Awww they won't be able to watch the Street fighter movie!!! (First one) I am kinda shocked at a few titles on the list, but yea this happening to a lot of them just saved a lot of time for a lot of lucky people that haven't seen these movies.  
Munching On: Warframe, Final Fantasy 6, Tales of Xallia, Saints Row 4.

Top Gun, small indie film. Lol!

Yeah, Miller's is a great flick. I've always been conflicted with Gabriel Byrne, but he does a great job in that one.

And yeah, Serpico is brilliant. That whole period was great for gritty cop flicks. Bullit, The French Connection 1/2, The Seven Ups, The New Centurions, Fort Apache The Bronx, Electra Glide in Blue, Dirty Harry, etc.

The ones I bolded are generally less known but bloody good films. The Seven Ups is probably my fave of the lot. Then again I always loved Roy Scheider.

James Woods: Oh that's fun. That sounds like you had a fun time. Where would I fit in with the fun time, huh? Where does James Woods fit into the fun?

Well, those movies aren't off Netflix YET, but there are only a few days left.

I was watching Serpico last night, and I was amazed at how different the structure of the movie is vs. modern movies. Many scenes are just snippets, relying on the audience to be smart enough to fill in the blanks instead of spelling everything out. Overall, a great movie and one to catch if you can before it's gone on Jan 1. Here are a few from the list that are pretty good:

- Brick (Rian Johnson's amazing debut movie starring Joseph Gordon Leavitt)
- Being John Malkovich (Spike Jonze)
- Braveheart
- Capote
- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (more Spike Jonze)
- F/X (awesome thriller back in the day)
- Miller's Crossing (Coen Brothers)
- Requium for a Dream
- Rob Roy (better than Braveheart IMO)
- Serpico (Pacino)
- Top Gun (small indie film that launched the career of Val Kilmer)

Definitely watching Miller's Crossing again tonight. The Coen Bros are masters.
