Keep this page handy as we celebrate and compile a list of the Netflix movies that received the highest ratings and best reviews in 2023.
Since they began releasing material in 2015, Netflix has created more than 600 original movies. The number has increased yearly, reaching over 172 original feature films in 2022. We will use Rotten Tomatoes ratings throughout 2023 to share with you the top-rated and most highly regarded Netflix Original films that are currently available for streaming.
However, just nine movies were published on Netflix in the month of January 2023, two of which were the comedies You People with Jonah Hill and Eddie Murphy and Dog Gone with Rob Lowe. Unfortunately, the majority of them either don’t have a score generated on Rotten Tomatoes or have received negative reviews for the movie. As a result, I’ll be adding to this list on a monthly basis. Here, I’ll include the two movies that have been particularly well-received.

6. The Pale Blue Eye (2023)

2. Infiesto (2023)
If you’re looking for a typical crime thriller with an interesting plot and a comfortingly familiar framework, this film delivers. Yet, given it currently has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 44%, audiences don’t share that sentiment.

1. Noise (2023)
The film provides a chillingly accurate image of what far too many families throughout the world are forced to go through when someone they love disappears during its one hour and 45 minute running duration. It’s uncomfortable to watch, but that’s exactly why it has to be seen.
