Netflix Recommendations

If a mod wants to remove this thread that's fine with me

Crap.. I did a search before I made this to see if there was a thread, nothing showed up.. Then I tried a second time and it did... I apologize!!!!!

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only Canadian with Netflix, as so many people think it sucks.. While it is quite limited compared to the US, there are still quite a few good movies. I spent 3 months in bed after a surgery on my back, and feel like if I didn't have Netflix, I would have gone mad!!!

So what are come of your Netflix recommendations?

I'm a documentary lover myself.. Though I do love a good comedy or action flick... Here are some of my favs on Netflix Canada:

- The Union - Business Behind Getting High (actually a Canadian film)
- Exit through the Gift Shop
- Modify
- Generation Rx

I really could go on as I feel like in the 3 months I was in bed that I watched nearly every movie in the Netflix library, but I'll stop and let others add.

By the way, did you know Canadians can access the whole USA Netflix library, and it's super easy!! I wrote about it at the following link: http://chrisburke.ca/2011/08/14/cana...s-netflix-usa/

"River Monsters" (and just released, Season 3)... not your average fishing show.

For the record, I've tried Hotspot Shield many times (including again this morning) and it does NOT allow access to Netflix.com for U.S. content.

I actually posted this thread, then found the other one and posted it there, and asked if a mod would just delete this one...

Did you read my thread.. The top part of my thread...The part where I apologize... Where I said "I did a search and nothing appeared, so I created the thread, then did another search and it did appear.... Thanks for taking 2 seconds to actually read it before posting though..
