Netflix Canada Selection: 207 Movies Worth Watching (2014 Update)

The long awaited part deux!

The long awaited part deux!

My post about the selection on Netflix Canada (from three years ago) is the most popular post on my blog. It’s viewed at least once a day, every day. That means a lot of people are interested on what’s worth watching on the service, and unfortunately, I’ve neglected to update the post because I thought “hey – I already directed people to check out New on Netflix and Instantwatcher, two Netflix title crawlers that do a better job of listing titles than I do.”

Alas, in a bald attempt to increase my page views, below is my selection of movies on Netflix Canada that you should check out (or put in your Netflix lists). Note: going through the list, I already noticed that some of these movies will expire this week (looking at you, Donnie Darko and Requiem for a Dream), so watch ’em quick! Also, I haven’t seen all of these movies, but the word I’ve heard about most of them is that they’re good/cult favourites/solid action/funny/scary. Enjoy…and watch as this post melts into obscurity in the next month!
