More queue filling suggestions

If you are new to Netflix, and need help filling your queue, start by looking at their award-winning movies lists. If you have seen any of those movies, rate them. Rate all the movies you have ever seen. Keep in mind that, for movies you rate a 3 or above, Netflix will recommend more that are similar to those.

If the recommendations don't work, Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia has a couple of interesting lists you might find inspirational:

    Yes, the most important point from this entry - rate all movies you have ever seen -- *even if you did not see them from Netflix.*

    Try to remember back to movies you have seen, over time - before you even joined Netflix.

    Becky, is there a way to rate movies that are not yet out on DVD? For instance, let's say I see a new movie in the theatres... And I want to rate it.

    Check the Netflix database often. They frequently add titles soon after they open in theatres.

    I should add that everyone should rate the movies they hate, too, to prevent Netflix from recommending similar ones.
