6. Those too.
Netflix's documentary selections alone are worth the price of a minimum sign up.

3. A few instant movies I liked:
The Orphanage

Goya's Ghost

Blow Dry

Michael Collins

Butterfly

Word Wars

Greenfingers

Nature: Pale Male

I like Killing Flies


Happy watching! I am actually thinking about downgrading my account and buying a Roku since I seem to watch a lot of instant movies. I especially like documentaries, and they seem to have a lot for instant viewing.

7. The two seasons of the UK series "Life on Mars."
Not the US version, the UK was the first. I'm just finishing it up, and it's brilliant.

11. I'm two episodes in.
Really good. At one episode a week, It'll keep me till summer.

Then there's the follow up: Ashes to Ashes - whenever they decide to release it in Region 1.


For the original poster's list: Let the Right One In.

12. "The Man From Earth"
From the wiki entry:
"The plot focuses on John Oldman, a departing teacher who claims to be a Cro-Magnon (or Magdalenian caveman) who has somehow survived for over 14,000 years. The only setting is in and around Oldman's house during his farewell party, with the plot advancing through intellectual arguments between Oldman and his fellow faculty."
