Why are the best Netflix movies so bad?

Netflix’s top 10 list hasn’t been around that long, but it’s already a staple part of the streamer experience. Because seeing what other people seem to be enjoying is a great way to filter the magnitudes of the content on offer. The problem is that a lot of the stuff that shows up is, to put it bluntly, crap.

The top 10 movies list is particularly prone to featuring some absolutely awful movies. Some flopped at the box office, some were hated by critics and audiences, and the rare few are a combination of all three. And yet, they don’t just make it to Netflix’s Top 10, they tend to stick around for a few days.
