Put some Anime on to watch with the missus.  Episode 2, half naked 11 year-old asking high school student to massage her with oil.  When he says it's weird she says "It's OK, I'm a vampire.  I may look like a child but I'm actually older than you."  Nice loophole, Japan. 

She didn't believe me when i said I had no idea of the plot :lol:

Mike loves that stuff. He keeps trying to get me to watch it. I assume he's some Internet Cop trying to catch me in a sting or something, rather than you know... him being strange.

Netflix's streaming catalog is about to lose nearly 2000 movies.

As of May 1, 2013, Netflix will officially have 1794 fewer titles in its streaming repository. Now, before you freak out too much, this isn't as bad as the Great Netflix Starzageddon of 2012. After Netflix and Starz were unable to renew their streaming agreements with one another, more than a 1,000 films — including many of the newer films in Netflix's streaming catalog — disappeared from the service.

This time, most of the titles (you can see the full list here) are inconsequential and include titles such as Caged Fury (yes, that's a real movie starring Erik Estrada) and 1998's Deep Impact. Still, we're also losing Cruel Intentions, which makes my 16-year-old heart break into thousands of tiny pieces.

For his part, Brobible's Andy Moore will be doing a viewing party for Big Daddy tonight.

So why are these titles leaving Netflix? Licensing. The titles belong to Warner Bros., MGM and Universal and will soon only be accessible through the Warner Archive Instant service. Yeah, I didn't know about that service either. Apparently for $10 a month you can get a selection of streaming films only slightly better than what Redbox Instant offers. Who knew!

While this purge might not be of Netflix's most important titles, it could be a sign of things to come. Earlier this month, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said that he was considering letting a broad television deal with Viacom Networks lapse. That would mean that shows from Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1 and BET could all disappear from the service at the end of May.

Now, losing Cruel Intentions is one thing, but if I lose Teen Mom and SpongeBob SquarePants, I'm seriously going to be unhappy.

What sub-par Netflix movie will you miss the most? Let us know in the comments.

UPDATE, Tuesday, April 30, 8:46 p.m. EDT: Joris Evers, director of global corporate communications at Netflix, has reached out to Mashable, providing the following comments.

"Netflix is a dynamic service, we constantly update the TV shows and movies that are available to our members. We will add more than 500 titles May 1, but we also have titles expiring, this ebb and flow happens all the time."

"We are selective about what’s available to watch on Netflix. We often license TV shows and movies on an exclusive basis, so we can provide a unique experience. We’ll forego, or choose not renew, titles that aren’t watched enough. We always use our knowledge about what our members love to watch to decide what’s available on Netflix. Our goal is to be an expert programmer, offering a mix that delights our members, rather than trying to be a broad distributor.”

Things like this always happen.

Netflix has proven that a service for movie/tv digital distribution is popular and profitabble, so now all the movie and TV studios want in on the act. Yet, they're totally missing the part where it was the cross selection of movies and TV shows that made Netflix such a great option and value for money. Will anyone really want to pay up $10 per movie studio streaming service?

It's $10 a month for that Warner thing I think.

Yeah, that's what I was saying.

Why do they think it's worth that? The draw of Netflix is it's content, which is a very large selection of TV and Movies from various studios. I can't imagine very many people are going to spend the same amount of money on each distributor platform if they take all their content from Netflix to try their own DD service.

I'm going to nail breaking bad in my months free trial for netflix then probably cancel. Don't see much point having it beyond that, I've seen all the decent films that seem to be on there. I'm not really a TC series kind of person. If I am I'll atch it when it's on, going back and visiting any Ive missed doesn't seem like a valid use of my time.

Aslo, I caught the gf laying watching Donnie Darko II on it ffs. I'm gonna get rid just so her arse doesn't balloon.

Yep, press X for "Add to my list" or whatever and it'll create a new row called "My List" for the stuff you've queued.  I had to restart my Netflix to see the new row mind.

No way to rearrange it? Chucked loads of TV shows in there assuming it would update as I watched stuff from it, but it hasn't so naturally the more obscure stuff's at the front.
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Instead of remaining in a static queue (or suffering entirely random changes) Netflix is applying its algorithms to users lists, automatically sorting each one by what it believes people will want to watch next. Director of Product Innovation Michael Spiegelman says in a blog post that members preferred this feature in tests, but if you're committed to the DIY method then it can be disabled in favor of manual sorting.
