Netflix top 10 movies of 2024 so far — here are 3 with 90% or higher on Rotten Tomatoes (1)

Netflix's top 10 most-watched movies of the year so far is an eclectic mix. The list is based on how many views each movie has had in its first 91 days on the best streaming service, each one of them pulling in some impressive numbers.

Red Notice leads the English language list with over 230 million views, while Troll tops the non-English titles with 103 million views. But neither of these have impressed Rotten Tomatoes critics. Instead, here are three from Netflix's most-watched movies list that have the highest Rotten Tomatoes ratings.

Although none were released this year, these three best Netflix movies continue to dominate the streamer's charts, with people still tuning in to watch them. If you’re looking for our top picks (that are also Rotten Tomatoes approved), take a look at our three recommendations below.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Watch On
  • Rotten Tomatoes score: 91%
  • Age rating: PG-13
  • Length: 2 hours 19 minutes
  • Director: Rian Johnson

Much like Rian Johnson’s first whodunnit, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery features a great ensemble cast once again led by Daniel Craig’s flamboyant detective Benoit Blanc. This time, he heads to the Greek island home of billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton), a trip which is far from relaxing when one of the guests winds up dead.

Other names starring as party guests include Janelle Monáe who plays identical twins, Kathryn Hahn as a governor, Leslie Odom Jr as the head scientist for Miles's company, Dave Bautista as a men’s rights activist, and Kate Hudson as a hedonistic supermodel turned fashion designer.

Naturally, there’s a lot of clashing personalities here resulting in a tale that is as funny as it is intriguing. And the story is set to continue in Netflix's Knives Out 3 threequel.

Lucy Buglass

Senior Entertainment Writer

Lucy is a long-time movie and television lover who is an approved critic on Rotten Tomatoes. She has written several reviews in her time, starting with a small self-ran blog called Lucy Goes to Hollywood before moving onto bigger websites such as What's on TV and What to Watch, with TechRadar being her most recent venture. Her interests primarily lie within horror and thriller, loving nothing more than a chilling story that keeps her thinking moments after the credits have rolled. Many of these creepy tales can be found on the streaming services she covers regularly.

When she’s not scaring herself half to death with the various shows and movies she watches, she likes to unwind by playing video games on Easy Mode and has no shame in admitting she’s terrible at them. She also quotes The Simpsons religiously and has a Blinky the Fish tattoo, solidifying her position as a complete nerd.
