    Netflix's website pre-signup election is misleading. It makes it look like complete **** but it's got some decent stuff if you sign up for the free trial. The TV shows include Breaking Bad, Prison Break, The Office, Heroes, Firefly, Dexter and Spooks. There's a few good documentaries in there as well. The film selection however is lacklustre at the moment.

    My biggest complaint is the lack of HD to people with connection speeds 'under 5mbps'. I don't think I've ever reached such speeds. Is it my fault? I don't know. I have little trouble streaming HD content from other services. It just looks like complete **** on normal quality. It doesn't even have half decent (non-HD) quality for the content I've had a look at.

    Lovefilm's better, though I guess Netflix is more concerned with streaming.

    So I was casually watching Layer Cake again, as you do, when all of a sudden holy **** that's Tom Hardy! My adoration of this film has gone up even further.
    thanks for the suggestion. Layer Cake it maybe tonight

    The Sin City style superhero film with a noticeable overabundance of attractive women? What did you not like about it? It was a fairly medicore film. Whenever I think of The Spirit, I think of Sin City and how much of a superior film that was by comparison. I really like that style of film making though. The only other films that come to mind with that style are Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Watchmen and 300 (to some extent).

    Now watch some Lynch for a much more sublime blowing of the mind.

    Anyone tried Netflix out for the PS3? Must say, it's pretty good so far. I've used it in America and it is amazing there so I can't wait until it properly lifts off here.

    Whenever someone recommends a Lynch film, they should always add a disclaimer in their post. :pierre:

    The selection is not terrible, there's a few really good movies in there. Watched Super Size Me last night for the first time in like 7 years. Proves me right, fast food eaters are suckers.

    That's the one. Was expecting something of a similar standard to Sin City, which is definitely a better film in every department. I think the script of The Spirit was the worst thing though - absolutely dire... It is a style I enjoy watching also, just haven't had any experience apart from the two mentioned. Will have to source out the four you've mentioned (I really should've seen 300 and Watchmen already ).

    Except that it looks really cool, and it has Samuel L. Jackson dressed as an SS Colonel.
