Catfish (2010)

DVD arrived from Netflix yesterday. And yes, I still have the DVD service because their streaming catalog went to shit once they started paying for original content.

Netflix still offers DVDs? You sure you aren’t being catfished?

Seriously though, I do respect that. Their streaming offerings aren’t the worst, you can typically find a few good ones in there. But it definitely favors TV (which makes more sense to stream anyway).

Flippin Groundhogs Day all over again, yet something is slightly difforento.

Hang on, how do you review a filum you haven’t watched next before seeing it? Although it happens before a release on Amazon.

Their streaming offerings aren’t the worst, but they’re pretty bad compared to where they were a few years ago…especially for major studio releases.

I don’t know if I completely agree. For instance, they have a deal with Disney where they now get new movies shortly after the home video release date.

The Netflix DVD catalogue is far more extensive than their streaming, and titles don’t magically disappear, so it’s always growing. It’s also very profitable for them. No “still?!” about it. Plus, physical media will always be superior.

Probably The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

I’m interested in watching the first four Chainsaw movies back-to-back to see how they compare to one another, and I already watched the first one last night.

You will be disappointed.

I don’t know how profitable it is, and I’m sure we could reach a point where streaming approaches the quality of physical media, but otherwise I agree.

Shame this service isn’t available in Canada.

It’s not just the quality of the video, streaming doesn’t come with any bonus material, commentaries, and ownership. That’s part of what I meant about superiority. Of course, with Netflix you don’t really have the ownership part, but I’m still not quite happy with the internet tether and variabilities in quality streaming has.

I had read Netflix’s DVD service is still profitable, and have further read from various other sources that they have no plans to end it, but of course this may change down the road. It still has a user base of around 5 million people, and they keep refining their centers to help reduce costs, so ending it doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

Yep. Can you check for the avaliblitey of Japans original Godzilla flicks without english dubbing on them?

I would like to think as much as the industry is pushing to view everything streamed online of late. I’m hoping the public shunn this and follows what people really want like LP’s are now making a comeback.

Go check yourself. Even if that particular Godzilla movie isn’t there, streaming has no Godzilla titles at the moment.

If I want to buy a title (less and less these days) I want the physical disc, for the quality, convenience, and bonus features. But if I’m just watching on Netflix, streaming is a million times more convenient if they have it available.

That’s very recent. So I guess you could say the quality ticked up very slightly from where I said things were previously.

Well maybe, I don’t know, I’ve never really noticed much of a difference in over all quality at any point (besides when it was first starting up and there was almost nothing worth watching at all). I don’t tend to look for specific things on streaming, more like browse to see what’s there that’s good (and to me there seems to be a fair amount).

My “still?” was just a joke. I really liked the DVD service and only have streaming now just out of convenience.

It’s almost unfair to compare the two. They have practically everything you could ever think of on disc, while their streaming line up is subject to all sorts of liscensing.

questionable grammar of the topic title

I think it is okay. It is basically future passive: “Next movie seen (by me) will be X”.
