Just ordered a Roku player. We have been getting disks from Netflix for years. Watched a couple of movies on the computer and it was ok, but rather play them in the theater room.

Looking forward to it.

Cool. I'm hoping this thread brings out some beauts. (watched Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and it was great).

I just finished watching Cry Freedom, again, and I still enjoyed it immensly. Defiance is another film based on a true story and also excellent. Also watched The Proposal this week and we all had a good laugh at it.

...BTW, I have Mongol in my queue and just noticed it's flagged for removal from 19 Jan so I'd better watch it soon! (watched Mongol 4+)

Got netflix for Christmas so I think I'll try this out on the PS3. It looks like between this and Hulu on the PS3 I can cancel cable - just need to find a source for bbc so I can watch top gear

MI5. British TV at it's best.


Anybody else enjoy "Justified"? US TV at it's best.
