    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! :huh

    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.

    Netflix is about all I watch now. Here's a list of some of my favorites:

    Red Cliff - this is a war movie made in China, it was really good.
    Exit Through the Gift Shop - documentary, supposedly on street art, was really good.
    The North Face - cool climbing movie from Germany
    Battlestar Galactica - they have the new series. Never thought I'd like this but really enjoyed it.
    Pawn Stars - Have the first two seasons
    American Pickers - only first season, pretty cool though
    Firefly - cool sci fi series
    Top Gear - multiple seasons
    Boondock Saints 1 & 2
    Gangland - multiple seasons
    National Geographic Explorer - lots of different topics
    Gonzo - Hunter Thompson documentary
    Timerider
    Kelly's Heroes
    Taras Bulba
    Arn, the Knight Templar - some cool Swedish knight movie
    Apocolypse Now
    The Good, the Bad and the Wierd - another foreign film, pretty good though
    Hamburger Hill
    Zombieland
    3000 miles to Graceland
    Japanese Story - seemed like a chick flick at first but was good
    The Stoning of Soraya M. - glad I don't live in Iran...
    The Siege of Firebase Gloria
    Hombre
    Duck You Sucker
    A few of the Dirty Harry movies are available

    There you go.
    Start a streaming adult video chain.
    Maybe call it "Skinflix"
    There's probably already one out there.
