It has only been a few years since Netflix’s streaming service took off exponentially. Netflix actually started off as a DVD rental service in 1997. Come 2018, Netflix has not only created a library that houses all sorts of films and TV shows but also creates original content branded as ‘Netflix Originals’ — proving how serious it is about developing content. Invading the Emmys this year with the highest number of nominations, it has now turned its eye towards the Oscars. And for sure, with the kind of content they are producing, Netflix films invading Oscars in the coming years is not a far-fetched thought.
There is just so, so much that Netflix has to offer, especially when it comes original shows and movies. While we wait for some highly anticipated stuff that Netflix has promised us, here is a look at the list of top Netflix original movies ever.
18. Kissing Booth (2018)
‘The Kissing Booth’ revolves around a girl Elle and her “BFF” Lee. Apparently, both of them were born at the same moment and have been inseparable since, as their moms were also “BFFs”. Brought up as siblings, they had many things in common, the most equally likeable of them all – dancing. Lee and Elle went through their forming years searching for the best place to dance together. Enter Lee’s elder brother Noah who Elle had a crush on since her teens. In the present day, they’re all at the high school and Lee and Elle plan to set up a kissing booth for the upcoming school’s carnival. Elle, who kisses Noah accidentally in the kissing booth, thinks of Noah as a playboy and doesn’t trust him initially, although the trust piles up eventually and they both start having their own cosy moments, without Lee knowing all the while. Elle’s guilty pleasure of lying to Lee doesn’t stay for long and she admits her mistake, only to distance herself from everyone, including Noah. Over the short span of time for which the movie has been on Netflix, it certainly has gained a cult viewership owing to many factors – the reprisal of a rising starlet who’s seemingly on a roll, the teenage-palpable storyline and the nuances of teenage romance handled aptly in the movie’s storyline.
