I just signed up for Netflix. My queue includes...

G.I. Jesus
Hotel Rwanda
The Business of Being Born
Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore?
Rescue Dawn.

I will review as I receive. Does anyone have experience with Netflix? Is it good? I'll add my two cents soon.


  1. Prepare to have your live changed. Netflix is fantastic. You can also watch for free online on a PC. This is great for our family, because my partner rent the movies we both want to watch, and watch online if there are movies that only one of us is interested in.

    The turnaround time is kind of spooky-good. I can mail a movie on Monday and have a replacement on Wednesday (but we're close to a distribution center). I still go to my local store because I want to support them (locally owned, very good vid store) -- and with about the same frequency as I used to -- but Netflix can't be beat in terms of available titles.

    We get three at a time. I love it.

  2. PortlyDyke! I have missed you. I know about the turnaround time. I signed up on Thursday and received my first movie on Saturday. Wow! I got Quincenara first, and it was great. I highly recommend.

  3. It's been a while since I used netflix, but I loved it. The only problem I found was finding time to watch all the great movies! More recently, I used Blockbuster online, and I liked the fact that I could return movies to the store and get a free in-store rental. However, their catalog was not quite as vast. My turn around time with Netflix was longer (I'm probably further from a distribution center). I have a feeling you're going to love Netflix.
