Daisy Edgar-Jones, Where the Crawdads Sing

CTMG

Where the Crawdads Sing was a big hit in movie theaters this summer, which means it’s now also a big hit on Netflix. The adaptation of Delia Owens’ bestselling mystery novel is No. 1 on Netflix’s top 10 movie list on Monday, Nov. 14. The movie is produced by Reese Witherspoon, who as a producer is mostly known for TV adaptations of popular novels that would have been movies before the streaming explosion. Where the Crawdads Sing is a movie that feels like one of those Hulu limited series that are supposed to feel like movies. Welcome to 2022. The Crown is No. 1 on the TV chart. 

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.
