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.

In addition, a much smaller number of titles can be streamed to the subscriber over the Internet.

Before George Lucas became famous, he co-wrote and directed an excellent movie titled THX 1138starring Robert Duvall. Now a restored directors 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.
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.

Movies can show fierce battles, high-speed chases, and horrific explosions that most of us will never experience in real life, and I think such sequences properly used make films far more emotionally engaging.

For the sake of focus, I've limited my choices to English-language talkies.

I would describe the movie The Notebook as an unabashedly romantic tale about love, memories, and death. It's a weepy, but I believe it's one that men can connect with. It's based on a novel by a man, the screenplay was written by a man, and the director is a man. The story chronicles one otherwise-quite-ordinary man's uncompromising love.
Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn star in the 1938 screwball comedy Bringing Up Baby, which was directed by Howard Hawks. The story is about a nerdy paleontologist, a madcap heiress, a pet leopard named Baby, a vivacious wire-haired fox terrier and a brontosaurus bone. Although Grant and Hepburn play characters that often look ridiculous, the two lead actors pull off the neat trick of always retaining their glamour.

Die Dreigroschenoper was a big hit on the Berlin stage, and in 1930 a movie company began the process of adapting it for the screen. The film director was G.W. Pabst, whose movies were among the most artistically successful during the 1920s. Pabst's films are marked by social and political concerns, which made him a good fit for the Brecht-Weill material and helped him to add the proper visual dimension. The movie version of Die Dreigroschenoper, which was released in 1931, is a masterpiece.
