As November wraps up over the next few days, it's really beginning to dawn on the world that 2019 is officially coming to a close. Like with every other year, you'll begin to reflect on things that have happened over the past few months not only in your life but in the world around you. Things like major celebrity scandals, the best Netflix original movies, the most iconic pop culture moments — the list really goes on and on.

Not only is 2019 the end of a year, but it's the end of a decade, which is even more terrifying to think about. So much has changed in the world over the last 10 years from politics to the evolution of streaming services. It's a lot to process, but it's incredible to see how much progress we've made.

Of course, there's still some time left before 2020 hits and plenty could happen between now and then, so we figured we'd start our reflecting on the year that's gone by with something lighthearted and fun. Since the service has become such an impressive streaming giant lately, here's a list of some of the highest-rated Netflix original movies this year has brought us.

Dolemite Is My Name

Rating: 97% on Rotten Tomatoes

If you like movies based on a true story Dolemite Is My Name is the one for you. The film tells the story of Ruby Ray Moore (played by Eddie Murphy), a jack of all trades who took on the role of a pimp named Dolemite back in the 1970s.

Always Be My Maybe

Rating: 90% on Rotten Tomatoes

At times romantic comedies can be unbearably cheesy, but Always Be My Maybe will keep you swooning and laughing endlessly. Maybe it's the all-star cast (which includes Keanu Reeves), or maybe it's the hilarious storyline — either way, it's definitely worth a watch.


Rating: 89% on Rotten Tomatoes

Of all the holiday movies that Netflix has released so far this year Klaus is being called one of the best. The adorable animated film tells the story of Jesper, an awful postman who teams up with Klaus to not only create a successful post office in an isolated community but also Christmas as we know it today.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Rating: 90% on Rotten Tomatoes

Since the iconic series that was Breaking Bad came to an end, viewers have been wondering about the fate of Jesse Pinkman. After years of waiting, El Camino finally addressed the convict's life, and the movie was everything fans could've hoped for.

Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

Rating: 91% on Rotten Tomatoes

It feels as though it's been forever since the notorious Fyre Festival took over the Bahamas, and really, we haven't heard much about it since Billy McFarland was arrested. Let us not forget though, that Fyre was easily one of the best documentaries released by Netflix in 2019.

Tell Me Who I Am

Rating: 96% on Rotten Tomatoes

If you're the kind of person who enjoys content with some shock value to it, we highly recommend you watch Tell Me Who I Am. The documentary came to Netflix back in October and has left viewers totally shaken to their core.
