Glass Onion had a good run, but it’s no longer the No. 1 movie on Netflix. Over the weekend, the mystery hit was unseated by another mystery film, the Christian Bale-led period piece The Pale Blue Eye, in which he plays a fictional detective investigating a string of murders with the help of Edgar Allan Poe. Meanwhile, the No. 1 TV show is Ginny & Georgia, the popular young adult dramedy Taylor Swift fans hate.  

But as we all know, popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they’re actually worth watching or not. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.
