After staring blankly at an 80-strong Instant Watch queue for an interminable length of time, it's easy to cite indecision and re-watch every available episode of 30 Rock.
Believe me, I've been there.
If you're anything like me, your queue probably consists of 20 Should-Have-Seen-By-Nows, 30 Classics, a handful of Heavies, and a whole lot of flights of fancy. It's easy to wonder why all those great films you really want to watch are only available on DVD, and consider unsubscribing in protest.
That's where netflixstream comes in. Its subtitle, "Fun Crap on the Netflix Stream Thingy" is idiosyncratically trustworthy. Though only started a few days ago, the short-and-sweet recommendations paired with blurbs are the perfect way to shake off your inhibitions, drop your conscience and its repentances of "but I ought to finally watch The Third Man!", and see how you fare. You can also submit your own recommendations.
In their own words:
Netflix streaming has become one of the greatest collections of outsider/independent movies since that VHS video store that closed down in your neighbourhood 10 years ago.
It's hard to find the good gems over there. This site may help you with that.
What are your Netflix recommendations?
