25 Netflix Original Movies Ranked From Meh to Why Aren’t You Watching It Right Now?

We've rounded up the best entertainment options in movies theaters, to rent or stream.

If you're wondering what to watch this weekend, TooFab has you covered. Whether you're looking for a Netflix and chill night, or a night out at the movie theater, there is something for everyone.

In the cinema department, we recommend to skip Fede Alvarez's "The Girl in the Spider's Web." We love you Claire Foy, but David Fincher's "Dragon Tattoo" with Rooney Mara was better and this addition in the franchise seems unnecessary.

Instead, go see Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carell in "Beautiful Boy," the true story of a father's journey through his son's methamphetamine addiction. Warning, it's heavy subject matter guaranteed to give you all the feels, so pocket tissues are highly recommended.

For fans of gritty genre movies, go see "Overlord." Part WWII drama and part zombie thriller, the J.J. Abrams-produced film is the perfect balance of horror and history.

If you want to stay at home in your sweatpants (we won't judge), the world is at your fingertips. "Spice World" is available to rent on iTunes in wake of the Spice Girls announcing a huge reunion tour -- tickets on sale now. Go ahead, spice up your life for $3.99. You know you want to.

"The Ballad of Buster Struggs," the latest from the Coen Brothers, is now streaming on Netflix. The dramedy set in 19th-century post-Civil War era during the settling of the Old West is being praised by critics. Also on Netflix is "Outlaw King" featuring a full-frontal Chris Pine. Unlike "Buster Struggs" the reviews aren't the best, but "Outlaw King" may scratch your "Game of Thrones" itch until we get a trailer. Plus, seeing a naked Pine isn't a bad way to spend your Sunday.

If you are looking for a feel-good film, "Crazy Rich Asians," a.k.a. the biggest romantic comedy of the year, is now available to rent on video on demand.

Lastly, if you need your late-night fix on the weekend, we recommend checking out "Daily Show" alum Hasan Minaj's new show "Patriot Act." It's hilarious, it's informative and it has the stage aesthetic like a Drake concert.

Grab some popcorn and check out our full list:

"Beautiful Boy" (Theaters)

The Amazon Studios drama hit select theaters last month, but now it's available nationwide. "Beautiful Boy," based on both memoirs by David and Nic Sheff, follows a father's struggle through his son's methamphetamine addiction. In the heartbreaking drama, Carell and Chalamet play David and Nic, respectively, in powerful performances that have both actors getting awards season buzz. The film exemplifies the frustrating and gut-wrenching experience of addiction, relapse and recovery.

"Beautiful Boy" also stars Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan and Kaitlyn Dever.

"Spice World" (iTunes)

If you're feeling nostalgic, this 1997 classic is available on iTunes. Watching the movie is also a great way to celebrate the Spice Girls (without Victoria Beckham a.k.a Posh Spice) reuniting on tour. If you didn't already know, here's another reminder: tickets are on sale now!

Grab on to your knickers, because "Spice World" is a blast. The British musical comedy follows Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Mel B (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) and Victoria Addams (Posh Spice) in a series of fictional events that lead up to a major concert.

We promise the movie will give you what you want, what you really, really want.

"Outlaw King" (Netflix)

"Outlaw King," a.k.a The Movie That Shows Chris Pine's Penis, hit Netflix Friday. Since we were devastated that "Wonder Woman" covered up Pine's jewels, we're grateful for this viewing experience, even if his package is a little too blurry.

The action-adventure movie tells the true story of Scottish "Outlaw King" Robert The Bruce, who utilized cunning tactics to defeat the great English army. The Netflix original may not have been praised by critics, but it wasn't ripped apart by them either.

It's been over a year since a new episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones" aired, so we're in desperate need of some medieval sword-fighting and hunky, brooding men saving kingdoms. We're willing to roll the dice on this one.

"Crazy Rich Asians" (VOD)

The highest-grossing romantic comedy of the year is now on demand after shattering cultural and box office barriers. The film, which is based on the book of the same name, follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) who goes with her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) to visit his family in Singapore. The good news is his family is super wealthy, the bad news is that they don't approve of her.

The ensemble cast is great, but Awkwafina steals the show as Rachel's BFF Peik Lin.

If you didn't manage to see the film in theaters this summer, we highly encourage you watch it this weekend. With all the terrible things going on in the world, it's nice to escape. If you don't have VOD, the movie comes out on DVD and Digital HD at the end of the month.

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" (Netflix)

"The Ballad of Buster Struggs" is by far the most unique option on this list. The Netflix movie is an anthology of six stories, each dealing with different aspects of living in in the American West in the 19th-century post-Civil War era.

"Struggs," which comes from Academy Award winning directors of "No Country for Old Men" and "True Grit," is being praised by critics. The latest Coen brother's project boasts an all-star cast including Liam Neeson, James Franco and Zoe Kazan.

"Overlord" (Theaters)

If you're in the mood for a gory horror flick, but also love seeing Nazis get clobbered, "Overlord" gives you both. The film, which is directed by Julius Avery, follows the story of two American soldiers during World War II who find themselves in the middle of a Nazi experiment full of zombies.

"Overlord" is full of blood, blood and more blood, so we don't recommend this film for those who are squeamish. If you can handle the horror, the film is a delightful thrill that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Also, the movie is certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and for a supernatural thriller, that's a big deal.

"Patriot Act with Hasan Minaj" (Netflix)

"Patriot Act" is like no late-night show you've seen before. Minaj, who is an alum of Trevor Noah's "The Daily Show," brings his comedic flair and insight to important topics like affirmative action and how Amazon rules the world. With new episodes dropping every Sunday, "Patriot Act with Hasan Minaj" isn't all about Donald Trump network late-night shows. Instead, it focuses on the bigger picture. Minaj won't even say Trump's name and refers to POTUS as "DJT" or "45." The show is quite the treat.
