Best of Netflix Instant-Queue

Postby phishpile » Sat May 07, 2011 11:43 pm

Alright Ohkeepals,

Netflix instant Queue is a great invention, BUT sometimes the movies available are limited.

Post the cinematic gems that you found to help others who are frustrated and looking for a good movie.

Just watched Appalachian trail. Its a national geographic documentary. Very enjoyable.

so basically there's nothing on instant cue then. That's why I cancelled, nothing but B movies and TV shows I've already seen.

Hulu and Megavideo smoke netflix and they're free.

The last four movies I listed are the best foreign films ive ever seen and would never have checked out without netflix.

Hulu had ads and megavideo has their time limit. Megavideo hosts movies but not legally and Hulu does not host movies IIRC.

Please disregard the movie 'Frozen', unless you like watching wolves eat people falling off of ski lifts while frozen....

Watch the documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop". If you have flaky friends who think they are real artists because they can sell some of their horrible paintings or shitty jewelry at an art exhibit, make sure they watch this too. That doc is soo good, but you have to stick it out for the twist at the end. It totally makes it one of the best documentary's ever.

Dudes....I know no one ever listens to me, but if you're ever going to, even just once, make sure you queue this documentary up sometime soon. It is completely baffling how little I knew about this man. Such a beautiful voice and a brilliant songwriter.

I watched that a while ago... so so so awesome.

It actually made me watch the Robbin Williams Popeye afterwards, which is (or was) instant queueable. And, just as bad as I remembered.



Sons of Anarchy is on there, I burned through two season so quick... can't wait for the third!

I think you can watch all the episodes of Party Down on Netflix Instant.
Also, several Akira Kurosawa films for all you lovers of Japanese movies out there.

The only Star Trek I have ever watched is the new movie.

Now, it appears the entire series is on Instant Queue. I am 3 episodes deep, and enjoying it. Not calling myself a Trekkie just yet, but the cheesiness is so good.

Holy mackerel. The story of Jesco White, from the infamous White family of West Virginia.

One of the craziest endings I have ever seen in a movie.

Highly suggested, even if you have to find the rental somewheres.

Netflix has over the last few years managed to drive the video stores out of business for all intents and purposes, and admittedly, I've helped them do it because I found their services to be efficient and reasonably priced.

However, now that they have so much of the market cornered, they are ready to stick it to their loyal customers by raising their prices substantially. This increase isn't so bad if you only buy one service or the other, the download or the delivery service. But if you want both, your monthly fee will increase by about 60%, and I don't know if anything is worth that much of a jump.

I see a lot of people complaining about that one Facebook (cough cough phishinsky)... and well. Essentially.... I have no major problem with just dropping the DVD service. I usually keep a DVD for 2 weeks before I get around to watching it, and there is nothing on DVD I really NEED to get.

So, I will be dropping to Streaming only on August 31st, and SAVING 2 bucks a month. For those must have DVD releases, my public library has quite the collection, and for the how new releases, I am able to put items on hold.

I understand the disgust, but am not put off by it at all.

Plus, I think what my solution is is what Netflix wants you to do. I remember an article I read a year or two ago that stated to mail a DVD it is 49 cents each way, plus the cost of paper and the physical DVD. To stream a 90 minute movie costs them 2 to 3 cents.

I dropped my cable once Lost finished last year, and have barely missed it (sports game is about it, and that is what friends/bars are for!). And I recently signed up for Hulu Plus to catch up with a ton of current television programs (which I am not too crazy about anyways, Jimmy Fallon rules).

So yeah, I understand the disgust, but I could care less.

I would be fine with this IF the Netflix instant que had anything recent to offer. I certinly enjoy going back and watching stuff that came out a decade ago, but, it is not like the are updating the instant que with anyting that is coming out now. With all of the money they are making off of their 23 mil customers, you'd think they would pump some of that into making the straming part a but more up to date...esp if it only costs them 2 or 3 cents.
This isn't who it would be, if it wasn't who it is.

There are a ton of great independents, current movies like Star Trek and the Iron Mans, amazing foreign ones like the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy AND Let the Right One In AND the American remake Let Me In (watch all of these!!!!), and a whole bunch of movies.

And personally, the documentary section is my favorite, and they have a TON. If I could only watch one genre of movie, it would be a doc.

So yeah, there are some great movies on there, they just don't have Harry Potter or Aunt Madea in the title. :sick:

edit- oh, and I forgot to mention, complete television series! I'm going through the original Star Trek for the first time, which is more enjoyable than I would have imagined, and sitcoms like Scrubs and Cheers.

(I can't wait for season 3 of Sons of Anarchy to appear)
