    I’m talking about your favourite films here, not a television series like Breaking Bad etc. so what do you recommend?

    If you’re using Hola on Chrome (and why would you not be…) then End of Watch on Canadian Netflix is a great film

    I’ve no idea what that is tizzzzle??

    All I Can (a bit like Lifecycles on skis).

    Safety Not Guaranteed, like wot i raved about on the last netflix thread. Also the two Mesrine films are brilliant (the life of a french gangster). Agreed, End of Watch is great.
    Myn Bala is worth a watch for the scenery as much as anything – it’s a fairly run of the mill plot but i enjoyed it.

    That’s all i can remember from my free month – i’m trialling Amazon prime (evil though amazon is, i know) this month and their streaming collection widdles all over netflix (mainly world films, not many hollywood blockbusters – i’m now a korean revenge-thriller addict) to the extent i may pay for prime as i won’t have exhausted it in a month

    Hola is a add on for Chrome that fools Netflix into thinking you are in the country of your choice. It basically lets you access the USA / Canada / Denmark etc etc versions of Netflix which have diiferent libraries of content. Eg. Swedish Netflix has Dark Knight Rises.
    100% safe and legal. Netflix apparently do not mind one jot.

    BTW, the best EVER series is also on Netflix – Stargate Atlantis

    Tucker and Dale Vs Evil
    Cabin in the woods
    Nick and Norah’s infinite playlist

    If you can get US Netflix I cannot recommend the history of future folk enough, if the chap up there who liked safety not guaranteed would probably like it.

    Another earth is good.

    I’ve not watched it yet but a film called hell comes to frogtown, which sounds interesting…

    There aren’t many good films on Netflix 🙁

    Kinda enjoyed Lilyhammer tv series, Netflix do well for boxsets.

    ^^ suggestion noted, cheers. I vaguely remember hell comes to frogtown from years ago. Not enough to opine on it though. After They Live, Rowdy Roddy Piper can’t do much wrong in my book,

    Summer rental.

    The wife is currently wading through Breaking Bad. I enjoyed the 1st series but lost interest after the episode with the little kid with drug addict parents; it all got too serious for entertainment.

    I disagree.

    There certainly aren’t many well known (i.e. mainstream) good films, but there’s a boat load of cracking stuff, it’s just quite difficult to find!

    Between netflix and lovefilm, i’ve watched some movies (particularly foreign stuff) that I would never have come across before.

    Install Netflix Rating plug in for Chrome. When you load up the netflix page, it superimposes the IMDB and Rotten Tomato ratings over each movie. Indispensable

    It’s worth looking at the documentaries. I watched Dirty Wars last week about the somewhat dubious American Death Squads at work assassinating people in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Fascinating, and scary stuff!

    God Bless America is the best film of the past few years IMHO. It’s utter genius!!!

    Planning on watching A Band Called Death tonight, which looks great!

    It just needs your DNS numbers changed to access US Netflix via PS3 –

    You’re welcome! Made paying for Netflix worthwhile imo.

    Amazon prime is ok for films, but the boxsets/TV series are really where the value is in Netflix.

    Movie-wise, IP Man is well worth a watch too

    Watched a film called Iceman last night which I enjoyed and like the sound of those two French gangster films Mesrine and may watch the first one later

    I watched dead man down last night. Pretty good.

    Loads of good stuff on Netflix IMO – as long as you keep switching countries.

    I use a paid thing called Unblock US to do it with Apple TV – makes switching really easy. Not sure if there’s a better way.

    Ok its a kids animated film but it was good fun none the less.

    ‘Jack Reacher’, loved it.

    On a side note, the Netflix interface has just got a bit more annoying. Looks like the ‘My List’ feature has just been taken off, despite being full of stuff I was looking forward to watching. Grrrr!
