The guy in charge of the selection needs to be fired. I realize It's only costing 9 bucks a month for instant streaming but damn. Couldn't they at least put a few things on there that are somewhat well known?
I feel like I'm digging through a box of DVD's at a flea market.

Really? I've never had a problem with the instant streaming selection. Unless you're looking for big-budget movies like Transformers 3 or something. I guess it's a matter of taste, but there are a lot of independent and niche titles that I like a lot on instant streaming, and plenty of great foreign movies I never get to see anywhere else.

The TV selection is pretty stellar. I don't think the movie selection is too bad either. I get my money's worth with the TV shows though.

Yeah the TV shows tend to be alot better.
If you try looking for any movies that actually made some money at the theater you won't likely find them on Netflix.

If you like The Office watch Parks and Recreation. Season 1 is just decent but season 2 and 3 are awesome.

Lol as I said the guy in charge of the streaming department is Reed Hasteings the Founder and CEO of Netflix good luck firing him.

I agree with grenworthshero I have found plenty of good movies to stream like the first two Lethal Weapons and Maverick. Not to mention a bunch of Star Trek including the 2009 movie, and a bunch of the tv series. Also I have seen stuff like The Mask and Toy Story 3, Blues Brothers, and Superman just to name a few more.

I dont know what you are expecting Link79 but there are a bunch of good movies there and even a whole lot that I havent mentioned. As grenworthshero you arent going to find the big blockbusters like Transformers 3 or Harry Potter and if thats what you are expecting maybe you should switch and get discs instead of streaming.

I'm currently insanely addicted to Lost. The entire series is on instant streaming, so if you, like me, managed to miss out on this the first time, prepare yourself for some of the best storytelling and acting in the history of television.

Lost is my favorite show ever. Down right amazing.

I'm about 7 episodes or so from the end. Even if the end disappoints, it'll still easily be the greatest television show I've ever seen. Season 5 absolutely blew me away, and even though I'm not quite as enthralled by the more-philosphical Season 6, it's still brilliant. Just finished Richard Alpert's backstory and it was one of the greatest things I've ever seen on TV. SUCH a good show!

@ Tasuki
I know i shouldn't expect the really big blockbusters on Netflix but a few halfway decent movies would be nice.
Most of the popular movies you mentioned I already have on DVD. I did find Mrs. Doubtfire on netflix so that's a good one.
I also watched the new Star Trek movie which I absolutely loved and I'm not even a big Trekkie. It was great even for non fans!
I noticed Tron Legacy was recently added so I might check that out.

They just added the TV show 24 to Instant. If you want something action-packed and insanely addicting, 24 is for you. First 5 seasons are brilliant. The rest? Eh.

Vampire Diaries is actually a pretty good show. I was not expecting to like it so much.

My friend wanted to watch Gremlins with me last night...but no, not available. New movies that just came out I can understand, but older movies like the example I just mentioned, yeah...it's kinda ridiculous. >.>

You make it sound like it's as easy as picking movies from a list and making them available for streaming--it isn't. There are contracts and deals involved that take time and money. And if you honestly can't find any movies to watch you either have bad taste or aren't trying new things. Don't just look for stuff you know about, browse around and give a totally unknown movie a chance. I found so many gems that I never would have seen if I didn't have Netflix.

As for what I'm watching now: Being Human. Watch it. Although seeing as how this is a UK based site most of you probably have.

I find that the super-popular movies most everyone has already seen anyway are not on there, and I'm fine with that. Movies like Gremlins and E.T. are not going to be on streaming, and that's why it's so cheap. Streaming is kind of for movie buffs who have already seen all the "obvious" selections and are looking for niche titles.

Skyline is now instant streaming. One of the best bad movies of our time.
