Every time fall kicks in and winter is on the horizon, Stef and I begin to create our movie queue. We sign up for NetFlix in October or September and keep it for 3-4 months since the winter weather forces us to remain inside more ofton than in the summer. It works out well - we cram a year's worth of catch-up into 3 months.
Well, the time in near, and we are about to sign back up. The question I pose is: What's the best deal I can get when signing up? I know there are some promos that get you 1 month free or something, and there are some that give you free stuff (from a 3rd party) if you sign up for NetFlix or something like that. Anybody?
Also, any can't-miss reccomendations to throw in the queue? I don't have my list here, but I'll update this post when I get home, cause I know you are all on the edges of your seats.

whatever you do don't rent "be cool". that is one of the worst movies of all time, especially if you consider all of the A-list movies stars and publicity.
also, don't rent Lord of the Rings, Two Towers. I got it 2 days ago and it was cracked radially in 2 peices. then when i complained they said they didn't have anymore to send me.
the last good movie that no one seemed to notice or like was "Envy". I thought
"The Village" was better than everyone else too, i think that is out. "The office" season one is out. gotta go.

envy was ok, but i think they relied too much on the stiller/black combo. village was good.
also, i think if you sign up under somebody, somebody gets free movies. i'll look into it and send you an invite.

We've seen both Envy and The Village. They were both "eh" on the TBS.
Also, I forgot to look at our list at home.
SS - got your invite and will consider using it.
Stef (October 14, 2005 at 09:14:21 AM):
Yeah, but we're interested in the benies for US, not SS. If we sign up under someone, THEY get the free movies. Sorry, but you know how it is.
