    You can’t ignore the brilliant Dusk til Dawn original NEXTFLIX series. Based on the original Movie “A Texas Ranger is in hot pursuit of the infamous Gecko brothers.”. Winner!!!

    • Thanks for the recommendation!

    ‘The Next Three Days’ with Russell Crowe (Netflix). Surprisingly good, and tense, once it gets going, if a bit unbelievable at times….. Also: The LookOut, also on Netflix.

    • We’ll check it out!

    The selection of Netflix streaming movies above 2 stars is pretty poor.
