    Anyone have any good netflix movie suggestions ? Here's a few that I watched recently that are worth a look

    1. Mayor of the Sunset Strip - Documentary about Rodney bingenheimer KROQ DJ and his life . Sad story but pretty good movie , especially if your into Rock music

    2. The wild and wonderful Whites of west Virginia - not a movie about racists. Its about a crazy ass family in West Virginia and its made by Johnny Knoxvilles company and worth a watch if your into crazy people

    3. Exit through the gift shop - Documentary about street artists such as Banksy and Sheppard Fairy. This is a must see if you're into art

    I was on a documentary kick for a bit. Two that I found to be quite good:

    Touching the Void: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0379557/
    Man on Wire: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1155592/

    I love watching television shows via Instant Queue. It's how I found out about and caught up on Dexter, Lost, Prison Break, Coupling, Californication, and Top Gear


    Those are 2 must see's as well especially Touching the Void. I keep hearing about Dexter, I'll give it a shot

    Introduced several friends to Dexter and all of them are hooked. Ironically, I'm still not fully caught up on the series. I finished the first two seasons via Instant Queue, but haven't watched further than that. I share account with distant family so I don't receive the DVD's myself. [​IMG]

    The early seasons of Dexter are quite good.

    'The Talented Mr Ripley' is a really good movie

    Cold Souls w/ Paul Giamatti
    Restrepo...I had high expectations going in...still decent but not quite as great as i would have thought.

    tokyo story


    If you liked Bronson you should check out the director's other movies. Specifically, the Pusher trilogy. Tokyo Story is, without hyperbole, one of the greatest films in the history of the cinema. You should also check out Ozu's Good Morning, Late Spring, and I Was Born, But...

    ozu's films are difficult to sit through, but afterwards they make you sit down and think

    Jekyll. Contemporary, British retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Complete story is told in 6, one hour, episodes. It's brilliant and one of those hidden gems that everyone should see. Netflix has the whole thing up for streaming. [​IMG]
