    Couldn't find a what's garbage on Netflix thread.

    The Great Hack- another propaganda piece to try to prove Trump cheated and Hillary isn’t a snake.

    Yeah, when I saw the preview for this it started off pretty interesting but then when it steered into Trump and Brexit I got the impression it would be more about the 2016 elections than any real examination of the vast quantities of data collected by Facebook, Google and others and what is done with it.

    Turns out I was right. This documentary only superficially covers the issue of data privacy and instead makes excuses for the grand failures of the neoliberal machine against Trump and Brexit. It was like an insufferable Michael Moore film. There was one particularly egregious moment where it is falsely implied that there was a link between Brittany Kaiser meeting with Assange and Wikileaks releasing the DNC emails.

    Cambridge Analytica were the Facebook version of robocall and pamphlet campaigns.

    The Witches- that transformation scene. Loved it as a kid and it holds up well enough.

    The Prestige- Nolans best, though his first couple of Batman movies weren't half bad either.

    Wu Assassins

    Can be very cheesy at times, and the lead actor cannot act at all - but the martial arts fight scenes are incredible.
