    Check out Exit Through the Gift Shop - a great doc on graffiti artists It's available On Demand.

    The Kids are All Right is also really good. Great music, acting and it really nails the complexity of relationships.

    Are you talking online streaming or Mailed? The Online library has really expanding over the last couple of months. I've really gotten into catching up on TV Series I missed during there runs. 24, X-Files, MI-5 (best thing on TV right now), Dr. Who.

    The best part of Netflix it will make suggestions based on movies and TV that you like. Just spend 10 or 15 minutes rating movies/tv that you've seen and Netflix will make suggestions, specific to you.

    I just finished watching The Pillars of the Earth"- its a made for TV movie and it has eight episodes- I loved it. It's 12th century England so it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really recommend it.

    Though it's not a Netflix movie, I highly recommend "The Butch Factor" documentary, esp for the guys on this site, who tend to be perceived as masculine by society.

    The documentary makes several points including: 1) We were raised with the definition of "masculinity" to mean the opposite of a guy who is attracted to another guy - placing all gay men, regardless of appearance, in a conflicting place. The conflict is resolved if "masculinity" means being honest, doing the right thing, being self-convicted and confident, facing adversity with courage, etc., which is a more accurate description in the first place and one which serves as a worthy and sustainable aspirational goal.

    Also, 2) Whenever one posts an ad or makes reference to "masculine only" or "no fem", we are further marginalizing a segment of our sub-group and reinforcing societies' prejudices against all gay men. In fact, if the definition of masculinity includes concepts of courage and self-conviction, the non-masculine gay men - those who couldn't "pass" as straight from a young age - are probably more "masculine" than those who were able to be perceived as straight.

    Oh and - yeah - there's some good view in the film as well.

    The documentary runs for about 50 mins and is available anytime online at www.logoonline.com. Search the site for "butch factor' and the movie is there.

    Sorry for a long post off topic, but the reference to the documentary segued into something I've wanted to highlight to the site.

    I just got a blu-ray player that's supposed to stream directly to the TV, but I've been unable to get the Netflix queue to show up, Anyone have any experience with this that could give me some tips?

    You'll need the instructions for your specific unit. You need to sync the unit to your account. There should be some sort of set-up screen that will show a code number. Log in to your account with your computer and enter the device code. Assuming that your network connection is made correctly (I had to add an extra ethernet switch inside the stereo cabinet).

    Everything appears like they're synced up. I activated, deactivated, activated again, but I just get the screen that says "please add to your instant queue", and I've got 4 in there. Not thrilled. Thanks for the response.

    I also agree with "Amelie" and own it! However, it is a subtitled movie (unless you are fluent in French) in case that bothers anyone. "Lagaan" is also subtitled, a musical, crazy long and awesome.

    I have seen "The Butch Factor". Great documentary, I saw it with my ex and as we were watching it he said "Let's work out." Haha!

    I have also seen "A Walk to Remember" Awhile back, it is a tear jerker!

    I just finished watching "La Mission," Great movie! If you ever wondered what it would be like to be a gay latino in a overly hispanic area then you should see this movie. (Or a sexy black woman)

    If you have a really kickass sound system (such as a Bose) and want to have your guts pounded from the sound effects, watch 2012...again.

    Moon was phenomenal.
    I watched all the Futurama movies over the last two days, shows hilarious.
    Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog = One of my favorite no budget movies ever. Made during the writers strike a few years back by Joss Whedon.
    Shutter Island was pretty good, mindfuck.
    Ace Ventura. Do I need to explain?
    The Crazies was pretty scary/fucked up.
    District B13 a French film thats just action the whole way through, like a badass video game.
    The Signal is a fantastic horror movie that is split up in three parts and takes three different characters perspectives as a deadly TV signal makes everyone insane.
    The Butch Factor was a pretty good documentary about masculinity in the gay world.
    Paranormal Activity. Good if you don't want to sleep anymore.




    .....yeah I spend a lot of time on Netflix.

    I just finished Damages (series). And highly recommend it if you're into the investigative/legal drama with great twists.
