Oh, I love that movie, too.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is on Netflix Instant for you Newman and Redford fans.

What a neat little scene. :) The young actress, was she in The Graduate?

Mmm. More Redford and Newman eye candy! I don't get Netflix, sadly.

Katherine Ross was in "The Graduate", with Dustin Hoffman.

Oh yeah that's her.

My wife loves Harrison Ford and Sean Connery (and Paul Newman and Robert Redford). She says they're "manly". I guess I'm chopped liver. She thinks Mel Gibson is over rated in the hunk dept..

No Netflix? I love Netflix -- no movies to return, just $8/month. Sure they don't have every single movie/TV show on there, but they have enough to keep me busy for like a gazillion years. Amazon Prime Instant Video is pretty good too.

What's the last movie you watched?

Being out here in the sticks, our internet service consists of Verizon, which happily assigns overage charges along with its outrageously expensive monthly fees. Watching movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or anything else, is not an option. I can barely check my emails, DC, and FB! We do have DirecTV satellite, which is also exhorbitantly expensive.

Your wife has good taste, BTW.

Aw, thanks, I will let her know. :)

You can still use Netflix. They will physically mail you the DVD's. It's $8 a month for the 1 disc at a time plan and $12 for the 2 discs at a time plan. And the turnaround is fast. So if you watch a movie and return it, you should have the next movie on your list in like 3-4 days. So you could probably receive and watch like 8 or 9 movies a month if you want.

Plus a benefit of the physical disc option is that they have pretty much everything. Whereas, instant streaming is very limited in terms of selection. You don't even have to pay return postage. The discs comes with return prepaid red envelopes.

As for internet, there is satellite internet even out to the sticks which is about $60 a month and it's pretty fast, but you are capped at about 40 GB's of data use (or about the equivalent of watching 20 Netflix movies). I am not sure how much they charge for more data. Probably could add extra data onto it.

Good info, JD! Our little subdivision is trying to get the townie cable company to come out here, but I suspect we're stuck with Verizon, or Hughesnet (shudder).

Once upon a time we had Netflix. Signed on for it pretty much right after it launched. It started around $8 a month, eventually going up a buck or two before "The Split", when they announced in the news that the service would now split into two, one for DVDs on a tiered cost system (more discs, more bucks) and one for online streaming...at $8 each. This with no advanced warning to their loyal customers. I. Was. Ticked. Hopped on the library website and checked, title for title, the names from our Netflix queue against the library's list. Every single one of those movies was available at the library. For free. Well, Himself's motto is "if it's free, it's for me", so I cancelled Netflix. Have never looked back. We're happily working our way through all the DVDs we might ever want to see through the library. They have a total of nearly 10,000 to pick from when you count regional sharing. Not bad. I like to think of it as my tax dollars at work.

You're lucky. I don't have a TV. I get my movies from a, er, ahem, well, I call it my pirate site.

It was painful to watch all the movies on the 2008 crash. I watched Margin Call, Inside Job, and now The Big Short. I don't think I could stand to watch Madoff and know all those people lost their money and retirement funds at the end.
As I get older I find I no longer want to watch shows where children are hurting and hungry, people suffering, homes destroyed, people killed. I think that is one mini series I am going to miss.

We went to see Kung fu panda 3 with kids. Not as much for the movie sale but rather for the seats experience. We have D Box seating. It's like a roller coaster ride. Seat shakes and moves with the movie action. Was not worth extra $8 bucks per seat. And the movie, who cares about stupid cartoon to begin with .
