"The streaming movies are either... 85% (or more) 'B' movies, movies already seen 2-3 times (on the theater/rented/multiple times on free TV) that will make you hate yourself for wasting your time streaming them then fast forwarding them, then deleting them."


Actually it sounds, I think trksh22 was more right, "hmm, well it looks like you've got super high standards or watch wayyy too many movies"

I have high standards?

hmm... I would say you have LOW standards, if you think more than 15% of the STREAMING movies are worth watching or even watching again.

Thanks for the RSS feed links. I didn't realize that they were available. I am hesitant to sign up for the new releases one though. I kinda like how the other sites lay them out. Esp IW, because it sorts by genre at least.


I'm just curious what category Kazaam would fit into?!

My standard may be low, but you're the one who said, "The only movies that are are worth seeing again or seeing for the first time on the streaming RSS are the Cary Grant, Barbara Stanwyck (she's hot and a great actress in the 1930's/1940's), and probably 3-4 other movies. "

You sound like you may have more restrictive standards than I do loose ones. :)

I won't bother looking through the 15,000 movies to see what percent I think are worth watching -- But I have 381 in my queue that I feel are worth watching and all have a 3.0 or higher rating.

Nothings wrong with low standards, after all, I'm paying for them! :D

ETA: Someone needs to step out of his comfort zone, you might just find a movie you like! :lol:

Depends... on you ...
I saw LESS than 5 minutes, on free TV, back in the 90's (and probably 2-3 times again) and simply changed the channel.
Do you think the 5 minutes are wasted? what about 15/20 minutes. Can you watch it without fast forwarding it?

I'm definitely paying for the "by mail" feature. The streaming is free
(the way I see it, and probably the way Netflix/Roku DOESN'T want you to see it).

Haha, I was just kidding. I barely remember watching it as a child. It's not even an option to put in my queue though because I know I'll never watch it. I have too many other movies that I wouldn't normally watch - but plan on watching someday - to even think about giving Kazaam another try.

- Those are not my restrictions those are the movies on the STREAMING RSS are worth watching or watching again. If you think
more than 15% on that list are worth watching/streaming, GOOD LUCK!

I think it's only fair for you to post your queue for us to critique it/tell you what you're missing!

umm... "worth watching" is subjective, so therefore it is your standards. The specific quote I used, you said there were only 3-4 movies worth streaming.

And yes, I have 381 titles in my instant queue.

I don't mind sharing my queue... Not sure how to do it easily, but here's my RSS for it:
http://rss.netflix.com/QueueEDRSS?id=P1 ... 1428121229

You'd need a reader to make it readable though. I share this queue with my wife and son, so I understand that not everyone will appreciate Thomas & Friends. :)
