      It’s the one you’ve never heard of. Of course. And thank you Netflix for releasing MORE movies nobody wants to watch. I’m back to cable the first chance I get. Consumers shouldn’t be treated as though they’re too dumb to figure out they’re paying for sub-par programming. Honestly. I have a friend who collects better movies than the ones offered on here.
