Best Netflix Movies To Watch (And Skip)

There are so many great Netflix movies to watch right now, but not all of them are worth your time.

Some of Netflix’s new releases are among the best Netflix movies of the year so far.

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out which Netflix movies are worth watching and which ones you should just skip. So, if you’re looking for what to watch, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a great list of Netflix movies to watch and skip!

It’s a tough decision that can lead to sitting through stinks and missing the movies you would have actually enjoyed.

With outputs like Don’t Look Up, Fear Street, The Adam Project, and others, and it’s been a good run for new Netflix movies. We have also seen versions like The Kissing Booth 3 and He is all that it will draw a lot of viewers but probably won’t be a fan favorite for the masses.

Wondering which movies should be on your watch list and which ones are worth checking out? Let’s start the list with Look both ways.

UPDATED: October 11, 2022

Netflix Movies: Revenge

Release year: 2022

Directed by: Jennifer Kaytin Robinson

With: Camila Mendes, Maya Hawke, Austin Abrams, Rish Shah, Talia Ryder, Alisha Boe, Ava Capri, Jonathan Daviss, Paris Berelc, Maia Reficco, Sophie Turner, Sarah Michelle Gellar

There really is no doubt that Revenge will go down as one of the best Netflix movies of 2022 – if not the better. The dark teen comedy managed to strike an incredible balance between camp and nostalgia that doesn’t feel cheap or dated (the trappings that many movies get caught in). Instead, we’re left with what could become a modern teen classic with undeniable rewatch value.

Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke, two non-teenage actors, play Drea and Eleanor, a mismatched pair of high schoolers and kindred spirits who find common ground to get revenge on their enemies. Drea and Eleanor team up for revenge, but that’s a lot easier said than done. And you’ll never see the big twist coming.

Even though Revenge is set in high school but none of the teenagers are played by real teenagers, it works and adds to the general camp of the movie. Likewise, it’s just another nod to the many classic teen movies it references so well. Mendes and Hawke make the perfect duo, and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s surprise supporting role is just the icing on the cake.

If you delayed watching Revenge, this is your sign to finally add it to your watch list. And if you’ve been waiting to rewatch the movie, don’t wait another second. Revenge is by far a must-watch Netflix movie that will stand the test of time.

Verdict: WATCH
