Some of the best Netflix movies and documentaries are rated 100 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, the world’s most reputed ratings platform for films and TV shows.

Rotten Tomatoes and Netflix can be rightly called two giants in the world of entertainment, though both serve entirely different purposes. While the former is the go-to database for those who wish to read reviews of TV shows and movies before they watch them, the latter is the go-to streaming platform to watch them.

Rotten Tomatoes serves as a critical barometer for Netflix, offering a snapshot of industry reception to its originals or any other content available on the streaming platform. The score on Rotten Tomatoes is known as “Tomatometer;” the higher the score, the more popular the content is with reviewers. When highly rated content is featured on Netflix or any other streaming platform, it helps boost viewership and, eventually, subscribers.

For instance, two flagship titles of Netflix that have boosted its brand image, Stranger Things and The Crown, have 92 percent and 81 percent scores on Tomatometer, respectively. In this light, fictional or documentary works, whether shows or films, with a 100 per cent score contribute immensely to the brand reputation of the streaming giant.

It must, however, be noted that Netflix may have a particular content on its platform, but it may not be available for viewing in all the countries where the streaming platform has its service. It is also noteworthy that there are more documentaries than movies rated 100 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes that are available on Netflix, at least in India’s case.

Nevertheless, a list that presents all the content rated 100 percent is indeed worth knowing about.
