    Iron Giant on repeat.

  • efonsecajr  

    Great!

  • bacluci  

    Eu gosto muito das series originais da Netflix, porem em filmes originais ainda não apareceu nada bom.

  • getwiththetimes  

    "this is just the good stuff" They will never show you when Clue (1985) is available.

  • netflix-usa  

    For people outside the USA, you can watch a lot of content using a VPN (Very Private Server). It's not too difficult to do. Of course don't try it if your pop corn is already cooked loll.

  • GustavoWoltmann  

    Nice, i love many of these, they're really good

  • ehkaim  

    The previous comment from HateSpammers indicates that coverage of Amazon Prime is also available. Where? What am I missing?

  • HateSpammers  

    Oops! Or maybe I should have looked at the bottom of this list (and right about this comment box) to see that indeed it does exist for Amazon. How did I not know about this?

    So ignore my previous comment. I'd like to see it for Hulu, but Amazon Prime was more important, so yay!
