Netflix and Amazon are horrible when it comes to announcing new content and informing you about expiring content. In fact neither company hands out any specific info when something will be leaving unless you seek it out yourself. Imagine if you knew about a movie expiring that you loved but never realized was on streaming. Wouldn't you watch it? Wouldn't that encourage you to keep Netflix? Instead I'm in this limbo state of always prepared to drop the service as soon as I don't see things I want to watch. A customer should want to stay, not be ready to leave.
New To Instant Streaming
It's pretty simple when it comes to a classic like Ghostbusters. Watch it. Right now. At school, work, crowded bus? I don't want your excuses, just start streaming this one right this instant. Ghostbusters still holds up incredibly well as a wonderful comedy about the macabre. For me, this is Bill Murray's best.
Another classic joined Netflix just days ago. From the Coen brothers this dark comedy is even being turned into a television show now. Just like Lebowski you'll find people absolutely dedicated to this quirky comedy. I hate to admit I've never seen Fargo but now that it's available I'll be watching it very soon.
|3. Forrest Gump|
I know several people who say Forrest Gump is their favorite movie of all time. While it isn't the same for me this is a fantastic movie and complicated story told in a wonderful way. Try and go through every little bit of Gump's story in your head, or explain to someone who hasn't seen it, and realize how well this movie told that complex and intricate story.
|4. The Italian Job|
This remake may not be as good as the original but it is a fun watch. This isn't your classic heist film but there are some memorable scenes and plans that I'll still sit through this movie to see. Nothing you need to see but sometimes you need some fun with film.
|5. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels|
A film directed by Guy Riche and Jason Statham's film debut. We follow a group of friends causing havoc and committing crimes in somewhat of a dark comedy. Another movie you should really see since we don't really get crazy crime stories like we did in the 90s. At least not with this kind of brutal violence mixed with comedy.
