I don't think Netflix is getting enough credit for it streaming titles (or for the dvds it has available). I've been a movie fanatic for well over 45 years and have seen an outrageous amount of movies of all types and genres. I wasn't sure if it would be worth it to join for just that reason but after joining I have been amazed at just how many really good, new (for me) films I've seen and the fact that so many good ones ARE available to stream and on dvd (ones that I have already seen). Maybe people just don't take enough chances when picking a movie or don't know enough about them to take that chance. There are all kinds of film anthologies like Video Hound's Independent Film Guide or The Phantom's Ultimate Video Guide or Guide for the Film Fanatic to name a few that offer short, concise synopsis' of thousands of films that could help with making choices. There are many good websites to check like Rotten tomatoes which ranks the best (and worst) films of every year and lists the top 100 per genere. Metacritic.com is a great place to find great films. They list the top 100 best rated films of all time, the top 100 worst rated films plus they list all the award winning films from just about any critic's organization or societies from the year 2000 up till now. Now of course my recommendations are based on my opinion but Netflix streams alone has films like A Town Called Panic, Paper Heart, Savage Grace, Bright Star, Intermission, Battleground, Waco:The Rule of Engagement, The Maid, The Last September, The Most Dangerous Game, 3:10 to Yuma (original), The Devil Came on Horseback, Surveillance, The Most Dangerous Man in America, The Plague Dogs, Mary and Max, Hunger, The Greatest, Kicking It, The Damned United, 35 Shots of Rum, Goodbye, Solo, Silent Light, Under the Sand, The 4D Man, Sound and Fury, Man Push Cart, Hell House, Chop Shop, The Stoning of Soraya M., Helvetica, Werwolf of London, Art and Copy, The Girl on the Train, The Velveteen Rabbit, How About You, Every Little Step, The Rape of Europa, Mine, Then She Found Me, Hearts and Minds, Thirst, Right At Your Door, Ratcatcher, A Boy and His Dog, The September Issue, Sunshine Cleaning, Them (not the sci-fi flick, though that's a great one, too) are just a few that run the gamut of every type of film you can think of that you might enjoy. And that's not even mentioning the wide variety of dvds they have available (I have had a list of nearly 100 films that I have been trying to see for nearly 20 years that just haven't been available at Blockbuster etc and that list has been reduced to about 10 or so since joining Netflix. I actually found all the Knights Templer zombie films at Netflix by stream or dvd and those films have been nowhere to rent ever). I was seeing so many good flicks available (ones that I already have seen) it made me want to go through the categories and make a list to post on this thread so other film geeks would get a chance to discover some of these gems I've already seen. And to think it can only get better. To me, at this price, nothing anywhere compares. It helps if you try and push out of the blockbuster mentality and branch out. And Netflix is still adding new, recent films AND some films that are 20-30 years old.
