Congratulations to all Netflix subscribers who watched Rush Hour and then immediately moved on to Rush Hour 2. The sequel has arrived on the list of Netflix's Top 10 Movies, coming in at No. 8, while the original moves up to No. 3. Rush Hour 2 is one of three new movies to make the list today; joining it are Dwayne Johnson's Walking Tall and Will Ferrell's Land of the Lost at the tail end. On the TV side of things there's very little change. Ryan Murphy's Dahmer is approaching two weeks at No. 1, the longest run at the top since Echoes

But popular doesn't necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they're actually worth watching or not. We've also added what's new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.
