Usually it feels like I've already seen everything worth watching on Netflix streaming, but somehow tonight I hit the jackpot!

1776 the musical, featuring KITT from Knight Rider as John Adams!
Memories; you may have seen clips of it in the most awesome amv of all time!
Being John Malcovich
The Shawshank Redemption (well, I guess everyone in the world has probably seen it already, but it was fun to watch it again)

While I have your attention may I also recommend The Dinner Game?

Do you have any streaming recommendations?

We actually own 1776 >.<.
Errr the last awesome thing I watched on streaming was Let The Right One In. Possibly the best vampire movie ever made.

I am not sure how to interpret that >.< ... is it a wince because you feel you ought to act abashed about your ownership of the film so as not to incite my envy? In which case I must inform you that it was utterly ineffective.

Vampires? Yesss! *queues*

Hah, I saw it in Drama. I don't think I ever watched a movie for Chuck's class? I only remember using the gym at the LNC on rainy days. And getting hit right in the uterus during a game of dodge ball I wasn't even a part of :P

Amelie is on my top-10. First movie I rented when I got back from Japan (had zero intentions of seeing it in French with Japanese subtitles).

I have been meaning to watch Harold & Maude for a while now!

I just saw Charade for the first time recently. At first, I thought it was a Hitchcock movie I hadn't heard of before, but, as the director Stanley Donen said, "Why should Hitchcock have a monopoly on this kind of film?" I highly recommend it.

This is a TV series, but it's better than TV - "Slings and Arrows," a Canadian series about a theater troupe that was shown on the Sundance channel. I stumbled on the 3rd season DVD set in the library, and I couldn't stop watching it. It just kept getting better and more interesting as each of the characters developed through each of the six 45-minute episodes.

My favorite film is probably the original (Ernst Lubitsch) version of "To Be or Not To Be," with Jack Benny and Carole Lombard. Lubitsch's protege Billy Wilder directed "Some Like it Hot," which I'd be surprised if you haven't seen yet.

I don't know which of these are streamable, but they're worth it even on VHS.
