Love it or hate it, RottenTomatoes is one of the most important measurements of a series or movie. If a title meets certain criteria, they’re granted the coveted Certified Fresh rating. How many of Netflix’s 600+ Netflix Originals released in 2023 have gotten that rating? It turns out somewhere around 5% have the Certified Fresh rating with around 15% getting a score of 90% or above but that doesn’t tell the full story.

As a reminder, to get Certified Fresh on RT, you need: “A steady rating score of 75% or higher. At least five reviews from Top Critics. At least 80 reviews for films in wide release. At least 40 reviews for films in limited release.”

While we’ve listed all of the Certified Fresh Netflix Original releases of 2023 below, there are a bunch of flaws with the website, and indeed when then using those numbers to compare against the entire release schedule of 2023.

There are a few reasons why RT isn’t the best for looking at the entire Netflix Original library. Firstly, so many Netflix Original movies and series don’t even have a score from critics. This is down to only a handful or zero critics submitting reviews. This is at the fault of the critics themselves who have to prioritize which titles will get more traffic and Netflix for not granting screeners to their international titles.

Then, of course, RottenTomatoes itself has a slew of its own problems that have been under increasing criticism in recent months and years. Vulture did a particularly good expose just a few months back summarizing some of the problems with the system that so many rely on.
