AubreyPlaza, Emily the criminal

Vertical roadside entertainment/attractions

Aubrey Plaza is killing it (perhaps literally? We’ll have to wait and see) right now in Season 2 of The White Lotusbut she also starred in a smart thriller called Emily the criminal earlier this year. It premiered yesterday on Netflix and it’s great to see it rocketing straight to number 3 on the top 10 movies list. Over on the TV list, the only new addition today is the just-released fourth season of the silly and addictive reality dating show Too hot to touch.

But as we all know, popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give a brief assessment of whether they are really worth watching or not. We also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what’s on tomorrow’s top 10 list.

New Netflix shows and movies today

  • Harry & Megan: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle speak frankly about their lives in this documentary (well, as frankly as one might expect from two former royals).
  • The Elephant Whisperers: A heartwarming documentary about a couple in India who take care of a baby elephant.
