Noteworthy New Arrivals to Netflix: Week of March 9th, 2012

Thought this might be something you guys would enjoy. I'm always defending Netflix to my friends and pointing out the new stuff, since Netflix does a horrible job of promoting their own content.

Sure you can just go to instantwatcher.com and scroll through the list, but I thought a filtered selection might be worthwhile.
  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension - Underrated 80s sci-fi batshit crazy epic.
  • Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who - LONG and solid documentary
  • Assassination Games - Some new Jean Claude Van Damme actioner
  • Back to School - Classic Rodney Dangerfield comedy
  • Bad Lieutenant - Harvey Keitel naked time
  • The Boxer - boxing
  • Che
  • Cheech & Chong: Get Out of My Room - weed
  • Doctor Who: Season 6 - best sci-fi on TV

  • Slumber Party Massacre - Tits and violence
  • Swashbuckler - fuckin' James Earl Jones as a pirate

Thanks!

And I remember Jeepers Creepers being pretty enjoyable. That was a long time ago though.

I loved, LOVED, Jeepers Creepers until the final act, and even then I thought it was decent. I just loved where I thought it was going far more.

Damn, I purchased Luther season 2 from Amazon about 2 months before it got released to Netflix. Should have held out a little longer.

Saved by the Bell was just added. I'm wondering if I can make it through the series.

Thanks, but your filter needs some tweaking. It let the WWE stuff through.
