"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

  1. great for seeing the future, but how does one see whats already been released?

  2. Buck: Glad you like the release schedule, but as for what's already been released, we don't have the resources to keep a compiled list like that. However, if you go on over to Rotten Tomatoes, they have a list of current and past streaming releases.

  3. Your digital release date page is exactly what I've been looking for ever since I dropped my Netflix DVD sub!

    I used to use Netflix's DVD queue to keep a list of movies I wanted to rent/catch that were not yet our on DVD or rental stream (since it allows both a normal queue and not yet released one), but after I dropped them, they dropped me, and killed that queue – even though I still have a streaming sub : (

    For whatever reason neither Netflix streaming nor Amazon Prime movies offer a way to do anything but add to your list of movies that are already available, with no way to list upcoming ones.

    Your page just solved that problem. Thanks and bookmarked!

  4. Your dates are wrong on some
