ENJOY THE MOVIES
It's been about a month since we've had a decent dump into the Netflix Instant library, but we've got a whole batch of new titles for your enjoyment this week. There's definitely something for everyone, even people who like terrible movies such as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. There's a couple of ventures back into history, two great works from Baz Luhrmann, some decent flicks from 2010 and plenty oldies but goodies. As a bonus, if you're a Kevin Smith fan, you should probably check out his newest pseudo stand-up special Kevin Smith: Too Fat for 40. Otherwise, there is plenty new to enjoy. So what's in our queue this week?
It's that time again! As soon as 2010 came to an end and 2011 kicked off, a whole slew of new titles dropped onto Netflix Instant - so let's get into it. From Best Picture nominees like An Education to winners like Platoon, there's plenty for awards lovers. If you're looking for low-key indie gems you'll want to bask in the glory of Assassination of a High School President or Exam. Or maybe you'll just want to enjoy some classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey or catch up on potential 2010 Oscar nominees like Shutter Island. This time there is something for everyone and plenty to keep you entertained. So what's new in our queue?
What would your holiday break be without movies to pass the time and enjoy with your family? This week on Netflix Instant doesn't have a huge amount of variety, but there's still some great stuff. From a couple really great documentaries to one controversial faux documentary and some holiday comedies, the selection this time around isn't as plentiful as usual, but it should help keep you occupied amidst all the family meals, opening presents and holiday shopping. For an even larger selection of Netflix Instant titles, make sure you check out all of our previous installments of this special feature series. Now what's in our queue this week?
While it's most certainly the time for snow and shopping, this winter weather and busy season for the stores is reason enough to stay home and enjoy some movies curled up on the couch next to a roaring fire. That's why we're back with yet another batch of new titles that recently hit Netflix Instant. Remember, we're not looking forward to titles down the road anymore, but just letting you know what recently became available so you can watch right away. This way you're not stuck waiting for a film to arrive along with your Christmas presents. This week's latest new additions have something for everyone - so what's in our queue this week?
Since the news has been slow this past week and everyone is still on Thanksgiving vacation, we thought now might be the best time to pick out some new Netflix Instant titles for you to sink your teeth into along with some delicious turkey (leftovers). There haven't been a ton of new updates, but it seems like we have at least one pick for everyone's own tastes. There's a Best Foreign Film nominee, a sci-fi action favorite, a Sundance indie, and a feature length behind-the-scenes doc, plus even a holiday comedy. In addition, I've tossed in a few recent favorites to keep you and yours busy over the holiday weekend. So what's in our queue this week?
Looks like we unknowingly timed the return of our Netflix Instant feature pretty well since Netflix announced (via their company blog) that they're now offering a streaming only subscription service. Anybody who wants all the benefits of viewing movies via Netflix Instant, but doesn't want to deal with those pesky disc mailers can now join the club for a price. However, this new benefit comes with a bit of a downside for existing members. Since the streaming service is apparently good enough to stand on its own subscription plan, all of the other subscription plans will be given a price increase. See details on the new subscription costs below.
It's been months since our last update regarding the growing library of titles available on Netflix Instant, and for that we are dreadfully sorry. But we're back with a vengeance and a slightly different format. Before we used to highlight the forthcoming titles heading to Netflix Instant over the next week, but to make things easier, we're going to take a look back at the previous week (or some golden oldies) and let you know what's available to start watching immediately. This way you're not overflowing with eager anticipation, and we can make sure our fresh picks are available before we tell you about them. So what's in our queue this week?
Hot on the heels of the application update allowing Netflix Instant to be used on the iPhone/iPod Touch, here's a big update to let you know about the plethora of titles that will hit the library next week. The huge chunk of cinema comes courtesy of Netflix's deal with the cable channel Epix who has provided plenty of classic and recent releases for Netflix subscribers to enjoy almost anywhere. Just so everyone's aware, all of the titles listed below won't be available for streaming until September 1st, but there's so many of them we just wanted to get them out there ahead of time so you're prepared. So what's in our queue this/next week?
Well after months of it only being available for iPad users, Netfix has finally come through on its promise to deliver Netflix Instant to the iPhone and iPod touch this summer (even though school has already started, summer doesn't end until September). With the newest update for the Netflix app software, anyone with a Netflix subscription and an iPhone or iPod touch device running iOS 3.13 or later will be able to stream all available instant library titles right to the palm of their hand. The streaming is available only over WiFi and the 3G network. But also remember, every time you watch a movie like this, Roger Ebert cries on the inside.
As long as there's good titles hitting every week, we do our best to provide you with a list of new arrivals on Netflix Instant. The past two weeks haven't been worth an update, but perhaps that's because the people with Netflix have been busy securing a plethora of new titles for the streaming service. THR reports Netflix and cable channel Epix have struck an exclusive, multi-year deal which will give Netflix Instant a collection of new releases and library titles beginning September 1st. The deal, which is currently set for five years, includes a wide array of films from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM for your viewing pleasure. Read on!
Sorry for Netflix Instant being MIA two weeks in a row (honestly there wasn't a whole lot you missed), but our preparation for Comic-Con 2010 followed by the convention itself just took a whole bunch of time away from us. Anyway we figured you'd like coverage from all the kick-ass happenings in San Diego than a couple more titles to add to your ever-growing queue. But fear not, because we're back with a vengeance this week as a whole new slew of old favorites have hit Netflix Instant in nearly every genre you can think of. Thrillers, comedies, action-adventures and foreign films are at your disposal. So what's in our queue this week?
Hopefully the past holiday weekend allowed you to take advantage of some new Netflix Instant titles along with some great barbecue and some well-deserved time away from work because this week we've got another batch of fantastic titles to fill up your queue. Some are timely additions to the library while others seemed to have appear a couple days late (you'll see what I mean). But in the mix you'll find not one, but two franchise titles that begin with the letter "X", a couple of movies from Robin Williams, an enraging documentary for these economic times and one of the most critically hated films of all time. So what's in our queue this week?
