Puncture is a great film starring Chris Evans that you've probably never heard of. See the film and you'll understand why.

This film is well worth a watch .. Evans performance alone makes it worth while ..

Has Netflix always been running 24fps? I'm watching Lost and it's running in 1080p 24fps on the ps3. I'm just curious cause I never seen this before.

Just finished up The Nest, which is an excellent French(!) action movie.

It says it expires May 1, so hurry if you're interested.

Your television is reporting that it's receiving 24p from PS3 Netflix? Only a few known Netflix players will output 24p--if the PS3 has joined their ranks that's pretty big news.

Yes it is. I was watching the first season of Lost when I noticed it. See if it works for you

My interest in intellectual--my television can't process a 24p signal. I assume that msgohan tried it before reporting that his was still outputting 60p, so it's not doing it for everyone.

More a "find" than a "gem" but Undocumented is a very disturbing movie with Peter Stormare delivering a chilling performance.

I didn't know that Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange was there (in HD with CCs)! One of my all-time favorite films of one of my all-time favorite novels. Absolutely classic. Maybe a little dated after 41 years, but still looks great.

I see that it was added 5 years ago and was mentioned a year ago in this thread. Strange that I've missed it.

I don't know if I'd call it the weirdest movie ever, but it certainly is one of the best movies .. chilling / prophetic / ground breaking / also come to mind ..

"Neo Ned" really impresses. The characters are real and shine.

Having read "The Naked and the Dead" i kept anticipating and sure

enough Ned fit into the demographic.
The stereotypes are quickly shattered though, very unconventional in
a good way. The lead actress has a bod, oh boy what a bod!!!

http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Ne...?trkid=2361637



=============================================

Another love story, very emotional and dramatic, yet the characters are strong
enough not to inspire pity or make you want to cry a lot. The main character is
caught in the thick net of devotion, shame, and guilt,  and is only allowed a brief

breather that lingers forever  and is then rekindled only by pure chance. The

Mercedes was really cool too.

1. Riding With the Devil 1999 Film with Toby Maguire as the lead role. Also has Jewel and Jim Caviezel who I think is cool. Good acting and nice shooting scenes.
2. Bad Boys 1983 Sean Penn is a maniac in this film but so is his cellmate. A good example of group dynamics at work.
3. The Ghost and Mrs Muir 1947 Good story and acting. Good one to watch with the lady folks. I loved it.

I dropped my disc plan yesterday and now only have streaming. I had the BD option too but was picking too many legacy discs that were available DVD only. And I was getting movies sent that I really didn't feel like watching that night. There are no less than 7 Redbox kiosks within a two mile radius of me and they've increased the BD selection so I can pick a movie on disc to watch when I want to watch it. And some of the legacy films are becoming available streaming from other sources (Vudu, Amazon).

Sleeping Beauty is a quirky Australian film with Emily Browning ("Sucker Punch"). Not for everyone but an interesting find.

You should read the book, I felt anger reading it growing up in a real Commie country, I am glad the system eventually collapsed.

The real Commie futurama is this one though, the movie just cannot replicate Orwell's description of intimate horror of the ratcage-over-face scene like the book:

To End All Wars

[A great POW movie where issues such as courage human dignity are brought to the forefront amidst a clash of cultures during a World War. So, Alot going on here in this film but it is covered pretty well.

I just noticed that they have


Hannibal
, 2001 sequel to the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs (which, curiously, Netflix does not have for streaming, nor Red Dragon or the not-so-great Hannibal Rising). Harris' novel ends the story of Hannibal Lecter, but they copped out and left the door open for a new chapter. A surprisingly good portrayal of Clarice Starling by Julianne Moore and lots of over-the-top fun from Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman. I always liked this film, though the critics did not. Worth the price of admission for the gorgeously filmed interlude in Florence (and Hans Zimmer's score) alone.

The film is presented with available HD video, 5.1 sound and English captions.

EDIT: I just watched it again for the first time in some years and enjoyed it.

Meek's Cutoff

Interesting approach to this movie. As Roger Ebert puts it this film is more of an experience than about any one character. What I carried away from this movie was that we all have hard decisions to make and then we have to live with them. A part 2 might be in order for this one.

As per usually, Netflix has added a bunch of new stuff at the beginning of the month: 116 HD movies since 5/1 (44 w/5.1 sound), including some of my favorites, Sea of Love, Scent of a Woman, Network, Legends of the Fall, Snatch, Ground Hog Day, Dog Day Afternoon (lots of Pacino for some reason, including some others I haven't mentioned), The 13th Floor and Starship Troopers.
