One of the things that makes the Netflix experience work so well for me is that it is an easy way to get to movies that I otherwise might not remember. At a brick and mortar store I am confounded by the array of stuff I don't want to see, and I can never remember what things I've read about that sounded interesting. With Netflix if I read somewhere that someone thought the world of "Grosse Pointe Blank" I can add it to the queue and in due time it shows up. This works a lot better for me than simply downloading something would. Unfortunately I can't recall where I heard about "Grosse Pointe Blank", because if I could I would go back to see what else whoever it was recommends. Solid cast, funny, some explosions, but not too many, great soundtrack-- Joe Strummer did the incidental music-- what's not to like?
