic reviews.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

With the likes of “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story,” Netflix is entering the Oscar race with a a handful of potential contenders this year. 

But the streaming giant is still committed to putting out a bevy of original movies outside of the awards arena. For instance, the thriller “Bird Box,” starring Sandra Bullock, is the company’s most watched movie ever (according to Netflix). Adam Sandler’s “Murder Mystery” isn’t far behind.

Netflix has a ton of original movies, but to figure out which are actually worth watching, we turned to the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to rank each release by its composite critical reception. We excluded documentaries and any film that didn’t have enough reviews to receive a designation of “Rotten” or “Fresh,” and we used audience scores to break ties. A few of these are in theaters and haven’t yet hit the streaming service.
