    I don't know.

    I just thought I would suggest it for the inmates here. I assume they don't limit their movie watching to only what is on Netflix.

    But yes. A brilliant brilliant movie. One I unashamedly cried while watching.

    I've been hooked on some of these BBC crime dramas. They're not movies, but each episode is movie length.

    Foyle's War
    Wallander (the new one with Branagh)
    Bengzton
    Copper

    This movie makes one reflect on historic gurus.

    Good movie.
    Been recommending it to fiends.

    I found "Better off Ted" to be a cutting satire of corporate America.
    It kind of made it difficult to take my own job seriously.

    My son turned us on to Ted, great show. Especially the episode where they "deal with it!", not to mention the "artificial" beef project. :lol3

    "War of Arrows".

    Sort of a "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" combined with Akira Kurosawa style type Bow and Arrow warrior awesomeness.

    4 out of five arrows.

    Waltz with Bashir - This is the story of an Israeli army veteran who is trying to put together some missing pieces from his military past, specifically a Palestinian civilian massacre that occurred 20+ years prior, which he cannot remember. The entire film is animated, but it is very well done. 4.5 Uzis out of 5.

    I watched "Butter" after a recommend on this thread. Definitely worth watching, funny, good plot, good actors.

    Cabin in the Woods! By Joss Whedon! It is not your typical kids get killed in the woods sort of horror flick. Quite clever, worth your time.

    I might need to re-watch that show. It is a bit like two seasons of Office Space. Damn funny.

    Great movie, saw in the theater (it was playing at a huge cinema and my friend and I were the only ones there at an early showing), and bought the DVD.

    My warning is that you'll feel like crap after watching it but will be glad that you did, think Hotel Rwanada.
