    To append to the above, it looks like they have some of the Roger Moore and Brosnan films, as well as On Her Majesty's Secret Service. So I guess this means Netflix made up with Sony pictures.

    Now the bad news: the search function on Netflix streaming, at least for the AppleTV, is back to crap. You can no longer search by genre, cast, etc. anymore. Only by title again.

    Science Fiction films:

    Event Horizon
    The (original)Andromeda Strain
    Planet of the Apes (original, and apparently none of the sequels)
    Strange Days
    Barbarella
    The Final Countdown
    Pi
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    Slaughterhouse Five
    eXistenZ
    The Crow
    Rollerball (original)
    Lockdown
    Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan (Which cannot be found in search under Star Trek, but only under "Khan")

    Apparently, Netflix has unfixed their horrible search function.

    I thought eXistenZ was underrated, not necessarily because it was that good but just because the plot seemed so unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Same with Eternal Sunshine.

    along the same theme, Punchdrunk Love, just the way it was directed, the dialogue, sounds, etc, I remember it being like nothing I'd seen before. Totally didn't like it the first time 'round, but it's grown on me.

    The Matrix struck me as a dressed up version of eXistenZ. I remember debating a friend of mine who thought Matrix was about the most original thing he'd ever seen, while I thought it was highly derivative (but still great).

    It also has a lot in common thematically with Dark City.

    ...and The Thirteenth Floor, which is not as good as any of these but is still entertaining, and most importantly: Gretchen Mol.

    I visit Shell Beach, CA frequently and it always reminds me of Dark City. Great movie.

    Just learned this intriguing tidbit about Dark City from IMDB:

    bump. Sick of typing in classics I want to see only to discover they aren't available, don't have time to wade through the garbage.

    At least they have Battleship Potemkin now.

    I can't find anything on Netflix. I just go through the categories and scroll through the 25 or so selection before it loops. Apparently you could watch trailers for a movie on Netflix but I think they took that away.

    Let's share some tips on how to use Netflix. I'll start. When you look at DVDs you can save them to the Queue. They have the same feature for instant movies, only they call it a "list." Also, instant means streaming. So for a quick reference queue=list and instant=streaming. I'll post more tips as I figure it out.

    She loved the drama of it, but I don't believe she cared much for Jenny's character.

    We are taking a break from Buffy at the moment (season 5) and are getting caught up on Angel. :D

    Just saw flight. Very good movie. Amusing how much of a douche Denzel is in the film. Loved the hotel room scene toward the end.

    Side Effects is also a very good movie.

    Question, since the redesign, anyone have trouble rating films? I can't seem to do it.

    Season 5 of Buffy is one of the strongest of the show's run, with Episode 16 ("The Body") being one of the finest hours of TV I've ever seen. Seasons 6 & 7, after the move to the new network, were really mediocre. Angel is good, but it never quite resonated emotionally the same way Buffy did, even though it was a darker and more complex show.

    I agree on 6 & 7. Have already warned her that she's in for disappointment, but she's determined to finish them.

    I personally loved Angel. Wesley was one of my all time favorite tv characters. He had an amazing story arc over the show.

    Angel automatically gets a pass despite a lot of questionable shit that was pulled during its run (resurrecting Spike?????). And the reason is because of the episode "I Will Remember You".

    Currently watching CLient 9 about the fall of Eliot Spitzer. Very amusing to see Richard Harald's wife featured as one of the escorts. Suprisingly, things get very interesting when the action shifts to Albany.

    I thought Client 9 was a very interesting story. Really gave me new found respect for Spitzer.

    Really? I finished that movie thinking he was a bigger twat. Great he slayed giants but to be so stupid and arrogant not to remember he made plenty of enemies and keep his nose clean really grinds my gears. Anyway, I found Kenneth Langone to be a riot, the guy truly enjoyed watching (helping?) Spitzer trip over himself.

    Totally reasonable to think he was a turd. I suppose I just do not care about someone's sex life and I think it really has no bearings on who they are and what they stand for and their ability to carry out their responsibilities effectively. While prostitution is illegal, I really am not opposed to it and feel like it should be legalized and regulated. Also, one could argue that seeing a high dollar pro versus having an affair is keeping your nose clean. Anyway, Preet Bharara is doing an ice job as AG too, so it's not like Spitzer was irreplaceable.

    I also liked that Spitzer was willing to speak to the filmmakers on record and was willing to be candid. That is pretty cool and pretty rare in the world of politics.
