Netflix just can't seem to get it right.. The quality of their movies and series seem to be all over the place. I just recently watched their new movie 'The Last Thing He Wanted'. I just don't know how they managed to get Ben Affleck, Anne Hathaway and Willem Dafoe all in the same movie and mess it up so badly.. I know that these movies aren't specifically written/directed by Netflix, though they do play a huge hand in the project and can absolutely pull the plug and/or change things up if they see fit. They could have fixed this. I guess you could chalk it up to me simply not being a fan of the movie, but with a rotten tomatoes score of 7% and 17%(audience) I'm not the only one thinking this.
This also brings to mind 'Triple Frontier'. This movie was in production limbo for years when Netflix finally got it made. It also starred Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam and Oscar Issac all as leads. They messed this movie up so bad that it's actually irritating to think about. It had a great premise, great actors and a big budget. But turned out that the only thing good about the actual movie was it didn't have a long run time. Along with this you have just ridiculous movies like 'Tall Girl' which most everyone hated.
You can also see this in their series. On one hand, you have a great series like 'OA'. This was a great, great show that got canceled on it's second season for seemingly no reason. It had a rapidly growing fan base, then canceled. This is the same for numerous other shows that got canceled on the third season. On the other hand, you have shows like 'Locke & Key', 'Iron Fist', 'Another Life' being pumped out like clockwork. These shows didn't need to be made.. and they're mostly all just bad. Put the funds into quality content like 'Ozark', 'Narcos', 'Stranger Things', 'OA' etc.
Now I'm not saying that everything they put out has to be to my exact taste, considering they have to make content in a wide variety for everyone. But I am saying that their decision making in what they should/should not produce is insanely lacking. It's like someone dropped the ball on one mediocre or flat out bad movie/show a while back and everyone just left it on the ground.
