    So I just signed up for netflix and so far have loved it. But when faced with all the options I draw a complete brain fart on what to choose. Got Hot tub time machine and 500 days of summer, I threw a bunch of Scrubs and anime in my queue but am lacking in movie, any recomendations for movies to choose?

    I'm a fan of Stoner comedies, Documentaries, and some action.

    Try proper films like The Godfather, Apocalypse Now and Alien.

    If you want to stick to your tastes, try Office Space and Clerks.

    Half Baked, any Cheech and Chong movie. If you like metal music, try to find Metal: A Headbangers Journey. It's a pretty good documentary about the history of metal and the various types of it.

    Labyrinth
    Dark Crystal
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Indiana Jones (all)
    Shall we Dance (Japanese Version)
    Galaxy Quest
    Hot Rod
    Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift (I know its silly but I used to street race, and I love cars, in fact I think a car gets me more excited than a man does)
    Kung Fu Hustle
    Lord of the Rings
    Matrix
    (super hero movies like: Iron Man, Spiderman, Transformers, ETC)
    Full Monty
    and many more. :)

    It's actually not based on a true story. All of the quotes and excerpts from Ahmad Ibn Fadla were made up. Michael Crichton was making an entertaining version of Beowulf because one of his friends said Beowulf was boring. Unless Beowulf is based on a true story.

    And +1 for Pineapple Express. Also Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and I Love You, Man (see a pattern?), Clerks II

    Other great movies are Fight Club, Memento, The Prestige, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Dark Knight

    If you like dramas, "Doubt" is excellent and I believe it's on Netflix.

    sniper_rawb - I would suggest starting a new thread over at the Droid 2 forum. We'd be happy to discuss this with you over there. This thread is unrelated. :)

    Check out the show Coupling. It's like a British version of Friends...but funny.
