This week Netflix's top 10 has been dominated by a certain popular vampire franchise that's just been added to their library. That's right, all of the movies from The Twilight Saga are now available to stream on Netflix! Whether you're Team Edward or Team Jacob, you can relive this eternal series from start to finish. But before you dive in, we'd first like to rank all of the Twilight movies in order from best to worst.

    Of course, coming in at number one is the film that got this saga started. It introduced us to the unlikely love story between a young human girl and a vampire. Teenager Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is new in a small town and she's somewhat of an outcast, until she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) in her biology class. In her brief experience with vampires, they seem to be not so bad. But just because one vampire is nice doesn't mean the others are as well.

    If the first Twilight film was the first choice in our order when ranking these movies, then it only makes sense that the final film would be the second. The finale for this franchise is one of epic proportions, especially since (spoiler alert) Bella is a vampire now. She's also birthed a half-human, half-vampire child that poses a threat in the eyes of some other not-so-accepting vampires. Will this war find its end with the death of this child and the rest of the Cullen family, or will their new breed prevail?

    This film marks the beginning an alliance between the Cullen family of vampires and Jacob's family of werewolves. Though these two beefcakes are trying to work together for the safety of Bella, that doesn't stop them from bumping heads now and again. She continuously floats between them trying to hold them both close, just one a little more closely than the other. Will this dynamic trio be able to put their personal squabbles aside to assure that Bella lives, or will jealously be their undoing?

    Following the events of the first film, this flick lands fourth on our list as a new character/possible love interest is thrown into the mix. Edward feels overwhelmed by his responsibility to keep Bella safe in his world, so he pushes her away. By doing this, he inadvertently sets her up to be pulled back in by a man named Jacob Black. Jacob and Bella are just friends but as their friendship progresses, Bella learns that Jacob has a very big secret that he decided not to share. Again, spoiler alert, Jacob is a werewolf! If you didn't know, in this universe werewolves and vampires are each other's greatest enemies. So, we're pretty sure Edward wouldn't approve of this new bond between Bella and Jacob, whether it's plutonic or not.

    And to finish off our list, we've chose the first part of the final film. Though they've been through quite a lot, Bella and Edward are finally tying the knot. A mortal and a vampire getting married? This is unheard of in their world. What's even more unheard of... a human woman getting pregnant from a vampire. When the news breaks, Bella becomes a target of the werewolves. Which side will Jacob chooses when it comes down to picking between his family and his love for Bella?
