Best Movies to Watch Instantly
« on: August 17, 2008, 09:29:26 PM »
I am currently in a temporary situation with no TV, only a DVD and computer. I need suggestions for movies that can be instantly watched on Netflix.

Thanks.

A bunch of Herzog and Fassbinder films can be seen through it.

Some possibilities:
1.) Chop Shop (a movie several people have been recommending lately)
2.) Millennium Mambo (one i recommend pretty heartily)
3.) Netflix has several of the Herzog films on instant watch
4.) Malcolm X comes to mind given the latest bracket verdict

I have around 150 movies on my Instant Queue. Most of them are separate from my normal queue :D

30 Rock is the best comedy on TV.
