Is Netflix The Antichrist?

The fact is that Netflix makes watching an old movie very easy: two clicks on your computer screen and it’s done. And with more Internet-friendly TVs being purchased these days, that two-click approach can give you what you want on the big set. That said, I’ve been a little disappointed since I re-joined Netflix to take advantage of the instant-access feature to find that a lot of my favorite movies (“The Philadelphia Story,” “Tootsie”) are still not available.
