Netflix new releases for June 10

Fri Jun 10, 2011

There’s not a lot to recommend in the latest releases. If you really want to watch a Thor movie, avoid this stinker and shell out the extra bucks for the excellent version that’s in the cinema right now. But if I had to pick, I’d go with the critic darling Waltz with Bashir, even though it looks like a bit of a downer.
