I think “Law Abiding Citizen” is on Netflix. It’s a great movie. Gerard Butler gets revenge.

Also, “A Knight’s Tale”. Young hopeful Heath Ledger fulfills his destiny as a knight- without the required noble background Great soundtrack, too.

Other than that, I’m not sure right now. I have the hardest time finding movies on Netflix! They never have what I’m looking for.

I watched “traffic” and “hotel Rwanda” on there recently.  I think they have “crash” as well which is really good.

I don’t know about favorite because if I don’t already own it, I tend to watch it and move on. But here are a few I’ve seen and liked on Netflix Instant:

  • The Flowers of War: Christian Bale hides out in a cathedral in Nanking, China with the cathedral’s students and a group of prostitutes during the Japanese invasion
  • The King’s Speech: you’ve probably heard of this one about King George’s stutter
  • Crash: I’m guessing you’ve also heard about this one about several converging timelines, racism, and misconceptions
  • Serenity/Firefly: Okay, I own these, but I’ll always recommend them. Firefly is Joss Whedon’s series about a future where Earth becomes overpopulated and other planets are terraformed to sustain life. The central characters are a group of smugglers on a spaceship following a war. It’s actually very grounded and almost a bit like a Western. Serenity is the movie follow-up.
  • The Pianist: Holocaust movie about a jewish Pianist in Poland
  • Clerks: a classic View Askew about a convenience store (think Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob, etc.)
  • Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog: Niel Patrick Harris is a lovable supervillian, Nathan Fillion is a pretentious superhero
  • Drive: This is one of those kind of brooding, silent movies that is kind of violent. Ryan Gosling is a stuntman who wants to save his neighbor and her son from her violent husband.

I’m actually watching Memoirs of a Geisha on Netflix right now, and it is one of my all-time favourite books, and one of my favourite movies too. It’s a tear jerker at parts.

Hm, other movies I like on Netflix would be Captain America (Chris Evans -drool-), Thor, The Hurt Locker, and Rat Race (hilarious cast).

The Decoy Bride – very cute chick flick, a famous writer and actress decide to get married on a dreary scottish (? I forget) island; in order to avoid paparazzi, a local becomes a decoy bride…

Shall We Dance – subtitled in Japanese, one of my very very favorite movies~ about a middle aged businessman who begins taking dance lessons.  It was remade in America but the original is superior ๐Ÿ™‚

Death at a Funeral – the original British version!  I’m fairly certain it’s on Netflix right now.  Another favorite.  Revolves around a funeral/wake being held at the oldest son’s house.  Was remade in America but the original is superior ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t think of two more at the moment LoL

@MrsWrangler:  Oh weird. I just searched it last night on my laptop and it popped up. I live in Canada, maybe that makes a difference?

This isn’t a movie, it’s a tv series… Disappeared. 

My husband & I have been watching one every night. Tonight it’s episode 6!

@futurepilotswife_:  I thought John Cusack was sort of sexy in Must Love Dogs.

@akirasan:  Ugh unfortunately us Canadians get screwed over by almost everything compared to Americans. But you can get the US version of Netflix – check out unblock-us.com. I did it!

@elysion:  I watched Decoy Bride because I love David Tennant.  Cute movie (even Darling Husband said so), but that hairstyle didn’t flatter him at all.
