Netflix is a tricky thing, there's a lot of crap you have to sift through before you find something worth your time. If anyone wants to share any good finds on netflix this is the place to do it

Here are some movies I thought were really great that I found through Netflix:

Mysterious skin
Dog Town and Z-Boys
Jeff Who Lives at Home
Dandelion
C'est Pas Moi, Je le Jure!

There's probably a lot more that I can't think of right now those are just the ones that came to my head.

I was happy to find Rampage on Netflix. Not sure if it's still available as I gave up on Netflix a while back.

I've been browsing around Netflix a lot for the past bit, and there isn't an abundance amount of good movies. Many have switched their IP to get the American Netflix, but I have not. Nonetheless.

Winter's Bone was a fantastic movie. Don't like the name fool you. Definitely, love Jennifer Lawrence now.

There's plenty of older movies, but I'm sure most of them are recognizable:

Taxi Driver, Fight Club, American History X, Requiem for a Dream.

I like the dark stuff, not really into the fart comedies or eye candy type movies(chick flicks?) that fill up the majority of Netflix. Not a big fan of Action pack movie because the outcome is always the same. Anyone can recommend me something?

What's good? The US version of Netflix which you can get - see the link below.


Back in September 2010 when Netflix first launched in Canada, there was about 7,500 titles available to Canadians. At the same time, the US had over 20,000 titles.


Since the majority of Canadians are unhappy with the much smaller library that they have access to, Netflix has tried to manage their reputation and has stopped releasing its title counts. Although it’s nearly impossible to know how many more titles the US Netflix has compared to the Canadian Netflix, it’s been estimated at between 3 and 10 times bigger.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Even the Canadian version has lots of content, although they need a better user interface to find it all.

Queen of the sun is a documentary on bees, bee-keeping, and why bees are so important.

Netflix is good for foreign movies. If you want to watch new released movies in 720P or 1080P, XBMC/Navi-X is where its at. I have watched Argo, The Hobbit, Stolen, MIB III, Sky Fall, The Looper etc. just recently. Way better than Netflix.

Hank Moody is the man!

If you got American Netflix watch Workaholics and Archer is your looking for quick 20min episodes.

As for movies it's always been mediocre films, but Donnie Darko is prob one of the best on it

It sounded interesting, but it's one of the most boring documentaries I've ever watched. I gave up about 45 minutes in, because it was all over the place. Little information about one person, their life, and on to the next random person. Everyone know that they were going to be filmed, and just kissed ass. Same with "Joe" Who looked disinterested throughout the whole documentary.

Saw someone watching this, might check that show out.

I can't wait until my new laptop comes in and I can hook it up to my TV so I can finally stream that without lag :D

Still netflix is nice, for $8/month can't go wrong, plus the $5 I pay for American netflix.

There is a cheaper way. I paid $55 for a year subscription from another site.

I've been enjoying Dollhouse.

Mel Gibson's 2012 flick Get The Gringo is surprisingly good.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis
