Have you ever had those dinner-time experiences where you want to watch some Netflix while eating but you finish dinner by the time you land on a movie you’d like to binge on? If not, you’re probably doing something right that most of us are not. You know what helps us? Knowing what to watch before we even log into Netflix. This post is dedicated to that very need.
Netflix is way too full of choices. But some movies and shows just hit people on a different level. Some directors or producers excite people whenever they come up with something new. Just imagine how the internet will break when Squid Game season 2 finally drops on Netflix. Here, we’ve created a list-n-gist of the most anticipated Netflix shows and movies in 2023. The list is based on IMDB’s Movie Meter.
Director: David Yates
Genre: Crime, Drama | Cast: Emily Blunt, Chris Evans, Catherine O’Hara, Andy Garcia, Amit Shah
Netflix Release Date: October, 27th, 2023
David Yates is celebrated for having directed the final four Harry Potter films and the three prequel films in the Fantastic Beasts series. Yates has tried his lense on the crime-drama genre for the first time in Pain Hustlers and the people are excited for the result.
Pain Hustlers is about a highschool dropout who joins a failing pharmaceutical startup to build a better life for herself and her daughter and while hustling up the ladder, somehow lands into a criminal conspiracy.
Phew! And you thought only going to casinos could land you in trouble, well, unless you’re using the right kind of PayPal casinos.

There’s a lot of excitement built around the movie.

Did we miss anything that you are looking forward to watching? Surely we did. We have not discussed shows like The Nurse, FUBAR (Arnold Schwarzenegger looks hot), or The Perfect Couple. We’ve also skipped movies like Beverly Hills Cop: Alex Foley where Eddie Murphy returns as one of his most iconic characters or Damsel casting Millie Bobby Brown. Then again, we cannot touch everything, can we?
