I'm not surprised at all to see some of the new trending movies and TV shows on Netflix, such as The Gray Man or The Sandman. But can we talk about how Men In Black 3 continues to hit the Netflix top ten movies day after day? Don't get me wrong, I am all about watching more Josh Brolin; this was simply a nostalgic hit that I was not expecting on a Saturday morning. Either way, I'm excited for the Netflix trending list to remind me some awesome entires on the platform that I have yet to check out, like Uncharted and Sing 2. It's a good reminder that there is new content hitting the streaming service almost daily, and to keep on top of my watch list.
