I didn't even know that Stranded was on there, I also have never heard of that film either.

Adam talked about it some after seeing it at Sundance 2008, Filmspotting ep. #195. It's on Netflix Watch Instantly.

Anyone know off-hand what (if any) other 2009 movies besides Stranded are available on Netflix Instant Watch?

I looked, and couldn't find any.  But you can stream Sita Sings the Blues--

I just read the plot synopsis to that film. I need to see this.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

9. The Girlfriend Experience (B)
Is that the lowest you've ever rated a Soderbergh film?

Nope. Solaris got a B-. Ocean's Thirteen also got a B.

B- for Solaris? Well, Mr. Mouse is getting a little bit critical...

That's a very generous grade for Solaris
