Red was also...okay...if you're in the mood for a 'lifetime' type of movie.

It stars Brian Cox.

P2, a good little thriller that happens to be set during Christmastime, is on Watch Instantly so this time of the year is a good time to watch it.

Check out A Perfect World, which I had never heard of...stars Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood (who also directs). Great movie.

(For anyone who does not know the story on this, on DVD these were split apart as two separate releases - Planet Terror and Death Proof - and the fake trailers were relegated to Bonus Features status, so "Watch Instantly" is the one of the few ways to see Grindhouse again the way it was actually released theatrically).
I recommend Grindhouse, too. I saw it when it was playing in theaters, and I just watched it again last night.

By the way, I'm pretty sure that Machete is the only fake trailer on a Region 1 DVD. It's on Planet Terror. The other fake trailers aren't included.

Superbad is back up, or maybe it was never taken off after Dec 3rd.

Sometimes NetFlix gets an extension on the online rights to a particular movie and the expiration date is updated.

I don't think NetFlix shows the expiration date on a particular movie until it's only a few weeks away. So it may possibly have one, but it's far enough out that it doesn't show up on the site yet.

Interesting, but I guess that makes sense. Watching Them right now on instant watch, definitely worth checking out.

Bottle Shock is now on their HD list. Nothing spectacular, but it is a new release.

Re: NetFlix "Watch Now / Watch Instantly" - Recommendations Thread

Brooklyn Rules is a movie that I never would have seen had it not been for "watch instantly" and I am glad I did. Much better than I ever thought it would be. It had a million chances to take the cliche road and did not.

It is a coming of age drama set in the mob era 1980s in Brooklyn...it is NOT a mob movie.

I highly recommend it.

Amazing Stories - Season 2 is available on Watch Instantly.

And episode #16 "Family Dog" is a must-see for animation fans because it's the 1st thing ever directed by Brad Bird (of "The Iron Giant", "The Incredibles", and "Ratatouille" fame).

"The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film" was a pretty good doc on early 80's/late 70's slasher movies. If you are a fan, I would recommend it

"Crazy Love" is another pretty good documentary about a man who threw acid on his girlfriend, went to prison and they reunited upon his release.

On Watch Instantly is a good one for horror fans: Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, a faux "reality show" styled film about an aspiring serial killer that references a lot of horror movie conventions.
