It’s been a good year for good movies, if you ask Rotten Tomatoes. Based on data compiled through Dec. 13, 2016, the review aggregator website reported a record number of movies Certified Fresh—a seal awarded to the highest scored movies on the site. A movie becomes Certified Fresh if its Tomatometer rating, or its percentage of positive professional reviews, is at 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide releases and 40 for limited release movies), including five reviews from top critics.

Excluding the final weeks of 2016, 184 films were Certified Fresh, representing 17.4% of movies represented on the website, the highest percentage in five years. Among those films, six stand at 100%. Movies on Rotten Tomatoes tend to have slightly higher reviews than other review aggregators, like Metacritic, since Rotten Tomatoes rates all professional reviews as either positive or negative, whereas Metacritic gives reviews a weighted score.

If you’re waffling about what to see in theaters over the holidays, or what to hunker down and stream from your couch, here are all 184 movies scored at 75% or above, listed in order of descending score:
