The second day of a month means it’s a free-for-all for Netflix’s Top 10 movies list, because Netflix absorbs a ton of old films at the top of the month to refresh its coffers and give the people what they need: fresh content! That’s why 2012’s Men in Black 3 is the No. 2 movie on the list, and why the 2015 fantasy romance The Age of Adaline is No. 5. On the Netflix Top 10 TV side, things don’t change much, but it’s nice to see the sweet Korean series Extraordinary Attorney Woo return to the Top 10.

But who said that popular was the same as good? Below we list off 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. If you’re looking for more Netflix recommendations, we’ve compiled the best movies on Netflix and the best TV shows on Netflix.
