I'm trying to get all of the Starz Play movies that are on my queue watched by the 29th. I watched two tonight.

Frozen and And Soon The Darkness. If you have a couple hours to kill, do something else with them. These were two of the most boring movies I've seen in a long time. And Soon The Darkness is pretty much 1 hour of build-up, 15 minutes of an unsatisfying 'climax' if you will. Frozen is interesting and probably would've been better had there been likeable characters, but alas, I found myself not caring in the slightest and actually wanting them to die. Also (Frozen spoilers),
Spoiler


Anyone watch The Disappearance of Alice Creed? That'll probably be the next one I tackle.

Oh my god, I tried watching Hunt to Kill starring Stone Cold Steve Austin based purely on the fact that it stars him and my god, is it awful. I knew it was a B-movie, but this is just retardedly bad. I normally don't stop movies so early, but I'm just gonna chalk this one up as a loss and abandon it forever.

Ive had netflix since it first came out. I love the streaming and i hate the streaming at the same time... they move things and take things out of my queue for example and then like a month or two later the movies pop back up on my queue. Then another thing I hate and love is the tv series... they put them on there but dont keep them current. Sons of Anarchy for example they only have like two seasons and im pretty sure there are 4... Dr Who is frustrating too cause they havent bothered to put anoy of the next two seasons on there ( when i say dr who I mean the new ones not interested in the old ones ) Just watched The world of drunken master ... good moviie love the fight scenes!!

The Disappearance of Alice Creed is good. I've been trying to get people to watch it along with a zillion other quality movies.

It's hella frustrating trying to get anyone to watch anything on Netflix that didn't have mass mainstream marketing.

If I weren't so busy I'd love to start a blog of "awesome netflix movies you never heard of."

Do you grind up bluray discs to fit in that?


hahaha. I already know how to stream shit. But less tech savvy people need standard stuff. Else, I've have a digital library all set for them.

But that's the point. Nobody is gonna watch stuff on regular tv/cable if it's already available on netflix. "Do I wanna watch Spartacus Vengeance now or wait 2 years?" The networks gotta eat too. Every season costs money to stream.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Season 3 of Sons of Anarchy is on there. I doubt you will season 4 until a few months after the DVD/Blu Ray is out.

It did keep my attention, but not really in a good way. I was only in it to see the ending, pretty much, and it really wasn't that satisfying. Interesting premise, but poorly executed.

Ive seen the disappearance of Alice Creed I really liked it. I know what you mean when you say its hard to get people to watch things.. I love foreign movies and its really hard to get people to watch the trilogy Sympathy for Mr Vengeance, Oldboy, and Lady Vengeance. I know they are on the darker side but they are really good movies. Another excellent movie is Ichi the Killer... people just don't want to read subtitles or something I'm a self professed subtitle whore. I think people should really open thier eyes to things that arent just American there is a whole world out there why miss out.

I know that cable has to make money but i still think they shouldn't bother putting it on if they cant keep it current. For example when the series Heroes was huge the day after a new episode aired on TV Netflix would air the new episode as well. Both cable and Netflix used to do their thing and be able to both make money. Now you have to be content with whatever little tease they want to put on.

Amen brother.

What really makes blood shoot out of my eyes is hearing people say things like "There are just no good movies anymore, it's all remakes and sequels!" or "There is nothing good on netflix streaming!."

Bullshit.

Have you seen Oldboy? Castaway on the Moon? Wake Wood? I saw the Devil? Elite Force? IP Man? Red Cliff? Silmido? Chaser? The Ward?

watching Being Elmo. It's ing awesome. Though it says narrated bt Oprah Winfrey, it's not that bad. She doesn't talk much. But this doc is pretty sweet.

My wife and I randomly watched that two nights ago, was really really good.

Starz is pulling all content at the end of the day tomorrow. I listed a sampling of titles that will be pulled You can see all of the Starz titles on Netflix.com (I'm not typing up a list, there's 22 pages of titles). Netflix will be pretty terrible in March.

I alternate between pretty happy, and pretty frustrated with the Netflix streaming content. It seems like nothing note worthy has been added for months, and now they're losing more content. I was trying to find a movie for the kids the other night, and it was really tough, since they've seen about 5-10 of the decent kid's movies over the last 6 months.

REALLY hoping they step up their game, because they have a huge streaming customer base. Customer's might be annoyed enough to cancel. I'm starting to swing back to that side now.

Yikes. This is disconcerting to say the least. I was hoping by now Netflix would be adding more and more streaming content every day but this is clearly not the case. It is such an amazing service but it needs content.

My only (perhaps naive) hope is that Netflix has been holding back content in anticipation of the Starz loss. The updating has been sparse in the past 2-3 months, so maybe they're just holding a lot of it to release as a huge glut of content to counter-balance the loss?

I hope. God, I hope.

I doubt that, 007. I'm sure they are scrambling to either A.) renegotiate the Starz deal or B.) try and find another supplier.

I'm hoping they actually find a different company to deal with, maybe then we will see a massive influx of new content like we did last year at one point.

If they don't, I could see this as a major downfall for the company that really put instant streaming (into people's homes) on the map.

I'm also one of the people really hoping that they have something up their sleeve that they will roll out tomorrow or march 1st.

You answered your own question. HBO Go is in place, Netflix will never get their shows.
