    I realize this article is old, but in addition to the wrong Red Lights being linked, the same is true for Bully.

    Does anyone know if the DVD version of Oldboy is worth watching? The version they have on instant is dubbed so I couldn't get past 10 minutes.

  • Cinemaniac | June 12, 2013 10:55 PM

    Yes, it is. I own it. It's in its original language with English subtitles.

  • Jessica | June 11, 2013 2:34 PMReply

    Is this a story or an ad for Netflix? Hard to tell the difference.

  • Ramone | June 17, 2013 2:26 PM

    No, but it's extremely helpful for people who use Netflix (like myself) and want to find good movies to stream. It often feels like there's nothing left but filler once you've seen it all, so I greatly appreciate this list!

    The "Red Lights" avaliable on Netflix Instant is not the same on your best of the 00s list. It's the one with De Niro from 2012.

    WARNING: Oldboy is dubbed because idiot company do this.

    Anyway, Y Tu Mama Tambien should be no. 1 because it's my favorite film of all time.

  • Edward Copeland | June 11, 2013 5:59 PM

    Maybe I should have read the comments first, though that doesn't say if H is just talking about the version available for Instant and not the one on DVD as well.
