On the Sci-Fi Super Friends Podcast, we exclusively use this streaming service to watch, review and rate films. Some are gems, but a whole lot are "stinkers". Until now I just thought it might be a matter of luck to find something new that won't cause wailing and gnashing of teeth.
In this article, Jason Gilbert at the Huffington Post, put together a great list of tools for finding quality movies and shows to watch on Netflix streaming service:
1. A Better Queue - http://abetterqueue.com/
2. RottenTomatoes Netflix Filter -
3. InstantWatcher - http://instantwatcher.com/
4. InstantWatchDB - http://www.instantwatchdb.com/
5. The Pivot View - http://netflixpivot.cloudapp.net/#%24view%24=1&%24facet0%24=Rating/BWA5f
6. WhichFlicks - http://www.whichflicks.com/browse#/?watchNow=1&mpaa=15&sort=02
7. Streaming Soon - http://www.streamingsoon.com/p/newest-streams.html
I'll likely use one or more of these tools suggested by Gilbert to help find movies for veiwing. But it seems like a mixed blessing. The only flaw I see with these strategies is that, for us, our podcast often has a great time reviewing a "horribly bad" film. I'm afraid that the ability to find only the best in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror movies, would take a lot of the fun out of the podcast for us! Hell, I recently, picked a movie for review by literally flipping a coin. Perhaps I'll only use these tools for my own personal veiwing and not for the Sci-Fi Super Friends Podcast.
