    Eh, they're missing a ton of Criterion films actually.

    All of the nat geo docs are solid...the North Korean one is the best IMO.

    I've not tapped into the Nat Geo stuff yet so will give that a go.

    With football season almost over, the viewing options open up a bit.

    Just watched City Island the other night, and it's one of the only movies I gave a 5 rating to. It's kind of quirky, about a semi-dysfunctional family. Star-filled cast (namely Andy Garcia, Julianna Margulies and Alan Arkin). Personally I think it's one of Garcia's best performances... it's a tough role and he pulls it off. Highly recommend it.

    BTW - what do you guys use to stream? We just got a Roku XD a while ago even though we have an XBox (don't want to pay for the Live membership). I love it so far.

    For me, The Pianist was the last straw. I decided that I am absolutely over any movies dealing with the Holocaust or man's inhumanity to man. Sick of it. Hate it. Depressing and no fun. Same with third-world landscapes and people living in dirt, a la Babel.

    The true name is indeed The Horror Show. But I lovingly refer to it as House III, as it was indeed its working title and I believe in Europe and perhaps Australia? I'd have to check IMDB.
