I’m behind the times.
After seemingly both the wax and wane had passed, I jumped on the Netflix wagon a week ago. I signed up and started my month trial of the streaming option. First impressions were fantastic; I could watch it on my computer, on my Xbox 360 and on my Windows Phone. The first movie I picked was also a doozie – Momento (great movie, watch it if you haven’t already).
This pastÂ weekend, I had some free time, so I went trawling through the IMDB top 250 for another movie to watch on Netflix.
Fight Club – DVD only.
Let’s try… City of God. Nope, DVD only as well.
Oh, The Usual Suspects looks interesting. Oh, not available for streaming either. Darn.
Pan’s Labyrinth, The King’s Speech. Not available, no. In Bruges, no.Â Same forÂ Magnolia. DVD only for Gran Torino, Hotel Rwanda and Into the Wild.
At that point, I decided to cancel. Bye, Netflix. That was a brief encounter.
