"So in short, Netflix doesn't send captions that your TV can understand."

I'm confused because I get Netflix movies all the time that play with CC on my TV.
My TV is set for CC (all the time)
My DVD player is CC capable.

The only thing I have to look for (at Netflix) is if the description says it's CC or SDH and everything is fine (99% of the time if NF hasn't screwed up)

I must be misunderstanding your comment.

"The Rise of the Guardians". It was cute, but I wouldn't let small children watch it. Scary.

Is it just me, or have animated movies gone downhill? Frozen was just OK, I wasn't impressed, but it has gotten rave reviews. Back in the day, I loved the Jungle Book, Snow White, and many others. Finding Nemo is the most recent one that was really quality. The animated movies nowadays just don't seem as good.

We just watched the latest Star Trek, Into the Darkness. I liked it. I think they did a great job finding actors to live up to the originals. Simon Pegg as Scotty is an inspired choice. We recently watched 21 Jump Street too, which made me laugh a LOT! It's neat to see how quickly high school popular criteria changes. The cameo with Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise was AWESOME.

I think we liked them more then because we were kids Dawg. As far as the old ones being "good" for kids, I cried for days over Bambi and Dumbo. What the heck was Walt thinking killing Bambi's mother, and taking Dumbo from Mama?

Yes, Bambi was a real tearjerker, the book too. And poor little Dumbo! But the quality was so good. Some time ago, I rewatched Snow White, and was amazed by the animation and story.

I think my 6 year old niece would be pretty upset by Guardians. Frozen got to her too.

Dead Man Down. Quite possibly the longest movie I've ever seen. At least it felt that way.

Had never heard of that one, will wait for it to be on cable and will likely not watch it anyway!

We are watching Shaft with Samuel L. Jackson...Shrek was downhearted that I recognized and hollered out Richard Roundtree before he did.

Slowest action movie I've ever seen, Fi.

Watching Stake Land right now.
