Thanksgiving is over. The turkey has been eaten, those pumpkin pies are long gone, and now there’s a relatively unlimited parade of football video games, Black Friday deals that are just out of reach, and the scary possibility of taking a trip back home at one of the most crowded times of the year.
A fantastic thing about the holiday season is that it offers you with extra chances to enjoy the motion pictures in your Netflix lineup. Digital Trends has actually assembled a selection of the leading 10 films (together with an extra one for the kids) currently available for streaming on Netflix. The collection includes the most recent work by David Fincher, a romantic comedy from 2023 that you might have overlooked, and a classic science fiction movie that will soon have a follow up in 2024.

But after a near-miss, The Killer discovers himself on the defensive in a global manhunt that tests his perseverance and his cool.
