    Tyrel is a 2017 release about a black man invited to spend a weekend of drinking with all white people(and he only knows one of them). Its a comedy drama and its a worthy watch.

    PLOT: Tyrel, a sole black man, attends an otherwise all-white weekend of drunken bro debauchery on a birthday trip to a cabin in the Catskills.

    Robocop 2,

    This is a film that shows what can happen when intolerant criminal undergrounds gain some popularity.



    While the first sequel is not IMO as good as the original Robocop...Robocop II is a worthy film. The story puts a Honest Police officer against criminals of all classes. Its a classic good vs bad. I give the film 3/4 stars.

    Movie critics have never impressed me much. They like what I don't, and and what I do like.

    I'm just not a fan of Hollywooding things like riots. It's basically revisionist history depending on the politics of the producer, director and writers. I'm sure someone like Spike Lee, for example, would present an entirely different version.

    Detroit is a 2017 American period crime drama film directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal. Based on the Algiers Motel incident during Detroit's 1967 12th Street Riot, the film's release commemorated the 50th anniversary of the event.

    That might be possible. At the same time Netflix currently offers a good # of Netflix original movies and Netflix TV shows you might like. Im not sure if Netflix brands out its own material to other companies like Amazon , Direct Tv or Spectrum. Netflix is somewhat cheap as well at least compared to Cable Tv.
    They probably do ,but I already have a hefty dish bill and I'm not looking to add to it, or to take any ore time away from my hobby.

    The film had me enticed the entire time. I rate it above the other Drug film I saw "The Mule" with Clint Eastwood. The Mule bored me to death, there may have been a few good parts but I was waiting for that film to end. So far I have to say that Triple Frontier has been my favorite film of the year.

    You could do a free trail with netflix and cancel before the trail ends.

    Triple Frontier is a must watch action film on Netflix. Its about 5 Us military guys tasked with taking on a daring mission against a Drug lord.
