6 Things You Should Know About Renting From...
Netflix provides a movie and television programming rental service at flat monthly fees. The company has no brick-and-mortar stores, and instead interfaces with its customers via the Internet and the United States Postal Service. A large number of titles are available on DVDs and Blu-ray discs that will be delivered to the subscriber by mail. In addition, a much smaller number of titles can be streamed to the subscriber over the Internet.
How to Rent and Watch Movies from Amazon on...
Amazon is America's largest online retailer. The company's primary business is selling a wide variety of goods — especially books, DVDs and music CDs — that are ordered on their Website and shipped by mail or package delivery services. But they also offer some products that they deliver digitally to customers who have a broadband Internet connection.

"THX 1138" DVD
Before George Lucas became famous, he co-wrote and directed an excellent movie titled THX 1138starring Robert Duvall. Now a restored director’s cut of that film is being released as a superb two-disc DVD set loaded with worthwhile bonus materials. A single-disc version is also available, but missing most of the extras. With either DVD version you'll get a first-rate movie and an excellent commentary track, but I recommend the two-disc version because of its terrific bonus materials.
Streaming Movies and Television Programming...
In addition to receiving optical discs via US mail, all Netflix subscribers are permitted, at no extra cost, to stream movies and television programming over the Internet to their PCs. The big advantage to this method is that the content can be viewed almost immediately, but there are major drawbacks.

I only knew a little about Los Angeles poet and novelist Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) before seeing the fascinating film Bukowski: Born Into This (2003) on DVD. Having heard so much about his drinking and fighting, I was surprised that in the documentary he comes off as likable. About 45 books of Bukowski's writings were published in his lifetime. He wrote six novels, two of the best-known being Post Office (1971) and Ham on Rye (1982). He also authored many poems and short stories.

Sunrise Movie DVD Review
F.W. Murnau's classic Hollywood silent movie Sunrise is on many lists of 100 greatest films, but it has been rather difficult to see for many years. At last Fox has released this great movie on a DVD that comes with some nice extras, which I've listed below. However, to the best of my knowledge, as of the time of this writing -- March, 2003, it's unlikely you'll be able to buy or rent the Sunrise DVD at a regular store or order it from a major online retailer. In the last paragraph of this article, I'll describe a way of getting the DVD through January 31, 2004. But first I'll give a brief discussion of the film. Read a review of Sunrise on DVD, a masterwork of silent film directed by F.W. Murnau.

Minnie Driver is captivating as Benny, a spirited, but rather plain, young woman who doesn't want to stay in her Irish village for the rest of her life. She manages to go away to college in Dublin, where she falls in love with the handsome Jack (Chris O'Donnell). This is a bittersweet film that I believe captures how it must have felt to come of age in the 1950s.

This is my personal, idiosyncratic list of favorites, and it doesn't necessarily reflect the popular wisdom on action movies. For the sake of focus, I've limited my choices to English-language talkies.
