Some of my favorites:
- Cashback. Dark comedy, in HD, about an art student who can't sleep at all after his girlfriend dumps him, who seems to develop the power to stop time. I loved it.
- Mister Foe
Quirky drama starring Jamie Bell of Billy Eliot fame as the title character, a painfully shy teen with a voyeurism problem who thinks that his stepmother murdered his mother. Also starring the beautiful Sophia Myles, who displays pretty much all of her skin, which alone is worth the price of admission . In HD.
- The Man from Earth
Quiet Sci-Fi drama, about a college professor who's moving on, who reveals that he's an extremely old immortal to a small group of friends during a gathering to see him off. Not in HD, but it's almost completely a conversation set in a single room; HD video and surround sound wouldn't improve it much. Very, very good.
Very good British Sci-Fi piece presented as six 50+ minute long parts concerning a modern-day Dr. Jekyll. Excellent, though not in HD.
- Legend of the Seeker, Season 1 and Season 2
Light-weight sword-and-sorcery fantasy television series which I've enjoyed. Season 2 is the current season, not available on DVD, with each new episode added on the Monday after the Sunday when it first airs. In very good HD (not broadcast in HD by the local station which carries it).
An eye-opening, upsetting and sad drama about an ex-law-enforcement officer (Kevin Kline) who reluctantly teams up with a Mexican teen to find his daughter and the teen's little sister, both abducted by the same group of sex slave traders. Disliked by the critics, but enjoyed by Netflix subs, including me.
