Top 10 netflix movies

Top 10 is a new feature on the site that displays the most popular movies and episodes in real-time. Originals, reality series, sitcoms, and documentaries make up the top ten most-watched titles on Netflix right now. Popular series such as Cobra Kai and Stay Close are likely familiar to you, so their inclusion in today’s Top 10 list isn’t surprising.

1.Don’t Look up

Year: 2021
Director: Adam McKay
Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Meryl Streep
Rating: R
Runtime: 138 minutes

There are more reasons than one might have been comfortable with in the past for truly worrying about the end of the planet in 2021. While the extinction of humanity is unlikely to occur as quickly as an extinction-level threat approaching Earth, director Adam McKay’s new doomsday comedy/”timely” political satire Don’t Look Up tries to congeal populism, the pandemic, climate change, and everything else that makes us recoil against the unknown future into one immediate, planet-killing orb. In retrospect, that may seem like a better and faster way to go out, but McKay doesn’t make the road to eventual desolation easy. He creates scenarios that today seem less like Idiocracy and more like legitimate, scientific speculation on how our world would behave if we were told we only have six months to live. Businessmen and politicians would try to profit from the situation at the expense of human lives; mindless hashtags would abound on social media; half of the population would assume it was a hoax, and the ones who broke the story would be labeled as cranks…to some extent.

2.The Unforgivable

I know what unrepented sins I’ve committed to merit Netflix’s “The Unforgivable,” but you still have a chance to repent and avert the Divine punishment. This is three films in one, each of which becomes worse as it progresses. We begin with a repentance story, which is followed by a brief legal drama before falling into a revolting kidnapping and assault thriller. It’s based on a TV show that I haven’t seen, which may explain why it feels so cramped. Sandra Bullock has a reason to be in it because she is also the producer, but great veterans like Vincent D’Onofrio, W. Earl Brown, and Viola Davis have none. Davis’ scenes, in particular, are suspect.

3.The Lost Daughter

Year: 2022
Director: Maggie Gyllenhaal
Stars: Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson, Jessie Buckley, Paul Mescal, Dagmara Dominczyk, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Peter Sarsgaard, Ed Harris
Rating: R
Runtime: 124 minutes

Watch on Netflix

The skies are crystal blue, the beaches are a glistening white, and the water is warm and translucent on the beach where comparative literature researcher Leda (Olivia Colman) sits throughout The Lost Daughter. The shore, however, is filled with obnoxious, noisy people; Leda’s fruit has been afflicted with a malignant rot; her bedroom has been invaded with shrieking bugs, and a small girl’s toy has been tainted with toxic black liquid and writhing insects. This tonal tension reflects the film’s spirit: it’s a gleaming apple that’s quickly rotting from the inside out. Leda relaxes into a luxury working vacation over the course of a few days in this film. Her peace is broken, however, when she first sees Nina (Dakota Johnson), a lovely but mysterious young mother. As Nina accidentally resurfaces painful memories of Leda’s own distressing experiences as a mother, Leda becomes enamored with her. Leda’s frightening memories pervade The Lost, Daughter, from that point forward, until the apple is fully black. While the plot, which is based on Elena Ferrante’s 2006 novel of the same name, is simple, debut filmmaker Maggie Gyllenhaal, who also created the screenplay, tackles themes of internalized and externalized misogyny with dexterity and nuance.

Parents looking for an electronic babysitter this holiday season will most likely pitch “Back to the Outback,” an Australian animated film that debuted on Netflix today, as a spin-off of “Madagascar.” Billy, do you recall those adorable flicks with the wise-cracking penguins and the hypochondriac giraffe? This is much the same thing as before. And it’s basically the same thing. A group of animals at a sanctuary manages to elude their keepers once more in an attempt to return to the wild, forming an unexpected family along the way. The sanctuary in this case is in Sydney, and the destination is the Outback. Add a little of a “Finding Nemo”-style voyage and the timeless family film message about not judging a book by its cover, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
