    I know Beyone is great, but how do you justify giving her doc a 10+ point advantage over All the Pres Men & Bonnie & Clyde—2 films on the American Film Institutes' list of 100 best of all time?

  • garmin

  • bacluci  

    Eu gosto muito das series originais da Netflix, porem em filmes originais ainda não apareceu nada bom.

  • getwiththetimes  

    "this is just the good stuff" They will never show you when Clue (1985) is available.

  • netflix-usa  

    For people outside the USA, you can watch a lot of content using a VPN (Very Private Server). It's not too difficult to do. Of course don't try it if your pop corn is already cooked loll.

  • GustavoWoltmann  

    Nice, i love many of these, they're really good
