If anyone wants any more Mystery Science Theater recommendations (as far as Netflix Instant goes) here are some truly great ones. (Fair warning...I prefer the Mike era to Joel.) In approximate order of awesomeness:

  • Laserblast
  • Werewolf
  • The Beast of Yucca Flats
  • Pod People
  • Soul Taker

Those are some good ones (I'm a Mike fan as well). I'll add a few more of my favorites.
1. Eegah! (Possibly my all time favorite)
2. Final Justice
3. Teenagers from Outer Space
4. Phantom Planet
5. Devil Doll

And I'll throw in a Future War for good measure.

Oh man, yeah. I don't know how I forgot Devil Doll. That one was phenomenal!

Eegah was also pretty great, and Future War. Thanks for reminding me...I now I want to rewatch them.

AVATAR THE BLOODY LAST FREAKING AIRBENDER
Watch it .

The movie, or the show? I haven't seen either, but I heard the movie was horrendous (from most people, and also some critics, both of whom I tend to disagree with) I and I heard it was good from some people I actually trust, who haven't seen the show.

The movie is awful, period. Not only does it kill everything about the show but it doesn't even tell a competent story. I honestly can't see how anyone could like it. The show, however, is fantastic. WATCH IT.

Just to tell you how bad the movie is they dont even call it Avatar: The Last Airbender right there I should have known it would be awful.

Actually, they probably didn't call it Avatar because of that OTHER movie called Avatar, with the blue smurfs. But I did manage to watch the movie finally, via Netflix, and I thought it was actually pretty good. It's not great, but it's not horrible. I don't understand why people were so upset over it. I haven't seen much of the cartoon, but I don't really care how faithful it is to the show. It's NOT the show. It's a movie, and as a movie, it was...decent.

You don't understand. The director pretty much straight up said that he did not give a damn about the show because it was a cartoon. He decided that he could do whatever the hell he wanted with the characters and story because they are fictional 2D characters that don't mean anything to anyone. He's wrong and a moron. You know what the best part is? He thinks the steaming pile of idiocy that he made was better than the show.

If you're going to make a movie based on something, you have to be a fan of the work itself and want to do justice to it. This guy couldn't care less and it disgusts me.

Just check the website. Films and TV shows are cycled in and out of the Instant Stream service so the only reliable way to know what's available at any given time is to check the official site.

Ugh, so that's seriously all they have? Maybe twenty films per genre? Well, not really worth my time then. Thanks a lot, man, saved me money.

The thing is if you are just going to get Netflix for streaming only you are going to miss the big picture. Personally I suggest get the one movie out at a time deal and go from there. Usually the only time I stream movies is when I am in between rentals and I want something to watch.

Also there streaming selection for some genres are small but the have a ton of that genre available on disc. Like Japanese Anime for example they have a few worth while throught streaming like FMA and Trinity Blood but they have a good selection on disc.

@Splat: Yep either that or I stream movies that I am on the fence about and not sure if I want to blow the 20 bucks on them. I streamed GI Joe from Netflix and that right there saved me 20 bucks lol. RIght now I am streaming Triple H's movie The Chaperon. If its any good I will probably go pick it up than.

Thanks. Looking at their FULL selection, I might actually be interested in starting a Netflix Membership.

I will most likely go with the discs, since I mostly just want a movie that I can play at my leisure.

Ah, well, in that case you can disregard all the links people gave you above; those just list the films they have for streaming. If you want discs, then you pretty much have no limitations. Some new releases have a delay of a few weeks before they are available through Netflix, but, yeah, if you want discs, just assume that any movie you could conceivably want to see is available. Because, pretty much always, it is.

@Mickeymac - I just got done with the 30 day free trial and had no problems what so ever, I was just saying if you are on the fence about getting it I would recommend doing that.

@LoopyLuigi - I thought season one of Heroes was great season two was decent and after that it just got worse and worse.

Ok?? You can stream movies any time you want. As long as you have a PC, PS3, Xbox, Wii or some other streaming devices.

A good movie my family watched a while ago is The Fall. VERY artsy movie, don't watch it if you aren't in to that kind of thing. It's one part Where The Wild Things Are and another part Second Hand Lion.
