Even in the face of a lingering global pandemic, Netflix manages to churn out a ton of movies. With entries in nearly every genre — comedy, drama, horror, musical, and sci-fi, for starters — there really is something for everyone. But then there are some movies that aren’t really for anyone. Why is that? Because they’re not very good.
Netflix hit some outstanding high notes with ambitious projects such asThe Harder They Fall, tick, tick… Boom!, and The Power of the Dog, but there were also quite a few movies that missed their marks entirely.

But when examined with a critical eye, we found that these movies have some pretty noticeable flaws, even if they managed to catch some mainstream attention.
