I think there is a good selection, I stream through my ps3, but use my computer to search, seems to be more. I love 70s biker movies, check out chrome and hot leather, so bad its good. Another biker movie is called cycle south, kinda of old version of some adventure rider movie.

We really are enjoying the offerings on Netflix. I'm just disappointed that they'll have one movie in a series (i.e. the Bourne trilogy) but not the other(s). And while I guess I understand that a lot of the classic films of past decades won't necessarily have a huge attraction for their audience, it does seem odd how few of the films from the past are there. There is so much pure crap from the past decade that they carry when compared with award-winning films from the past.

Of course, I don't run Netflix so who am I to criticize the fact that they only carry two seasons of The Avengers and one of those features Tara King. I mean really!

This is an intereting thread that helps satisfy some suspicions about Netflix Canada.

Half the titles you folks are listing aren't available here.

Every title I've ever searched is "Not Available".




I'll be canceling soon.
