The Battleship Potemkin (Bronenosets Potyomkin)

director Sergei M. Eisenstein's masterwork remains a cinematic landmark

Animated Sci-Fi with very interesting "Image" and a plot that keeps you entertain, Even if is kind of predictable at the end, Actually the whole thing but is fun to watch none the less.. .

Steel Toes - Jewish lawyer (David Staitharn ) is appointed to the defense of a skinhead accused of murdering an indian man. Quite enjoyable but I wouldn't go full 5 star.


Gangs of New York. Daniel Day Lewis, Leo Dicaprio, Cameron Diaz, John C Reilly, a plethora of others. Just noticed that it was available.

As a lark I put on The Spy Who Loved Me last night. The kids loved it and I enjoyed watching it again. Pure fun and what's not to love with a Lotus sports-car that turns into a sub, sharks, a side-car torpedo and JAWS!?. 4*'s easy

Almost all of the seasons of Top Gear are available now. Seasons 2-9 were added to the more recent ones. I am in heaven. There are a handful of individual episodes that are DVD only (which you can find on the internet anyway) but the very large majority are all streaming.

Interstate 60

Fun, wierd, funny road trip movie. Guy goes across the country to find a girl he saw on a billboard. AMAZING supporting cast. Gary Oldman, Christopher Lloyd, and Chris Cooper with an awesome appearance. It's quirky, and starts off weird, but if you stick through the first 20 minutes you will love this movie.

Came across a good motorcycle road trip movie called "one week" Not to give too much away ,but an average joe finds out hes dying. He buys a 73 norton and rides across canada. Had some funny parts, but a movie that made you think about life. Not something I usually like to do in a movie, I watch movie to escape reality, anyways check it out great scenery cool bike.

9th Company, it's like a Full Metal Jacket or Jarhead but for the Soviets in Afghanistan.

That is one of my favorite movies, and waaaay under rated.

For a 5* movie see Zulu. The sound is stunning!

A quick side note, netflix plus an XBox 360 is an amazing combination with quality just like cable

I hooked it up to my old 20" CRT which is a year older than me and it looks amazing
