How about you, EAP? Were you able to pick out any of the listed titles as something worth adding to your queue?
No. I have yet to copy and paste their titles into Youtube and find the ones that pique my interest.

Netflix doesn't exist to "sell you things" - it's proving access to thousands of titles, commercial free. And for a nominal monthly fee.

Why are you posting in a thread about a subject you're not even familiar with, and to condemn others for doing it " wrong".

Unless you have some titles to share from your netflix experience (which you've made abundantly clear that you haven't) please stop posting in my thread to derail it. You're more than welcome to start your own thread about the wonders of your movie reference books. This thread is about Netflix.

To everyone else - thanks for sharing all these great titles, I'm looking forward to watching all of the ones I haven't seen yet.
Great post.

Just watched London Boulevard - not everyone's cup of tea but we liked it.
I'm a big Benedict Cumberbatch fan too, and I started that miniseries but didn't finish it. Thanks for reminding me!

I recently watched Jekyll on Netflix. Another BBC miniseries, written by Steven Moffat so as a Doctor Who and Sherlock fan I was intrigued, and it was pretty good!

On Locate TV, you can plug in an actor's name or a movie to a search box and the name of the person or movie will come up. Click on it, then scroll down and it will tell you when and where it or the person is on TV. I think you can also subscribe for e-mail alerts on Locate TV.

Although not an indy film, Idiocracy is a good film quite a number of people have never seen.

Just watched the first episode and I am intrigued as well. I'll keep watching.

Yes, this movie is GREAT!! It is scarey and sad how much truth it contains. It's a good thing it was a comedy or else many people wouldn't have bothered with it. I've seen it a few times, but you reminded me that it is time to watch it again. Intelligent people everywhere - watch this movie and have more babies (I love the beginning) to help our country get back in balance.

Safe Passage (1994) - IMDb
The plot being a woman with lots of kids reminded me of another Netflix find - A Home of Our Own, with Kathy Bates. If ever you wanted to punch someone out through the TV screen, then that movie is for you. Not a dig on Bates, though, she's great in it - but the writer made her so damn unsympathetic with her draconian parenting. It is a great movie to watch if you were exposed to poverty in childhood, because this movie will make you feel like the Prince of Siam.

Idiocracy was a very good film, which I watched with my son - we joke to each other about it when we come across people through the course of a day who seem like the ones who will be our future. Far too few people have seen this flick.
