As far as new releases go, they almost always suck... I put them in my queue, but there's so many great movies in just the last 10 years I haven't seen, it's never an issue and when a new release comes in, it's a nice little surprise. I'd say that about two movies are released per month that I would even consider wanting to watch.
But here's my problem... bad DVD's. Now, on three different occassionas I have received defective discs, a problem I had not encountered in my first few months of membership.
The first two didn't play at all, so I reported them damaged and they sent a new one out right away. That is nice.
But this week I rented the Brazilian film "City of God." I had heard it was good, and although I have consistently loved every foreign film I've seen, I'm always a little reserved about getting them... I mean, I don't watch movies so I can read, but they're almost always fantastic.
So, I start watching City of God and right away I was enthralled... the film is an absolute masterpiece. And half way through... BOOM! Can't read disc.
Now THAT's a buzzkill. I'm waiting for a replacement to come in now. Don't tell me what happens if you've seen it. I just hope that bastard Li'l Dice gets whats coming to him.
(I recommend the movie if you can stand to read subtitles... it's fantastic... so far).
