RottenTomatoes is one of the biggest sites on the internet when it comes to movie reviews from critics. its most coveted award is the Certified Fresh rating. Netflix in 2022 has so far released or will release 10 movies with the Certified Fresh rating, and we’ve listed them all below.

For those unfamiliar with RottenTomatoes, it’s a review aggregator similar to MetaCritic or IMDb. However, his score works differently from the others mentioned leading even to some criticism.

According to RottenTomatoes, here’s how a movie receives the Certified Fresh icon:

“To receive a Certified Fresh rating, a film must have a stable Tomatometer rating of 75% or higher. Movies that release widely need at least 80 reviews from Tomatometer Critics (including 5 Top Critics). Movies that release in limited release require at least 40 reviews from tomatometer reviews (including 5 top reviews). A TV show must have a Tomatometer score of 75% or higher with 20 or more reviews from Tomatometer Critics (including 5 Top Critics). If the Tomatometer score falls below 70%, the movie or TV show loses its “Certified Fresh” status. In some cases, the Certified Fresh designation may be held at the discretion of the Rotten Tomatoes editorial team.
