The original 1922 movie. True classic.

The composition and the usage of 1922 tech is just astounding! This is the full length, US version, released in 1929. As there's no sound, the only difference between the original, 1922 German version, and this, are the dialogue cards.

Few modern films are anything close to this standard, all CGI, colour, sound, and modern technology notwithstanding...

In a court case, Bram Stoker's widow, Florence Stoker, got a ruling to destroy all copies of the film.
A few survived...

Currently watching Queen's Gambit. I can't believe this fictional mini series about a chess prodigy is so compelling. I have zero interest in chess but am really loving the show.
Started watching this based partly on your comment. You aren't kidding! There hasn't been a bad episode yet, I think I'm 5 or 6 in. Excellent.

I am a pretty avid chess fan/player and was surprised when I started seeing photos of a very pretty girl on almost every chess web, not saying that there aren't pretty women chess players but it turned out to be the actress for this show which I finally watched, the best part imo is the fact that the producer or whomever also is a very serious chess person and had done the movie searching for Bobby Fischer which I think they used a lot of his life for inspiration in the series.BUT as far as shows I do like the more cutting edge shows and have watched the first season of zero zero zero I actually think it might be on amazon prime but its got a lot of hooks.

Since I'm a pilot, friends got me hooked into watching "Ice Pilots - NWT" on Amazon Prime, but it shows as being on Netflix too. https://flixlist.co/titles/80118614

"Ice Pilots - NWT" is a reality television documentary series about Buffalo Airways which is an airline based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Buffalo flies WWII-era propeller planes year-round in the Canadian North and has to deal with snow, ice, engine failures in flight, to remote settlements, etc.

I'm thinking seriously about canceling Netflix. Their new price increase is jut a bit over the top. $18/month to stream second run movies is too much. The only redeeming feature is the series. There are other options.

Through 2021 Warner Bros will be releasing their entire slate of 17 movies on HBO Max. Sounds like a bargain. Available to stream on the same day as the theatrical release. Matrix 4, Dune remake, Godzilla vs. Kong, and The Sopranos, amongst others. Afaik not available in the UK.

That is the premium pricing. Maybe you should evaluate if you even use the premium features and if not drop to the standard plan for $14
If you mean simultaneous multiple streaming, we do it all of the time. Family would need to make adjustments, which seems silly for $4/month. On the other hand, $18/month doesn't!

There are many options for sure, but given the amount and quality of content on Netflix it still seems like the biggest bargain out there. I don't think Hulu, Prime, Disney+, HBO Max and AppleTV combined surpass it. Those are the services I have or have tried. Traditional network TV is laughable, not in a good way, as is most of what's on "cable". Sports is still a draw for traditional TV service, but even that is slowly being unwound. If I could unbundle my cable tv from my crappy wifi service I'd be done with it in a flash.

That being said, if you can get by with less "content", more power to you.

We have Cable Disney +, Starz Streaming, Amazon Prime, not to mention all of the stuff on Roku. Many of these were obtained through special deals. We got Starz through some college student deal from my son.

I suspect that if I cancel Netflix there would be a considerable gnashing of teeth for a short period, but it would eventually subside and life would go on. If I were to just drop to the basic plan I'd end up having an argument every time two of us wanted to watch something at the same time. This would be in perpetuity.

In any event, I can't cancel it until I've finished The Queen's Gambit!

Definitely finish Queen's Gambit. Good stuff for sure. I'm sure you're right about having no Netflix being way better than the basic plan and family strife. Our house has 3 people and 3 floors. Each of us having a living space may be all that gets us to the other side of covid-related togetherness in one piece.

Glad you're enjoying it. There's also a ton of Youtube videos analyzing plot and design details (lighting, colour, wardrobe, make-up) in the movie.
