    I'm starting this Netflix thread for our community to share and recommend movies that Netflix subcribers can check out on instant streaming. I can't count how many times I would have missed out on a good flick if it wasnt for a recommendation from one of our memebers. Please excuse me if this thread has been done before. I did some searching and didn't seem to find anything.

    I'm currently hooked on Breaking Bad instant streaming :thumbsup
    I highly recommend these few that I've recently watched
    - A Better Tomorrow (Crime)
    - Dylan Dog (sci-fi)
    - Troll Hunter (Fictional documentary)
    - Limitless (Suspence thriller)

    So let's hear what we should check out!

    For a long while there it was the only thing on there besides television shows and B movies.
    The selection is getting slowly better.

    I watched Ironclad the other day based upon someone's recommendation. Not a bad movie at all, and James Purfoy and Brian Cox are in it.

    What is IronClad about? I watched a goofy 80's flick called Dead Heat that was recommended by a member here. Its about two over the top cops trying to solve a crime but early on in the process one becomes a zombie lol

    A fantastic series I can't recommend any more highly most folks may be already familiar with called Spaced was recently added to instant streaming, this series was the creative brainchild of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes.

    This show is well known for it's flurry of pop culture references, tight pacing, fantastic cinematic direction, characters and story. This show shifts flawlessly from absolute hilarity to genuinely heartfelt and it's a love letter to twenty-somethings everywhere.

    I can't say enough good things about "Ink." It's a low budget film with a solid story that is sure to give you man tears.

    Here's the trailer:
    Ink Official Trailer 1 (HD) - YouTube

    I loved it so much I ordered a DVD signed by the director.

    Ironclad is basically about the upheaval in England after King John signs the Magna Carta. John basically tries to take revenge on those who forced him to sign it, and a group of men try to stall his advance long enough for the French to show up and kick John out of power. It's pretty much "The Seven Samurai" or "Magnificent Seven" in 1215 England.

    Peep show is a great show - but it did take me a while to get into it - I think it was like halfway through the second season it sold itself to me with one line - "She knows about cubits, she's not comfortable in her own skin, she's one of me!" I laughed so hard I almost coughed up a lung.

    I'm not sure if it's still on netflix or not but I recommend Black Books to anyone - UK comedy show.

    I've been catching up recently on:

    BONES
    Breaking Bad

    And while apparently none of these are streaming anymore I also enjoyed

    The King of Kong
    Enron: The smartest Guys in the Room
    Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

    Nick Swardson's pretend time... and he has a stand up on there too I believe.

    I'll throw my hat in with... "High School of the Dead." Anime Zombie series about a bunch of high school kids trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. Fairly gory, a little bit of nudity, but it had some interesting characters. Best of all it has all the episodes available and you can ge through them all in a couple of days if you are bored.

    I'm watching it right now. I just watched the US version. The Swedish version is truer to the book. The US version depicts more violence.

    A couple that i enjoyed:

    "Fearless" with Jet Li
    "Little Big Soldier" with Jackie Chan

    Both are period dramas for those looking for something to sink their teeth into.

    'Spartacus', both seasons.

    'Angel'A'

    'Not Quite Hollywood, the Wild, untold story of Ozploitation'

    'Let the Right One In' scared the hell out of my girl and I. We started watching it at like...1am on a Saturday night after a few drinks.

    Their 'MST3K' selection is quite good as well.

    There are more. Can't remember at the moment.

    I like L&O: SVU, that's still on TV too though. I'm more into the dramas. Police Dramas in particular. I will say this, I have gone through and watched a lot of Aaron Sorkin's work. Sometimes you have to watch where the feet fall to be sure to not miss a step :lol

    I prefer some of the older B&W movies. There's a certain feel to them that is missed in today's stuff.

    Holy fudgin' hell! I just got a message saying you are only allowed to stream one movie at a time!!!!! WTF!!!! I've been able to stream to multiple devices at the same time so I called tech support. They say that the 1 device thing at a time was instated at the end of 2010 and that I've been quite lucky to have streaming on all devices. Netflix sucks.
