  1. Looking forward to VALKYRIE great film ,even those I got it on blu ray really enjoy watching on Netflix ,blade runner 2049, psycho, August not bad month for releases.

  2. The title of the anime is “Hero ≠ Mask” – “Hero does not equal Mask” – the opposite sense of “Hero Mask”. Bonkers version of London, I can’t wait to see James Blood again.

  3. Unfortunately the last few months of releases have been pretty poor and not what I expect from Netflix.Not impressed at all.They need to up their game if they want customers to stay.

  4. After today’s releases it is pretty poor Netflix are not what they were,things going down fast for the company .
