The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons
This thread is for movies on netflix.ca. Please restrict your recommendations to that service.

Edit: It appears the database for instantwatcher is not correct.

My listing (instantwatcher) says it is not available. Can someone confirm? They did recommend these "HOT" titles though.

Reservoir Dogs
The Hustler
The Way of the Gun
Bowling for Columbine
Johnny Dangerously
Diary of a Nymphomaniac
Battle of Los Angeles
Red White & Blue
High Art
The Andromeda Strain

OK I will assume instantwatcher is wrong or stale. I am also assuming you are accessing with a Canadian account and IP. Can you check the added date?

I'm not sure how to check the date added on Netflix.

On this site that tracks new items on Netflix I don't see it being added since March 8th, so it must have been added prior to that.

Trying to think of some less famous titles for you all (with genres). All great movies in my opinion (I'm sure many will disagree):

Mind Bender/Thriller: Frailty
Dark Comedy: Saved
Uncomfortably Creepy (yes that should be a genre): May
Smart Comedy: The T.V. Set
Sci-Fi Thriller: The Butterfly Effect
Documentary: The King of Kong
Smart Action Comedy: In Bruges
OMG I can't believe that doesn't happen in real life: Open Water 2
Foreign Horror: High Tension
Funny Horror: Dead End
Gross Horror: The Human Centipede
Let's Teach our kids better: Brokedown Palace
Documentary: Word Play
Didn't we watch this in English: Rec & Open Your Eyes
Hard to Watch: Senseless
Yikes, kids these days: Funny Games

Those are some good ones (and some good genres too ;)). Give 'em a try and give me your feedback (beyond the "Kutcher is a douche" please).

It looks like the new season of Damages is being added as the episodes air on Direct TV in the US. So far they have the first episode. Hopefully they'll keep up with the whole season!
