I just joined Blockbuster Online (free two week trial) and I've only got 127 movies in my queue.

Any suggestions of anything I might not have seen (indie, older, classic, or anything else you like) are welcome.

How many movies do they send you at once? I figure 127 would be plenty for two weeks...unless you plan on keeping your membership.

Army of Darkness
Snatch
Boondock Saints
Serenity
Tombstone


LeCZends can provide you with a whole list of awesome martial arts flicks.

I'm keeping the membership.

I've seen all of the ones listed except Secondhand Lions, Collateral, and Lock Stock.

Snatch is one of my favorite movies, though, so maybe I'll have to get LS&2SB next.

Snatch is a poor attempt at a copy of a great movie. Still decent, but it pales in comparison.

I just watched Smokin' Aces. Even I thought they used the F word too much. Good movie overall though.

Ghost in the Shell

Start with the first movie... if you like it, move onto the remaining movies and to the two seasons of episodes...

It is a bit of an acquired taste, even for sci-fi. Here's what's in store for you:

Japanese animation, english voice over (well done)
future society where network computing is the back bone of all productivity
humans can be augmented with computers inside their heads
humans can be converted into combat androids, retaining their humanity
lots of special ops stuff
lots of counter insurgency stuff
lots of gun play
one guy that likes to use a revolver in a world dominated by semi-auto's

The comments about the "American Empire" just need to be dumped in the willfull-suspension-of-disbelief bin

good stuff

My recommendations

Just did a dump from my netflix rental history & picked out the good ones:

BTW: Drop BB and go with Netflix -- much better in my opinion, I've never been ass-raped by Netflix like I have been with Block Buster sometimes.

Das Boot [go for the director's cut; 4 hrs = good, 6 hr mini-series in orginal German = better, 2 hr original release = selling yourself short]

Stranger than Fiction [surprisingly refreshing for a Wil Ferril movie]
Breach
Extras:
V for Vendetta
Syriana
Fun with Dick and Jane
Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: (7-Disc Series)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: 2nd Gig: (7-Disc Series)
Brick [excellent modern film noir, even if set in high school... very edgy]
Memoirs of a Geisha
Gosford Park
Easy Rider
The Blue Max
Fly Boys
The Sand Pebbles
Mosquito Squadron [this movie was the inspiration for Lucas' attack on the Death Star]
Von Ryan's Express
Doom
Love Actually
Wedding Crashers
Drunken Master
Sin City
The Legend of Drunken Master
The Merchant of Venice
The Phantom of the Opera: Special Edition
National Treasure
The Butterfly Effect: Director's Cut
H.O.T.S. [blatant t&a fest]
Reform School Girls
The Notebook
Key Largo
Judgment at Nuremberg
The Magdalene Sisters
House of Flying Daggers
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Hero
Myths and Logic of Shaolin Kung Fu
Raising Helen [bonus points because they mention Lutherans!]

RKO 281
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Plan 9 from Outer Space

Watch Firefly (The series) before Serenity

Excellent, IMHO
