Every week, the streaming search engine Reelgood compiles for Business Insider a list of which movies have been most prominent on Netflix’s daily lists that week. On Reelgood, users can browse Netflix’s entire movie library and sort by IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes ratings.

This week also includes the Netflix original “Enola Holmes” and Brad Pitt’s baseball drama, “Moneyball.”
