Sorry if it was posted already but I everyone should check out "Exit Thru The Gift Shop" a great documentary on street art and about the man who filmed it.


Exit Thru The Gift Shop is excellent. Definitely in my top 5 for films last year. You can also watch it through Hulu at the moment, however, they only have it in SD and you have to pay up for their shitty Hulu Plus to get the HD now.

Another excellent art documentary is The Art of the Steal. After watching it, you'll never think about wills in the same way, or how - and i'm sorry to say this - Philadelphia is run by a bunch of assholes.

Scrubs is up! I feel oddly compelled to watch them all via instant streaming even though the DVD's are not even 20 feet away from me.

Season 8 was okay. The first few episodes of season 9 were okay. You'd do best to stop watching at the end of season 8. The last two episodes (My Finale, part 1 and 2) were just.. perfect.


Agreed. I didn't even bother with season 9 as the ending of Season 8 was perfect.

Hmm... I am wondering if ER will ever hit Instant? Wouldn't mind catching up on that show.

BTW..finally finished the first season of BSG. Wow.. very intricate stories.

Am I the only one who didn't love Exit Thru The Gift Shop or even think that it wasn't that great for the matter? I liked it for what it was, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that wasn't already in to documentaries or street art or documentaries about street art and I definitely wouldn't put it in a movie of the year category like so many did last year.

Adding, but probably will never get around to watching, That 70's Show, Scrubs, and the last season of 24.

Nope. I didn't care for it much either. It was interesting, but when it deviated from Banksy I began to lose interest. The entire Mr. Brainwash bit wore thin on me, especially since so much of his work seemed to copy so many other modern artists.

Again, that was the point Banksy was making. How the modern art scene is all about hype and people going out to be seen etc. moreso than the quality of the art or talent of the artist.

But yeah, I do agree with Indignate that I wouldn't recommend it to my friends who aren't into documentaries, indie films, art etc. as I don't think it's a very accessible movie for the average Joe who isn't already interested in those things.

I have to agree. That part really pissed me off and made the movie fall apart.

It does seem like a movie that doc and indie people would enjoy more than anything.

I don't know if it's been mentioned but I highly recommend the Korean movie "Chaser". It's being remade here in America. Catch it before they screw it up.

Good reviews also from the likes of Roger Ebert.

If no one has done it lately, pop on "Silverado". Great flick from the writer of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

By the by, has anyone been having issues viewing WiN on PC lately? There seems to be a problem with my Silverlight plug-in that I can't fix.

Well, get in your HD Criterion watching in. Seems Criterion is leaving Netflix instant streaming and heading over to Hulu. Plus side is SD is now free (Yay! Goodie, bad news is those who watched on their computers/PS3/Xbox/etc. will not have HD included anymore. Still not paying for Hulu Plus.

Edit: I made a mistake. SD won't be free for Criterions at Hulu. Another reason to be pissed off at Hulu. What a dumb move on the part of Criterion.

Same here. They were supposed to have them at least a year ago I think.

Been watching a lot of Prison Break. While I hate Brett Ratner, the show is very addicting. Lots of "yeah, whatever" moments because it's definitely got Ratner's stamp on it, but still a very enjoyable show.

Anyone know if Life On Mars ends in a cliffhanger or unresolved? I know it was canceled and I don't want to bother if it just abruptly ends. I've hard it was good though so I'm curious...

That's a fucking understatement. It's very obvious they had to throw something together at the last minute when they found out they weren't getting a second season. It's better than ending on a cliffhanger, but it is way out there. As a whole, I liked the show a lot.

anyone have a good starting point for the x-files? Not really wanting to watch 9 seasons of it but defnitely want to watch some of them. Should I just start at the beginning or is there a good place to start later on down the line?

I would always start shows at the beginning incase I got hooked and wanted to see all of them. My fiance just finished the all seasons of it.

Definitely start from the beginning - some of the best episodes are in the first season. Plus, it lays out the mythology of the show. If you are going to skip anything you should skip seasons 8 and 9 (after Mulder and then Scully were no longer series regulars).

Yeah don't even bother with the last couple of seasons. I think one of my favorite episodes is from the first season, can't remember the name of it, the episode reminds me of "The Thing". Mulder and Scully go to some remote outpost in (I think) Alaska and some sort of parasite is infecting people and making them crazy.

I liked the first season, but couldn't bear to watch anything after that.

I've been watching a lot of 3rd rock from the sun and scrubs, and my wife has been watching tons of the cosby show, who's comedy, surprisingly, still holds up.

I just got Netflix via free trial and I got it streaming through my X360, but I was wondering, can you stream it via 2 X360's at the same time, or can you only be signed in one at a time?

Should work on 2 devices at the same time--could get buffering issues depending on how much bandwidth you have etc.

Only issue I could see with 360 is it requires a gold account--not sure if you can be signed in on 2 360s at the same time. If you can, it will work (or if you have 2 gold accounts in your house).

Otherwise you could stream on 360 and another device like a laptop or Roku box etc. at the same time in different rooms as long as nothing has changed since the last time I've done that.
