The Top 10 list of movies on Netflix for Wednesday, June 23 is the exact same as yesterday, so you know what that means: Everyone gets a free year of Netflix! Well, that's what would happen if I ran Netflix. Maybe Netflix forgot to update the list? It's so rare, especially on the movies side, for the list not to change. Oh gosh, now I'm worried. I hope everyone over there is OK! Can someone call and check on Netflix?

Netflix's Top 10 list of the most popular movies will tell you which movies everyone is watching, but which ones are actually good? We break down the entire Netflix Top 10 movie list and guide you through what to binge and what to skip. We do the same for Netflix's Top 10 TV shows, as well as Netflix's overall Top 10 list.

Based on Netflix's Top 10 from Wednesday, June 23

1. Fatherhood


For fans of: DADS | Is it good?: It's one of those classic "comedian goes serious" movies

Kevin Hart plays a recently widowed father raising his young daughter on his own. You can expect to see Hart's character struggling to do his daughter's hair, attending group meetings with new mothers, and probably wrestling with his fragile relationship to masculinity. (Yesterday's rank: 1)


2. Wish Dragon


For fans of: Aladdin, but with dragons | Is it good?: John Cho voices a dragon, so you can't hate that

The story of Aladdin gets updated to modern-day Shanghai in this animated movie about a college student (Jimmy Wong) who meets a magical dragon (John Cho) and makes a wish to reconnect with his childhood best friend (Natasha Liu Bordizzo). The plot is familiar, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. (Yesterday's rank: 2)


3. Security


For fans of: Feeling anything but secure, suspense | Is it good?: It's a decent slow burn

This Italian suspense thriller is set in a quaint seaside town where an assault sends everyone hurrying to find out how the attack could happen. A security expert investigates townspeople, and secrets are unearthed. (Yesterday's rank: 3)

What to Watch from Netflix's overall Top 10

4. Home


For fans of: The vocal stylings of Rihanna, cute aliens | Is it good?: It's a sweet movie

This is a classic buddy comedy about a young girl (voiced by Rihanna) who teams up with an alien (voiced by Jim Parsons) to try and find her mother (voiced by Jennifer Lopez). The aliens in Home definitely feel like knockoff Minions, but it's an adorable movie nonetheless. (Yesterday's rank: 4)


5. Rurouni Kenshin: The Final


For fans of: Live-action anime, people doing flips and stuff | Is it good?: Yeah, it's killer Japanese action

Based on the Japanese manga of the same name, Rurouni Kenshin: The Final is the fourth movie in the Rurouni Kenshin franchise and follows a former assassin who helps another exact revenge. It's loaded with action and the spirit of Japanese classic samurai movies. (Yesterday's rank: 5)


6. Dog Gone Trouble


For fans of: Recognizing celebrity voices, anthropomorphic animals | Is it good?: If you like talking dogs

Big Sean and Pamela Adlon provide the voices of two dogs who form an unlikely friendship when one of them is suddenly ejected from his pampered lifestyle right into the big, scary city. (Yesterday's rank: 6)

What to watch from Netflix's Top 10 TV Shows

7. The Secret Life of Pets 2


For fans of: Secret Life of Pets 1, canceling Louis C.K. | Is it good?: Yeah, it's family fun

Max the dog (voiced by Patton Oswalt in this film after Louis C.K. was booted from the franchise) gets a case of the jellies when his owner has a kid who takes up all her attention. But don't worry, they work it out in the end. (Yesterday's rank: 7)


8. The Mitchells vs. the Machines


For fans of: Recognizing celebrity voices, families saving the world | Is it good?: It's pretty cute

It's a safe bet that there's probably no other movie you've seen recently that has an internet famous dog in its cast. That honor belongs to the The Mitchells vs. the Machines, which centers around a family who find out they have to save the world while they're on a road trip. The dog in question is Doug the Pug, and his much less famous co-stars include Maya RudolphDanny McBrideAbbi JacobsonOlivia ColmanEric Andre, and Fred Armisen(Yesterday's rank: 8)

9. Silver Skates


For fans of: Classic romance, ice skating | Is it good?: It's been reviewed very highly!

If you've seen Titanic, Romeo & Juliet, or Lady & the Tramp, you know the setup: A lower-class boy and an aristocrat girl meet by chance and fall for each other while everyone else tries to keep them apart. Only this time, the setting is 19th-century Russia, and everyone's on ice skates because it's the middle of winter. (Yesterday's rank: 9)


10. Awake


For fans of: Sleepless nights, Gina Rodriguez | Is it good?: Nah

If you're in the mood for a TV show with a sci-fi premise that would definitely fit on NBC's fall schedule, but you want it condensed into a movie so you don't have to watch 19 episodes of filler, check out Awake, starring Gina Rodriguez as a woman in the middle of a strange global phenomenon that prevents people from sleeping. (Yesterday's rank: 10)
