5 stars for Netflix Streaming

The Netflix streaming service continues to grow and add new subscribers each month. Netflix's total subscriber base now tops 40 million. As pay cable networks such as Showtime and HBO lose customers at 4% per month, Netflix is adding them at a rate of 3% subscriber growth per month.

Netflix streaming simply offers a better product for a lower price. HBO for example typically costs about $20 per month. For this you do undoubtedly get access to some great shows such as Game of Thrones but Netflix has seemed to catch HBO and Showtime by producing their own high quality programs. For only $8 per month for Netflix you can see their own must see shows such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

In addition to compatible self produced shows, Netflix beats the pay cable services in the breadth of the movies and TV shows they make available to stream each month

This article will list some of expected new releases coming to Netflix streaming in March and will be updated periodically as new release information is found.

Although Brokedown Palace has the feel of a made for TV movie at times, the acting is done well and the tension is held at steady pace throughout the film.

Although only 31% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave Brokedown Palace, 68% of viewers gave the film favorable reviews.

Blair Witch Project Trailer

The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project is the film that started the hand held camera filming craze.

The Blair Witch Project is one of the rare movies in which critics appeared to like the film more than viewers. Likely critics appreciated the originality of the film. Although it's you standard horror fare the hand held aspect does make the film quite interesting.

In addition, the was a short period in the film's original release where many audience members were under the impression that the film was true and actually true. Viewing the film as though it was true certainly makes it a much creepier experience.

The Blair Witch Project will be available in March on Netflix streaming, make sure to watch it with the lights off!
