Next year it’s the good news / bad news routine with Netflix. The good news is you can stream movies for $6.99 a month. The bad news is they’re going to stop renting a number of movies by the time you read this, January 1, and we’re shocked at some of the titles that will no longer be available.
As we recently reported on TG, the film Sneakers just had its 20th anniversary, and WarGames will hit its 30th anniversary next year.
