From the start, Netflix’s goal was to become a standalone studio. In its early years—after Blockbuster turned down multiple opportunities to buy the company, one of the more spectacular self-owns of the internet age—Netflix was a DVD-by-mail rental service. At that time, its selection was impressive, and DVDs would usually arrive within a day or two. It was pretty cool.
Now that it’s a $176 billion streaming behemoth, however, most of Netflix’s resources are being channeled into producing original content. As a result, less money is available to build up a catalog of repertory titles. And that makes putting together a list like this challenging, since I haven’t seen any of the original movies Netflix has coming up on any given month, and therefore can’t say with confidence which are the “best” among them.
But I work with what I am given, so here are 10 movies coming to Netflix in March 2022.
