Ha--I was excited to see Black Belt Jones as well. I even watched it last night. I forgot how silly that flick was. Love it.

Can't wait to re-watch Cleopatra Jones. And I must finally watch the ABBA movie.

I recently joined the Instant Play world of Netflix and love it! You're lists have been invaluable. Question though.. how do you find them? I've tried using the "New To Instant watch" feature and get the same titles as I've been seeing. Please let me know your secrets! Thanks.

Wow, great to see STRAIGHT TIME on there! I've added that to my Instant Queue. Thanks for the heads up!
