If you haven't seen Santa Sangre yet, it's incredible.

Thanks so much for continuing to compile these! It is a really great resource...

Yes, thanks for the invaluable resource! I just added TAPEHEADS to my queue. Love that one.

As always a really great mix of films that I might not have otherwise thought to look for on Watch Instantly. Thanks again for posting these.

Dan-Shamefully, I have not, but it is topping my instant queue right now.

JR, JD, DtVC: I really really appreciate the kind words gentlemen! It really has become a fun little exercise to comb through the Netflix Instant listings to see what weird and wonderful stuff they've made available. Such a neat phenomenon to have such oddities out there and easily accessible!

Great stuff, Rupe!

If that's the Hercules movie with a character named Pucchi the Dwarf, it's a fun, fun film. I haven't seen it since high school (circa 1990), but it provided me and my friends with plenty of 'iniside joke' material for years. I actually quite liked Strange Days - at least when I saw it in theatres. I'd like to revisit it. Angela Bassett was all kinds of tough in that one.


You're Netflix Instant continues to be much more interesting that the Canadian version.
