What to see on Netflix High 10 Rankings on November 4th

The Netflix Top 10 list does not tell you how many people watch which program, but which shows most people watch. The Netflix top 10 list for Wednesday November 4th is almost the same as it was yesterday, with the top 6 titles unchanged. The newcomers are two not new films, Mile 22 at # 7 and Snowden at # 8, which removed the new film His House from the list.

But of the Netflix Top 10, which of these shows and movies are really worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix top 10 list and walk you through what to do and what to skip.

The best TV shows and movies on Netflix in November 2020

Based on Netflix’s top 10 as of Wednesday November 4th

1. The Queen’s Gambit

For fans of: Chess, drugs and character drama | It is good?: It’s one of the best shows of the year

Future superstar Anya Taylor-Joy (she was cast as Young Furiosa in the next Mad Max movie) plays Beth Harmon, a brilliant but troubled chess master in Kentucky in the 1950s, in this literary adaptation. She was an orphan who developed an incredible skill for playing in her teens, but also a debilitating addiction to pills that calmed her obsessed mind. It’s a detailed character study of brilliance and madness that is usually reserved for male characters. It comes from one of Netflix’s limited series producers, Godless’ Scott Frank. (Rank yesterday: 1)

2. Holidate

For fans of: Raw and formulaic vacation-themed rom-coms | It is good?: Not even by the standards of the genre

The title makes this seem like a Christmas rom-com, but it isn’t. It’s every vacation. Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey play single people who date each other at holiday parties to avoid awkward conversations about why they’re still single. Guess what happens. It’s slippery and retrograde crap. (Rank yesterday: 2)

3. Knock Knock

For fans of: Keanu Reeves, erotic thriller directly on video | Is it Well?: Not exactly

This 2015 erotic thriller about a married architect who offers protection to two young women with ulterior motives topped the list, partly because it stars internet hero Keanu Reeves and partly because E- R-rated Thrillers can handle people who are alone and bored at home. (Rank yesterday: 3)

4th Rogue City

For fans of: Shoot them cops who don’t obey the rules | It is good?: Ehhh, it is what it is

One of the most surprising entries in the top 10 is this French film about corrupt police officers and violent gangs in Marseille, France. If you want guns, guns, guns, and you don’t really care about story and character arcs, this is the trick. (Rank yesterday: 4)

5. Cocomelon

For fans of: Vegetable puree, pacifier | It is good?: Safe for babies

Colorful items, preschool songs, and big-headed babies make this catnip for toddlers and younger kids who have the time. (Rank yesterday: 5)

6. Over the moon

For fans of: Coco, inside out | It is good?: It’s cute

This moving animated family musical is inspired by a Chinese fairy tale about the moon goddess Chang’e. A girl, whose mother has died, builds a rocket ship to the moon to prove that the moon goddess is real. Oscar winner Glen Keane will direct and the cast includes Philippa Soo, John Cho, Margaret Cho and Ken Jeong. (Rank yesterday: 6)

7th mile 22

For fans of: Mark Wahlberg action films | Is it Well?: It is whatever

Mark Wahlberg loves making films with director Peter Berg. This is one of their five collaborations. It’s an action thriller about undercover CIA agents transporting a whistleblower through 22 miles of enemy territory. It’s kind of confusing and stupid. (Rank yesterday: n / a)

8th. Snowden

For fans of: Thriller based on real life | Is it Well?: Instead, watch the documentary Citizenfour by Edward Snowden (on Amazon)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone’s biographical drama about Snowden’s life and his government surveillance leaked classified information to journalists. It’s not a great movie, and if you really want to learn more about Snowden and the information it unleashed, the documentary Citizenfour, the footage of which is shot in Snowden, is a better bet. (Rank yesterday: n / a)

9. Great Army

For fans of: 13 reasons why | It is good?: It’s pretty average

Grand Army, adapted from her play Slut by the playwright Katie Cappiello, accompanies five young people from different social backgrounds at a high school in Brooklyn who grapple with racist and social problems, sexuality and sexual assault, and other controversial issues. (Rank yesterday: 9)

10. The haunted Bly Manor

For fans of: Horror that makes you sad | It is good?: It’s not quite as good as Hill House, but it’s still very good.

Season 2 of the moody, emotionally heavy horror anthology (the first season was The Haunting of Hill House) is loosely based on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw. If you’re not expecting a Redux from Hill House you won’t be disappointed because Bly Manor is really good, but it’s different. [TV Guide review] (Rank yesterday: 8)
