Netflix Movie Fans

does anyone know how to request movies that Netflix doesn't carry? I am looking for an old movie from 1995 called Angus. It is a coming of age movie starring Perry Anzilotti, Kathy Bates, and George C Scott. It is probably one of the best coming of age movies that I have ever seen but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Pretty sure Angus is out of print. Amazon has used copies, but no new ones.

At any rate, you can request titles at Netflix by going to Contact Us at the bottom of each page, and then clicking on Title Request.

If you can find out for sure if it's still in print, you may want to try to include a link to a retailer when you make the request.
Kelly,
I Just found Angus in VHS on e- Bay's Half . com it was $10.00 good luck.

What a sweetie-pie you are John! Just thought I'd mention it.
Hi Kelly,

Photo heathen answered your query but you can look anything up on IMDB.com (usually up-to-date) to see the DVD Details link to confirm whether it's out.

I have a Blockbuster Movies list that contains all the title requests I've made that Netflix still lists as Saved. A few others keep their own Saved lists. Netflix does fill in requests, presumably as the market allows; I've seen come requests get filled within few months and others languish for much longer. Some things are just not available and a number of things we'd all like to see on DVD, the studios have not yet acted in that direction. (Duckman, wherefore art thou?!)

Good luck on your searches. I do occasionally check the online catalog for my public library system (since it's across the street from my front door) and find things there, among other places. Ciao!
That request link is dead. Have they updated it?

I've searched for a half dozen things in the last week that they don't carry and are still available.
Netflix no longer takes requests via e-mail. We've been told that the large majority of the requests were for titles that either weren't available on DVD or are now out of print. Probably became too expensive to man that communication point for such a small return.

And remember, available to you and me might mean unavailable to Netflix as they have to supply a chain of 11 million hungry members.
Some of the titles I have requested are available on Amazon on demand rental. I don't understand if Amazon can let me rent a digital copy, why can't Netflix send me the actual dvd, or make it available digitally. I really do not believe their lack of selection is purely because the title is generally not available. They should let us, their customers, tell them when we can find the product elsewhere.
There are several titles in the Instant Watch catalog that aren't available on DVD. For it to be available on DVD, someone has to actually author and press the damn things on top of having the rights to do so.

And if Amazon has the rights to the digital version, it's unlikely that Netflix has the rights to the same movie.
I just went and picked 10 movies at random that are in my instant queue and Amazon in demand had about half of them for rent. So I believe for the most part Amazon and Netflix can both have rights to the same movie.

Don't get me wrong I love Netflix. I just think it is unfair they have disabled the request link. I think the request link was a good way for the customers to communicate with Netflix and help Netflix better serve the needs of the customer.
Yes, but there are more people who "Abused" the request system then there are people who take the time to do some research.

When it was disabled (over a year ago) the reasons given were primarily that people would request movies that were already available, or would not know titles, but would give generic descriptions of what they remember, expecting Netflix to figure it out. A LOT of time was wasted every day, as the bulk (9 out of 10) requests received each day were not useful.

Also you have to keep in mind that Amazon is a for profit retailer, they charge a fee for each digital movie you download, and you only get limited access to it.

Netflix is a discount online movie rental company, that offers you unlimited viewing, unlimited rentals, for a fixed monthly fee.
