We are not movie people for budget reasons, but do watch a lot of TV. For a few dollars a month, we can now watch the "talked about" TV series as well as some movies. We are new to Netflix, but it seems the movie selection is dated and perhaps more second tier movies. I haven't found a lot of Oscar winners or recent releases. I believe if you get the DVD Netflix there would be more of the blockbuster movies available. Our lifestyle doesn't really warrant that expense. Our TV is older and has no internet access, so we purchased a Roku 3 which opens up some additional options in addition to the Netflix.
