The 10 most highly-rated Netflix Originals movies of 2022

Rotten Tomatoes has been a reliable way to get a quick review score since time immemorial. Many film lovers check the tally on the Tomatometer to save time from indulging in trashy flicks and watch films they would genuinely enjoy instead. This is particularly important when it comes to Netflix.

Netflix has been aggressively producing content despite its financial losses during the first few quarters in 2022. From films and documentaries to shows and reality TV, the streamer has tasted great success in last year’s Oscar season due to the various nominations across the categories.

In 2021, Netflix received great acclaim. From Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s tick, tick…boom!, last year was a great success for Netflix.

In 2022, the streamer produced some amazing films, including the sequel to Rian Johnson’s whodunit murder mystery, Knives Out, titled Glass Onion, starring Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Ethan Hawke and others. Others also include Jonah Hill’s Stutz, Robert Downey Jr.’s Sr. and The Good Nurse, starring Eddie Redmayne and Jessica Chasten.

While there have been quite a few misses this year, the streamer has managed to produce some great content which have received appreciation on Rotten Tomatoes.
