ridicule was a wonderful movie.. (i don't know what other regular contributors here have seen it..
i saw it many years ago--when it first came out--one advantage of being in NYC is an abundance of movie houses that play a wide variety of films!--(even if i rarely go!)_________________________
my other obsession

Based on your recommedation, Alex, I've added Ridicule to my Netflix queue. Of course, it's at the bottom of a list of 394 items, so it might be a while before I get to see it. But the anticipation will be fun.

Sparteye, I hope you-all are not frequent Netflix users. According to an article in our paper a few weeks ago, it didn't take the company long to realize that they were losing money in postage as well as potential rentals of popular movies to people who request lots and lots of movies. So they started putting automatic holds on people who request, say, 3 movies a week, and also bump any requests they make for recent releases to the bottom of the list. Thus, if you typically request 3 movies a month, you're much more likely to get what you want when you ask for it. Some way to reward good customers...

I've never had a problem with them in the couple of years I've used their service. Of course, I don't tend to rent new-to-DVD films from them, but from the mom and pop's around the corner. All in all, a much better choice than the local chain video store, where the workers are unhappy and the management rude._________________________

Or to look at it from the other side: The majority of their customers are exactly the kind that order 3 movies a month, so they are also trying to best serve the majority of their customers rather than catering to the few oddballs.
I have a friend who has a Tivo just for Netflix. When he gets a movie from Netflix, he records it and then sends the movie back the same day till he fills up his Tivo.

Whatever Netflix's shortcomings, it's the best thing to ever happen to movie rental here in the Valley of the Shadow of Blockbuster Video. I love the way you can search by genre, director, actor, language, etc. And by the way, you can always bump, er, move a film to the top of your queue by renumbering it #1 over on the right side and then click on update queue.

it's on the left side on my queue; or, you can click the "move to top of queue" button, which is over on the far right.

I've never had a bit of a problem with Netflix. They even sent me a replacement DVD this week before I'd returned one which arrived broken.
And it's the only way I'll ever see many films and TV shows.
