Every once in a while when Im surfing netflix through my xbox I end up watching something I dont expect much from and end up thoroughly enjoying, like Moon for example. I know that plenty hatrackers use the service and thought it would be interesting to see what everyone could recomend, were all OSC fans so that should be a good base for quality of product we have all been known to enjoy.

Carriers starring Chris Pine (new Kirk) is about four people surviving a highly contagious disease ravaging the known world. It is not Resident Evil or Zombieland, I found it to be much more realistic in how they acted and reacted to the changing world.

District B13 is a French action film oozing with parkour instead of guns and kung fu. I think they are making a re-edited international version (dub it in english and re-state the story several times over so we can understand it) but the version offered is subbed in english. Oh yeah, just in case any has heard of this guy Luc Besson, hes the producer I guess. If you havent heard of parkour/free-running before this movie is a good introduction if a bit dramatic.

The Up series is pretty fantastic. Instead of watching all the installments I think it's okay to just watch one of the latter installments (as it includes flashbacks to earlier interviews.)

Arrested Development is on there. So is the first season of "Californication." The pilot is a riot.

I just noticed that all 7 seasons of Buffy are available streaming. I've enjoyed rewatching some of my favorites while I've been off work for a few days.

The Man From Earth, scripted by Jerome Bixby.

Very low-budget (in a good way), lots of familiar faces as the actors (but no big names). A college professor preparing to depart his job and town reveals to his close friends he is in reality an immortal caveman. Thought provoking and intelligent.

SF without cgi, explosions, or Transformers.

I am watching Heroes, Air Bender, and Pushing Daisies.

Netflix just added a bunch more mainstream/blockbuster movies with a deal they made with Epix.

The star of District B13, David Belle, is widely credited as being the originator of the Parkour activity. I remember seeing a couple of YouTube videos of him back in 2004 or 2005 just doing his thing around Paris suburbs. One of them was dubbed over with Mario Bros. sound effects, which was pretty amusing, and that one can still be found. I remember another one that had an interview of him by what was probably a local news outlet, but I can't find that one anymore (maybe taken down for copyright reasons). It featured a number of spots that are also shown in the Mario movie, but in longer segments. Many of those locations can be found in District B13, then some of the exact moves are copied in the "Casino Royale" James Bond movie's opening chase scene.

That was a great script. I love the reaction of everyone when he gets to the big "reveal." I love the whole discussion of how much he remembers from being a caveman.

Its not streaming, but I just watched the first disc of Supernatural and put the entirety of the released series on my que at the top of the list. Episodic scifi\paranormal without gratuitous sexuality (Charmed) and super clean-cut story-line and sets (Sanctuary) Im actually happy that I ignored the show until now, now I get to shotgun five seasons of entertainment.

And, as the youngest of three boys I enjoy the banter shared so far by the sibling protagonists. Towards the end of the pilot they announce the emotional tone one should expect from the heroes with a bit dialogue, I am paraphrasing but its close.

"(dramatically) Hey, about what I said about Mom earlier... Im--"
"Whoa. No chick-flick moments"
"(amused) Jerk."
"B####"

Like I said, I am the youngest of three brothers and appreciate art reflecting life.

Weirdly enough, in the last few days I've been watching various movies like Beetlejuice and Dune streaming. Also, lots of South Park.

Now, I'm finding lots of independent movies on here. This Film Has Not Been Rated was interesting, as an example!

I used to do origami as a kid, and I used to be pretty proud of myself until I found Between the Folds on Netflix. It twisted my mind into pretzels. It's only about an hour, but it changed the way I look the whole of art, science, and their intersection.

Also, I just finished watching the first couple seasons of The Sarah Silverman Program. For some reason I thought it was kind of annoying when I caught it on TV, but I've seen every episode Netflix has to offer and I found them absolutely brilliant this time around. I don't know what drugs I was on the first time.

Watched "Franklyn" last night. I recommend it.

The pace is kind of slow and deliberate, and for the first 30 minutes you will find yourself asking, "Okay, what's real and what isn't? And what do these three storylines have to do with each other?" And not everyone will like the ending.

But it does eventually resolve and tie everything in, and I wasn't disappointed. And visually, it has a nifty look, with some of the action taking place in a neat, surreal, fantasy city.

I had no idea Sarah Silverman was on NF Streaming! Thanks for mentioning that, Speed.

Veronica Mars seasons 1-2 are quite good.

They have pretty much every Sherlock Holmes adventure Jeremy Brett ever did.

Good movies I've seen on there recently:
Body Heat
Solaris
In the Mood For Love
Last Temptation of Christ
Spartan

If anyone likes cop movies and hasn't seen Heat, check it out immediately.

I was just thinking of this thread after I watched The Last Temptation of Christ, which was recently added to the Netflix streaming list.

I remember when it came out, hearing (from a bunch of people who'd never seen it) how it was the most evil, Satanic movie ever made. The controversy was so rampant that even now, 20+ years later, I was a little reluctant to watch it.

But I'm glad I did. Not only was it very well made, but it did a really good job of telling the story of Jesus' life, and highlighting the best aspects of Christianity. It's really too bad that the fundamentalist hype machine had its way with the film, and convinced so many people to avoid seeing such a lovely example of religious cinema.


Also, I just watched The Damned United after hearing about it on Fresh Air. It was made by the same director that did The King's Speech. It's loosely based on a true story that, in any other context, I probably wouldn't have given a damn about. But it's got such a cracking script, tight pacing and thrilling performances that it turned out to be a real delight. Highly recommended.

Last Temptation is a beautiful film. Might be Dafoe's best role, which is saying a lot.

Its not streaming but I just now finished watching Sunshine directed by Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire.) Starting with the cast Cillian Murphy (Scarecrow in the new Batman movies) Michelle Yeoh (duh) Cliff Curtis (lotsa smaller parts, under-rated) and Chris Evans (Fantastic 4, Evil Ex #2, soon to be the new Captian America.) The sets are indistinguishable between real and CG, a soundtrack that really drives home that Danny Boyle will never have an excuse to use a bad soundtrack in what should be a long career.

The story (like Moon) is less about the scifi aspect and more about humans in that setting. In addition to the expected special features there are two short films that apperantly Boyle believed deserved some attention. Both are interesting if not outright odd, Dad's Dead is especially unique.

Almost forgot, Survivors is a great BBC series about the few people to be immune to a flash disaster disease that kills ninety percent of the world in only a couple of days. They keep close to reality such as staying away from the cities because of disease, one woman responds that she had already had the sickness and survived and is reminded that millions of dead bodies have alot more "normal" ailments than they could protect against. Im not a BBCaholic so for me to praise a UK show is pretty rare.

In the early 80's I think, James Garner came out with an update to "Maverick". It was fun and cute and on Netflix--until Saturday. Then it disappeared off my cue.

Sunshine is amazing. First glance: it looks like The Core in space. Second glance: these shots are beautiful. Third glance: OMG, these characters aren't cracking wise, they are treating the possible end of human life on earth with the soul-crushing seriousness it deserves.

I absolutely love the way the female crew member says in the pilot, "Captain! No smoking on the bridge!"

I'd heard Timer recommended in a previous thread. I was looking through Netflix for something to watch tonight and it popped up so I went for it. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a very thoughtful treatment of the idea that people can get a timer that will tell them when they will meet their soulmate (assuming that their soulmate has a timer). Thanks to whoever originally recommended it.

I really enjoyed "The Pillars of the Earth" miniseries (available on netflix streaming) and recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical dramas. The acting is mostly great and I especially liked the performance of the actor playing Prior Philip and the performance/looks of the actress who played Aliena. The main villain is played by Ian McShane of Deadwood fame and he's menacing and brilliant as always even though the character doesn't deviate too much from relentless evil/plotting. Some reviews have mentioned how old fashioned the series feels, that it would have been a big time hit in the 80s if stripped of the sexuality/violence. It's true. That doesn't make it any less entertaining though and I think it's telling of how spoiled we've become in terms of quality television that a series like this just comes and goes without much splash.

I also think the opening credits/theme music is the best I've seen in a long while:

I have to give another nod to the Airbender series. My son and I both loved it.

Another odd movie that I happened to watch a few times and really loved is called "Protagonist" by filmmaker Jessica Yu. It's very odd, an indie flick, which interweaves the stories of 4 men who come to some sort of catastrophe in the Greek sense, having to do with their image of what it means to be a man. Some of the scenes are acted out by these eerie puppets, while the men are telling about them, and there are scenes from a play by Euripides woven in as well. I found it fascinating and one of those movies you think about for a long time afterward.

I've been watching Jeremiah, which is good on its own as post-apocalyptic comic-book adaptation. But if you grew up in the late 80s or 90s, you'll love Luke Perry and Malcolm Jamal-Warner in the lead roles.

+1 on Arrested Development.

Ditto on Jeremiah, the occasional guest star or joke relating to either one of thier histories is priceless.

There's a movie called "The Maze" that's streaming now. It's a pretty cheesy horror movie (actually, I didn't see the whole thing so I'd better not pass judgment), but if you skip to the 53-minute mark you'll see the latest acting work of one Richard Dutcher. Nice to see Mr. God's Army getting paid again.

I don't know if the DC Animated Universe is up anyone's alley, but Batman: Under the Red Hood is fantastic. Watched it a couple times this year and again tonight.

I still get chills during the climax.

I've been watching TV shows on Netflix. My instant queue currently has these shows lined up:
Pride and Prejudice (I think I haven't seen this version)
The Guild seasons 1 and 2
Blackadder series 1 (I just finished watching the first episode)
Blackadder series 2
Red Dwarf series 1

I also am completely caught up on Stargate Universe, although Netflix doesn't have season 2 - I watched those episodes elsewhere. I got to see the whole of Doctor Who season 4, which I hadn't seen all of before. I started to watch Farscape but decided I wasn't in the mood right then, and also watched one episode of the Catherine Tate show.

My younger daughter (age 15) has watched Invader Zim and Hey Arnold.

I'm reminded of things I've seen before that I'd like to see again, or things I didn't get a chance to see before, and finding many of them on Netflix.

Now I just need to get a device that will let me watch these shows on my TV so I can do other things on my computer while watching. I'm still in my one-month trial period, but I think I'm going to keep it.

Speed, I've seen "Between the Folds" a couple of times. The second time with my daughter who does beautiful origami. I just bought her Prof. Thomas Hull's book that was mentioned.

Anyway, I've been watching "River Monsters" both seasons. Now that is some intense fishing especially the Goliath Tiger fish form the Congo river

My wife and I really enjoyed "Doc Martin"

If you like old movies try "I Know Where I'm Going" with Wendy Hiller. Petula Clark had a minor role as a child. And "The Inn of the Sixth Happiness" with Ingrid Bergman.

CaySedi, any of the new generation game consoles will let you stream to your TV. The Wii is probably the lowest cost one. Pawn shops around here are charging less than $100 for them now.

Kwea: The pawn shop near us charges near retail prices. I would prefer to go ahead and buy new in that case. I'll see when I get my tax refund.
