    Netflix Instant Movie recommendation thread

    Found this cheesy overly stylized Kung-Fu meets Cowboys flick to be very entertaining
    The Warrior's Way


    and if that's not enough East meets West for ya there's the Dick Tracy meets Kill Bill type samurai gunslinger movie:
    Bunraku


    this one stars:
    Josh Hartnett, Gackt, Woody Harrelson, Ron Perlman, Kevin McKidd, Demi Moore, Shun Suguta, Emily Kaiho, Jordi Mollà, Larnell Stovall, Mike Patton


    what do you recommend?

    I signed up for the on-line Netflix last week. Not very impressed with the selection... Will probably just cancel it out after my free month and go back to renting from the Redbox.

    you seriously cannot find anything in instant that you think is groovy?

    hell...just for TV shows you can watch all the 24's, Lost, 70's show, how I met your mother, Firefly, etc..etc..etc... in a row wit no commercials

    a whole mess of awesome documentaries like 'Exit through the Gift Shop'..Life in a day, etc..

    what kind of movies are you into?...I'll find you something cool.

    For instant "13 Assassins" was an awesome Samurai Movie if your into that sort of thing.

    Also a big fan of "Top Gear" "30 Rock" "Breaking Bad" "Firefly" for the TV Category.

    "Big Lebowski" was instant for a while as well, one of my alltime fav's.

    I tried HULU+ for a wheek and was very disapointed.

    lots of cool stuff on Netflix Instant. gotta fill out the preferences form and rate movies for it to recommend stuff to you.

    I watch more old tv shows on it since we dropped the discs through the mail service. but I love all of the documentaries.

    I recently watched "Pelada" and really enjoyed it.

    Don't know if you have seen them or into these two movies or if there even on there, check them out.

    13 (2010) - IMDb
    and
    Unthinkable (2010) - IMDb

    These are just suggestions.

    Unthinkable is a crazy movie though.....

    Brick.

    Kinda offbeat (Indy) film with some real nice cinematography. Has a cool vibe to it, at least for me.

    Firefly, cancelled way to soon. Serenity is an excellent instant title on netflix.

    Titles not so obvious that one could easily pass over that I liked-

    Me and You and Everyone We Know- I highly recommend. Funny, quirky, odd in the right way.

    Pi- Interesting, worth viewing.

    Freaked- Funny and weird.

    Shigurui- Dark violent anime. One of the best in it's genre, equal to if not better than Ninja Scroll.

    Jim Henson's the Storyteller- Just love these. Old world mythological tales+JIm Henson creatures, not Kermit and miss Piggy.

    Winnebago Man- Documentary about the Youtube pottymouth sensation.

    I was channel surfing a few weeks ago and found Rubber. I watched a minute or two in the middle and thought "really? a sentient tire? Why's it going to this Motel?"

    As for Hobo, I keep seeing it listed as well.

    I'll have to try them both.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Remember all of the YouTube videos of Hitler ranting? Check out the movie. It is an excellent movie and don't be skeered about having to read subtitles. It's no biggie.

    Pink Floyd fans..

    check out the Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon documentary. It's a great piece focusing not on the band so much at the time (although how could you not) but it's more of an introspective into the technical aspect of the making of that album. The track layouts, the dubbing, the vocals overlay-ed and how they came to be.

    If there has ever been a more amazing collage of songs put together I can't think of what album could trump Dark Side.

    I had a ton of stuff qued up but me and the SO parted ways so I no longer have Netflix. Some I remember:
    Buffalo 66
    Patrice O'Neil: Elephant in the Room
    Weeds
    Patton Oswalt no sure what the title was but I think there's only one; if there's more, watch them all.
    Buckaroo Banzai
    There was a bunch of horror I can't remember right now. I can try to look up the watch instantly list and recommend some movies from it if you care.

    I have more to offer, but this should fill your queues for the time being. I'm a film nut.

    The movie "I Think We're Alone Now" is deeply disturbing, about two Tifanny (yes, the 80's pop star) stalkers. One is a man who lives in Santa Cruz, and the other is a transvestite in the mid-west. Pretty strange stuff.

    "Rampage" is just outright disturbing.

    I cancelled my netflix when i found out the were supporters of SOPA/PIPA, and now CISPA.

    I will concur, however, that Rampage is an insanely effed-up flick, well worth a watch if you want to wrap your mind around something so bizarre that all you can do is ask yourself...wtf just happened?

    and the hitler movie, downfall, really is an amazing flick of hitlers last days. the subs are well done and integrate nicely with the movie, and the acting is really top notch.

    The cover for Rampage looks like an 80's B-movie and it's far from that. Very effed up movie.

    Wow man I've watched so many different things in Netflix....too much time on my hands I guess
    24, Flashforward, Lost, How I Met your mother, Breaking Bad and tons of movies.

    However I just cancelled the DVD thing because it's a steal, technically there is no way to watch more than 6-8 movies a month, and at ~$10 for the DVD service = $1.5 per movie.. RedBox it is!

    I try to watch 3 movies a week. If you have Xfinity, don't forget their free streaming movies. The other day I watched "Cube" (1998) and it was pretty good.

    I love war docs. If you're into that sort of thing, "Restrepo" was done well (mentioned above). "Armadillo" was also very good, which focused on our Danish allies.

    "Freakonomics" was okay, but I think it could've been compressed into an hour.

    Oooh... I can't go without mentioning "Old Boy" - this was my introduction into Korean Film fanboydom.

    Not on instant yet, but I watched Prometheus yesterday and ended up letting it stand as a 6, instead of the 10 I was anticipating it was going to be.

    There was no movie I was more excited to get into my queue and back to my house than this movie, but it's like I went out on a date with a hot chick and all I got was a peck on the cheek.

    Sci-Fi "human origins" movies always fascinate me. I really enjoyed BattleStar Galactica for that reason, but this movie had me going, "Now why is he/she/they doing that?" There was really no emotional connection to the characters, even the main one (Noomi Rapace is petite, little fox) and you never understand motive behind anybody's actions.

    The "engineers" - or the beings that made humans - acted in a way that was totally from left field, and you wondered why they were doing what they were doing. There was small discussion of their motives, but nothing more than a one liner.

    This is the prequel to Alien. It wasn't horror (like Alien) and for a Sci-Fi movie, it didn't deliver the way I wanted it to.

    Man... I really wanted more than just a peck on the cheek. I wanted a full blown-out porno scene.

    Rottentomatoes.com has a new Netflix streaming page. It's under the DVD section. You can select rating, genre, review rating etc. And the site filters the movies. If you sign in you can watch or add the movie to your que.

    Red box sucks. The selection is very limited and most are poor at best. I can rent 3-4 movies a month through red box Max.

    The 13th Floor.
    Surprisingly good sci-fi from the late 90's that I streamed last week. Has elements from The Matrix, a later movies like The Truman Show and Inception. A thinking mans sci-fi movie, not an action blockbuster.

    I can see why I (and most people) never heard of or saw this movie as it came out around the same time as The Matrix. If you like the movies I mentioned above I think you'll like this movie.
