Choose or Die is currently the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system. Formerly titled “CURS>R,” the new British horror film premiered on April 15 and quickly zoomed to the top of the ranking. “Choose or Die” follows two friends who start playing a mysterious retro video game and quickly learn that it interferes with reality in terrifying ways. In second place is “Hop,” a 2011 animated comedy about the unlikely friendship between a human slacker and a young rabbit named E.B., who is due to succeed his father as the Easter Bunny. And in third is “Cleaner,” a 2007 thriller about a crime scene cleaner, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes and Ed Harris.
Other older films in the current ranking include the 2013 Halle Barry thriller “The Call” and the 2016 supernatural horror flick “Ouija: Origin of Evil” ― a prequel to 2014’s “Ouija.” As for original films from Netflix, the Ryan Reynolds sci-fi adventure movie “The Adam Project” remains on the list more than a month after its release on March 11. And there’s a new Polish rom-com called “The Taming of the Shrewd” (“Poskromienie zlosnicy”). Check out the full list of the top 10 movies.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Totenberg ruled earlier this week that an effort to disqualify the conspiracy theorist from running for reelection over her alleged role in the attack on the Capitol last Jan. 6 can proceed. The group who filed the challenge, Free Speech for People, is alleging that Greene is in violation of the 14th Amendment, which states that if someone took an oath to defend the Constitution and then “engaged in insurrection or rebellion,” they can’t serve in Congress. Totenberg’s decision means Greene will have to testify under oath on Friday. Greene seems a little worried, perhaps because she’s built her entire career on pushing lies and unfounded conspiracy theories — from Jewish-funded space lasers starting the California wildfires to the 2020 election being stolen — and has little experience telling the truth, which she’ll now have to do lest she open herself up to perjury charges. “You want to talk about it? It’s a big lie,” she said recently on One America News. “They want to talk about the big lie, this is the big lie and it’s destroying democracy.” Greene grew even more animated about the media presence in the courtroom. “I really hope you guys get a camera in that courtroom,” she continued. “You know what the Democrats and the media are going to do: They’re going to click and cut and paste so they can sell a lie on their networks every night.”
