Starting with the release of Beasts of No Nation in 2015, Netflix Original Movies have been coming on in full force. It seems like there’s no lack of them today with tons more on the way. And it makes sense. With Netflix’s subscriber base of 125 million people, they can afford to produce their own movies. It’s also smart to get out from under the thumb of other production studios. However, this creates a problem. Which ones should we see and which should we forget? Well, we’re here to help you out.
