Re: Netflix: Show Calendar?

I've lost a few movies I had sitting in my Que because they apparently expired. Kind of crappy too because I wanted to watch those movies (eventually).

Re: Netflix: Show Calendar?

thanks to MC Chris:

new to netflix april 1st:
barton fink - not only one of my favorite cohen brothers movies but one of my favorite movies of all time. i took a group of friends to the fine arts theater in chicago to see it on my sixteenth birthday
death wish 1 and 2 - i really don't need to explain why these movies are awesome
the fifth element - luc besson can do no wrong. even when his movies are bad, and this is NOT an exaple of that, they stil are fun. he's always making new movies and producing. vive le work ethic!
muppets take manhattan - my third favorite muppet movie after great muppet caper and muppet movie (fuck the new movies.) this movie always triggers recollecitng traumatic event for me. i saw it alone at the liberty theater in libertville, and my mom forgot to pick me up. but the bicycle man who always drove around town on his bicycle with a bunch of flags on the back, stopped and took me inside to call my mom. i later heard he drove a bike because his wife was killed in a car crash. although that could have just been suburban myth
the running man - the skits on part sixe parts one, two and three are based on this movie, and in those skits we actually set up mc chris foreverrr!
the terminator - just a great movie, before the sequels came out this was thought of a scary as fuck movie that you were lucky to watch as a kid because it was so hard R.
last chance to watch:
sunset boulevard - one of the best movies ever made.
pet sematary - not one of the best movies ever made but still fun. so this one at the liberty theater in junior high with a bunch a friends. i miss my old theater and i'm glad it still stands. visited it last year and it smelled the same! love those old smells and the memories they trigger.

Re: Netflix: Show Calendar?

Expire warnings are placed besides titles in our queues online 2 weeks ahead of the expire date. Checking the queue at least twice a month is needed to avoid ''where'd that go'' syndrome.

As for Netflix no longer providing expiring title data to third party sites like instant watcher.com & feedfliks.com, the stated alleged reason ( from the site's founders) was that NF's competitors were using those sites to track what was due to expire, and go after it, resulting in higher than previously acquired renewal fees if NF wanted to retain them.

Re: Netflix: Show Calendar?

I just found out that with some jiggery pokery on the PS3 i can get access to, and watch, netflix USA, and i have to say, it's a 1000 times better in content than the stuff we get on the UK version of netflix.

And now that i have seen what the US version has i could not go back to the UK content.

Yep, you can watch any Netflix content from any area if you just know right tricks. But dont completely ignore UK-region. There have been some good movies and series that are only available in UK and not in USA.

I dont know if I would pay for Netflix if I only had access to local Nordic Netflix. And I think that Netflix knows it so even if they dont officially support region-switching, they dont really do anything to block it..

There's no more queue for instant, it's now "My List," but choosing it from the menus on top (it's listed under "Watch Instantly), will bring it up in one nice list, with a "notes" section to let you know when it'll be disappearing off instant. Likewise, if you have a DVD plan, going to the DVD queue will sometimes let you know if a title will become available for streaming in the next few weeks.

As for Netflix no longer providing expiring title data to third party sites like instant watcher.com & feedfliks.com, the stated alleged reason ( from the site's founders) was that NF's competitors were using those sites to track what was due to expire, and go after it, resulting in higher than previously acquired renewal fees if NF wanted to retain them.
From a business standpoint, I can understand that. As a consumer, it's frustrating.

I'm even more frustrated, though, that they aren't revealing upcoming titles as they used to. Reddit usually seems to get wind of it first, but the sites you listed were good sources before they made the change.

If you're on Facebook, the Netflix Facebook page reveals titles once they are added (for instance, their page yesterday trumpeted the return of Mean Girls). Beware, though, that you'll also get their holiday themed postings and when one of their original programming (such as House of Cards) becomes available, they post on that several times throughout the month.

I knew about YJ, but not about the rest of GL or Batman: Brave and the Bold. I was annoyed last year to see that they were added, but only to a certain point. It took them a full year to add the rest. There are a few episodes of both I've been wanting to re-watch.

Season Two of Venture Brothers is up. That was by far my favorite season of the show. It was never quite as good after that.
